The projects, which were put into operation in Yazd, Fars, and Kurdestan provinces create direct jobs for 950 people, IRNA reported.
The projects are for the production of sponge iron and gold bars, as well as the manufacturing of tow trucks.
According to Mehdi Sadeqi-Niaraki, the deputy minister of industry, mine, and trade, completing unfinished industrial projects and boosting the production of active units are the main goals of the ministry in the current Iranian calendar year.

The official also pointed to the ministry’s plans for reviving idle production units and said, “Based on this plan, reviving 1,500 industrial units in the current year is on the agenda.”
