Background information

Iran has an abundant wealth in natural resources as it for instance has the largest natural gas supply worldwide. The country however is therefore reliant on its oil and gas exports. Iran’s economy is mixed. The agricultural, industrial and service sectors are all significant. The mix of state-owned or –controlled large companies is complemented by small-scale private trading and village agriculture. Inflation and statist policies such as price controls hamper service-based growth.

One-third of the available land is cultivated, mainly growing wheat, rice, other grains, sugar beets, sugarcane, fruits, nuts and cotton. The agricultural sector as a whole employs one-sixth of the total workforce and accounts for one-tenth of the total GDP. The Islamic republic is a net cereals importer: in fact almost one-third of the total domestic cereal consumption is imported.

Iran scored 0.766 on the HDI (2014), ranking among the countries exhibiting a high level of human development. According to the GHI (2015) malnutrition affects the country only with low severity. Overall, one-fifth of the population is living in poverty.
