Farhad Dejpsand in the open session of Majlis and responding lawmaker’s questions said: “Iran’s economy is facing a fundamental and structural challenge regarding the bulky structure of the government.”
According to him, the size of the government, as it prevents the proper and optimal allocation of resources, will have direct and rapid effects on the efficiency of the economy.
Dejpsand continued: “Since the 1980s, the late Imam Khomeini (RH) emphasized on handing over affairs to the people, and since 1984, with the announcement of the policies of Article 44 of the Constitution by the Supreme Leader of the Revolution, these emphases have increased day by day.”
He reminded: “The Leader of the Revolution, after five years of this communiqué, re-emphasized it because this is one of the basic priorities of the system.”
The Minister of Economic Affairs and Finance emphasized: “Privatization is a serious approach, privatization is not to finance the government but to improve the relationship between the government and the market in the economy and is an inevitable necessity.”
