Iran’s economy under COVID-19 and sanctions: How bad is it? (www.atlanticcouncil.org)

As the global community continues to grapple with COVID-19 (coronavirus), the Atlantic Council is open for business. All business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please view a statement from our President and CEO.

After a period of growth following implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Iran has plunged into a serious recession. US secondary sanctions, including an attempted embargo on the export of Iranian oil, in addition to the impact of Covid-19 and endemic corruption, have combined to present the Islamic Republic with some of its biggest economic challenges in decades. At the same time, Iran has diversified its economy so that it relies more on services than oil and it has expanded trade with neighbors. A growing private sector competes for capital with state-run entities, including businesses controlled by the Revolutionary Guards.

Please join the Atlantic Council’s Future of Iran Initiative for this timely discussion on Iran’s economy on June 26, 2020 from 9:30 am -11:00 am via Zoom. A link will be sent to those who register. The event is open to press and on the record.
