Mehdi Qazanfari noted that the fund is considering the diversification of its input resources based on the country’s potentials and capacities in various areas other than oil.
“One of our challenges at the National Development Fund is to determine how much of the fund’s resources would be stabilization resources, how much development resources, and how much should be kept for the future generations,” Qazanfari said.
Stating that the National Development Fund belongs to the people of Iran, he said: “We should all try to realize the fund’s major goals and we hope that more steps will be taken in all dimensions to do so.”
The National Development Fund of Iran is Iran's sovereign wealth fund. It was founded in 2011 to supplement the Oil Stabilization Fund. NDF is independent of the government's budget. Based on Article 84 of the Fifth Five-year National Development Plan (2010–2015), the National Development Fund was established to transform oil and gas revenues into productive investments for future generations.
