He said: "There have been defenders for the production of new and electric cars."

Ruhollah Izadkhah emphasized that the Ministry of Industry, Mine, and Trade has no plan for imports and increasing domestic production is on the agenda. Imports must be such that they do not inflame the domestic market.
