(SHADA: TEHRAN) -- Speaking to Radio Eghtesad, Farhad Dejpasand said that the enemy's plans to harm the country's economy have failed with the effective presence of the people.
The country has experienced very difficult conditions in the last two years, Dejpasand added.
After 40 years of the establishment of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the enemy was still trying to challenge the country, but the strong presence of the people in the economy prevented the enemy from achieving its goals, he noted.
The volume of foreign trade of the country in the first ten months of this year was similar to that of the previous year, indicating that the enemy's plans in this regard have failed, the Minister of Economic Affairs and Finance said.
The enemy in this situation has made every effort to prevent foreign investors from entering Iran, Dejpasand stated.
Despite all the obstacles, barriers and restrictions created by the enemy, approved foreign investment in the country has increased by 50% over the same ten-month period of the previous year, he continued.
The efforts and resistance of the people along with the authorities in the face of sanctions, pressures and restrictions have made the enemy's plans failed one after another, Dejpasand said.
Forecasts by international organizations such as the IMF and the World Bank are that Iran's economic conditions will be better in terms of economic growth and inflation next year, he continued.
