(MENAFN) Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, Leader of the Islamic Revolution, on Monday stressed the necessity for financial expansion to tackle poverty and support welfare in the society.
“We must have economic growth if we wish to eradicate poverty and raise welfare in the country,” Ayatollah Khamenei announced in a conference with a group of businesspersons, manufacturers, and representatives from knowledge-based companies.
“We are obviously facing the issue of people's livelihood and welfare, and these concerns cannot be remedied without economic growth,” Ayatollah Khamenei added.
The Leader stressed that for the extinction of poverty and the resolution of problems relating to people's livelihood and the welfare of families, there has to be financial expansion.
He underlined the necessity for Iran to continue rising economically to keep its place in the world and the area.
“A nation's economic situation has a significant impact on its development. The economic potential of a country as well as its standing in the globe would all decline if its currency debilitates. We need economic growth to continue to hold our place in the region and the world,” the Leader added.
