Iran's economic growth is higher than other countries in the region
Iran has experienced positive economic growth despite enduring the toughest sanctions alongside the Corona pandemic.
According to the Islamic Republic News Agency, despite the prevalence of the corona and its significant effects on economic growth, in 1399, the growth of Iran's GDP began a positive trend that has continued until now. This is important because most countries in the region that did not face sanctions experienced negative economic growth due to the spread of the corona. This issue was also mentioned in the speech of the President.
According to the Islamic Republic News Agency, World Bank data and figures also confirm this economic superiority. Iran, like other countries in the world and the region, is facing and still struggling with the outbreak of coronary heart disease. But the fundamental difference between Iran's experience and the experience of other countries is that it faces the most severe sanctions.
The World Bank's annual report and the bank's estimates for the coming years also show a positive trend in the country's economic growth. Economic growth has risen from minus 6.5 percent in 2019-20 to 1.6 percent in 2020-21.
