Iran Slams World Bank Politicized Approach: Official

TEHRAN ( Iran News ) – An Iranian deputy finance minister said an announcement last month by the World Bank about data collection irregularities used in compiling the annual Doing Business reports proved Iran was right in its criticism of the body and its rankings due to politicized approach. Mohammad Ali Dehqan said on Tuesday that for years Iran was of the view that the World Bank adopted a politicized approach in issuing its closely watched annual ranking of countries’ business and investment climates. “In dealing with countries, the World Bank has some sort of playing politics and unjust approach which we have repeatedly touched upon,” Dehqan was quoted by the IRIB News
