Mahmoud Sijani told IRNA that due to the spread of the coronavirus and the declining tourism sector, production is now more important than ever to the provincial authorities.
He went on to say that provincial producers have played a major role in recent months and they have the ability to develop their activities despite the US sanctions and the problems created by the coronavirus.
The officials of Qom, within the framework of the specialized committees of the headquarters for facilitating and removing production barriers, and other working groups have supported the industry sector by approving and implementing many resolutions, Sijani said.
Officials have given top priority to supporting investors and private sector activists in Qom in an effort to develop the province’s economy, he said, adding that during recent years significant practical measures have been taken, among which the most important is the issue of boosting production facilities to provide the capital needed by firms.
According to the statistics, the volume of investment for industrial and mining units in Qom Province is more than $1.2 billion, creating job opportunities for 56,804 people.
Qom Province has seven industrial parks namely Shokuhiyeh, Al-Ghadir, Chap-va-Nashr (Printing and Publishing), Salafchegan, Mahmoudabad, Samen ul-A’emeh -- Qanawat — and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) as well as four industrial zones of Khurabad, Dastjerd, Siro and Taghroud.
