Referring to the inauguration of a large number of important and huge projects in the country in the past year in the form of Thursday inaugurations, the President said, "In the year 1400, huge projects such as the restoration of Lake Urmia and the Goreh-Jask pipeline will start operation".

Dr Rouhani said, "Those who are familiar with strategic issues know the importance of transferring part of the country's oil export capacity from the Persian Gulf to the Gulf of ​​Oman".

The President continued by stating that the government will seek to fulfil the important slogan of this year in supporting production and removing its obstacles until the last day of its term of office, adding, "We will not allow this year's naming to be limited to only naming".

Referring to the importance of free and special economic zones in the country's economy, the President said, "I hope that the bills that the government has submitted to the parliament to create free and trade zones, which have been delayed for several years, will be completed as soon as possible".

Dr Rouhani stated, "Free and special economic zones are mainly located in the border parts of the country and have significant benefits in the field of trade, investment and production".

The President also pointed out the importance of tourism, noting, "Tourism has been another goal of creating free and special economic zones, which has been pursued in this government, so that the number of tourists, especially foreign tourists during the last seven years has generally doubled".

Dr Rouhani said, "Unfortunately, after the outbreak of coronavirus, tourism in general has suffered a relative stagnation, which I hope we can provide safe conditions for the prosperity of tourism and travel by producing domestic vaccines, importing vaccines and conducting extensive vaccinations".
