Subject: Iran to attract investors with free capital flows into country
TEHRAN, Nov 25 (AFP) - Iran is considering allowing capital to
flow freely into the country, in a bid to attract foreign investment
to its ailing economy.
Iranian Industries Minister Gholamreza Shafei was quoted by the
press Wednesday as saying that the government is planning to allow
investors to bring capital into the country and withdraw it "at
their own discretion" without permission from the government or
The proposal is part of the draft budget for the fiscal year
starting March 1999, which parliament will discuss in coming days.
"With the approval of the (investment) clause, foreign
investment will grow considerably," the English-language Iran News
quoted Shafei as saying.
Iran is trying to encourage private-sector and foreign
investment in its depressed economy in an attempt to diversify it
and cut the country's near total dependence on the sale of oil. Iran
is facing a severe cash crunch following plummetting oil prices.
The move, if ratified, is another step away from years of
central planning, nationalisation and an emphasis on national
self-sufficiency, though the private sector remains excluded from
telecommunications, oil and other "strategic" areas.
Foreign investors have been reluctant to deal with Iran's
byzantine bureaucratic procedures, whose regulations change
overnight. In addition, private property is subject to confiscation,
and the currency has yet to hit rock bottom.
Iran has attempted to make itself more attractive by creating
free-trade zones and designing buy-back plans to ensure steady
returns for foreign investors in the oil sector.
But the results seem to be limited, with Shafei putting total
foreign investment in Iran in the past six months at just over 70
