The Iranian government is making efforts to tap the big-spending Chinese travelers through organizing international conferences aimed at bridging the gap of knowledge for the citizens of the Asian country.

Based on the latest figures provided by China's embassy, around 117,000 Iranians obtained visas to the country in 2017 while the number of Chinese tourists to Iran hardly reached 70,000, ISNA reported.
