Abolfazl Roghani, the head of the Industrial Commission of the Chamber of the Commerce, appreciating such activities to introduce small industries, said, “One of the most important problems of our industries is the fact that the macro approaches are not clear.”

Stating that we have not yet been able to take advantage of the small and medium- size units correctly, the head of the Industrial Commission of the Chamber of the Commerce continued, “We have had poor diplomacy in economic diplomacy, However, we can remove the weakness of the small and medium-size enterprises, especially in the field of distribution and exports by using the powerful and mother corporations that can coordinate and lead the medium-size and small units in the form of their chain and cluster.”
To complete this discussion, Najafi stated, “They can come in industrial and economic fields as a kind of contractor and take advantage of individual small units to move forward to the goals.”

Stating that he wishes the industrial management were coordinated and did not active individually, this economic activist said, “The challenges we are currently facing have resulted from acting separately and not having a complete and comprehensive and long-term strategy.”
Roghani added, “Fr example, 90% of the analysis was for trump’s breaching the treaty, but when we know what problems will be created after it, why have we not set up one or several plans to confront it and the issues like the oil sanctions.”
The head of Industrial Commission of Iran Chamber of the Commerce continued, “When we know we will have problems with foreign currencies and exports why have we not programmed for them?”
Stating that small enterprises do not have the capability and the possibility of overseas marketing, Roghani said, “The removal of such issues is the responsibility of the Organization of Industrial Towns, and we hope that the plans which are presented in this field and are being carried out will reach a good result, and next year the authorities of the exhibition present a high rate of exports in their statistics.”
