Iran is to launch 196 projects in the energy field by the end of the current Iranian calendar year (March 20, 2021), said Minister of Energy Reza Ardakanian on Thursday.

He said that the projects to be inaugurated worth 34,000 billion tomans (one US Dollar=22,000 tomans).

Ardakanian made the remarks during a virtual ceremony to inaugurate two big development projects in two border provinces in western Iran, IRNA reported.

The projects were inaugurated by President Hassan Rouhani who referred to them as "a great development” made since the victory of the 1979 Islamic Revolution, particularly during the seven years of his term in office.

The two projects, related to modern irrigation system and soil development, cover 23,000 hectare areas in two provinces of Ilam and Kermanshah.  

According to the Energy Minister the two newly-inaugurated projects will lead to four times rise in agricultural products in the two provinces.
