Iran ranks 1st in science in region: Vice President

Bushehr, Jan 21, IRNA - Iran's Vice President for Science and Technology says Iran ranks first in science in the region with about 4,000 knowledge-based companies.

In a trip to Bushehr on Monday, Sorena Sattari said, 'In knowledge-based economy, technology companies had around $14.25 billion worth sales in the last Iranian year (started on March 21) which we hope they will sell more than that by the end of this year.'

He stated, 'Bushehr, although its scientific infrastructure is young in the area of universities, is considered an important province.”

Sattari announced, “Considering the existence of oil and gas, fisheries, tourism and other capacities that the Bushehr province is leading, the pursuit of knowledge-based economies is very important.”

He went on to say that what's happening in the knowledge-based companies, universities, centers of innovation and science and technology parks should affect people's everyday lives so that they can benefit from the knowledge.
