TEHRAN June 08(Shana)--Iran’s first vice-president has said that the country’s revenue from oil and gas selling has fallen below $50 billion.

“The country’s oil and gas revenue was $118 billion in the [calendar] year 1390 [which ended in March 2012]. It has now fallen to below $50 billion,” Es’haq Jahangiri said.

He said that Iran, with a population of around 80 million, should become an important industrial hub in the region.
