After opening a specialized pharmaceutical plant in Tehran, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani assured the private sector of his administration’s support for knowledge-based projects and research activities contributing to national production.
“The administration will seriously support the whole private sectors in the field of production, particularly those doing knowledge-based activities and the activities on the basis of knowledge and research,” President Rouhani said after opening a pharmaceutical complex on Wednesday, the first day of the new Iranian year.
Hailing the specialized center for meeting the international standards, the president said the fact that Iranian pharmaceuticals are being exported to the other countries indicates that such industry is in the correct competitive path.
It is a source of pride to Iran to possess a specialized center that is among the world’s top producers of medicine, he added, asking all Iranian investors and entrepreneurs, inside and outside the country, to contribute to national production and progress in the new Iranian year with their capital, knowledge and expertise.
In his Nowruz speech on Tuesday night, President Rouhani pledged that his administration will keep pursuing the policies to create jobs, support domestic products, combat poverty, stimulate investment, and support entrepreneurs in the new Iranian year.
In a Nowruz message, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei has named 1397 “The Year of Support for Iranian Products”.
