Iran, Armenia to Broaden IT Cooperation

Iranian Minister of Communications and Information Technology Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi in a meeting with his Armenian counterpart Hakob Arshakyan in Yerevan vowed to further develop bilateral relations.

During a meeting in the Armenian capital on Tuesday, Azari Jahromi underlined the need to accelerate the implementation of an agreement for building special park for IT companies and startups in Armenia.

Referring to a recent visit of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to Armenia, the Iranian minister announced that President Rouhani has ordered to double the volume of cooperation between the two countries.

“Iran and Armenia can cooperate in the field of data transmission, support of start-ups as well as supply of skilled labor forces (outsourcing) with each other,” Azari Jahromi said.

Arshakyan, for his part, expressed his gratitude to Azari Jahromi for his visit to Yerevan, and noted during his visit to the 2019 Digitech Exhibition he paid a visit to the Iranian Pavilion and got acquainted with the Iranian start-ups present at the exhibition.

He underlined that Iran is an important partner for Armenia in the field of communications, and said that "Moghri" Free Zone near Iranian borders (Aras Free Zone) can be used as a suitable space for cooperation with Iran and creation of special park for Iranian companies.

Azari Jahromi traveled to Armenia on Monday at the head of a delegation of 20 Iranian start-ups. Attending the World Summit on Information Technology (2019-WCIT), attending Armenia Specialized Exhibition (2019 Digi Tec Expo), meeting with Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and Armenian Minister of Transport and Communication (Arshakyan) and other foreign counterparts and consulting to create a regional and international market for Iranian startups are among of the goals of the Minister of Communications' trip to Armenia.
