MNA – People should be certain that production or provision of required goods for the society and solving any issue in production sectors are government’s priority, according to Iranian president.
At a meeting for managing recent foreign currencies market fluctuations that was held on Monday, the Iranian president Hassan Rouhani said “as the government provides the required services and foreign currency for basic needs, the consumer must not pay for the profit-seeking of some.”
The basis of increasing the price of goods and services must not go beyond inflation rate, Rouhani was quoted as saying by Iran’s Presidency’s official website, adding “it is not acceptable that some gain 42,000-rial dollars from the government and sell goods in the market at higher prices.”
“Controlling production, distribution and the price of people’s everyday needs are top priority for the government and its bodies,” he continued, adding, “supplying goods by producers and importers must happen at a faster pace and all factors contributing to the delay in the supply process must be eliminated.”
“Sustainable growth in the production sector depends on the sector’s normal profit in developing its market,” added the Iranian president.
He continued “people mustn’t be put under pressure under any circumstances, especially for providing their basic goods and the goods that are produced inside the country.”
Rouhani went on to say “the government will not let some abuse the market of people’s basic needs and if there are some who are thinking about effortless profit must prepare for decisive tax measures.”
He also emphasized that public supervision, guilds and economic sector-media coordination are essential for eliminating the fluctuations in the market.
