Pointing to the launch of the business single window in the Tehran Chamber, the Minister of Economy announced the finalization of the preliminary agreements of the special economic courts and reminded: The subject of the Special Economic Court, which has also been welcomed by the judiciary, will be finalized by the end of Ordibehesht.
