Iran ICT Minister on Cryptocurrency and Online Filtering

From plans to launch cryptocurrencies to the establishment of technoparks and increasing support for startups, Iran’s communication and information technology minister answered questions during an online press conference broadcast via the video streaming service Aparat.
During the conference, Mohammad Javad Azari-Jahromi also said, “An ICT Tech Park is being established in Mashhad and will be inaugurated in May to nurture the startup environment in the northeastern shrine city.”
The establishment of technology parks has topped President Hassan Rouhani’s agenda since he took office in 2013 and several technoparks have been set up in different provinces.
Azari-Jahromi noted that the startup environment must be nurtured in Iran and authorities should pave the way for the growth of such firms, adding that the ministry has prioritized the establishment of startup accelerators in all provinces.
The minister is of the opinion that in order to boost the growth of startups, the environment must be regulated, stressing that guidelines and incentives will be introduced.
