Iran to ban certain foreign products

The Iranian cabinet is set to issue orders soon to ban purchase of foreign products that are produced inside the country, Fars news has reported. The decision aims to promote productivity by limiting imports of foreign goods, said first vice president Mohammad Reza Rahimi. Once the decision has been approved, "the government sector will supply its needs from domestic manufacturers, and this will, in fact, support the country's producers and industrialists," Rahimi added.
