Sanctions Relief No Guarantee for Foreign Investment

Source: 7/1/2015, Location: Asia

Head of National Petrochemical Company (NPC) Abbas Shari-Moqaddam says setting long-term feedstock prices as well as providing petrochemical infrastructure and stabilizing regulations are the key levers to attracting foreign investors in the petrochemical sector, rather than the removal of sanctions.

"If we are to lure more investors into our country, we must ensure that three principles are observed: setting long-term feedstock prices, creating state-funded infrastructure and stabilizing regulations for investment," the official told Shana.

If these three principles are not considered, so long as investors will not be able to envisage a future for their investments, not many financiers are expected to enter into Iran even if the sanctions are removed, added the official.

He said there are 120 half-finished developmental petrochemical projects across the country of which 67 are prioritized by NPC for financing and operation.

He said the international restrictions on Irans economic sectors have held up progress in petrochemical projects, and expressed hope that once Iran reaches a nuclear accord with world powers, completion of the projects will be more seriously pursued by NPC.

Iran is expected to see its petrochemical production cross 180 million tons by 2015, a deputy head of National Petrochemical Company said recently.

Mohammad-Hassan Peyvandi said Iranís petrochemical production is to reach 44 million tons this year. That would make up 40% of Iranís non-oil exports.

He said a roadmap has been designed for Iranís petrochemical industry to realize its objectives.
