TEHRAN (Dispatches) -- Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei on Tuesday called on the Iranian government to lift the barriers that the young Iranian inventors are faced with.
Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks during a visit of an exhibition of knowledge-based Iranian companies and top technologies, held in Tehran.
During the two-hour visit, Ayatollah Khamenei visited 30 pavilions and talked to technologists and researchers about their latest scientific and technological achievements and projects.
High-tech medical systems in cancer diagnosis, haemodialysis, robotic surgery and neural prosthesis, laboratory equipment, Iranian-made vaccines and advanced drugs, jet engines, power grid control systems, oil and gas catalysts, deep water reconnaissance and drilling systems, steel tanks and tools, advanced optical, scanning, measurement, cutting, simulation and processing systems, industrial freeze drying and computer games are on display.
Ayatollah Khamenei underlined the need to diversify away from oil and its "cultural repercussions”. He said one of the complaints of the young participants of the exhibition was that sometimes the government imports the same product already made by them.
"You should not let these barriers challenge the active youths. Make as much as efforts you can in this regard, and I will help as much as I can,” Ayatollah Khamenei told Vice President for science and technology Sorena Sattari.
The Leader also thanked researchers, technologists and organizers of the exhibition and signed the event’s memorial book.
"We saw the brilliant manifestation of the Iranian talent and revolutionary endeavor in this exhibition and thanked God. The fundamental work to use high motivations and abilities must be pursued seriously. This is the most important task of government officials. Trust in God and go ahead with hope and enthusiasm; you will surely be able to put an end to the country’s economic troubles, God willing,” Ayatollah Khamenei wrote.
