TEHRAN (IFP)-Saeed Sarkar, the Secretary-General of the Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council (INIC), says the country is currently exporting its nano-products to a number of developed countries including the UK, Germany, Spain, Italy, Australia, Japan and South Korea.
According to Sarkar, currently some 420 certified nanotechnology products are being produced by 170 firms inside Iran.
"So we are now focused on the export of our nano-products. We intend to increase our share from global markets, and fortunately we are currently exporting them to over 45 countries now,” he said in an exclusive interview with Iran Front Page.
Iran is now exporting its nano-products to such developed states as South Korea, China, Australia, the UK, Germany, Spain, Italy, and Russia, he noted.
He also expressed hope that the country would be able to increase the quantity of its exports in coming years even though it has had considerable progress in the development of its markets.
"As of 2013, we have witnessed a 100% growth in the development of our markets each year. By March 2017, we managed to export IRR 7,000 billion worth of nanotechnology products,” he added.
Sarkar says the country aims to increase the value of its nano exports to IRR 30,000 billion by March 2020.
