This fund aims to evolve the foreign investments and bring Iran to a global stature. It was announced later that this fund will transform into a bank as raised to eight million euros and will benefit Iranians abroad.
03. EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES
With the lack of employment in the country, the country tends to develop on the remittance gained by Iranians living outside the country. This is possible due to the high demand of manpower all over the world and especially in Australia and Canada. The countries with less population have less people to work, with the aging population of various cities, the countries tend to employ people and help both the employee and the nation through various services.
04. REMITTANCE & HEALTHCARE SERVICES
Remittance serves as benefit for both the individuals’ family and his country. The predictability and level of remittance inflows receives full attention in policies for maximizing the benefits for developing economies.
