In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate

I offer my gratitude to the Almighty Allah that the System's Interests Council with His guidance and assistance could accomplish undertakings considering its legal obligations in a 5-year term. Formulation and submission of the 20 Year Economic Vision and its general policies have stood atop the list of these services. I am bound to thank every respected member of the council and its secretariat, especially its respected head and his good management.

The respected council will find opportunities to view debates from different points through a proper and progressive makeup. At the same time, utilizing opinions of experts will help grant the council's ratifications sufficient reasoning.

For that reason, I deem it necessary to recommend the respected council to further utilize expert ideas to enhance the significant support and to urge its members to practice an active presence and engagement in reasoned debates.

Formulation of the documents and evidence through and based on which the council's ratifications have come about will no doubt be regarded among scientific documents to help researchers.
