The spokesperson of the 13th government announced the approval of a regulation prohibiting the use of non-native products or services in the field of information technology in executive bodies.
The Board of Ministers of the 13th government today approved a new regulation to support knowledge-based and job-creating production in the field of communication and information technology and the country’s digital economy. With the approval of this regulation, all executive bodies will no longer have the power to use or buy non-native products and services in the field of information technology.
“Ali Bahadri Jahrami”, the spokesperson of the 13th government, announced that the Cabinet of Ministers approved the regulations for supporting knowledge-based and job-creating production in the fields of communication and information technology and the country’s digital economy with the aim of fulfilling the decree of the year of leadership on “production, knowledge-based and job-creating”. According to “Jahromi”, with the approval of the aforementioned regulation, all executive bodies are prohibited from buying non-native products or services in the field of information technology. In the text of the regulation, an annual increase of at least 20% of knowledge-based products and information technology units is predicted.
The spokesperson of the government said that one of the contents of this regulation is the creation of a specialized information and communication technology customs office in Payam Special Economic Zone. This action can facilitate the export of products and services of knowledge-based companies and the field of information technology. “Jahormi” emphasized that one of the current needs of the country is the continuous and principled training of human resources specialized in the fields of digital economy, information technology and space industry.
