Iran, Thailand to expand tourism ties

Iran, Thailand to expand tourism ties

Iran and Thailand will share experience in the field of tourism as a result of a recently signed deal, said Morteza Rahmani-Movahed, the deputy head of Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization.


In a meeting with Suvit Maesincee, the deputy Commerce Minister of Thailand, Rahmani-Movahed said the two countries seek a balance in the number of tourists visiting each other's country.

“Tourism can help both nations expand cordial relations and forge stronger ties,” he noted.

The official proposed that joint training courses be held on subjects such as hotel management, health tourism, spa tourism, rafting and ecotourism.

He also called for setting up tourism information offices in Thailand for publicizing Iran's tourism potentials and encouraging Thais to travel to Iran.

The official described Tehran International Tourism Fair, which is slated for Feb. 16-19, 2016, as a good venue for introducing the attractions of the two nations.

Maesincee described Iran as one of the top destinations for the Thais.

Highlighting the link between expansion of tourism and economic development, he called for increasing investments in the tourism sector.

Maesincee welcomed Iran's proposal on joint training courses on tourism and said his country is ready to cooperate with Iran in all fields pertaining to tourism.
