BMI View: As the majority of international sanctions have been lifted faster than expected and new historicdata has been released, we have upwardly revised our construction industry growth forecast for Iran in2016 from 3.2% to 4.5%. The lifting of sanctions is resulting in the gradual return of private investment aswell as improving Iran's access to funding for projects. As such, we expect the country's risk profile -particularly in the financing stage of the project life cycle - to continue to improve.

Latest Updates And Structural Trends

- We forecast 4.5% y-o-y real construction industry growth in Iran in 2016 and an average of 6.1% overthe next five years as a result of the lifting of international sanctions and strong demand for infrastructure.

- Persistently low oil prices - our Oil & Gas Team forecasts Brent to average USD46.5/bbl in 2016 - willreduce government revenue, limiting public spending in infrastructure.

- As we expected, the lifting of sanctions is already having a positive impact on Iran's capability to financeinfrastructure projects. Reflecting the reduced risk in the financing stage, Iran now scores 34 out of 100 inthe Financing Risk pillar of our Project Risk Index (PRI), from a previous score of 18.8.

- Although we anticipate investment opportunities across all sectors, railway projects will attractconsiderable interest, as evidenced by the announcements that the Islamic Republic of Iran Railways(RAI) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with German Siemens for cooperation in therail sector. The MoU includes projects such as Tehran-Mashhad railroad electrification and theconstruction of Tehran-Isfahan high-speed railway. In addition, state-owned Russian Railways (RZD)signed a USD1.28bn contract with RAI to electrify a 495km railway line. The contract is funded by aRussian government credit allocation to the government of Iran.

- Greater competitiveness in Iran's labour market will be required to support growth in the constructionindustry. Although Iran's labour force is highly educated by regional standards, high labour costs willcontinue to pose a structural barrier to investment.

- Despite an improving outlook for Iran's infrastructure sector, the country will continue to presentchallenges, including elevated political risk, macroeconomic weaknesses and corruption.
