Iran eyes boost in marine, agritourism co-op with Vietnam

June 23, 2017

TEHRAN – Iran is interested in ramping up cooperation with Vietnam in the areas of marine traveling and agritourism, ISNA reported.

Iran’s tourism chief Zahra Ahmadipour and Vietnam’s Ambassador Nguyen Hong Thach discussed ways to attain the goal during a meeting in Tehran on Tuesday.

“Vietnam has worthy experiences in marine tourism so that it is considered as one of the appropriate platforms for increased interaction between the two countries,” Ahmadipour said.

Agritourism is one of other issues that should be taken into account in the light of the successful experiences of Vietnam in this regard, she said.

Hong Thach for his part pointed to cultural and historical themes that the two nations have in common, saying the ground is fertile for further tourism cooperation.

Vietnam and Iran established diplomatic relations in 1973. The relationship was strengthened with the establishment of the Vietnam-Iran Friendship Association in September 2009.
