Irans GDP Showing Reasonable Growth in Past Iranian Year
TEHRAN April 2 (Mehr News Agency)
The head of Tehran Chamber of Commerce said here on Friday that Irans gross domestic product (GDP) in the past Iranian calendar year 1382 (March 20, 2003-March 20, 2004) shows worth-noting rise in comparison with Iranian year 1381 (March 20, 2002-March 20, 2003).
In an interview with the economic reporter of Fars News Agency, Mohammad Reza Behzadian said that some parts of the economic achievements in the past year are due to the sixth Majlis efforts to streamline economic activities by ratifying different bills including the bills on taxation and foreign investment
He added that such bills removed some ambiguities as to taxation and foreign investment rules and regulations.
He pointed to the considerable rise in some farming products such as wheat and said that beside the agricultural sector the mines and industries sector recorded high production in past Iranian year in particular in steel production.
He went on to say that that the textile industry also experienced an upward trend.
Non-oil exports edged up as well and the growth in stock exchange indexes, acceleration of the privatization plan and cession of the shares of some governmental companies were among the positive steps taken in the past Iranian year, he noted. http://www.mehrnews.com/wfNewsDetails_en.aspx?NewsID=67766&t=Economic
