Following the elimination of unfair sanctions, the negotiation between OIETAI and the Central Bank, and also the possibility of using this facility for other sectors of the country, including roads, power plants and etc., the credit rose from €5 billion to €8 billion and was signed in Seoul in August 2017.
The 12 Iranian agent banks include the Export Development Bank, Parsian, Eghtesad Novin, Pasargad, Refah Kargaran, Saman, Sepah, Bank of Industry and Mine, Meli, Melat, Tejarat and Karafarin.
