The agreements signed in Rome by the Chairman and CEO of the Danieli Group, Gianpietro Benedetti, refer to a joint venture and orders for the supply of machinery and plants to be installed in the territory of Iran.The joint venture, Persian Metallics, with an estimated worth of €2 billion will involve a group of international, as well as Iranian, investors.
