Qom, April 7, IRNA – Majlis (parliament) Speaker Ali Larijani called for inspiring hope in investors as one the main tools for materialization of resistance economy.
“Creating an atmosphere full of hope and free from tensions are among the most prerequisites of materialization of resistance economy,” Larijani said in a meeting with senior Iranian cleric Ayatollah Nouri Hamedani in the holy city of Qom on Thursday evening.
He underlined that the issue of resistance economy after the nuclear issue should be regarded an important national issue, and said, “Resistance economy plays an important role in flourishing of resistance economy.”
On March 29, First Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri said President Hassan Rouhani has begun putting into practice the government’s policy of resistance economy.
“Promotion of non-oil exports tops the government’s agenda for this year,” Jahangiri said on Monday.
He noted that the economy ministry is responsible for implementing the objectives of the new policy.
The announcement came after Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei on March 20 called on people and officials to double efforts to improve economy and turn the threats into opportunities.
‘The main issue is that the Iranian nation should be able to do something to bring its vulnerabilities to zero point, and we should have the art of using opportunities and turning threats into opportunities,’ Ayatollah Khamenei said in his message on Sunday after the start of the Iranian New Year.
He underlined that improvement of economy is the country’s main priority, and said increasing national production, creating jobs and fighting recession are among the issues which should receive attention in the New Year.
Ayatollah Khamenei described the resistance economy as the remedy to all economic problems and the way to stand against enemies’ threats and create opportunities, and said, ‘Therefore, what I choose as the slogan of this year is ‘the resistance economy; action and implementation’.
