First Vice President Es’haq Jahangiri has called for the budget and planning committee of the parliament to help the administration out of economic problems.

In a meeting with the committee members, the official underscored the key role of the panel in improving relationship between the government and the parliament, IRNA reported.

Iran for the first time in two years reported growth in gross domestic product (GDP) in spring. Central bank officials hope the economy will grow by at least two percent by the end of the year (March 20, 2015) if all branches stick to a temporary recovery plan proposed by the Rouhani administration.

“The administration is not able to tackle the economic problems, curb inflation, and step out recession by itself. It requires the committee’s support,” Jahangiri asserted.

The committee members accorded with the vice president underlining the necessity of cordial and harmonious relationship between the two bodies.
