In the signing ceremony of the Memorandum of Understanding, Dr. Mohammad Mokhber Head of Execution of Imam Khomeini’s Order (EIKO) pointed to the high capabilities and potentials of Fars Province and said, “today, enemies have targeted the country’s economy and livelihood of people, so that they [enemies] have initiated and waged a psychological warfare against the country.”

He drew a comparison between Iran’s economy before and after the Islamic Revolution and reiterated, “today, the country enjoys unique capabilities and potentials in terms of resources, facilities and talents.”

As the country delegated and vested economic activities to the people during the eight years of Sacred Defense (Iraqi imposed war against Iran in 1980-1988), and attained victory, today, it is logical to delegate the administration of economic activities to the people in the current situation, he said, adding, “monopolization should be set aside in the country and effective steps should be taken in the field of adopting logical policies in administering economic activities of the country.”

He said that the country should practice de-monopolization and all economic activities should be delegated to the people.

‘Deprivation’ and ‘economic empowerment’ through the creation of employment within the framework of the implementation of objectives of resistance economy is the main task of the Execution of Imam Khomeini’s Order (EIKO), Dr. Mokhber emphasized.

Given the above issue, ‘resistance economy’ means delegation of the economy and economic activities to the people, he reiterated.

Elsewhere in his remarks, head of EIKO pointed out that development of Small- and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) as well as expansion of knowledge-based companies are of the main components of the development and said, “the country should move towards implementation of economic projects which can create high employment opportunities in the shortest time possible.”

He revealed the considerable increase in credit of the said Memorandum of Understanding from 3,500 billion Rials to 6,500 billion Rials and said, “if this credit is operational within the next three years, 20 percent will be added to the said rate.”

He pointed to the selection of one of the deprived and disadvantaged cities of Fars Province as ‘pilot city for the implementation of ‘resistance economy and all-out development and progress’ and said, “EIKO is ready to support objectives of this plan wholeheartedly.”

Governor General of Fars Province Eng. EsmaeilTabadar was the next speaker in the signing ceremony who said, “participating and empowering people in country’s economic projects is one of the main and salient specifications of the Execution of Imam Khomeini’s Order (EIKO).”

As a representative of the government, he said, “the provincial governor-generalship will welcome all activities in the field of business and employment eagerly.”

Despite the bottlenecks and financial problems, unemployment in Fars Province has declined considerably in a way that unemployment rate has hit from 16.5 percent in the past year (ended March 20, 2018) to 9.9 percent in the current year (started March 21, 2018), the governor general maintained.

Fars Province has many capabilities and potentials in agricultural and tourism fields, he said, adding, “we hope that unemployment rate will reduce in this province with the implementation of the job-creation plan of the Execution of Imam Khomeini’s Order (EIKO).”

Under the MoU, EIKO will participate and invest in economic and infrastructural projects of this province up to 6,500 billion rials, he said, adding, “this move includes implementing ‘economic empowerment’ plans with the approach of production and employment, implementing and completing development, infrastructural, social, cultural and supportive projects in various sectors of Fars Province as well as implementing and completing development, infrastructural, social, cultural and supportive projects in Kazeroun city, Fars Province.”
