From around 98,000 economic and industrial production units, only 2,000 or about 2% have a research and development department. 
This is a huge gap that should be bridged if production units want to operate in the international markets, Barat Qobadiyan, deputy industries minister for training, research and technology affairs said.
“At present, our universities have 80,000 faculty members and more than 1.2 million postgraduate students. We can use their expertise to overcome shortfalls in our economic and industrial units,” the official was quoted as saying by IRNA.  
Advanced countries are investing more and more in R&D to keep up with the ever-changing dynamics in global markets.
