“If we are concerned about production, employment, and investment in the country, these sectors should be considered. The government should try to provide the necessary conditions and requirements for their activities,” he stressed.

By identifying priorities, the government tries to urge the private sector to plan in accordance with these priorities, and in the next stage, it supports them in achieving these goals, the official said.
