Smeal Professor Discusses Iran’s Kish Island on CNBC
December 6th, 2010 - 6 Comments
Smeal’s Fariborz Ghadar, director of the Center for Global Business Studies, sat down with CNBC’s Erin Burnett this afternoon to discuss Iran’s Kish Island, a free trade resort island in the Persian Gulf. In the 1970s, Ghadar served as the president of the Export Promotion Center for the Government of Iran during the Shah’s reign. During that time, he was responsible for all non-oil exports from Iran and “created the rules for the Kish free zone,” says Burnett.
