Rouhani: Gov’t going ahead vigorously in Economy of Resistance year

IRNA – President Hassan Rouhani says that his government has been using all within its capacity fulfilling its duties in the year of Economy of Resistance.

The current Iranian year beginning on March 20, 2016 was named as the Year of Economy of Resistance by the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.

President Rouhani made the remark after inaugurating the Zar Grain Refinery which is the biggest in the country.

Zar Grain Refinery was inaugurated by the President in Savojbolagh in this northern Iranian province on Tuesday.

Expressing congratulations on the occasion of the Ten-Day Fajr (Dawn) that starts in the country on the day the late Imam Khomeini returned home from exile to the victory of the 1979 Islamic Revolution on February 11, Rouhani said hundreds of projects will be inaugurated in the country during the coming ten days.

The opening of the Zar Grain Refinery has created 6,500 job opportunities, the President noted.

He further stressed that giving opportunities to the private sector will help well implement the Economy of Resistance policies.
