TEHRAN (Tasnim) – A broad variety of Iranian industries are benefitting from the assistance and technical know-how provided by the Defense Ministry, a spokesman said.

Pointing to the policies to support the private sector, the spokesman said more than 2,000 items have been produced with the help and know-how offered by the Defense Ministry.

He noted that the ministry has also carried out many technical and research projects in cooperation with 1,200 domestic knowledge-based companies.

On the projects in the ship manufacturing industry, the general said the Defense Ministry works on the production of vessels with deadweight tonnage of 1,000 to 10,000 tons.
