President: More production, non-oil exports are keys to bolstering ties with world

Tehran, Aug 6, IRNA – President Hassan Rouhani said in Tehran on Thursday that all necessary conditions should be prepared for production and expansion of non-oil exports so as to upgrade ties with the world.
In an interview at the end of his visit to southwest Tehran, which marked his 21st provincial visit, President Rouhani said, ‘We should be engaged with the world so that the global and regional atmosphere is provided and the goals, intended by Iranian great nation in line with the declared economic resistant policies of the Supreme Leader, are met.’

Inviting people to contribute to production and investment, President Rouhani said, ‘All should come on the scene of production and government is not capable of shouldering production alone; even if undertaking the burden it will not be a good producer. Ongoing bureaucracy in the country and inactivity of banks are two main problems with production in the country.’
