IP - Yazd: President Rouhani said that job-creating for the young is an invaluable service and the knowledge-based economy is the best way to boost employment.

Iran Press/Iran News: Speaking late on Sunday at the session of the Administrative Council of Yazd Province, President Hassan Rouhani said, "Manufacturing all kinds of oil and gas pipelines by Iranian scientists is a great honor for the country".

The best way to boost employment is knowledge-based economy

"Science and knowledge have been taught by the Prophet of Islam as the way of development and advancement. He was the City of Knowledge and opened this door to mankind," he said.

Stressing that science and knowledge are the keys to all advancements, Rouhani said, "Great developments have taken place in the country because of science and knowledge".

"The big oil field that I announced was discovered because of scientific discoveries and our experts could make it happen by knowledge and technology," he continued.

Rouhani also went on to describe the start of operation of the turbine factory in Yazd and said, "We are very proud and happy that the entire oil and gas pipelines have been created using the turbines that our experts have created".

On the importance of work and effort, he said, "The Prophet (PBUH) told us to work round the clock because a person who works is a warrior".

The President also referred to the sponge steel production factory in Ardakan and said, "Today, the Chadormalu Mega-module Direct Reduction Plant started operation in Ardakan County with a capacity of producing 1.55m tonnes of sponge steel".

Nothing is worse than unemployment, said Rouhani, adding, "Some think that it is the government that creates employment, while it is not true. The government is responsible to provide the infrastructure, capital, and loans, the parliament is responsible to pass the required laws for loans, and the judiciary is responsible to provide security and job security. The rest is up to people".

Yazd is full of talent and strategic potentials

On the conditions of Yazd Province, the President said, "Yazd is full of talent and strategic potentials".

He went on to describe tourism as another important area for employment, saying, "Yazd has many potentials for tourism which can be taken advantage of to create more employment".

"Knowledge-based economy is the best way to create employment. Yazd has ample potentials in this field, and employment will be developed in the province by creating knowledge-based factory in the province," he continued.

Stating that different tastes and different opinions are natural, he said, "We do not think the same, but we have to live with it and stay together".

 "The candidate who wins the elections is not just the representative of those who have voted for them, but the entire nation's representative. Everybody must work with the elected person, for four years, and if they have different opinions, must wait until the next elections to choose their desired person," he continued.
