He added: “Employment is the base for life and unemployment is the source of all evil; we must put employment of the youth as a top priority in our plans and projects”.

“Based on official figures, the net employment rate in our country from year 1386 to 1390 has been 14000 persons per year; but today, our employment rate in the recent years has been over 700,000 persons,” Dr Rouhani continued.

He also said that currently Iran has 5 million students and added: “Despite government’s efforts in creating jobs, the unemployment rate is high because of the increased number of people looking for jobs”.

If we want to bring dignity for our country, we need to increase employment rate by preparing the infrastructures and attracting investment, said Rouhani, “This year, the Supreme Council of Employment will be formed in the beginning of the year and the first cabinet session after the holidays will be discussing employment”.

He also referred to the incident leading to firefighters’ death and Ayatollah Hashemi Rafsanjani’s demise and continued: “When we see that people are vigilant about losing a great asset, it is a great balm to the suffering”.

“We need to join hands and resolve the issues of the country, and God-willing, our employment rate will be more than the figures throughout the history of Iran,” the President said.

Dr Rouhani also mentioned efforts for developing and expanding the rail network and fleet of airlines and continued: “We need to improve people’s lives towards production and in doing so, banks must become involved and be a good mediator between people and production”.

In the eleventh government, 24000 production units have been activated, he continued, adding: “If we stand together, we can boost production, create jobs and increase exports”.

The President of the Islamic Republic of Iran went on to say: “We could restore our oil production and export in OPEC back to its previous conditions and this shows that we have the required power”.

“God-willing, year 1396 will be the year of production, employment, empathy, integrity, cooperation people’s massive presence in political fields to determine the future of their country,” Dr Rouhani added.

He said: “As the lines of prayer are respected and sacred, the lines of voting are a form of prayer and therefore, sacred”.

Dr Rouhani said: “We could eliminate the shadow of sanction on people’s lives with God’s help, the Supreme Leader’s guidance and people’s support”.
