    Many of our industries (say pharmaceuticals, for example) depend on raw materials imported from other countries. A nation alone cannot produce all raw materials on her own, no matter how prosperous and well-endowed she is. Sanctions have affected the importing of raw materials greatly. Moreover, a successful industry should also lead to economic profit. Because we can't export our industrial products to other countries, our industries have not grown to their full capacity and they do not have a high share in our GDP. Energy and oil derivatives (oil, gas, petrochemicals and electricity) still account for a great percentage of our exports.

    Poor management is a valid excuse for some of our industries that are controlled by semi-private or public sectors. We all know that nepotism and monopoly of companies linked to the clergy and the IRGC exist in Iran. But there are other factors like
    1. Lack of proper competition due to high tariffs on imports, and the fact that major companies do not invest in Iran because of sanctions,
    2. Lack of proper incentives to support production and improper tax laws that are applied selectively,
    3. Lack of access to free markets for purchasing raw materials,
    4. Lack of access to international banks to export industrialized products

    If Iran wants to become an industrialized country, it must overcome those problems.

    When I said Ahmadinejad's policies, I was not idolizing Ahmadinejad himself. I have to emphasize that I agree with his foreign policies only, I have no love for the guy himself.

    It is true that Iran should expand its industrial exports, but it should be made clear that if Iran wasnt producing so much for itself, it would have to import it all.

    Turkey with a similar population, for example imports around 5 billion dollars of medicine. We would be doing the same if we didnt produuce 98% of our own medical needs.

    So even though are not exporting enough industrial goods, the fact that we produce so much means that we dont waste our money on imports.

    That's true, but Turkey exports her products to regional countries, including Iran, and it has a higher share of the markets in the Middle East. Even in Iraq, Turkey has a higher share of the market than Iran.

    Our industries have been created to meet the local demands because of sanctions but we need to grow industries that can export our products to foreign markets. We can target low-income countries as I said. Just like what China did when they were a country under international pressure and Western sanctions with hundreds of millions of really poor people in 1970s.

    it says quick reaction jet for others wondering... and yeah very interesting... but it will need a certain amount of speed and A2A weapons for such a job, so I'm not sure how wise that is, but interesting nonetheless

    Mainly because they rely on foreign materials or base substances and they have problem acquiring them from abroad

    Iran can make rocket engine and drone engine (toloue) and jet engine (owj), so why not comparatively simple car engine...?

    As far as I know IKCO produces car engines itself, it had some technical assistance from European countries, but still self sufficient in this area now I think...

    I'm impressed, this is a full scale professional SLM machine. It can't do wonders and print anything but it is close to state of the art and useful for special components.
    It can handle titanium and nickel alloys.
