The southeastern province of Sistan and Baluchestan has great economic potential and even small investments in the region’s agriculture, industry, mines, and trade can help stimulate economic growth and prosperity, said the province’s governor, Ali-Osat Hashemi.
The official also added that Sistan and Baluchestan, as the only province neighboring Pakistan, can play a key role in production and export of red meat to the neighboring country. “Accordingly, the region can be converted into a hub for livestock breeding with sufficient investments,” he added.
He further mentioned that different capital projects such as Chabahr and Iranshahr petrochemical projects, a 10 million metric ton alumina project and an automotive project are currently being executed in the province.
The vice president for executive affairs, Mohammad Shariatmadari said despite facing water scarcity, Sistan and Baluchestan province is trying to lure the investors to its agro sector and mining industries.
