    I'm starting to get bullish on Iran, I think the sanctions and Syria are just a distraction of what is inevitable longterm.

    I spent 3 weeks traveling through Iran last May and was very impressed with the level of sophistication and development. All the observations presented in this interview ring true. A very misunderstood country with huge potential. I've been looking for a way to invest there.

    Ps Iranian hospitality is the best out of 90 countries I visited. If the air pollution wasn't as bad I might have stayed;)

    Thanks for the high quality and humble interview. During my visit to Iran two years ago I was indeed impressed by how modern the young generation is. Great opportunities for investors!
