Iran's economic horizon bright, says Nahavandian
The government is pursuing its economic policies and it is trying to reach single-digit inflation rate by the end of President Hassan Rouhani's current administration, says Iran's Presidential Chief of staff.
'The administration has done its best to ease market agitation and especially to control fluctuations in the currency market,' said Mohammad Nahavandian on Monday.
'We have tried to reduce the inflation rate and to create a secure environment for the economic entrepreneurs to do their job safely and make plans for the future,' he said.
'The Government managed to harness severe Western sanctions, Nahavandian said, adding that during the nuclear negotiations and in the process of drawing up the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, we have made good economic achievements.
'The implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action will bring the lifting of all sanctions against the Islamic Republic,' he said.
The Presidential Head of Staff also said that the nuclear deal with the major world powers, away from economic achievements, has produced cultural and political outcomes, too.
'Today, on the international scene, Iran is not a pariah state and now all countries admit that our nuclear activities are peaceful and reliable.'
'What the current administration has done is a preamble for the country's economic flourishment and everybody should do its best alongside the people to start a new chapter of economic boom,' Nahavandian said.
'Yet, we have big challenges ahead and we should learn a lesson from the past.'
