Saeed Sarkar said at a press conference that Australia, China, Russia, Germany, Turkey, Pakistan, South Korea and the CIS are among the importers of nanotechnology products from Iran, IRNA reported.
He maintained that the council is planning to expand exports to more countries, adding, "This calls for active participation in international exhibitions, which is exactly what we are doing each year."
According to the official, the products which are exported are classified into 'laboratorial and industrial equipment' and 'materials and products'.
Sarkar referred to the holding of Iran Nanotechnology Day abroad, adding, "Last year, we held such an exhibition in China, which was then followed by a request from South Korea. During the event, we introduced ten nanotechnology products to Chinese and South Korean industrialists."
He added, "We intend to hold Iran Nanotechnology Day once again in China this year."
Last year, Iran and China signed a contract worth $1.5 million, Sarkar said. “We also managed to install 105 items related to laboratorial equipment for students at Chinese high schools."
He pointed out that advance payments have been made for nanotechnology agreements with China.
