He asserted the resistance economy is a way to deminish the effects of sanctions imposed on the country as well as hardship caused by low oil prices.
Referring to the sanctions that are imposed on Iran by the West and the falling oil prices in recent months, Mohsen Rezayee said that in order to minimize the effects of the current situations, there is no other way than acting upon the guidelines set by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei regarding resistance economy.
He described resistance economy to be a plan for turning threats into opportunities as well as paving the way for the country’s economy to make a giant forward leap.
In February 2014, the Supreme Leader in a speech outlined a series of general policies to boost the country’s economy and diminish its vulnerabilities.
The statement, laying out a major plan for resistance economy in the country, was issued after consultations with the country’s State Expediency Discernment Council and based upon the 1st clause of article 110 of the Constitution of Iran.
