Abbas Gholami, the manager overseeing lower industries'
development at the National Petrochemical Company, disclosed that the credit
sales of petrochemical products surpassed 7.2 trillion tomans during the month
of Mehr in the Iranian calendar year 1402.
In an exclusive conversation with NIPNA, Gholami highlighted
that credit sales of petrochemical products accounted for 29% of the total
sales in the commodities exchange during Mehr this year.
He emphasized that the cumulative value of the petrochemical
products supplied on credit during this period reached the impressive figure of
7.2 trillion tomans.
Underlining the company's commitment to revitalize
production units, Gholami stressed the National Petrochemical Company's
encouragement of petrochemical companies to focus on credit sales as a pivotal
avenue for such transactions.
He explicitly stated that many petrochemical companies and
holdings actively engage in this national strategy, aiming to complete the
value chain and remain actively involved.
Gholami recalled the credit sales performance, indicating a
rise from 3.2 in Farvardin, 5.5 in Ordibehesht, 5.8 in Khordad, 6 in Tir, 7 in
Mordad, and approximately 6.2 trillion tomans in Shahrivar.
Addressing the challenges faced by supplementary industries
in acquiring raw materials, highlighted by the National Petrochemical Company,
Gholami mentioned liquidity and capital circulation as significant hurdles.
Presently, around 15,000 to 16,000 industrial units procure
their necessary feed from petrochemical complexes, emphasizing that increased
credit sales in the commodities and energy exchange market utilize all
available capacities of petrochemical companies to facilitate the supply chain
for supplementary industries.
Consequently, this strategic approach has resulted in
approximately 34 trillion tomans of credit sales to downstream petrochemical
industries in the first half of the Iranian calendar year 1402. These credit
sales, apart from reviving industrial units, have accelerated the development
of final products, generated maximum value-added, and bolstered employment
opportunities in the country.
