The BICC: Bridging Business With Iran

On our website, you will find information about doing business with Iran, the role of The British Iranian Chamber of Commerce, our counterpart in Tehran, as well as details about services and membership.

The Reopening of the Embassies in London and Tehran

The BICC very much welcomes the opening of the two embassies, the British embassy in Tehran and the Iranian embassy in London. Functioning embassies are a precondition for improvement in trade between the two countries. We believe that there can be a recovery of British trade with Iran, as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action is implemented.
