Iran revs up auto industry as sanctions ease

Country wants to be one of top 10 automakers in the world by producing up to 3 million cars a year.

A recent nuclear agreement between Iran and world powers means sanctions on its automobile industry will be eased.

The restrictions hit the sector particularly hard, slashing profits and jobs.

In the city of Karaj, site of Iran’s biggest car manufacturing plant, there is hope things are about to turn around.
