A top Indian executive will manage a high-level committee consisting of business delegates from Afghanistan, Central Asia, and Russia. Iran will deliver a report on the benefits associated with the Chabhar port to the delegates in the meeting. “Iran is looking at this event as an opportunity for businessmen, traders, freight companies, and national and international liners from various countries,” said an Iranian official.
