Ambassador Gholamali Khoshroo

With the negotiations of the P5+1 complete after two intense years of negotiations, Iran is entering a new era of reintegration with the global community. Thanks to its 5,000 year old cultural history, educated population of 80 million citizens, and high number of women graduates, Iran is poised to benefit from an influx of international expertise and the availability of new materials and products including airplanes, medical equipment, and environmentally sensitive fuels. In turn, other countries now will have access to what will surely become one of the world's most lucrative emerging markets.   

Ambassador Khoshroo will discuss the P5+1 negotiations and how they will affect Iran and its people moving forward. A seasoned diplomat with a career-long history of service to Iran, Ambassador Khoshroo was his country's Ambassador to Swizerland from 2014-15. Prior to that time, he served as Secretary General of the Asian Parliamentary Assembly, and Deputy Foreign Minister for Legal and International Affairs. Ambassador Khoshroo also served as Ambassador to Australia and Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN. He devoted two terms to serving as Dean of the School for International Relations, affiliated with Iran's Foreign Ministry.
