Iran Doubles Petchem Output under Rouhani

TEHRAN (Shana) – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said the country’s petrochemical production capacity had doubled in the 7 years that he had been in office.

According to president.ir, Dr. Rouhani told the government cabinet on Wednesday that Iran’s petrochemical output stood at 56 million tons per year back in 2013, the year he took office as Iranian president, which is in contrast with today's output of the country: 100 mt/y.

"We have gone through difficult days in these two years and several months and it was not easy for the people, but Thanks to God, the basis of the country and the establishment and the framework of the country's economy and people's lives are well managed and the minimum needs of the people and the necessity of the people have been managed. Today, staple commodities are immediately available to the people. In the production sector, our producers did a great job. That is, producers who have done great work in our important industries, to which a large part of non-oil exports depend today,” he said.

"Our factories have produced even more than last year," he said. "Non-oil exports may have decreased slightly in terms of revenue, but they have increased in weight. We produce more steel, copper, aluminum and petrochemicals. Production is in place. When there is production and employment and production is increasing, exports will also be increasing.”

"In the last 10 days, exporters and companies, mainly steel and petrochemicals, have returned $2.5 billion in foreign exchange, and many of them return the currency correctly to the Nima system. Of course, there are minorities who evade the system and must be dealt with according to the law,” he said.
