According to Eqtesadonline, quoting Mehr, غلامحسین شافعی, The head of the Iranian Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture issued a message on the occasion of the year 1400.
The text of this message is as follows:
O Transformer of the year and circumstances, make us feel better …
The beginning of spring is a prelude that revives the hope of renewal in hearts. The presenter of the seasons, by offering spring, proves that the distance between non-existence and existence can be short. Trees that until a few days ago looked like lifeless pieces of wood have now become a symbol of life and dynamism with green buds. This miracle of nature, displayed by the Master of the World, is the greatest cause for hope.
Maintaining hope in difficult situations shows its true meaning. In a year when hardships doubled and paths to challenges were narrower, we realized the importance of maintaining hope, otherwise we would have ignored the laws of nature.
Iran’s economy in 1399 went through the third year of recession, the effects of which are visible among all segments of society. At a time when cowardly sanctions had plagued Iran’s economy, the corona also came in and threatened the health of society and the economy at the same time.
Despite all the difficulties, economic actors at the forefront of countering sanctions and the corona managed to turn the wheel of production and exports and, for their part, prevent the escalation of difficulties.
In the last days of this difficult year, positive signs of opening up in international relations have emerged that have revived hopes for an end to the oppressive sanctions. On the other hand, with the spread of corona vaccines, there is a lot of hope for the end of the pandemic of this virus in the new year.
The appearance of these positive signs at the beginning of the spring of 1400 promises to reduce the difficulties on the way to the new century.
In these green days of spring, I wish health and well-being to all my compatriots, and I hope that together in the new year and the new century, we will create more beautiful days and moments for our dear Iran.
