Lashkari: The National Association’s efforts to use the capacities of the Government-Private Sector Dialogue Council and the Article 12 Committee

Lashkari confirmed that the National Association should use the capacities of this council to solve its union problems, and one of the main requests of the association from this council was to obtain a license to hold the “Iran Plast” exhibition. Let’s read the conversation of this member of the board of directors of the association with “INPIA”. Why was this meeting held in the presence of Mr. Salahvarzi? This need was felt to convey the views of the board of directors of the Iranian Plastics and Polymer Association to the Private Sector and Government Dialogue Council. In this meeting of the Board of Directors, which was chaired by Mr. Safaei, first Mr. Motusalian as the Chairman of the Board of the National Association, while analyzing the situation of this industry and introducing the position of the National Association in the plastic industry, production and export opportunities and employment. He presented the industry and after him, each member of the board of directors presented the problems of the members of the association from their point of view, and at the end, Dr. Salahvarzi expressed his views and the board of directors of the Iran Chamber. What were the most important issues raised at the meeting? “Iran Plast” exhibition was presented and how it is possible that prominent organizations and industry owners do not play a role in this biggest national event and the Iran Plast regulations are not implemented and become an insidious market for second-hand and third-hand Chinese companies To open the intermediaries to the Iranian market and there was a request from the Dialogue Council of the Chamber of Commerce to enter into this issue and to convene expert meetings to implement the regulations and obtain permission to hold this exhibition by the organizations of this industry. The issue of VAT was also raised, and due to the time sensitivity of this law, which is currently in parliament and is to be changed from temporary to permanent, and the problems that the incomplete implementation of this temporary law brings to the plastics industry. Incomplete implementation of this law in practice has created problems for certified producers, and according to the agreement of the guild chamber with the Ministry of Finance, in practice, retail trade units pay their taxes according to that agreement, and for this reason, many These retail units in the distribution network are not willing to take invoices from manufacturers. With this agreement, the production units with ID cards were legally in trouble. Much of the energy of the managers of these units, instead of innovating and improving systems, seeks to solve such problems with assets. Friends suggested that the incomplete implementation of this law has led to corruption and rent-seeking, and that some units have recently been activated in connection with the sale of the code, raising concerns for economic actors. What are the consequences of the change in the government management of the Ministry of Industry? This issue was also discussed at the meeting and the members of the board correctly explained that the discussion of the plastics industry is new compared to many other industries such as tanning, shoes and leather, but in relation to employment and exports, significant capacities. Has created in the Iranian economy. In this regard, we expect the Dialogue Council of the Chamber of Commerce to enter and provide the necessary support in this area. It should be noted that the performance of large state-owned companies has shown that if they played a role in economic growth, but in sustainable and inclusive employment, small and medium-sized industries such as the plastics industry are more serious, and large industrial units can not For the sake of their short-term interests, enter into the discussion of sustainable employment. In the continuation of this meeting, it was stated that due to the fact that the middle and lower industries have a great role in creating employment, but now they are vulnerable and issues such as value added and social security and its late penalties and cash payments have been paid to them. At the same time, it must take risks in employment and increase production and exports. How much is the government willing to benefit the industrialist in return for the costs it imposes on industry? Therefore, in return, we expect the government to cooperate in order to eliminate the problems in front of the craftsmen. Many problems arose, including claims from state-owned companies. Government friends are apparently not obligated to pay their debts to the industry on time and are not willing to pay late fines. Sometimes the time of our claims from state-owned companies takes up to 3 years, and recently the public sector has given a form to some of the companies that are part of our contract and we will pay for the goods that you gave us 4 years ago. Meanwhile, some banks that were active in this regard have written to the units, now we are ready to pay your money in cash, but on the condition that we reduce it by 2% !!. Just look at the negative impact of this story on liquidity pressures and declining profits and the continuity of corporate operations. See how much the government pays for the industry. It was also discussed at the meeting that in the discussion of the supply of raw materials, if the public sector is willing to give half of the facilities it gives to foreigners to domestic industries, many problems in the field of employment will be solved. Or, for example, friends suggested that if employment is the main concern for the whole country and people, the employment law will not solve the employment problem and should be revised. What was said about the cost price of the members of the association? It was argued that changing some of the raw material supply procedures in the commodity exchange would increase prices. When the demand ceiling for PVC is lifted and a competitive price is created, last year the ratio of traded price to base price increased by 4%.
