In the year of 138 BC, the emperor of the Han Dynasty commanded Zhang Qian to a mission to the western regions. He opened the famous Silk Road. He probably never thought that the meaning of the silk road would stand for more than the route itself now, more than 2000 years later. The silk road is given a new life today.
The First Iran-China Silk Road Economic Opportunities Seminar was successfully held on September 8th, 2016 in Shanghai, organized by IRANCHAM-Shanghai and TPO Iran and aiming at enhancing and strengthening bilateral cooperation and boosting the new fields of joint investments between the two countries.
