TEHRAN – The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) platforms can pave the way for distribution network for entrepreneurs in every part of the country, the head of the Information Technology Organization of Iran, Amir Nazemi, said, Mehr reported on Thursday.

The ICT infrastructure can solve the problems for society challenges like education, which may not have the same quality in all parts of the country, he said.

The ICT infrastructure can provide systems for education, testing and assessment, he explained.

He said that ICT can also help the entrepreneurs as well as those who manufacture a product but cannot develop their distribution market like rural women produces handicrafts, he said.
