TEHRAN (FNA)- The number of Iranian companies registered in Turkey has considerably increased, a senior Turkish trade official announced on Wednesday.

"There are more than 800 registered Iranian companies in Turkey," Head of the Turkish Chamber of Commerce and Bourse Refat Hesar Cikli said in a meeting with his Iranian counterpart Gholam-Hossein Shafeyee in Ankara.

The Turkish trade official called on the two countries to increase the level of their trade transactions through expediting implementation of bilateral agreements.

Hesar Cikli pointed to Iran's growth in defense, petrochemical, oil and gas sectors as well as his country's advances in the construction and tourism sectors, and said, "In recent years, the two countries have made joint investments in these projects which are important steps for broadening the two countries' relations."

Shafeyee, for his part, pointed to the status quo of Iran-Turkey relations, and said, "Fortunately, the policies of the two countries' presidents are directing the two states towards presence in the regional markets with a population of 400 million."

He pointed to the geopolitical location of Iran and Turkey, and said, "The Turkish businessmen can gain access to the East Asian markets through Iran, while the latter can reach the European markets via Turkey."

On Tuesday, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said Tehran and Ankara can achieve their targeted $30 billion annual trade only through increased activity and stronger role of the two countries' private sectors.

"Targeting $30 billion of annual trade balance requires increased activity of the private sector," President Rouhani said addressing a meeting with Iranian expatriates and businessmen in Turkey.

The Iranian president explained that the time has arrived for the states to further cede their economic affairs to the private sectors, and said, "Today the Turkish economy is moving in the right direction by ceding economic affairs to the private sector and Iran's private sector should also feel responsible and step onto the scene of action in a proper way."

The Iranian president arrived in Ankara on Monday to discuss the latest developments on the international and regional scenes and explore new avenues for reinvigoration of all-out ties.

On Monday, senior Iranian and Turkish officials signed 10 cooperation pacts.

President Rouhani and his Turkish counterpart Abdullah Gul attended the official signing ceremony after holding serious talks on bilateral and regional developments.

The 10 cooperation pacts signed between Iran and Turkey included agreement on joint film production, agreement on cultural, scientific and educational exchanges, tourism cooperation programs, cultural heritage program, cooperation between the two countries' post organizations and cooperation between the two countries' standard institutes.

During his two-day visit to Turkey, the Iranian president is accompanied by Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, Road and Urbanization Minister Abbas Akhoundi, Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh, Communications and Information Technology Minister Mahmoud Vaezi, Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli, Culture and Islamic Guidance Minister Ali Jannati, Economy Minister Ali Tayyebnia and Governor of the Central Bank of Iran Valiollah Seif.

Iran and Turkey have in recent years increased their cooperation in all the various fields of economy, security, trade, education, energy and culture.

The two sides have exchanged several politico-economic delegations during the last few months.

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and a high-ranking political-economic delegation visited Tehran in January.

During the visit, Erdogan underlined his country’s enthusiasm for starting a new chapter in the relations with Tehran, and said Turkey is in dire need of Iran’s energy resources.

“We import oil and natural gas from Iran and those are strategic products that Turkey imports from Iran and we can receive them more (than before),” Erdogan told reporters in Tehran after inking several documents on cooperation with Iran.

“Given the fact that Turkey’s industries are making progress on a daily basis and rapidly, we direly need energy products, specially Iran’s natural gas, and we should take joint win-win steps,” he added.

Erdogan also called for the further expansion of bilateral economic ties with Tehran, and said there is a political resolve in Iran and Turkey to increase the level of their trade exchanges to $30bln in 2015.
