March 10, 2019

TEHRAN – An official from the African Union on Sunday called for more cooperation with Iran in nanotechnology as the bloc is making efforts to reach its so-called Agenda 2063, Africa’s strategic framework for the socio-economic transformation of the continent over the next 50 years.

“The condition for Iranian universities’ cooperation with African academic centers to implement the African Union’s vision is very good,” Sarah Anyang Agbor, the commissioner for human resources science and technology at the African Union Commission, told Hossein Salar Amoli, the deputy Iranian science minister for international scientific cooperation. 

The African Union commissioner praised Iran’s “considerable” scientific and technological achievements as well as women’s presence in various scientific fields, according to a report by the Islamic Republic News Agency.

The Iranian official, for his part, said his country is prepared to share its scientific and technological experience in nano-industry, biological technologies, engineering sciences and aerospace with African states.
