Amélia’s dual expertise (business and law) on international markets has long been recognized as she was invited to sit by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Canada on the board the Canadian Commercial Corporation (CCC) and has provided training to Team Canada members during various international missions. Moreover, she is the corresponding Canadian to UNIDROIT (UN agency based in Rome), which promulgates the best international business practices.

Amélia Salehabadi-Fouques speaks five languages.


    In light of the lifting of Canadian economic sanctions against Iran, the country has once again become an attractive market for Canadian SMEs. Indeed, with 80 million inhabitants and considerable needs in the areas of infrastructure, construction material, consumer goods, pharmaceuticals, agriculture, transportation, high-tech parts, and others, the Iranian market—already flooded by European countries—could become an important one for Canadian exporters and businesspeople.

    The webinar will give all willing players a chance to take stock of opportunities and legal restrictions of doing business in Iran for Canadian companies, with regard to Canadian and American laws.
