Investors see potential in Iranian mines

Almost 500,000 people are now employed in a growing sector that accounts for 8 percent of foreign capital.

Foreign investment in Iran has reached an all-time high this year, according to the UN’s World Investment Report.

Although the country’s economy is based on oil and gas revenue, the mining sector has more employees than the petrochemical industry.
