Iranian 30-member trade delegation in India to boost bilateral ties

Iranian 30-member trade delegation in India to boost bilateral ties

The delegation comprised of managers of petrochemical, steel, food, mining, machinery, and transportation industries.
 
Iranian Chamber of Commerce, Industries, and Mines Chairman Gholam-Hossein Shafei is the head of the delegation.
 
In a meeting with the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) Vice Chairman Jyotsna Suri, Shafei emphasized removing problems in visa issuance for the Iranian traders.
 
He said Iran and India can boost trade ties in petrochemical, oil and food industries.
 
The Indian government has decided to get moving on the long-delayed construction of strategically critical Chabahar port in Iran that would give India easier access to Afghanistan and Central Asia through a shorter route that would also mean being able to avoid Karachi in neighboring Pakistan.
 
India and Iran had decided on the project in 2003, but the venture failed to make much headway because of U.S. sanctions on Iran, even though port construction was exempted from the sanctions.
 
India was the 4th biggest importer of Iranian non-oil goods in the previous Iranian calendar year, which ended on March 20, 2014, according to the Iran Customs Administration.
 
Iran exported $2.417 billion of non-oil goods to India and imported $4.31 billion of non-oil goods from the country.
