According to its official website, the Summit is being co-sponsored by Clyde & Co for the purpose of “examining the opportunities and challenges surrounding Iran’s reintegration into the global economy” and to explore “what steps should investors take as they navigate through a changing business landscape….” (Financial Times, “FT Iran Summit 2016”).
