Iran can meet India's need to cement and petrochemicals, said Ebrahim Jamili, the chairman of Iran-India joint business council.
He said India is the main consumer of agricultural fertilizers and Iran is a main producer of such products, Iran's ISNA news agency reported on Jan. 28.
Signing a preferential trade agreement with India is necessary for Iran to boost its presence in international markets, he noted.
Iran can also increase technical and engineering exports to India, he added.
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.
