A delegation from Algeria by the aim of getting familiar with the space of technology parks and defining future cooperation visited Pardis Technology Park.

According to the Public Relations Department of Pardis Technology Park, the delegation headed by Abdul Hakim bin Salih, Director General of the Agency for the Promotion of Algerian Technology Parks, and Yasin Haydoush, Director of Information Systems of that Agency, were accompanied by Algerian Ambassador to Iran and First Secretary of the Algerian Embassy in Tehran.

On the first day of the visit, the delegation went to the Oil and Gas International Exhibition and became acquainted with the pavilions of PTP's member companies.

On the second day, the guests attended a meeting at Pardis Technology Park with the presence of the President of the Park and Director of International Affairs, and became familiar with the Park's aims, visions, ongoing projects, and international and national responsibilities.

Abdul Hakim bin Salih, Director General of the Agency for the Promotion of Algerian Technology Parks, said about the technology parks of Algeria: "Algeria would have 3 main parks of which Sayedi Abdullah Park has been established only and started working."

He reiterated: "this park is active in the field of ICT and related incubators. Algeria is highly willing to work in the field of ICT."

Ben Saleh pointed to the potentials of cooperation with Iran in the field of ICT and stated: "among 3000 Iranian knowledge-based companies, 500 companies are active in this field. This provides very good capacities for two sides in order to define collaborative projects.”

Director General of the Agency for the Promotion of Algerian Technology Parks, also mentioned the current status of Sayedi Abdullah Technology Park in Algeria and said: "Sayedi Abdullah Park is active in the field of ICT and the other fields of the Park should be related to this subject. Nano-technology, Bio-technology, and Cybersecurity are some of the Park’s activities.”

In the following, the Algerian Ambassador to Iran pointed to the low volume of trade exchanges between the two countries and said: "only transactions of $24 million have been done between Iran and Algeria within last two years that is a very low amount.”

He also continued: "this volume of transaction for two Muslim countries with common cultural, political, and economic capacities is not suitable. Two sides have to try to increase the business relationship.”

At the end, cooperation in ICT and participation of the companies based at Algerian technology parks at Iran’s events were some of the suggestions presented at the visit. Also, cooperation of two countries in IT funds, import and export, electronic, Bio-technology and Nano-technology were the other suggestions for increasing the level of cooperation.
