Tehran, YJC. Addressing a conference on mining and industry, President Rouhani said that what afflicted the sections during the 9th and 10th administrations should be considered as a fact of the past.

In a meeting to celebrate the Mining and Industry Day on Tuesday, Hassan Rouhani asserted that his administration is working hard to remove the obstacles that used to cripple Iran’s industry.

Sanctions have already been eased and Tehran is committed to reach a conclusion out of its nuclear talks with the world powers, president added.

He promised to facilitate private sectors interactions with the world and support their investment.

Referring to the investors problems during the eight years of hardliner Mahmoud Ahmadinejads presidency, Rouhani noted that its administration is keen to open a new chapter in government’s collaboration with the private sectors.


President Rouhani pointed to the geopolitical situation of Iran as well as its rich natural resources, underlining that the government is determined to reduce inflation rate and make an economic boom.

Rouhani criticized the lack of competitive environment in countries industries, making the rhetorical question that why after so many years, say, 40-50 years, "our industries are too weak to compete with international industrial giants.”

He congratulated National Day for Industry and Mine and dubbed it day for producers, industrial actives, job innovators who make great efforts to help the country on more progress.

Rouhani said that supporting industrial units without competitive environment could be destructive and added that "we need social capital and should remain hopeful that security and stability would reign in the future.”

About the nuclear negotiations and sanctions imposed upon Iran by West, Rouhani said that negotiations would continue with Iranians’ national interests and dignity to be upheld. "Iranian negotiators have enough expertise to express Iran’s views in the talks between Iran and the six major powers of the world,” said he.
