The President invited the Iranian and foreign investors to take full advantage of the investment opportunities in Iran, stressing, that two thirds of the country's banks' assets are allocated to be spent in large industries and other macro-scale economic investments." Evaluating the general process of making foreign investments in the country's steel, aluminum, oil, gas, and mine sectors as "satisfactory", Ahmadinejad said, "The government is determined to limit state investments and therefore, the Iranian and foreign investors have a very good chance to invest calmly and contribute to Iran's advancement and development."
