As reported, a total of 1.69 quadrillion rials (about $40.23 billion) has been invested in the mentioned projects that are going to create job opportunities for 41,000 people.

Based on the ministry data, since the beginning of the current year up to June 16, 196 industrial, mining and trade projects worth 230 trillion rials (about $5.48b) went operational throughout the country.
