TEHRAN (FNA)- Vice-Speaker of the Iranian Parliament Seyed Mohammad Hassan Aboutorabi Fard said the best way to put an end to the country’s economic dependence on oil revenues is realization of Resistance Economy objectives.
Aboutorabi Fard said that now in the fourth decade after the victory of Islamic revolution, the country needs to have a dynamic economy which could be developed only through adhering to the Resistance Economy.
He went on to say that Iran has massive infrastructures, and it could speedily turn into an economic power.
In early March, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei in a meeting with economic activists, elites and state officials in Tehran explained the root cause of Iran’s turn to the Resistance Economy as well as the specifications, features and components of such an economic model.
Ayatollah Khamenei elaborated on the reasons and incentives for the adoption of the economy of resistance, and said, “Abundant material and non-material capacities of the country, treatment of chronic and lasting economic problems, confrontation against sanctions and immunizing the country’s economy against global economic crises” are the reasons why such a model should be practiced in Iran.
He further noted that the components of the resistance economy are “creating movement and dynamicity in the country’s economy and improving macroeconomic indicators”, “ability to resist against threatening factors”, “reliance on internal capacities”, adoption of a “Jihadi approach”, “people-centeredness”, “reforming consumption patterns”, “campaign against corruption” and adoption of “knowledge-based approach”.
Ayatollah Khamenei referred to the sanctions imposed by the western powers against Iran due to its peaceful nuclear program, and said the country should strengthen its economy in a way that no boycott and embargo could ever leave a negative impact on it so easily.
