The Deputy for Rural Development and Deprived Areas of the country,
and the representative of the First Vice President in the launch and operationalization
of the economic revitalization movement, highlighted the challenges of securing
raw materials in the country's production units.
He mentioned that due to the shortage of capital in the lower-tier
production units, the National Petrochemical Industries Company, by using the
credit supply strategy for its products, has initiated a revolution in the path
of business prosperity in both active and semi-idle production units.
Referring to the effective support and role of the NPC with a focus on
managing the development of downstream industries in reviving production units
and semi-idle units, the representative stated, "In the thirteenth
government, the National Petrochemical Company, for the first time, pursued two
important approaches in the field of developing downstream and complementary
industries. The first step was identifying the biggest problem in complementary
industries, and the second step was presenting credit sales solutions to boost
He added, "Credit supply for petrochemical products was
implemented for the first time in the thirteenth government, leading to an
increase in market supply from 100 billion to 7 trillion Tomans."
He continued, "Social responsibility is not only limited to
constructing residential homes and schools in deprived areas and environments
around petrochemical industries. The revitalization of production units and
semi-idle units, creating jobs for thousands of people, is a mission in the
direction of significant social responsibility."
The credit supply strategy for petrochemical products began in the
last Persian month (February-March) under the management and follow-up of
Engineer Shahmirzai, the Deputy Minister of Petroleum and CEO of the National
Petrochemical Company, in the commodity exchange market. Currently, 64
petrochemical companies offer their products on credit in the stock market.
