- The Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says supporting national production is an urgent need because the enemies of Iran have focused on economic issues.
In a meeting with Iran's high-ranking officials on Tuesday, the Leader noted that the cooperation between Iranian Majlis and government is necessary for supporting national production and countering the efforts of the global arrogant front.
"Today, the country needs endeavor, dynamism and innovation in various fields; and collaboration, prudence, and cooperation among officials, especially between the government and the Majlis, are required to achieve this goal," Ayatollah Khamenei added.
The Leader noted that the global "arrogant front" has launched all-out efforts to increase economic pressures on Iran, but Iranian officials and youths, through their resolve and faith, will mobilize all their capacities and capabilities to bring another failure to the arrogant front.
"The most obvious reason for the futility of the efforts made by the arrogant front is the inefficiency of more than 30 years of sanctions and economic pressures on the Islamic establishment as well as the increasing progress and power of Iran," Ayatollah Khamenei said.
The Leader stated that unity and empathy in the country has been a major reason for the failure of the Islamic Republic's enemies.
"The Majlis and the government should take practical steps to support national production through sincere cooperation," the Leader added.
Pointing to the wrong culture for consuming foreign products in the society, Ayatollah Khamenei said the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) plays an important role in building a correct culture for consuming domestic products.
"Building culture for the consumption of domestic products requires thinking, studying, deep insight, planning and attention to the socio-psychological aspects of this issue," the Leader noted.
In his New Year message to the Iranian nation, Ayatollah Khamenei named the new Iranian year (started March 21) as the year of "National Production, Supporting Iranian Capital and Labor."
The Leader added that if domestic production prospers, most of the enemies' efforts will undoubtedly fail.
Ayatollah Khamenei said the prosperity of national production is the key to resolving the problems of inflation and unemployment and will strengthen domestic economy.
