Iran will be the world's top 12th economy of the world by the next five years, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stated.

Iran's economy is currently in the 17th place in the world, the president said, adding by 2015 (the end of the fifth five-year development plan) the country would be in the 12th place.

The 20-Year Outlook Plan has envisaged ranking the first in the region by the next twenty years, but the country is already in the first place in many fields, Ahmadinejad added.
