According to the cultural reporter of Pouya Club of Journalists, on the sidelines of the book fair,
Mohammad Sultanifar, the press deputy of Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance in an answer to the
question about the supply of foreign current at exchange rate said,One of the 33 clauses announced by
the Cabinet in order to solve the currency problems is dedicated to paper deal at the exchange foreign
currency rate. Thus, all the companies selling paper are declared that if their paper is supplied even with
the Dollar of 4200 Tomans, they should write the statement saying that if the government returns the
difference between the Dollar at 4200 Tomans and the Dollar at the exchange rate of 3700 or 3800
Tomans, the companies and the paper sellers will have to return the difference which is calculated in
numbers and figures to the purchasers.
He added; As per the coordination with the Syndicate of Paper Sellers and the agreement with paper
wholesalers we have had since the last two days, the paper price has been supposed to be fixed to
reduce the fluctuation and turbulence on the market. Today, the paper is bought and sold at the Dollar
exchange rate of around 4200 Tomans which is fixed and there is no shortage of paper.
Explaining more on this issue, the press deputy of Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance assed, “Two
events happened in this field; firstly the USD at exchange rate has a difference about 500 Tomans with
official USD, and the second the official EURO (equivalent to 4200 tomans of the official rate of USD) has
been considered in this respect both of which had reduced the price of paper by about 200 Tomans; that
is, the paper sellers buy paper with USD of 4200 Tomans, its difference with the USD of exchange rate is
500 Tomans, and because of the official rate of Euro, less than 200 Tomans will be subtracted. Thus, I
hope that the paper delivered to consumer will be about 3500 Tomans. However, the sellers are paying
with the USD of 4200 Tomans for the paper delivered to consumers. If the government decides to py the
difference, the buyers can apply for the difference based on their invoices.”
In response to the question of not announcing the press licenses on the press deputy’s portal, he said,
“The statistics are still published on weekly basis.”
In response to the question regarding the license for the launch of Hamshahri News Agency, Sultanifar
said, “Its license has been issued and is likely to be launched.”
With regard to filtering Telegram and its impact on the increase in the circulations and the users of mass
media, the press deputy of Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance said, “The solution to the increase
of press circulation is not to close other media. If we were to follow this policy, we could reduce the
number of many of these licenses to increase the circulations of other media. The solution is not to close
a number of media and to prevent their activities.”
