Ghanbar Naderi, Press TV, Tehran Iran began its nanotechnology program back in 2001 and quickly became first in the production of nanotechnology and nano-science in the region and the Muslim world. It is now among the world's top 15, that according to the officials at the Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council. The INIC official told Press TV that Iran is also among few countries that have compiled a National Nanotechnology Plan. Being the 15th in nanotechnology, he says, is also a major progress because Iran was 59 back in 2000. Under Iran's Ten-Year Nanotechnology Plan, the priorities in nanotechnology development are energy, health, environment, water, materials and construction. Sarkar predicted that nanotechnology would be a multi-billion-dollar market and that under the right circumstances Iran should enjoy a 2% share of this lucrative business in the coming years. Asadifard said, however, that the ultimate goal is to create new job opportunities and generate wealth nationwide through the development of nanotechnology. Iran has been chosen to host the next Asia Nano Forum. The regional gathering will be held on the sidelines of the 4th International Nanotechnology Festival and the Grand Industries Exhibition.
