Abstract

Iron mines are already a sizable segment of the Iranian economy, but it has huge potential for development and can be the driver of further growth. This paper presents a strategic approach with hybrid Grey Relational Analysis (GRA) and Interpretive Structural Modeling (ISM) methodology for improving iron mines in Iran. At first these studies are established strategies and after that presented hybrid GRA and ISM analyses. The result shows  the strategic of priorities improvement iron mines are arranged in four levels in Iran: First, an innovative mining and minerals indu­stry with an excellent knowledge base, second, dialogue and cooperation to promote innovation and growth, third, Framework conditions and infrastruc­ture for competitiveness and growth, forth level, a mining and minerals industry in har­mony with the environment, culture and other industries and  an internationally renowned, active and attractive mining and minerals industry.
