Speaking on Thursday at the inauguration ceremony of national plans of the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development, Dr Hassan Rouhani said that the Urban Renovation Scheme and the Settlement Building are policies of the government in the field of housing and urban development.

He added, "Reconstruction and renovation of old neighborhoods was widely pursued in this government, and this issue continues as one of the government's policies in the housing sector".

The President referred to the Mehr Housing Scheme and the closure of its case in this government and said, "Mehr Housing Scheme was a big project that started in the ninth and tenth governments with the aim of building 2.2 million housing units, out of which at the beginning of the eleventh government, approximately 690,000 units had been completed".

Dr Rouhani said, "Practically, the enormous burden of advancing this project and providing basic infrastructure facilities fell on the 11th and 12th governments and related departments, so that in the government of prudence and hope, one million and 355 thousand housing units were completed and delivered to applicants".

The President stated that more than 40,000 of these units were inaugurated today, adding, "This case is almost closed and there are another 50,000 units that we must complete and deliver by the end of the government".

Dr Rouhani added, "There are about 100,000 units that have problems, about 70,000 units do not have applicants, that is, a place has been built where no one is an applicant at all, and there are places where these housing units have legal problems and their status should be reviewed in courts".

Dr Rouhani further referred to the National Housing Action Plan and said, "Our plan is to increase the number of housing units built in the twelfth government in the framework of this scheme to the other schemes".

Expressing satisfaction with the progress of this scheme, the President said, "By the end of this government, all 400,000 units must have passed the hardening stage, and everything that the government must do will be done as a duty, and the banks and the Plan and Budget Organisation should help bring this great work to its destination".

Stating that the actions of the Government of Prudence and Hope in the field of housing are noteworthy and the Minister of Roads and Urban Development should provide the necessary statistics related to this field, Dr Rouhani added, "We hope that this process will continue until the end of the government".

Referring to the country's self-sufficiency in the production of construction materials as well as efficient engineers in the field of housing, the President said, "I hope that with each other's help, we can take a valuable step in this important matter, which is very important for our economy".

Dr Rouhani stated, "This year, which is the Year of Surge in Production, an important part of our production is definitely housing, and housing can create a great transformation in both production and employment".
