"Per capita we could be the wealthiest, I am quiet sure and I am confident we could be the wealthiest. Now of course the reality is not as promising as one can see, but if we can implement programs impacting on the economy of this country and if regional and global circumstances help in a way, definitely with all the drive we have now and the qualities we mentioned earlier about responsible people, hard working people, confident people, you can imagine that. I may not quantitatively say but qualitatively we will be not less than any advanced country in the region. Even the oil rich countries, we may not brag about being as wealthy as those countries per capital. But generally speaking we will be one of the major economic units in this region."
