What industry? The "industry" as we generally speak of it exists outside of Iran. As much of the "industry" isn't going to do business with Iran (French government contracts aside), the point of an industry trusted alternate certification in Iran seems moot, doesn't it?
Iran has 1,000 software companies and its software industry is estimated to
be worth $100 million. IDRO, which has a turnover of $3 billion, is now
moving into IT, biotechnology and other high technology areas and
contributes 25 percent of Iran's industrial GDP. It employs about 100,000
That industry. I am no expert in Iran's economy, but Iran is a big country, rich or poor, its bound to have plenty of use with computers and software, and especially since there is a trade embargo with the US, there is much more chances of a local software development industry there � to meet their internal demand.
Of course, I could be wrong � well, I did warn you though, its that Friday feeling!
