Managers of Post Bank of Iran should put greater focus on promoting smart banking and digital economy by involving fintechs and startups, Information and Communication Technologies Minister Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi said in a statement on the occasion of the bank's 24th anniversary on Sunday.
Jahromi said PBI is expected to further strengthen the role of ICT in the banking sector and put the evolution of modern and smart banking on the agenda, the ministry's website reported.
According to the statement, BPI will boost the quality of its services and expand its presence in rural and underdeveloped areas.
Jahromi emphasized that the bank will accelerate its progress by giving more opportunities to tech units and knowledge-based companies for increasing their electronic banking operations. 
"Today, the share of tech-based firms in the domestic economy is increasing day by day. Banks, including PBI, should get involved and use this as an opportunity," he added.
