A member of the oil and energy fraction of the Iranian parliament said the assembly is fully behind the petrochemical sector and is ready to help it in whatever way possible.
Speaking to NIPNA, Hedayatollah Khademi, who is also a
member of the energy committee of the parliament, said the body is prepared to
support the petrochemical industry’s development by passing supportive laws
that would address the sector’s issues.
He said the petrochemical industry is one of the sectors
that can generate the largest number of jobs in the country, adding there are
certain structural disorders in the sector that prevent attraction of new
investments in the industry that should be resolved.
The MP said the parliament must pave the ground for
investors to join petrochemical projects more freely, adding Iran’s share in
the global petrochemical market is not acceptable for the time being and must
be promoted in the near future.
He also said that plans must be made to wean the country off
oil revenues by developing petrochemical facilities across Iran.
