Dr. Rabiei: Inclusive-Employment and Poverty-Oriented Resistance Economy

Iranian socio-economic system is now experiencing one of its most critical period ever. A period characterized by complexity, velocity and ambiguity in development of the outward/inward environment that is hardly predictable on the one hand, and is aiming at transition to a new era towards a bright and lofty horizon on the other.
Such a great and historic transition is based on unprecedented opportunities and grounds including settlement of international tensions and reestablishment of diplomatic transactions with the world, creation of a conducive environment for taking advantage of foreign resources such as finance, technology, know-how, stability and political security at national level comparing to other regional States. Also the Government’s success to hold back negative economic growth and beginning of growth period and reducing inflation to a single digit, facilitating decision making and policy making…
Besides, promotion of country level in business environment (34 ranks promotion) and inauguration of the new Parliament in an atmosphere of collaboration with the Legislative branch towards realization of economic objectives; relative exchange market stability and proper management of public financial liabilities are among actions seriously pursued by the Government within the past three years. Sound management of public development budget through execution of priority civil plans supported by oil and gas reserves are golden chances for Iranian economy to encourage local and foreign economic stakeholders to activate country’s economic engine and provide suitable grounds for sustainable and inclusive growth in the years ahead.

The reliable world research papers predicted Iran to experience 3-6 percent economic growth and adding up to one trillion dollars to its GDP and generating 8 million job opportunities.
