Mohammad-Baqer Qalibaf made the remarks at a news program broadcast live on state TV channels 2 on Saturday evening.
As for his plan to create his promised five million job opportunities for the Iranians, Qalibaf, 55, said it is a 'necessity' that its materialization 'requires three basic factors including money, work force and technology and I believe we have all these factors in our country.'
The presidential hopeful further said that promotion of foreign and domestic tourism can prepare the ground for creating another one million job opportunities in the country.
Qalibaf, who also serves as Tehran mayor, talked off his plans stressing that “production” will be the high priority for his administration.
He stressed that employment will rise after irregular imports are prevented.
