EghtesadOnline: A total of 2,800 inactive industrial units have been revived since the beginning of the last Iranian year (March 2018) to date, according to Deputy Minister of Industries, Mining and Trade Mohsen Salehinia.
“Eight hundred of these units have been revived since the beginning of the current Iranian year [March 21, 2019],” he was quoted as saying by IRNA.
According to the official, Iran has 840 industrial parks in Iran, which accommodate more than 44,000 production and industrial units.
“Currently, 22-23% of these production units are not operating due to different reasons, including shortage of working capital and high taxes,” Financial Tribune quoted him as saying.
“There are 99 industrial clusters in Iran and the 100th one is about to be inaugurated in a month.”
Salehinia noted that the Ministry of Industries, Mining and Trade is pursuing plans to raise the number of industrial clusters in the country to 400.
