President Hassan Rouhani has said that the next Iranian calendar year (starting 21st March) would be a year of economic prosperity for the country.
Addressing a ceremony to inaugurate two new phases of the giant South Pars Gas Field in the southern Iranian city of Assaluyeh, he said sanctions would be lifted within days, resulting in positive economic growth:
“Despite all difficulties this year, economic growth of the country will be positive and I assure the people of Iran that next year (1395) will be the year of economic growth.
“The country will grow its wealth through technology, productivity, and its youths’ hard work”.
