TEHRAN – The leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, on Sunday outlined policies to achieve social security goals in line with the goals of the Constitution.
Policies aim to improve social welfare, eliminate poverty and support vulnerable sections of society, primarily the elderly, the disabled and people without caregivers.
Achieving the goals involves an efficient, justice-based and comprehensive administrative system in line with Islamic-Iranian patterns and driven by public participation that will expand services to underprivileged people living in urban and rural areas.
Filling social gaps by reforming subsidy schemes, promoting the culture of job creation, removing barriers for all people to benefit from public resources and offering fertility services to families with the aim of increasing population growth are among other policy goals.
In his New Year message, Ayatollah Khamenei called on the government and the nation to work hard to increase knowledge-based production and create new jobs.
The manager again stressed the importance of boosting domestic production, as he had done in recent years, and said that the reason he put so much emphasis on production was, “because it boosts economic growth, it creates employment, it reduces inflation, it increases income per capita, it improves public welfare. ”
“Furthermore, it also has psychological effects, as it increases national self-confidence and creates a sense of dignity in the nation.
