In this gathering which was held on Saturday, model labourers and the representatives of labour unions took part and president delivered a speech.

Dr Rouhani said: “The government attempted to turn Iranophobia into praising the country and show the true face of the Iranian people to the world in order to open the gate for Iranian goods to be exported”.

He added: “Government attempted to create an atmosphere for manufacturing cheaper and more competitive products in the global market in order to prepare the ground for the youth’s employment and ensure job security for labourers”.

 “We wanted for Iranian goods to be exported to global markets without issues posed by sanctions” he continued.

Dr Rouhani also said: “Erroneous walls of sanctions are removed now and labourers and entrepreneurs should make efforts for JCPOA 2 and boosting the economy”.

President also said that economic prosperity depends on labour, investment, and transfer of technology. “We should create opportunities for domestic and foreign capitals to be used in the country” continued Rouhani.

He added: “Today, the threats have been turned into opportunities and those who feared Iran’s name, now are competing to come to Iran and invest”.

On the issue of eliminating reliance on oil and rely on non-oil products instead, President said: “We provided people with healthcare services during the hard times and we put the people under health insurance coverage”.

“During the past three years, the government has been planning the budget bill to increase the annual salary of employees and labourers to exceed the annual inflation rate for the first time” said Dr Rouhani.

He also referred to women labourer’s rights and added: “Women labourers’ rights should not be violated when they are working under equal conditions with men”.

Talking about the upcoming elections, Dr Rouhani invited people to have a memorable presence at the polls and said: “We should choose those who are concerned about economic prosperity and job creation for the youths; those who are seeking to increase non-oil exports and, as the Supreme Leader said, are bound up with the people and the Revolution and are aware of the enemies’ conspiracies”.
