IMIDRO chief steps down

Iran Daily - - Domestic Economy -

Chair­man of the Ira­nian Mines and Min­ing In­dus­tries De­vel­op­ment and Ren­o­va­tion Or­ga­ni­za­tion (IMIDRO) Me­hdi Kar­basian re­signed on Thurs­day.

Ac­cord­ing to Fars News Agency, Kar­basian quit his post as the head of IMIDRO fol­low­ing the rat­i­fi­ca­tion of a leg­is­la­tion re­quir­ing re­tired em­ploy­ees to quit their posts.

The im­por­tant new re­tire­ment law, ap­proved by the Guardian Coun­cil and en­acted by the Ira­nian Par­lia­ment, could ef­fec­tively put an end to the decades-long prac­tice of reem­ploy­ment of some govern­ment em­ploy­ees upon their re­tire­ment.

Kar­basian an­nounced his res­ig­na­tion dur­ing a re­cent meet­ing in Tehran with se­nior IMIDRO of­fi­cials.

He added that Ardeshir Sa’ad Mo­ham­madi, the deputy head of IMIDRO for mines and min­ing in­dus­tries de­vel­op­ment, will re­place him tem­po­rar­ily.

IMIDRO is a ma­jor state-owned hold­ing com­pany ac­tive in the min­ing sec­tor in Iran.

IMIDRO has eight ma­jor com­pa­nies and 55 op­er­a­tional sub­sidiaries ac­tive in steel, alu­minum, cop­per, ce­ment and min­eral ex­ploita­tion fields.
