Iran has 13 active ports where over 35,000 commercial ships and vessels dock annually, which shows the huge potentials of marine industries for benefiting from the technology ecosystem and in turn, propelling the digital economy.

Recently, the Academic Center for Education, Culture and Research announced plans to expand the tech firms’ reach in shipping industries.

Hamidreza Tayebi, the head of ACECR, made a daylong visit to Kish Island to extend support to technology-based firms seeking to operate in the maritime sector, ISNA reported.

Tayebi and Gholamhossein Mozaffari, CEO of Kish Free Zone, signed a contract to designate a section of Kish Central Cultural Complex for accommodating tech firms and startup teams.

Speaking at the signing event, Tayebi said today, a country’s strength reflects its ability to promote knowledge and convert it to technology for practical use.

“Developing technologies is a reliable foundation for realizing a knowledge-based economy,” he added.
