Mirhosseini said that free trade zones can help promote economic relationship between Iran and India, reported Fars News Agency.
He pointed to the salient advantage of Iranian free zones for attracting foreign investment and added, “These zones are the gateway for developing and promoting Iran’s cultural and economic relationship with other countries, especially India.”
The North-South Corridor is the lifeline of trade and economic relations between the two countries of Iran and India, so that this corridor can play an important role in export of Indian manufactured products to the lucrative markets of countries in Northern and Eastern Europe, he stated.
The location of Chabahar and Anzali free trade zones as entry and exit origin of North-South Corridor and legal exemptions of these zones will play a significant role in the development of ties between Iran and India, he stressed.
Iran and India are the oldest and most influential countries of human civilizations in the course of history, which played a significant role in the promotion of qualitative and quantitative level of human civilization, Mirhosseini added.
Considering the history of activity and programs that the association has launched since its establishment in line with developing and deepening cultural, social and scientific relations between the two countries, it can be said that free zones are the first hubs for presence of Indian investors for producing and exporting their products to the domestic and regional markets, member of Iran-India Friendship Association emphasized.
