The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei, who was speaking at a pharmaceutical factory near Tehran on the occasion of Worker’s Week in Iran on Sunday, said the same strong will that has helped the Iranian nation overcome other enemy plots over the years will also see them through the economic conspiracies.
“The true realization of the country’s various objectives such as political independence requires self-sufficiency and economic independence; economic independence is [in turn] contingent upon the formation of national production; and national production will be generated through ‘true, collective and practical’ respect for Iranian labor and Iranian investment,” the Supreme Leader added.
Elsewhere, The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei said fighting economic corruption is necessary for boosting domestic production.
“Smuggling and abusing the nation’s financial assets and resources in banks are instances of the economic disruptions,” the Supreme Leader said.
The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei has designated the new Iranian calendar year (started March 20) as that of National Production and Supporting Iranian Investment and Labor.
