• Drive to Draw World's  Most Splurging Tourists

    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. 
    Despite rather close commercial relations with China, Iran's share of the world's largest tourism source market is far smaller than its potential. 
    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. 
    Although the population of Chinese visitors to Iran has increased by 8% over the past six months according to a government official, it is a long way from the target of taking 1% of the market.
