Iranian Entrepreneur Signs an Agreement with the IIUM

The Women's Council director in the Tehran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, and Mines (TCCIM) stated that an agreement had been signed between an Iranian businesswoman and the International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM). Fatemeh Moqhimi was accompanied by a delegation to Malaysia consisting of some members of the Council. She stated that they signed a draft with the Council and IIUM aimed to advance educational opportunities for women entrepreneurs. "In consideration of the increasing number of Iranian students who go to Malaysia we deemed it suitable to create some facilities through the TCCIM for students and IIUM agreed to this," she said. The details of these facilities will be announced later.
