It is registering over eight percent growth in one year standing on top of the list of world economic powers in terms of annual economic growth.

Speaking to IRNA, he described the performance of the economic team of the 11th government as positive and ruled out negative points targetting the government.

Propaganda campaign is not something new and after taking the office of the 11th government, the right wing (moderate) focused on it and that is only because of good performance of President Rouhani’s government, he said.

President Rouhani said that the most significant aspect of President Rouhani’s government is revival of Iran’s economic growth which started from minus seven and exceeded eight percent in last Iranian year.

Referring to the development in the oil field in the 11th government, he said these developments were beyond expectations of domestic and foreign experts in a way that in less than six months, production of the crude oil revitalized.
