Addressing at the 8th Festival of Iran's National Day of Engineering held here in Tehran on Thursday, Ahmadinejad expressed his deep gratitude to Iranian experts and engineers for their efforts.

Ahmadinejad said that Iran has made a huge stride in development and construction, adding that the achievements have been noticeable on multiple fronts ranging from aerospace, biotechnology and nanotechnology to major improvement in housing development in rural areas as well as other parts of the country.

He also expounded on government efforts to allocate more funds for the next fiscal year of 1390 (2011) in promoting scientific and technological researches, namely in agriculture and research sectors with nearly $10 billion and $3.5 billion budgets respectively.

During the ceremony, which was coincided with the commemoration of the birth of one of Iranian's great philosophers and scientists, Khaje Nasir Tusi (born on 18 February 1201), Ahmadinejad noted that the Iranian nation have had a long and rich history of scientific advances.

Iran on Wednesday unveiled two supercomputers in a special ceremony attended by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

President Ahmadinejad inaugurated the projects simultaneously in Amir Kabir University of Technology and Isfahan University of Technology through video-conferencing.

The supercomputer devised in Amir Kabir University has the capability of processing 32,000 billion data per second at the speed of 40 Giga bytes.

20 researchers and experts have worked on the project in 2009.

The supercomputer made by Isfahan University scientists is among the 500 best ones in the world.

Iran designed and built its first supercomputer in 2001.
