Iran PressIran news: In the 'Special News Conversation' program of Iran's TV channel 2 on Sunday night, Abdolnaser Hemmati stated that the largest tax exemption should be allocated to producers to solve production problems.

He noted that producers had many problems with banks, insurance companies, and the tax administration, but the Central Bank had resolved a significant part of them in the past few years.

He said the country's entire budget should be taxed and that the main reason for the 20 percent annual growth in inflation over the past three decades, as well as the annual increase in liquidity in recent years, had been the neglect of proper taxation and the budget deficit.

Hemmati also said about his administration's policy towards paying subsidies to the people, that the method of paying subsidies needed to be reformed and its payment should be effective in people's livelihood, and those who could not afford the necessary goods would achieve it through subsidies.

He claimed that with the help of cyberspace, one million jobs could be created annually, and the problem of unemployment could be solved in a few years.

He added that his administration's approach to the capital market would also be supportive.
