This indicates a 4.4% growth in the number of applications and a 13.5% rise in investment compared with the similar period of a year before, according to the Ministry of Industries, Mining and Trade.
During the period, the government issued 4,564 operation permits for industrial projects worth an aggregate of 2.3 quadrillion rials ($60 billion), which indicate a 10% rise in the number of permits and a 50% hike in investment compared with last year’s corresponding period, Mehr News Agency reported.
