Iran plans to rise its non-oil exports to Iraq up to $7.5 billion annually from the current $4.8 billion, the Iran-Iraq economic development center's secretary-general said here on Sunday.

"Iran mainly exports foodstuff and construction materials to Iraq," the Mehr News Agency quoted Hassan Danaeifar as saying on Sunday.

"Currently, over 8,000 tons of cement is being exported to Iraq daily," he added.
