TEHRAN (Shana) -- The director of production control at the National Petrochemical Company said production of various petrochemical products is expected to reach 61 million tons by the end of the current calendar year, which began on March 21, to grow roughly 9% year-on-year.

According to the National Petrochemical Company, Seyed Jalal Mirhashemi stated: "From the beginning of this [calendar] year to mid-February, production of petrochemicals has reached about 56 million tons and is expected to reach about 61 million tons by the end of the calendar year of 1399.”

Last year, Iran’s petrochemical output stood at over 55 million tons.

Mirhashemi further emphasized that Iran's petrochemical industry, as one of the parent industries, is one of the most important pillars of development and the driving force of various sectors of the country's economy.
