Overseas medical insurance policyholders who have relocated abroad from Iran to set up businesses indicate the country's economic development, the foreign minister has stated.
Manouchehr Mottaki is quoted by the Tehran Times as suggesting the "economic dynamism" generated by Iranian expatriate entrepreneurs is a sign of the nation's success.
Speaking at the Iran-Oman Joint Commission on Economic Cooperation in Muscat, the minister called on expatriate health insurance customers living in Oman to step up efforts to facilitate economic transaction between the two countries.
Meanwhile, expats living in countries bordering Iran could soon be able to visit the nation without requiring a visa, after Mr Mottaki announced the lifting of the restriction.
Hamsayeh.net reported that the move aims to strengthen ties and enhance communications between the countries of the Middle East.
Georgia is set to benefit from the measure, which has already been implemented for visitors from Turkey and Azerbaijan, the news source states.
