After the ceremony that was held to celebrate the mass production of Dena+ and Peugeot 2008, Dr Rouhani said: "Our country's progress will be based on production and even employment is dependent on the development of production".

"Our country's economic independence, self-reliance, and self-sufficiency is dependent on national production," the President said.

Referring to the beginning of mass production of Dena+ and Peugeot 2008, he said: "Dena+ is 100% Iranian and Peugeot 2008 is co-produced by Iran and France and it is being produced by equal investment shares".

"This is the first time that we have entered global competition in auto industry and 30 per cent of the cars produced here will be exported to other countries across the world. The car, which is now being available for Iranians, has entered the French market 1.5 months ago," he added.

The President continued: "Today is a very blessed day for our auto industry, engineers and workers, as well as the whole country".
