The two countries agreed for their respective central banks to meet and discuss ways to help businesses and trade during a meeting between Rohani and Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak in Putrajaya, Malaysia's administrative capital.
"The most important issue raised by the prime minister as well is to ease and accelerate activating the banking relations between the two countries," Rouhani said at a news conference after the meeting.
Rouhani, on an official working visit to Malaysia, said Iran would welcome Malaysian business looking to invest in Tehran.
"Iran is ready to welcome Malaysian oil, gas and petrochemical companies and to have them investing in the country," he said.
Rouhani's visit to Malaysia was part of his tour to the Southeast Asian region, with stops in Vietnam and Thailand.
