TEHRAN – Head of the Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture (ICCIMA) has stressed the need for establishing a joint Islamic market among the members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) over the next 10 years, the ICCIMA portal reported on Thursday.
Addressing a gathering of the heads of OIC member chambers of commerce on the sidelines of the “Russia – Islamic World: KazanForum 2023” in Russia, Gholam-Hossein Shafeie said: “An important issue that has been discussed a lot in the past and the organization should pay attention to it in the current situation is the creation of a common Islamic market in the next 10 years, which can be achieved by concluding a free trade agreement among Islamic countries and removing tariff and non-tariff barriers.”
“Experts have worked on the Islamic market plan, and using the experiences and studies of these experts can definitely be a way forward,” he added.
The Organization of Islamic Cooperation, which was formed in 1972, today has reached a position where, according to statistics, the future of the world’s energy would be in the hands of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, Shafeie said in his speech.
