Online portal for facilitating Exim Trade between India and Iran launched
An Online Portal for facilitating Exim Trade between India and Iran has been launched today by Dr. Inder Jit Singh, Additional Secretary, Department of Commerce in the presence of H.E. Mr. Gholamreza Ansari, Ambassador of Islamic Republic of Iran, Mr. Khaleel Rahim, CMD, STC, and other Directors of STC.
The Hind-Iran portal (hindirantrade.org) is a joint initiative of STC and Douman Queshm, Iran. The objective of the trade portal is to disseminate information relevant to Indo-Iran Trade, and to provide an e-marketplace for the buyers and sellers of the two countries.
Addressing the gathering at the event, Mr. Khaleel Rahim said that Iran and India have enjoyed deep social, cultural, economic and political connections and relations that have enriched both countries. The two countries have grown closer in the turbulent times at the peak of the economic sanctions against Iran, when it was India which emerged as a valuable trading partner of Iran. The portal is aimed at bridging the communication divide which the business communities face, and which are very interested in trading with each other. Mr. Gholamreza Ansari also acknowledged India as a friend who stood by Iran in tough times, and supported this initiative.
