Addressing a congregation of student organizations on Sunday, the
President revealed the exponential increase in the Ministry of Petroleum's
cooperation with knowledge-based companies - a five-fold jump from a mere 100
contracts at the start of his office.
It was no secret that increasing collaboration with knowledge-based
firms was a priority for the Supreme Leader, but the President acknowledged
that not all institutions had fulfilled those expectations.
He stated that the 13th administration had succeeded in meeting the
Leader's goals in some areas, such as Agriculture and Petroleum Ministries,
where the number of deals had escalated from a hundred to an impressive five
The President proudly listed some of his administration's
accomplishments, which included putting the brakes on the breakneck growth of
liquidity and even decreasing it, attaining 4% economic growth after a decade
of near-zero progress, fulfilling the promise of creating one million jobs last
year, and witnessing significant advancements in the number and volume of
activities of knowledge-based production companies.
He also announced that his administration had allocated tens of
billions of Tomans for the implementation of essential projects such as rating
teachers, equalizing pensioners' salaries, and tariffing nursing services.
Despite the daunting and unprecedented pressures of the enemy, the
President deemed these achievements as an integral part of the popular
administration's triumphant success.
