• ICT Minister Mohammad Javad Azari-Jahromi (3rd L) presented an award to Hossein Fallah Josheqani, the head of Communications Regulatory Authority, in Tehran on March 12.

    Two private post operators were granted permits by ICT Ministry to offer services on the sidelines of the Seventh Information and Communications Technology Festival.
    To fulfill a long-awaited government promise of promoting the private sector in the field, two private companies, namely Tipax Company and Pishgaman Badpa Madani Consortium (aka Peyke Badpa), were licensed to offer postal services. The move is aimed at creating a more competitive market, which can boost the quality of services offered to customers, the ICT Ministry's website reported.
    The annual ICT festival was held concurrent with the ministry's anniversary in Tehran. The ministry was formed in March 1877 under the name of Ministry of Telegraph.
