Vision of a New Iran

For a new, free Iran to assume its rightful place as a world powerhouse, certain key visions must be realized, and considerable expertise and investment will be required to implement them. The following are a number of key strategies that we have identified. We intend to further refine and add to these as we work closely with experts and scholars, inside and outside Iran. Consider this a working document—a step toward formulating a final plan.


  1. Maximizing the Existing Oil and Gas Resources: Iran possesses vast reserves of oil and gas, which have historically been the backbone of its economy. To ensure the nation's continued prosperity, it's imperative to harness these resources to their fullest potential efficiently and responsibly. This means implementing state-of-the-art extraction and refining techniques, reducing wastage, and ensuring that the infrastructure is in place to transport these resources to where they're most needed. By efficiently utilizing and optimizing these reserves, we can provide a steady stream of revenue to fuel economic growth. However, it's equally important to recognize that over-reliance on oil and gas can make the economy vulnerable to global market fluctuations. As such, while we maximize the benefits from these resources, we must also actively pursue diversification strategies. 

  2. Economic Diversification: We envision a new Iran having a diversified economy beyond its current reliance on oil and gas exports. Encouraging the development of such sectors as technology, manufacturing, tourism, and services will promote more stable and sustainable economic growth and
    encourage a broad range of opportunities.

  3. Education and Innovation: Iran already has a highly literate workforce, eager to learn and able to innovate—if given the proper educational opportunities. Investments in education and research will yield tremendous returns. By promoting education in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), we can nurture a generation of innovators able to advance in a broad range of fields.  Our Farnavard program is an example of how we anticipate building on Iran’s vast human capital.

  4. Infrastructure Development: Modern and efficient infrastructure is essential for economic growth. A new Iran will need to improve the country’s transportation network, energy systems, communication technologies, and other critical infrastructure to attract investment and support business operations. 

  5. Foreign Investment and Trade: As a revitalized Iran takes its place in the world economy, it will need to draw considerable foreign direct investment. Establishing strong trade relationships with other countries will require a favorable business environment with attractive trade policies and free-trade zones. The result will be economic growth and technological advancement.

  6. Political Stability and International Relations: International success will require domestic stability. In other words, maintaining political stability at home can help assure a positive image abroad. Both are vital for attracting investments, fostering trade partnerships, and gaining diplomatic influence. A new, free Iran can build constructive relationships with other nations and engage in diplomacy to resolve conflicts and promote cooperation.

  7. Human Rights and Rule of Law: Iran must signal its recovery from long decades of repression with a firm commitment to uphold basic human rights and the rule of law. This is critical on a human level at home, while enhancing Iran's reputation abroad—thereby attracting investors and partners. Upholding principles of democracy, justice, and transparency can foster trust and strengthen Iran’s global standing.

  8. Energy and Environmental Sustainability: Iran has immense potential for renewable energy, particularly solar and wind power. Developing these renewable energy sources can not only contribute to environmental sustainability but also reduce dependence on fossil fuels and provide opportunities for export.

  9. Cultural Diplomacy: The Iranian renaissance will be cultural as well as political and economic. The country’s deep, rich cultural heritage can be leveraged for soft power and diplomacy. Promoting Iranian arts, music, literature, and tourism can help foster cultural exchanges and enhance Iran’s global reputation and influence.


All these strategies require long-term planning, effective governance, and coordinated efforts across various sectors. As noted, these can be refined and added to. But as guiding principles, we see these strategies as vital for establishing Iran not only as an economic powerhouse, but as a beacon to the world—a shining testimony to the irrepressible nature of the human spirit.
