NCRI - According to Iranian regime’s Parliament Speaker, there’s no sign of prosperity in Iran’s economy and the proposed government budget is not even enough for running the country, let alone shaking up the country’s sluggish economy.
“The country’s total income, coming from oil, tax and other sources of revenue, hardly reaches 300 billion thousand tomans (nearly $70 billion). So, the country’s current expenditure should be limited as much”, says Ali Larijani.
NCRI - The Deputy of the Iranian Chamber of Commerce announced that despite the establishment of a $1 billion credit line (by Iran regime) for Syria, this country has created “restrictions” on import of Iranian goods.

NCRI - The European Union is Iran's biggest trading partner at $8 billion a year (and pending deals that may increase it further) but do Britain, France, and Germany value that partnership over their supposed opposition to the Iranian Regime’s nuclear weapons programme?
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) - the UN’s nuclear watchdog- recently released a report that Iran had secretly made highly-enriched uranium and plutonium- a clear violation of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty- and deliberately hid the evidence for almost 20 years.
NCRI - During factional feud among Iranian regime officials, the state-run Etemad newspaper acknowledged the institutionalized corruption as the root of the super-challenges of the system, and in an article on 20 November 2017 titled “The Super Challenge of Iranian Economy” wrote: “We are facing four super-challenges, the first of which is the fundamental decision-making system.”

NCRI - After the initial euphoria caused by the lifting of the sanctions on Iran, French companies interested in working with Iran are now in a state of despair and disappointment, according to the French Economic publication, the Challenge.
The French publication wrote: “The official lifting of sanctions against Iran in January 2016 created great hope for French companies. Nearly two years after that date, we are now seeing disappointment among the French businessmen and industries.”
NCRI - Reports indicate that bank restrictions for Iranians in China and Malaysia and the closure of a number of their bank accounts have started in these two countries.
"China has been restricting its banking ties with us for weeks," Ali Shariati, a member of Iran's Chamber of Commerce told state-run ILNA news agency on Tuesday, November 14. “Especially with Trump’s trip to the country, this trend has intensified, but in Malaysia, the banks have announced a few days ago to some Iranian businessmen and even Iranian students that they cannot provide them with banking services.”
NCRI - Head of the Iranian regime’s Court of Audit says that unlike Iran, in no place in the world, the amount of government debt is “confidential”; the country's budget balance in 2016 has reached negative 61 thousand, and "disorderliness and lack of transparency" are the "black hole" of Iran's budget.
According to the state-run Tasnim news agency affiliated to terrorist Quds force on Monday, November 13, Adel Azar announced the issue at a public session of parliament, and said: “One of the key indicators of the budget is its operational level. In 2011, this level was 28 thousand negatives and in in 2016, it was 61 thousand negatives showing that we have to sell the assets and resources of the country, which are oil and companies, to provide the necessary money.”
