AEOI spokesman says time is ripe for partnership of private sector in nuclear industry

IRNA — Spokesman of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Behrouz Kamalvandi said on Monday that today the private sector can step in and be present in different parts of Iran’s nuclear industry.

Speaking to reporters, Kamalvandi said that Iran’s nuclear industry has reached a point of maturity that it can stand on its own feet.

The nuclear industry which used to have the support of the government, now have reached a point that it can stand on its own feet and the private sector can step in.

The nuclear industry is a strategic and high-tech industry and the companies which participate in this sector need to get familiar with the complexity of the work and create international links, Kamalvandi said.

Referring to the good atmosphere following Iran nuclear deal, he said that Iran’s nuclear industry will take up further pace in the future.
