The board of trustees of the National Development Fund of Iran (NDFI), headed by President Hassan Rouhani, met on Saturday to decide for important plans and priorities of the upcoming year, starting March 21.
According to the public affairs department of the presidential office, the board agreed that the fund’s resources should be distributed within the sectors which support and promote domestic manufacturing, news website BINA reported.
Also, the members were of the opinion that the high interest rates on loans provided to industrial and agricultural sectors as well as knowledge-based companies need to be corrected.
