MP: Iran Aims Technology Transfer, Joint Production

Sobhani said in the new economic atmosphere, Iran should not be turned into the consumption market or a mere exporter of oil and energy.

He said, “Our goal should be formation of firm and durable ties with the world to the extent that joint investment and transfer of technology to the country should be made possible; on this basis, Iran should be turned into a hub of certain specific goods in Asia.”

Foreigners should not take Iran as the market of their end products, said the lawmaker, adding that the countries interested in cooperation with Iran like South Korea should be guided to investment, transfer of technology and joint production.

Regarding lifting of certain sanctions, Iran expects foreign partners to follow such goals in investment as joint production and export of goods to regional countries because crude sale should be avoided and through creation of value added, forex should be observed.
