Australian Water Partnership (AWP)
In March 2017 AWP agreed to fund a proposal for providing a plan for the Iran-Australia Water Program to the Iran Minister of Energy.
"Iran and Australia have signed fresh agreements to forge closer ties, with Australian Trade Minister Steve Ciobo announcing the dawn of a new age of relationship. Ciobo is leading a trade delegation of more than 20 companies to Tehran, seeking out opportunities, buoyed by the prospects in Iran's mining, oil and gas, and other industries as well as the near 80 million population...Australian Water Partnership seeks to capitalize on historically strong economic ties to stake out a share of business opportunities in Iran."
