India-Iran PTA to be concluded by 2019 end: Iranian envoy

India and Iran can conclude a preferential trade agreement (PTA) by this year end as very limited formalities are to be completed, ambassador of Iran to India Ali Chegeni said recently. He, however, said the proposed Bilateral Investment Protection Agreement (BIPA) will take a little longer as details on this front need some more approvals and endorsement.

On the Double Taxation Avoidance Agreement (DTAA), Chegeni pointed out that this agreement has the approval of Indian Government whereas approval of Iranian side on this front is awaited.

The embassador was addressing an interactive session on business opportunities in Iran under aegis of the PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PHDCCI) in New Delhi.

In the last few years, over 26 memoranda of understanding (MoUs) have been signed between India and Iran to promote trade and economic ties, a PHDCCI press release quoted him as saying.

The bilateral trade between the two during fiscal 2017-18 reached $17.5 billion, which might go up to $35 billion in the next few years before hitting $ 50 billion with progressive and conclusive trade talks and agreements between both sides at the highest level, he added.

Barter trade between both sides should also be encouraged under a different trade mechanism, at least to promote and intensify trade ties on commodities in agriculture and pharmaceuticals, he proposed.
