Supreme Leader Meets with Laborers
On the eve of International Labor Day, Ayatollah Khamenei the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution met today with a group of exemplary laborers from across the country. Speaking at the meeting, His Eminence described labor as the driving force behind the progress of all societies.
Ayatollah Khamenei said that socialist and capitalist governments take advantage of laborers and added that in contrast to socialism and capitalism, Islam is honest with laborers and considers labor as valuable.
The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution said that it is necessary to apply Islamic principles to labor and laborers. He added that investment and labor are two essential requirements for national production and progress. \\\\\\\"It is necessary to value Iranian labor and investment so that national production becomes viable in the real sense of the word.\\\\\\\"
His Eminence stressed that the enemies have focused their plots on economic issues and added: \\\\\\\"The signs of this great plot are becoming more visible on a daily basis in current conditions. But by Allah\\\\\\\'s favor, the Iranian nation will remove this obstacle from its path by relying on the same willpower that helped them remove the previous obstacles.\\\\\\\"
The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution stated that the efforts of Iranian laborers, investors and managers are the requirement for overcoming the economic plots of the enemy. He reiterated: \\\\\\\"The people should also reveal their determination to oppose the enemy by consuming our domestic products.\\\\\\\"
Ayatollah Khamenei stressed that the government should pay attention to the issue of domestic production and stated: \\\\\\\"There is a need for fundamental work in this area. The strength our economy depends on constant efforts by the executive, legislative and judiciary branches of government.\\\\\\\"
His Eminence said that supporting healthy economic activities, labor, production and investment is among the responsibilities of the three branches of government. He referred to the measures that should be adopted in this regard and added: \\\\\\\"Improving skills, training the workforce, adopting the correct managerial perspective and creating a sense of security both for laborers and for investors are among the things that should be done.\\\\\\\"
The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution said that confronting and combating economic disruption in an appropriate way is a necessity for strengthening domestic production. He added that smuggling and misusing the money that the people have invested in the banks are among the manifestations of economic disruption.
He explained: \\\\\\\"Receiving large amounts of money from our banks to spend on a particular project and then diverting the money to other things is an example of treachery and stealing from the people, and it is necessary to confront such people.\\\\\\\"
Ayatollah Khamenei said that creating competition, improving the quality of domestic products and minimizing the cost of production are other requirements for national production. He added: \\\\\\\"The government should help our production units in this regard.\\\\\\\"
The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution stressed: \\\\\\\"The three branches of government, different governmental organizations, the private sector, those who are in charge of improving the culture of our society, the IRIB and everybody else should be at the service of national production so that by Allah\\\\\\\'s favor, we can strike a serious blow to the blood-thirsty enemies of the Iranian nation.\\\\\\\" Show Less >>
