Iran earns over $8b from tourism last year
Over six million foreign tourists visited Iran during the past Iranian calendar year ended on March 20, 2017, bringing eight billion dollars of foreign currencies to the country, an official at Iran’s chamber of commerce announced.

Head of the tourism commission at Iran’s Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture Ahmad Asghari-Qajari, made the announcement in this southwestern Iranian province on Sunday evening.

Asghari-Qajari said that the number of the tourists had a two million growth compared to the preceding year.

It is predicted that Iran's tourism industry will flourish after due infrastructure is supplied in that field, the official noted.

Referring to Iran's tourist attractions, Asghari-Qajari said that the country is among the top ten world tourism destinations.

He noted that efforts should be made to replace reliance on oil industry by tourism.

Iran is the safest country in the world to which the foreign tourists can comfortably travel without being concerned about security issues, the official concluded.
