In the past few years, Iranian officials have taken the role of provincial infrastructural development in the growth of communication technologies and startup ecosystem more seriously.
They believe that the move toward a knowledge-based economy requires nationwide and harmonious efforts.
According to Shahriar Behnia, the head of the Information and Communication Technologies Office in Kermanshah Province, since the beginning of the current Iranian year (March 20), the ICT Ministry has invested over 4 trillion rials ($17.8 million) in developing the communication infrastructures of less developed provinces, IRNA reported.
“The money has been spent on streamlining mobile networks and landline telephone services, equipping schools with smart technologies and developing modern banking services in the province,” he said.
Behnia added that the supported ICT fields will employ around 230 people by the current yearend (March 2020).
