Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture (ICCIMA) has opened the country’s first Export Acceleration Center in Tehran with the support from Iranian Vice President for Science and Technology.

The first branch of the center was inaugurated on Sunday in a ceremony attended by ICCIMA President Gholam Hossein Shafei and Iran’s Vice-President for Science and Technology Sorena Sattari.

“We are hopeful that the opening of the center would facilitate export of Iran’s services and high-tech products,” Sorena Sattari said, adding that the government is ready to provide “any kind of support” for knowledge-based companies and export-based startups.

Iran Export Acceleration Center accommodates several startup teams including a platform which facilitates medical services, and online exhibition of medical equipment and pharmaceuticals and an international marketing company.

“Businesses undoubtedly cannot preserve their market shares if they stick to traditional and old-fashioned solutions,” Gholam Hossein Shafei said addressing the ceremony.

“The opening of Iran Export Acceleration Center is an auspicious beginning for devising modern and up-to-date solutions for boosting Iran’s exports with the help of knowledge-based companies,” he added.

The newly established center will expand its branches to five provinces until the end of the current Iranian year (March 20, 2020), according to Hoessin Selahvarzi, ICCIMA first vice president.

A memorandum of understanding (MoU) was also signed between Karafarin Bank and the ICCIMA for financing startup teams that are focusing on accelerating Iran’s exports. Karafarin Bank CEO Mohammad Reza Farzin and Hoessin Selahvarzi signed the MoU.
