Using capacities of Makran coast is being pursued in cabinet, at the national level / Progress Fund to be created in the provinces around country

Referring to the sale of agricultural products to neighbours, Ayatollah Raisi said, "We agree to create a common border market for the sale of agricultural products in the province to neighbouring countries".

Speaking on Thursday in a meeting with various groups of the people of Hormozgan, Ayatollah Dr Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi described the province as having diverse resources and said, "Hormozgan has the sea, mines, industries, efficient and educated human resources who are ready to work".

The President said, "There is good cohesion among all ethnic groups in this region. This capital must be maintained and strengthened".

Referring to the martyrdom of divers and the role of the province in the Imposed War with Iraq, Dr Raisi said, "The armed forces protected the country by protecting the sea and against the American troops and the forces that are present in the region".

The President clarified, "The government and the governor-general of this province should use the help of researchers who have worked on removing poverty".

Emphasising that taking advantage of local human resources takes precedence over non-local ones, Ayatollah Raisi said, "This is an important issue for local human resources to play a role in the province's industries, agriculture and development".

Referring to the importance of Makran coasts, the President said, "In the cabinet, we proposed the maximum use of the capacities of these coasts and a mechanism was approved for it so that we can make full use of this capital at the national level and with the cooperation of ministries".

Stating that national industries have an important share and executive responsibility in the development of Hormozgan, Dr Raisi said, "All active industries in the province should play their role and spend a percentage of their income in that region".

The President mentioned the creation of a progress fund as one of the innovations of the 1401 budget and said, "With the establishment of a progress fund in the provinces from the beginning of next year, the government will pay a petty cash to all funds and the province's revenues such as tax surplus, mines and surplus property will be deposited to the fund in a way that the province can complete semi-finished projects by creating jobs".

Referring to the sale of agricultural products to neighbours, Ayatollah Raisi said, "We agree to create a common border market for the sale of agricultural products in the province to neighbouring countries".

Rejecting the sale of raw materials, the President noted, "Activating downstream industries such as petrochemicals can create added value, and Hormozgan province has the capacity to create conversion industries to prevent the sale of raw materials".

Referring to the need for problem-orientation in the country, Dr Raisi said, "The Supreme Leader of the Revolution also emphasised problem-orientation, and the presentation of a "system of problems" and the realisation of popular participation and the people's government can be very effective in overcoming problems".

Regarding the shortage of doctors, medical staff and medical centres in Hormozgan, Ayatollah Raisi said, "This issue is being pursued in the administrative council of the province and justice requires that doctors be available to all Iranians because it is not acceptable for a patient to die due to lack of doctors".

In response to the request of one of the speakers to establish a kindergarten in the departments, the President said, "This issue is a right and will be pursued".
