Tourism to bring more foreign currencies into Iran

TEHRAN, Aug. 20 (MNA) – Governor of the Central Bank of Iran has said the development of tourism would result in the flow of foreign currencies as part of non-oil economy.

Addressing a gathering with the theme of "Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism" in Tehran on Thursday, Valiollah Seif commented on the capacity of Iran's tourism industry.

Pointing to Iran's rich historical, diverse climate and ethnic variety, he stressed there are other opportunities in health and medical sectors to attract foreign tourists.

According to the head of the Iran Touring and Tourism Investment Company (ITTIC) Mohsen Gharib, Iran will face a “tsunami” of foreign tourists once sanctions on the country are lifted.

“Nearly 20 million foreign tourists will probably visit Iran within the next five years,” Gharbi has recently said.
