Japan plans investments worth USD 10bn in Iran

japan-iran-investmentJapan is planning to invest USD 10bn in Iran, split across various sectors, due to its interest in having an active presence in the country. The sectors of interest fall under the oil & energy industry, namely the petrochemicals, refineries and LNG sectors. While Japan was one of the major customers of Iranian oil prior to sanctions being imposed, overall Asian imports have risen sharply after the removal of sanctions from Iran. Japan's investment can be seen as a strategic move to improve its relationship with Iran, and to gain access to Iran's light crude and gas condensates.
