In this study the role of imposed facilities of the cooperation sector to create job opportunities in Khorasan province during the years 2000-2004 (3rd Development Plan) is examined. The theoretical framework of the research was established using library method. The findings showed that imposed facilities have realized 58.5% of the predicted job opportunities. Cooperation projects in agriculture & service sectors are more successful than industrial sectors in regard to job creation and development, complementary and construction projects have no significant difference in regard to job creation. Also facilities needed for employment of one individual in various economic sectors of several cities are shown to have no significant difference. In addition if the government aims to attract various small and scattered investments, imposed facilities constitute an effective factor, as the increase in the amount of facilities results in increased investments by the executors of cooperative projects.
