IAJCC began in 2017. After years in commerce and Business, we realized a gap in mutual trade between Iran and Austria. Traditional business services were too complicated, time-consuming, and expensive to manage. We wanted to offer a platform that would offer numerous services to those who want to have better and more successful business cooperation with Iran and Austria.
