Iran has set its sights on achieving 8% economic growth in the sixth five-year economic plan (2016-21), said First Vice President Es’haq Jahangiri on Saturday. The Vision Plan (2005-25) has set the target of winning the first rank among regional economies in order to generate permanent jobs and improve their welfare, he added. “Iran enjoys high investment potential in the region and the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development has managed to set the stage for attraction of local and foreign investment by proposing investment packages  in the fields of transport, housing and urban development in the past two years,” IRNA quoted Jahangiri as saying.
