Supreme Leader sets Resistance Economy policies

Tehran, Feb 19, IRNA – Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Wednesday set general policies of the Resistance Economy.

The “Resistance Economy” is a concept declared originally by the Supreme Leader in his August 2012 speech to promote economic self-reliance, a strategy that would defeat the US-led efforts against Iran via economic and trade sanctions.

“The Resistance Economy is an inspiring pattern of the Islamic economic system and a good chance to make an economic epic,” said Ayatollah Khamenei.

According to the Center for Preserving and Publishing the Works of the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei stressed, ”Following an indigenous scientific pattern, rooted in the revolutionary and Islamic culture, will lead to defeat of enemies and their withdrawal from an imposed economic war against the Iranian nation.

“The Resistance Economy will also present an inspiring pattern of the Islamic economic system for the growing international crises and can prepare the ground for creating an economic epic.”

The 24-point general policies of Iran’s Resistance Economy were set based on the Article 110 of the Constitution and after consulting with the Expediency Council.

The ideology of the Resistance Economy, with its core concepts of self-sufficiency, proclaims that the Islamic Republic can survive — and indeed flourish — despite the US-led sanctions.
