The article reports on the lifting of state controls on the price of petrochemicals in Iran. The government plans to cut its restrictions on petrochemical prices. In line with the move, National Petrochemical Co. will remove subsidies which have been offered to keep the prices for certain products low. The move to cut subsidies is also seen as a way to lower corruption by some petrochemical companies that resell polymers.
