China’s National People’s Congress Secretary-General Wang Zhan said his country is eager to cooperate in developing the third phase of Pardis Technology Park.

Speaking during a visit to Pardis Technology Park in Tehran, Wang lauded the park’s high standards and ranking, Mehr News Agency reported.

Wang, who also heads Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences, said the academy has been located in Shanghai since 1995 and due to the existence of 54 technology parks in China, cooperation with Pardis Technology Park is feasible.

A memorandum of understanding signed between Iran and China indicates that Chinese high-technology firms will cooperate independently in the third phase of Pardis Technology Park.

The park has been officially called the region’s “paradise of technology” and aims to become the Silicon Valley of Iran. The park is home to several knowledge-based firms, startup accelerators and Internet businesses.  

It is affiliated to the government’s Science and Technology Department and supervised by a 14-entity Board of Trustees comprising corporate and real bodies from ministries, scientific centers and academies headed by First Vice President Es’haq Jahangiri.

The park pursues the commercialization of research and establishment of sustainable ties between tertiary academic sector and private industry.

Located on a 38-hectare plot, the site has been built in two phases.
