Iran Turns to Turkish Investors to Help It Build Tourism Infrastructure
A delegation of Turkish investors met with director of Iran’s cultural heritage and tourism organization, Masoud Soltanifar, and voiced their readiness to invest in Iran’s tourism sector.
The Turkish investors said they were particularly interested in building hotels in Iran, the IRNA news agency reported on August 31.
According to a crash program, the number of 4- and 5-star hotels in Iran should be increased by three-fold over the next ten years, Soltanifar said.
In May, Iranian president Hassan Rouhani announced that the number of foreign tourists who visited Iran in last two months indicates a three-time increase compared to the same period of the preceding year.
