Iran’s National Video Games Foundation, the Labor Ministry, and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), have signed an MoU on development of video games and animations in the country.

According to the Public Relations department of Iran’s National Video Games Foundation, the purpose behind the move is to boost job creation in the field of game development as well as improving the industry in Iran.

According to the agreement, the National Video Games Foundation is now tasked with devising strategies for creating jobs, supporting game development, collaborating with active institutions, and holding game development seminars and training courses.

UNIDO would also connect the Iran’s National Video Games Foundation to other international game development bodies and would facilitate interaction among them. It would also provide game developers with the required financial assistance and loans.

The agreement would be valid for a period of three years.
