Tehran The policy of developing domestic products amid cruel sanctions is considered as an opportunity for Iranian producers and the Ministry of Industry, Mine and Trade is now following up indigenizing over 10b euros of products and equipment over the next Iranian calendar year.
Accordingly in line with the policy of promoting Iranian products, the Industry, Mine, and Trade Ministry has signed MoU with the office of Vice President for Science and Technology Affairs and Ministry of Science, Research and Technology, as well as Iran National Innovation Fund.
