On September 9, 2016, our panelists Chris Bakemeyer, deputy assistant secretary for Iran at the US Department of State; David Mortlock, nonresident senior fellow with the Atlantic Council’s Global Energy Center; and Barbara Slavin, acting director of the Atlantic Council’s Future of Iran Initiative discussed the outlook for investment in Iran, the ongoing status of existing sanctions, and the broader context of US policy towards Iran. We delved into the implications of these trends both for policymakers and private sector leaders considering investment opportunities in Iran. Richard Morningstar, Founding Director and Chairman of the Global Energy Center, delivered welcoming remarks, and Yeganeh Torbati of Reuters moderated the discussion.
