An agreement to establish a joint venture to produce rolling stock in Iran was signed on July 31 by Transmashholding and Industrial Development & Renovation Organization of Iran.
The companies plan to form a joint venture owned 80% by Transmashholding and 20% by IDRO. This would use the Wagon Pars plant to produce rolling stock using Russian financing.
