Head of Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council (INIC) Saeed Sarkar announced that the country ranks 4th in the world in production of high-quality nanotechnology products.
“Iran ranks 4th in the world after China, the US and India (in production of nano products) quantitatively and qualitatively with efforts of its human resources and it stands above all European states,” Sarkar said on Tuesday.
He underlined plans to increase the exports of technological products in the nanotechnology field to boost Iran’s share in the global market.
Sarkar had announced last year the country’s huge progress in manufacturing and exporting nanotechnology products.
“Fortunately, we are witnessing that nanotechnology products are being exported to over 45 countries of the world and we are witnessing the growing flourishing of this arena,” Sarkar told FNA on the sidelines of the 12th International Nanotechnology Festival and Exhibition in Tehran.
He added that last year, Iran had planned to lead the nanotechnology exhibition towards industrialization, and said this goal has been attained by the 50% increase in the number of companies participating in the exhibit.
