July 14, 2018

Tehran – A delegation of Iranian experts will travel to Ethiopia, Uganda and Kenya from September 3 to 7 to discuss technology and trade cooperation with the east African countries.

The delegation is composed of knowledge-based companies active in fields of agricultural machinery and input; health, medicines and medical devices; IT; industrial machinery; building material and polymers; mineral industry and processing industry, ISNA reported on Wednesday.

Officials from the Export Development Bank, the Trade Promotion Organization, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Health, and the Ministry of Agriculture will also accompany the delegation.

According to weforum.org, as Africa transitions from the margins to the mainstream of the global economy, technology is playing an increasingly significant role. 

Bolstering regional trends in business, investment and modernization is the emergence of an IT ecosystem – a growing patchwork of entrepreneurs, tech ventures and innovation centers coalescing from country to country.
