(Source: MEFA – 8th March 2018) – Gholam Reza Panahi, Deputy Governor for currency affairs at Bank Melli Iran (BMI), has met with officials of Spain’s Aresbank.

Pointing to the special potentials of the BMI in providing effective services to Iranian and Spanish businessmen, Panahi stressed on the development of broker relations between the two banks.

Given the fact that the customers of the BMI enjoy special privilege, the support of business activists requires the necessary support from Aresbank, especially in terms of accepting the bank’s credit for the benefit of Iranian exporters to Spain, he added.

Panahi also emphasized the development of activities aimed at obtaining short-term and long-term facilities, currency buying and selling, and currency warranties.

Luis Casado, managing director of Aresbank, appreciated the brokerage relations between the two banks, and noted: In recent years, Aresbank has been able to enhance relations and interactions with Iranian banks and companies to a significant degree,

The export and import capacities between the two countries are higher than the current level and banks play a huge role in this regard, he said, adding that Aresbank is ready to negotiate on short-term and long-term facilities.
