The share of knowledge-based businesses in the country’s economy has exceeded 9 quadrillion rials (about $34 billion) and since 2019 it has grown by more than 450 percent, he said.
There are currently 6,263 knowledge-based enterprises operating in the country, offering advanced products and services in various technological fields to domestic and overseas markets, and some of them have entered international markets, said Siavash Maleki, deputy director of the Funds.
Aeronautical maintenance, steel, pharmaceuticals, medical equipment, oil and gas are among the sectors in which researchers from technology companies have engaged, which has led to a reduction in imports.
