ABSTRACT
This article talks about the economic opportunities facing Iran in 2006 in spite of economic sanctions. One of its new partners is Venezuela, which has signed a series of bilateral deals with Iran on oil, gas and petrochemicals development. These include a $1.6 billion joint venture--to be known as Venezuelan & Iranian Petrochemical Co.--between Iran's National Petrochemical Co. and its Venezuelan counterpart Pequiven. China has also fast-tracked to becoming a close partner of Iran.
