Jahangiri: Gov’t prioritizing resistance economy, non-oil exports



First Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri underlined that President Hassan Rouhani’s government will seriously pursue putting into practice the government’s resistance economy policies.

‘The promotion of non-oil exports as one of the government’s serious priorities for the new year tops government’s agenda,’ Jahangiri said.

He reiterated that the Economy Ministry is responsible for implementing the resistance economy objectives.

In a relevant development earlier this month, Economy Minister Ali Tayyebnia in a message to Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei assured him that his ministry will spare no efforts to materialize the resistance economy goals.

‘Naming the year 1395 (the Iranian new year which started on March 20) as the year of Resistance Economy; Action and Implementation was a wise measure and action which can be a great backup for the government as a whole on the path of materialization of the specified goals in the framework of the general resistance economy policies,’ Tayyebnia said in his message on March 21.

He underlined that the economy ministry will not spare any efforts to materialize the resistance economy which includes strengthening the internal production, settling the recession problem, decreasing the inflammation rate and creating more jobs.

In relevant remarks on March 20, Jahangiri underlined the importance of Ayatollah Khamenei’s Nowruz message, and said the government has compiled 12 national plans to materialize resistance economy goals.

The government has taken executive measures to achieve the goals in line with the guidelines of the Supreme Leader, Jahangiri said after the start of the Iranian New Year.

He said that the Expediency Council has outlined the plan to apply Resistance Economy to put an end to the vulnerability of the national economy when adversaries are willing to damage Iranian economy, adding that the Supreme Leader has entrusted the government with implementing the plan.

Jahangiri pointed out that 12 national plans adopted by the government for implementation envisage tens of executive projects to develop the national or resistance economy.

In his message on Sunday, Ayatollah Khamenei felicitated the Iranian nation on the advent of Nowruz, and 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 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’.’

Praying God Almighty for a life full of blessing for all Iranians, the Supreme Leader wished that the New Year will be a year that the Iranian nation deserves.
