Rouhani clarified about the 1400 budget, noting: "This budget had an important message for the society. The message was that the year 1400(2021) would be different from this year and the year before; both politically, and economically as well as the development of the construction budget, which has raised the expectations of the people, and in the shadow of this positive expectation, we are witnessing a positive change in the economy, agriculture, and services."

Stating that economic growth has been positive in the first six months of the year, the President said: "Economic growth will be positive despite the problems until the end of the year. We will be on the path of curbing the acceleration of inflation, and this month's statistics show us the same fact."
