Tehran, Aug 6, IRNA – President Hassan Rouhani said that Iran has inaugurated four projects so far and will continue to open 13 others till the end of the current Iranian year (March 20, 2021).

Expressing happiness that these projects have been implemented by the Iranian knowledge-based enterprises, he said, "We are witnessing a big development in petrochemical products, which have doubled."

He said that 23 years ago, the revenue of the country from petrochemical products was just one billion dollars; before his government, it was $11 billion; and until the end of the Iranian year (March 20, 2021), it will double.

He added that the phase is to make $37 billion a year in 2025.
