Tuesday, 23 April 2013

The view was expressed at a meeting between Rafsanjani and members of Tehran Chamber of Commerce and its related committees on April 22. Rafsanjani stressed the importance of the private sector in the  economy and expressed regret that despite efforts in the years following the Iran-Iraq War to increase the capabilities of the private sector, the government’s dependency on oil and its control over the financial sector have increased in recent years. He added that that the outcome of all this has been severe weakening of the private sector resulting in the government and all its subsections becoming the sole contender in the economic, cultural and social arenas.”
