Tehran, Helsinki Favor Broader ICT Coop.

Iran and Finland have expressed keen interest in boosting cooperation in the field of information and communications technology.
In a meeting with Finland’s Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Lenita Toivakka in Tehran on Tuesday, Minister of Communications and Information Technology Mahmoud Vaezi said the two countries would expand cooperation in the fields of research, development and applications, Mehr News Agency reported.
“Ties between Iran and Finland have always been strong and effective in various fields of politics, culture, science and economy. We intend to further develop mutual cooperation in the field of information and communications technology, as well,” he said.
Referring to the prominent Finnish companies with longstanding cooperation with Iran, Vaezi said Nokia is a well-known company that has been cooperating with Iran for a long time.
“Today, in cooperation with Nokia and France’s Alcatel-Lucent telecommunications equipment company, we will be able to further improve Iran’s activities in the ICT sector,” he said.
Vaezi noted that his ministry has planned many projects in the field of ICT in which prominent Finnish companies can participate.
“In addition to attracting investments, we must also welcome various technologies into the country and continue our bilateral cooperation with Finland in research and development,” he said.
The Finnish minister hoped that cooperation between Iran and Finland would enter a new phase after this visit.
“The implementation of Iran’s nuclear accord would provide ample opportunities for the development of ties between the two countries, particularly in the field of modern and clean technologies,” she said.
Accompanying a delegation of 70 representatives of Finnish companies mostly active in the ICT sector, Toivakka participated in the Iran-Finland Business Seminar held in Tehran on Sept. 8.
Information and communications technology is an umbrella term that includes any communication device or application, encompassing radio, television, cellphones, computer and network hardware and software and satellite systems, as well as the various services and applications associated with them, such as videoconferencing and distance learning.
