As the Iranian government is now welcoming inward foreign investments more than ever before, the government has provided an optimal context for the presence of foreign investors in the country. Among the government’s attempts, the enactment of protective laws for foreign investors is the most prominent measure. The Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Act (FIPPA) has been enacted before the Iranian Parliament early 2000. Through FIPPA Act, the foreign investors by gaining the Investment License before the Organization of Investment, Economic and Technical Assistance of Iran (OIETAI), would be provided by considerable protection for entrance of their investment and capital into the territory of Iran, operation of their investment projects and extraction of the profit and even the capital to destined states.
