“Despite all the pressures of sanctions and global recess caused by coronavirus disease, the government has done its best to help the manufacturing sector and businesses keep growing and also help the people provide their needed goods,” he said.
“The government has tried to implement detailed plans in the areas of macroeconomics and household economy,” Rouhani added.
He said that the government granted loans to the jobs affected by the coronavirus restrictions in March to compensate the damages inflicted to the livelihood of the vulnerable people.
In relevant remarks last week, President Rouhani underlined that the main focus of his government is on the economic boom in spite of the US sanctions and the spread of the coronavirus.
"Spurring economy and economic activities is the main priority of the government in the current Iranian year (started March 20, 2020)," President Rouhani said addressing the 161st session of Government’s Economic Coordinating Council.
He reiterated the government wants to pave suitable ways for inauguration of important projects of the country coupled with economic boom and stability, he emphasized.
Referring to the recent economic instructions of Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei during the government week in Iran, as well as the compilation of 'Economic Roadmap', he said, “In addition to compensating the damages incurred to the economic sector of the country as a result of sanctions and spread of COVID-19, the government has taken effective steps in line with booming economy of the country."
The government managed to overcome sanctions and plots orchestrated by US against the country especially over the past two and a half years, Rouhani said, adding, “In addition to making efforts to alleviate economic shocks inflicted on people’s livelihood, the government is seeking to continue implementation of development policies of the country.”
