IFIA President, Alireza Rastegar, was invited to have a video interview. In response to the question asked by the interviewer to express his impression on the BIXPO 2016, he remarked:
“Bitagram International Exposition of Electric Power Technology is one of most effective factors in the development of power industry around the world. The participation of Electric Power CTOs, experts from the Industrial and Academic Sector, international invention associations and the display of innovative ideas in the field of power technology helps to the improvement of this industry. IFIA considers BIXPO as one of its official events and the most important one. Although BIXPO is organized for only 2 years, it is comparable with the events in America and Germany which have a long history. The organization of conferences with the attendance of experts can offer this industry a new outlook. Also the participation of businessmen and investors in BIXPO can contribute to the commercialization of innovative ideas”
