Half of Industrial Units Operating Above 50% Capacity

Minister of Industries, Mining and Trade Mohammad Shariatmadari said only half of Iran’s active industrial units are operating above 50% of their capacity.

Nevertheless, the minister added that applications to set up new industrial units registered a 23% increase during the nine months to Dec. 22, 2017, compared with the previous year’s corresponding period, Financial Tribune’s sister newspaper Donya-e-Eqtesad reported.

Shariatmadri believes high bank interest rates have greatly disturbed the production sector, as profits made in industrial units are low compared to the interest rates.
