EghtesadOnline: Payam Special Economic Zone's fourth development phase has been launched on an area of 165 hectares.
According to Nader Sanagou-Motlaq, managing director of the economic zone, this is its biggest development phase, as the three previous development phases covered a total area of 114 hectares, IRNA reported.
According to Financial Tribune, the new phase will see development of the zone's information and communication technologies sector.
