Ali-Ashraf Afkhami, Chairman and Head of the Board of Directors of BIM, announced that there will be a wide-ranging collaboration between BIM and KfW Development Bank in different fields. His announcement was made during the Financial and Economic Opportunity Analysis Conference, held in Frankfurt, Germany. The BIM Chairman, drawing attention to the positive conditions for BIM’s presence on the global stage, said that the KfW Development Bank has declared their readiness to collaborate with the Bank on infrastructural projects within the country.
