The article discusses pricing in the petrochemical industry in Iran. The pricing of petrochemical products will remain under the regulation of the Economic Council for the immediate future. Iran has made suggestions that it will move away from state manipulation of prices towards a free-market mechanism, a view shared by many officials and company executives. Petrochemical prices in Iran could be 50% to 70% lower than those on the international markets.
