"Iran is already one of truck and bus manufacturer Scania's biggest markets. Now the company's CEO also wants to export Swedish working values to the Islamic Republic... Scania... was one of the companies that chose to remain in the country during the period of economic sanctions, which led it having a large part of the Iranian market for trucks and buses. The company's competitors today are mainly Chinese manufacturers... Scania's CEO Henrik Henriksson... visited Iran seven times last year - more than any other country. But doing business with Iran remains subject to risk, says the CEO. The remaining US sanctions, those which are not subject to the nuclear agreement, affect financing options. Most banks do not want to risk US fines and are biding their time, reports TT. "It is no secret that it is difficult to do business. Channels must be opened if the market is really to take off," said Henriksson. The Scania boss believes that his firm could double its exports, which are expected to reach 3 billion SEK ($336 million) this year, if financing was made easier."
