LONDON, Oct 2 (IranMania) - The government’s new bill to revise the regulations of the Chamber of Commerce, Industries and Mines (ICCIM) intends to turn the chamber into an independent confederation in the near future, Mehr News Agency (MNA) reported.

The Iranian Minister of Commerce, Mohammad Shariatmadari said the bill of reforms would aim at giving a sort of autonomy to the provincial chambers all across the country, while still limiting their international interactions.

But the Parliament has its own view. "Parliament draft says the government should have no more seats in the chambers," the Minister stated. Generally, he said, this recommendation may lead to some limited changes in ICCIM’s statute.

"We need cooperation of the Majlis in order to make a basic shake-up in the current order of ICCIM and provincial chambers." The parliament’s foreign trade policy-making committee, which is trying to set its own reforms for the chambers of commerce, has already held talks with heads of provincial chambers.

Iran’s economy is a combination of state, private and cooperative sectors, Shariatmadari uttered, saying, “It should therefore include managers of each part in order to be secured.”

Meanwhile, he stressed that the private sector’s part in the country’s economy must grow.

“However, we recommend that the government will be allowed to keep its men in the chambers,” the minister concluded."
