An exhibition to familiarize the residents of the Iranian capital with the tourism potential of Kerman Province is scheduled for August 7-14 at Tehran’s Milad Tower.

The exhibition aims to display cultural, intellectual and historical capacities of the province, the Persian daily Donya-e-Eqtesad reported.

“Iran’s largest province, Kerman enjoys great economic and cultural potentials,” said Kerman Governor General Alireza Razm-Hosseini.

Speaking at a press conference on the festival and its programs, Razm-Hosseini, who heads the Kerman Cultural and Economic Festival, expounded on the province’s tourism potential and investment opportunities.

He noted that these events present a unique opportunity for the younger generation to appreciate the culture and traditions of different ethnic groups living in Iran.

“Kerman boasts numerous destinations that are ideal for domestic and international tourists looking for something different,” he said, adding that the province is replete with economic and tourism opportunities.

Razm-Hosseini said Kerman has a 500-year history in weaving and exporting fine Persian carpets and noted that 30% of Iran’s exported carpets are produced in the province.

The six-day festival is expected to showcase investment opportunities in the province to potential investors and entrepreneurs.

“The public and private sectors are invited to collaborate in helping expand rural economy, agriculture, industry and export of carpets, pistachio and other products of Kerman,” he said.

Covering an area of 7,000 square meters, the exhibition will exhibit the province’s tourism capacities, including the largest railroad network of the country. About 200 plans and projects aimed at efficient management of water resources will be presented at the event.
