The development and use of smart solutions and the internet of things in Iran are growing, although much work is needed to expand the application of technologies, especially for managing natural resources, the information and communications minister said. 
Addressing a conference held on Monday on smart solutions for energy management, Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi also praised domestic tech firms and startups for their efforts to expand the technology ecosystem.
"The IoT sector has seen a twofold expansion in the past several years," Jahromi was quoted as saying by the ministry's website.
IoT is the extension of internet connectivity into physical devices and everyday objects. Embedded with electronics, internet connectivity and other forms of hardware (such as sensors), these devices can communicate and interact with others over the internet and can be remotely monitored.
"Tech aficionados have successfully completed the idea development stage and produced several innovative products. Now it's the right time to facilitate their presence in a broader context in the domestic market," Jahromi said.
