The notable point is that since 2 months ago no one thought about a way to prevent the unemployment and exit the red situation and while importers can’t do anything they try to lower their human resources to control the budget. Now, lots of people are waiting to be unemployment in the next days or months.
The most worrying thing is that even after the government lifts the ban of importation, importers can’t import vehicle like the past due to the sanctions. This means that the only way for importer companies to continue is transforming to after sales service companies.
"According to the statistics near 3200 person have been unemployed since the past 2 months. If this condition continues then more people will have this destiny in the next months.” Mehdi Dadfar, secretary of vehicle importers association told Khodrocar reporter.

The successive shutting down of car importer companies, reduced automobile production, the import of imported cars and automotive parts, the withdrawal of the United States and, ultimately, the imposition of sanctions on Iran, all went hand in hand so that the industry The magnitude of the automobile with a slap of unemployed and moderate human resources.
