Businesses received entrepreneurship awards on Tuesday at the third Amin al-Zarb Awards ceremony organized by Tehran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture. 
The Amin al-Zarb Badge (named after a merchant and philanthropist who founded the TCCIMA 135 years ago) and statuette, which is given to successful entrepreneurs and leading thinkers in recognition of their contributions, is usually also attended by senior officials. 
Last year Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif received the top badge for his efforts to help improve the international climate for Iran's business community. 
First Vice President Es'haq Jahangiri was the special guest this time making his second appearance at the shindig. He choked back tears when talking about the scale and scope of uncertainty and unpredictability visiting the struggling private sector after the US abandoned the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and imposed new economic sanctions.  
"The main target of US pressure is on businesses, the innocent people and manufactures. We must, more than ever before, open new windows for the future of our young generation," Jahangiri told the obviously apprehensive business leaders.
