CBI Governor Underlines Stable Economy despite Harsh US Sanctions

Governor of the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) Abdolnasser Hemmati stressed that enemies' plots and US sanctions to create instability in the country's economy have all failed.

FARS- "Fortunately, the enemies have not reached their main goal that is the collapse of Iran's economy," Hemmati said, addressing economic activists on the Iranian Kish island in the Persian Gulf on Saturday.
"At present, stability rules the country's economy and planning has been possible to improve the conditions and for economic growth and development," he added.
Hemmati said that over $19bln of foreign currency has been supplied to import goods for the needs of people, adding that $11bln of the money has been provided through non-oil exports.
In relevant remarks on Wednesday, Iranian Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri underlined the US failure to attain its desired results and push Iran's economy into collapse through economic sanctions.
Jahangiri made the remarks, addressing a meeting of members of Council of Senior Directors of Maritime Organs.
He added that Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei delineated a major strategy, that's to say active resistance, in the face of the US maximum pressure.
Congratulating senior directors of the country's maritime organs on The World Maritime Day, Jahangiri appreciated them for their endeavors in tough times of sanctions.
"Era of Sacred Defense is the era of tough times and sacrifice, solidarity and sympathy at the same time," he said.
"We have learnt a lot from the era of Sacred Defense and we should review them now that the US has started economic war against the Iranian nation," Jahangiri said.
Referring to US attempts to bring Iran oil exports down to zero, he said that due to Iran oil sector officials' struggles this did not happen.
The senior official also hailed Iran's achievements in the sea transportation, saying that the US has also targeted Iran's maritime transportation sector.
