TEHRAN (Dispatches) - Iranian Industry Minister Reza Rahmani said that the government is determined to pave the ground for increase in the volume of non-oil exports in the current local calendar year (March 21, 2019-March 20, 2020).
In a meeting in the western province of Kermanshah, Rahmani said: "One billion dollars of exports creates 50,000 jobs,” and urged the significance of facilitating exports.
"Production prosperity and preserving production units play a great role in job creation and uprooting unemployment,” he added, calling on all the state-run organizations to cooperate for reaching the set exports targets.
A month ago, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, in a video message broadcasted early on March 21, said that economic issues still remain atop the country’s concerns, and called on the government and the nation to boost production in the country.
Ayatollah Khamenei, in his televised message to the nation on the occasion of the New Persian Year, offered congratulations to the Iranians on the occasion of Nowruz, and named the New Year of 1398 as the year of "Pick-up in Production”.
