According to Shata, the MOU was signed by the Industry Minister Reza Rahmani and Mohammad Baqer Nobakht, the head of MPO, on Tuesday.

Completing 2,066 industrial and mining projects with above 60 percent physical progress and creating more than 130,000 job opportunities are some of the plans underlined in this MOU.
