Iranian tech firms signed 12 agreements worth 3.21 trillion rials ($24.3 million) with state institutions during the Second Testa Reverse Exhibition held at Tehran's International Fairground in late December. 
Testa (a Persian acronym meaning "demand for Iran-made products") reverse exhibit, as the name suggests, is a reversal of the traditional trade show format where companies and institutions present their demands while the supplier tech firms walk the floor.
Over 20 large domestic enterprises set up pavilions in the event and representatives of 360 knowledge-based companies and startups, along with numerous tech aficionados, researchers and experts, visited them, Iran National Innovation Fund, a co-organizer of the exhibition, reported.
According to Siavash Malekifar, an INIF deputy, tech firms and startups signed agreements with Iranian Space Agency, Payam and Kish airports, Mahan Airlines, Iran Drug Control Headquarters, Headquarters for Combating the Smuggling of Commodities and Foreign Currency, West Asia Steel Company and Tehran Urban Innovation Center.
