Sanctions to help improve quality of home-made appliances

Tehran, Nov 19, IRNA - Deputy Minister of Industry, Mine and Trade stated that the Iranian companies should seize the opportunity of sanctions to improve the quality of Iran-manufactured appliances and also work to take a real leap towards ultimate indigenization of spare parts and equipment.

Speaking to reporters in the opening ceremony of 19th International Home Appliances Expo on Tuesday, Hossein Modarres Khiabani said that home appliances produced in Iran were suffering from uncontrolled imports for many years, but today the country is witnessing good things as a result of opportunities created by re-imposition of sanctions.
