Yazdan Seif, who heads Iran's Government Trading Corporation (GTC), noted that the approach taken by GTC in international engagements and presence in world markets for exports and imports of goods was based on international tenders since, in addition to creating transparency, they would give equal opportunity to all interacting companies,” he underlined.

“Over the past two months, the same strategy has brought top managers of world’s most prominent and most reputable grain companies to Iran for holding joint meetings with directors of Iran’s GTC,” noted the official.

In the meantime, managers of Bunge Limited, Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), Olam International and KAMO Grain Inc. have been among most credible international firms who made presence in the country and attended important meetings over the food sector.

Seif said at the meetings, the government’s policies at achieving self-sufficiency in agricultural production and the trend of boosting production in strategic products such as wheat, rice, oilseed, sugar beet and cane were explained and addressed seriously.
