Some 3,650 agriculture projects worth 19 trillion rials (nearly $450 million) are going to be inaugurated across the country during the Government Week (August 24-30), IRIB reported on Sunday, citing the portal of the Ministry of Agriculture.

The projects cover a variety of areas including water, soil and infrastructure, livestock and poultry, complementary industries, natural resources, horticulture and rural cooperatives, according to the ministry’s public relations director Shahrokh Ramezan-Nejad.

“With the mentioned projects being launched, over 29,000 new job opportunities will also be created,” he added.

Government Week marks the martyrdom anniversary of President Mohammad-Ali Rajaei and Prime Minister Mohammad-Javad Bahonar on August 30, 1981, just two years after the victory of the Islamic Revolution in 1979.

Every year a number of development projects in different sectors are launched or inaugurated during this week across the country./ Tehran times /
