TEHRAN (Reuters) - Austria's bilateral trade with Iran will grow to 300 million euros this year, and continue to increase in the coming years, President Heinz Fischer said on Tuesday during a state visit to Tehran.

"We expect to boost our volume of trade to 300 million euros in the short term, and we then look forward to markedly increasing our economic relations," he said in a joint news conference with his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani.
