Tehran, Oct 23, IRNA -- The Expediency Council on Saturday passed new decisions to privatize national economy and help rid it of stagnation.
"The new decisions will help speed up growth of national economy, boost efficiency and productivity of material and human resources and prepare the ground for competition in the economic sector," said a statement from the Expediency Council.

The Management and Planning Organization (MPO) has drawn up a 20-year economic, social and cultural development plan (2005-2025) which requires privatization of major enterprises now being run by the government.

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei forwarded the long-term vision plan to the heads of the three branches of government in order to be put into effect and assigned the Expediency Council to remove any obstacle that the strategic plan may find with the articles 43 and 44 of the Constitution.

The Constitution drawn up after victory of the Islamic Revolution has envisaged monopoly of government over national economy.

But, experience of the past 25 years proved that the state monopoly has brought stagnation to the economy sector.

The Expediency Council said that the government officials in charge of the economic affairs were present in the meeting and offered expert views about the topics being examined."
