Foreign Investors Will Bring More Competition to Economy

TEHRAN – Deputy Majlis speaker noted that presence of foreign investors in the country will intensify competition in all economic fields.

The MP stated that ratifications of the Expediency Council cannot be changed easily and opined that problems currently facing foreign investment in Iran will be solved in the near future.

Bahonar also stated that young population, huge natural resources and the Islamic system’s determination to attract foreign investment are good motives for foreign investors to invest in various sectors of the Iranian economy including oil, gas, petrochemicals and mines.

Deputy Majlis speaker also noted that general policies related to Article 44 of the Constitution have been notified by the Supreme Leader and the notification has paved the way for the private sector’s involvement in major economic sectors such as downstream oil and gas industry, telecommunications, airlines, and marine transportation.
