Mohammad Reza Ansari told NIPNA that under the current circumstances,
“we should move towards completing the value chain and preventing crude oil sales,”
adding: “The replacement of non-oil exports to increase government revenues
should be a principle for statesmen; one of the sources for revenue generation
is the export of petrochemical products.”
"Petrochemicals are a major source of income for
the country, which account for the largest non-oil exports," he said,
emphasizing that more value could be created by completing the value chain in
Petrochemicals are now on the path to economic and
infrastructure development, the official added.
He went on to add that the petrochemical industry is a
lucrative industry for the country and that the industry is considered as a
mother industry for the country, which is essential for its development in a
variety of ways.
