The bank has recently participated in several large financial deals between the Islamic Republic of Iran and China, South Korea, Austria and Denmark.
The bank’s first agreement was with South Korea's Exim Bank, worth 8 billion euros. According to the contract, various economic projects of the country can receive long-term foreign exchange facilities at a very reasonable cost.
The second contract was the $35 billion credit line for Iranian banks provided by Chinese banks to invest in the country's projects.
Furthermore, a 1.5 million euro deal was concluded between Iranian banks, including Bank Melli, and several Austrian and Danish banks.
