Referring to the government's determination and commitment to complete projects that are planned to be completed and operational by the end of the Twelfth Government, the President said, "One of the most important decisions in the Eleventh and Twelfth Governments is the completion of projects on time. Government departments have always tried to complete the country's projects according to schedules and plans”.

Referring to the negative effect and the history of prolonging the construction of unfinished projects in the development process of the country, Dr Rouhani said, “The government tries to finalise the unfinished projects, so that the future government does not face problems”.

The President said that the slogan of "Surge in Production" was fulfilled last year with the effort to complete the projects on time and in accordance with the plans, adding, “Within the framework of the Supreme Leader’s advice, the government will have this as its top priority until the last day of its term, and no department should procrastinate or neglect the completion of projects”.

After a report on the capital market, the President said that the government's continuous policy has been to support the capital market, adding, "This year, which has been named the year of ‘Supporting and Removing Barriers to Production’, the government is trying to remove obstacles to capital market growth, and it will try to encourage people to enter the capital market with the necessary training and arrangements”.

He continued, "Supporting the capital market does not mean managing with orders and the government is doing its job of structuring and supervising".
