TEHRAN (Reuters) - The volume of foreign investments reached about 10 times after the nuclear deal came into effect in January 2015, Iranian government spokesman Mohammad Baqir Nobkhat said on Sunday.
"In light of the mechanisms created by the US administration, the situation in the international economy has developed in difficult circumstances, but the situation could improve in the future," he said.
He said the 10-fold increase in foreign investment in the country is an indicator of the government's proper performance, adding that our agenda includes the provision of internal resources by providing facilities to the non-governmental sector in order to activate the stagnant sections.
The government has increased its domestic investment by 7.1 percent and to reach an 8 percent growth in the economy, it is estimated that 770,000 trillion riyals ($ 35,000) of investment will be required annually.
