Iran May Be Running Out of Time to Attract Foreign Investment

By INU Staff
INU - On Monday, Reuters issued a new report on the recent appointment of Ali Kardor as the head of the National Iranian Oil Company.

Kardor is reportedly a close ally of Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh and the Rouhani administration in general, and his occupancy of the lead post in NIOC could help them to overcome hardline opposition as the country looks forward to the prospects of foreign investment and expanded relations between the Iranian oil industry and European markets.
