Dr.Rouhani made the remarks while addressing participants in the inauguration ceremony of the 21st ministerial meeting of the ECO in Tehran on Tuesday.
President expressed optimism about the future of the Economic Cooperation Organization, and said ECO should undergo some reforms to provide the needs of the regional and member states.
He said that the main goal of such reforms is improving ECO to such a level that it turns into an organization which can provide the needs of the member and regional states.
“I hope to witness extensive regional cooperation and increased welfare and happiness for the member states in light of reforms in ECO in the near future and by taking a look at future horizons,” Dr.Rouhani said.
President said that the ECO has provided a new pattern for regional cooperation.
“Over two decades of cooperation among ten ECO countries from South Asia, Middle East and Central Asia and Caucasia, has provided a new model for regional cooperation,” President Rouhani said.
He added that the ECO members have made major achievements, during the period, in the fields of energy, industry, agriculture, mining, environment, banking, technology and science, education and transportation.
However, noted the President, further progresses should be made in the field of regional cooperation with ECO members having brighter prospects in their minds.
