Rouhani hails cabinet economic board for role in easing sanctions impact

Tehran, IRNA – President Hassan Rouhani hailed the Economic Coordination Board of his administration for its effective role during ‘hard conditions of sanctions and economic terrorism’.

Speaking in the last meeting of the Economic Coordination Board in the current administration, Rouhani underlined that the board played the role of a war headquarters during ‘economic war’, referring to the three years of crippling sanctions imposed by the US against the Iranian nation.

He said that people’s livelihood has been at the center of the board’s focus, as food security and economic stability play an important role in social and mental security.

Although economic and political war factors were in the foreign relations arena, the President noted, Economic Coordination Board manages to alleviate the economic impacts of this political aggression by timely proper decisions.

He went on to say that the board has used the opinions of economists and experts in its decision-making process.

The President wrapped up his speech by thanking the board and First Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri for his pivotal role in the board.
