“About 400 trillion rials (about $9.5 billion) has also been allocated for job creation, so we can say that in the next year’s budget bill more than 3 quadrillion rials (about $71.42 billion) will be allocated for development projects and creating jobs,” he added.

Back in October, Nobakht announced that the government is going to allocate all revenues from oil sales to the development projects following structural reforms in the next Iranian calendar year’s budget bill.
