Speaking during the visit, Ayatollah Dr Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi said, "Production centres of this kind are given priority in receiving loans and financial resources, not people who spend these resources elsewhere".
The President stressed, "While the country needs imports to supply paper, it is not acceptable at all that a paper factory, a significant part of which has been built to remain idle".
Mr Raisi continued, "The governor-general should seriously pursue the completion of this production unit so that, as the owner of the factory has promised, 600 people will be employed as soon as possible and with the surge in production, a step will be taken to supply consumable paper in the country".
Zagros Fars Paper Factory, with its modern machines and equipment, has an annual production capacity of 125,000 tonnes from recycled paper.
