According to the report, the budgets of some centres and institutions under Table 17 have increased significantly from the sources of the increase in the exchange rate of basic goods.

After the report, the President said, "With the aim of calming the country's market and economy, the government has done planning to pave the way for stability for the country's development and people's livelihood this year, in an attempt to minimise the consequences of the economic war and the effects of sanctions".

Dr Hassan Rouhani stated, "The government has considered special measures in the year 1400 budget bill so that the money of the poor is not spent for the benefit of special institutions".

The President added, "According to the promising horizon ahead, laying the rails in the micro and macro sectors of the country's economy with the aim of having a positive impact on people's livelihoods, the government prepared and presented next year's budget to the parliament".

Dr Rouhani pointed out, "Undoubtedly, the government is opposed to any change that causes the price of people's essentials, causes concerns in the public opinion, has inflationary consequences on the lives and livelihoods of the people, and reduces the value of the national currency".

The president stressed, "Words that signal a rise in prices to the market next year will immediately and directly increase the pressure on the low-income classes, and in a situation where all the factors show a declining trend in inflation, nothing must be allowed to cause inflation". 

Dr Rouhani stated, "Announcing its readiness to interact and cooperate with the parliament, the government considers it its duty not to accept any change the structure of the budget based on operational and objective knowledge of the needs and requirements of the society's economy, as well as the living and development requirements of the country".
