Bandar Abbas, Dec 5, IRNA – Shipbuilding is the backbone of the domestic industries with contribution to technology know-how and advances in different branches of the manufacturing sector, Managing director of Iran Shipbuilding and Offshore Industries Complex (ISOICO) Hamid Rezaeian said on Saturday.
