To accelerate the country's march toward developing new technologies, Iran is expanding its tech ties with other countries.
The recent visit of a Chinese delegation headed by Song Tao, the head of the International Liaison Department of the Communist Party of China, to Pardis Technology Park in the east of Tehran was in line with the objective, the website of Vice Presidential Office for Science and Technology reported.
The two countries have a shared history of trade relationships. However, the former has always pictured Iran as merely dependent on its natural resources.
Tao says, "We have always thought of Iran as an oil and gas exporter, without realizing that it has become a producer of cutting-edge technologies."
During his visit to an exhibition of technological products at the park, Tao said Iranian advances in the fields of science and technology are impressive.
