MSC should serve as model for other industries: MP

Top industrialists and economists were on hand for a 23rd edition of a ceremony in Isfahan to mark national industries and mines day. At the ceremony most speakers described reliance on the domestic potential and realization of the Resistance-based Economy as key to navigating the path that lies ahead of the nation.  
At the ceremony, Deputy Minister of Industries, Mines and Trade Sadegh Najafi said a special commission needs to be set up to review, pursue and settle the problems industrial units in Isfahan Province are faced with.
Najafi, who also serves as the managing director of the organization that oversees the workings of small industries and industrial parks, further said the commission should look into issues which have to do with forex needs of factories, supply of raw materials and their financial woes and work out special solutions at the shortest time possible.
He said the country is not in an ideal condition; it's just like wartime and all industrial managers and industrialists should now what is exactly happening.
Later, the president of Isfahan Province's Assembly of MPs said at this juncture industrialists are fighting on the frontlines with their bare hands and added although industrialists are under strain, they are expected to produce high-quality, competitive products.
Seyyed Nasser Mousavi Laregani further said the ban put on placement of orders with the dollar rate that buys 4,000 tomans has created a lot of problems when it comes to procurement of raw materials.
He said imports of products which are locally produced are religiously forbidden and added in the 12 months to late March 2018, imports of foreign goods registered a hike over the year before.
Recalling some of the measures of MSC to secure self-sufficiency and the steelmaker's decision to opt for reverse engineering to produce some parts at home, he said tapping into the scientific potential of the elite is a good mechanism to counter sanctions. Mobarakeh Steel Company should serve as an example for other industries.
Meanwhile, Abdolvahab Sahl-Abadi, who leads Iran Chamber of Industries, Mines and Trade, urged officials to make a final decision on value-added tax.
And Isfahan's governor general criticized banks and insurance companies, urging them to change their attitude toward industries and farmers. Time is not right for entities to take things hostage; rather, it's time to work hard, he said.  
At the event, the pioneers of the industry and mine sectors as well as managers of top industrial and mining units in Isfahan Province were praised and some industrialists were given time to air their grievances.
