He also talked about the infrastructural support of knowledge-based companies based on this agreement, expressing: We have huge infrastructure that is costly to build for many companies. These infrastructures are provided to companies, with legal and infrastructure protections also being considered.

The minister of defense emphasized the use of large reserve of knowledge and technology of knowledge-based companies in the field of defense technologies, affirming: this memorandum will open up both the defense and the knowledge-based sectors of the country so that we can transform the economic sector as well, because there are sectors of defense that can be used in the business and economic sectors and mutually the capabilities of technology and business can be defensive.

Hatami continued: meanwhile, free financial and military interactions are the right of all countries. The enemy is trying to deprive our country of these basic rights in a cowardly and cruel way and does not spare any effort to harm the people in the shadow of economic terrorism. We will move step by step and build the country by relying on ourselves. The youth are determined to create the needs of the country with their own initiative and hands.

The minister of defense pointed out the efforts made to maintain deterrence and dignity in the country as we make scientific and technological progress. With achieving progress, both in the fields of military and business, while adhering to the statements of the Supreme Leader and the president on the cooperation of these two sectors, the suitable result of this agreement will be soon unveiled.

The president for the national elites foundation stated: we have technologies and innovations in the private sector that are created for the purpose of defense, but have defense potential. One of the clauses of the agreement is to build the capacity to collaborate and bring these technologies into the defense industry, and we also have technologies in the defense sector that are not confidential and can be well commercialized and create added value.

Sattari emphasized: the Vice-Presidency paves the way for development of knowledge and technology by supporting the products manufactured for the first time, covering the risk of technologies and supporting the first steps to expand the knowledge border.
