October 13, 2018

TEHRAN – The director of the Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization has installed Vali Teymouri as his deputy for tourism affairs, ISNA reported on Friday.

Teymouri replaced Mohammad Khayatian who assumed the position, as a caretaker manager, in September.

Earlier this month, CHHTO Director Ali-Asghar Mounesan, who doubles as vice president, estimated that international arrivals in the country will be reaching seven million during the current Iranian calendar year (to be ended on March 20, 2019).

Under the 2025 Tourism Vision Plan, Iran is expecting to increase its foreign arrivals from 4.8 million in 2014 to 20 million.
