Argentina does not have the mining tradition of other South American countries, but this could begin to change. The government wants to draw 30 billion dollars in foreign investment to tap the great mining potential along the eastern slope of the Andes mountain range, stretching from north to south.
Studies show that the factors which contributed to Iran's economic growth in the year to mid-March 2015 are either no longer at play in the current year or have activated reverse mechanisms. Apparently, given the country's current economic outlook, the factors will not begin to have a positive bearing on the domestic financial system until the removal of Western sanctions.

Deputy head for research at the Presidential Office’s Management and Planning Institute Mehdi Barakchian believes that Iran's economy has to tackle four main bottlenecks to achieve a high economic growth in a short period.
Childbearing opportunities are lost in Iran due to the rising population of unmarried girls, death of husbands and divorces, said Ali Akbar Mahzoun, the head of State Civil Registration Organization for Information, Statistics and Migration.
The failure to offer proper training to youths is the main cause of the rise in both marriage age and divorce rate, said the head of Sports and Youth Ministry's Ilam Department for Cultural and Youth Affairs.
