Aras Free Trade Zone is all preparedAras Free Trade Zone will soon be turned into a holiday destination as six quality hotels and 23 restaurants are in the process of getting live in the coming days. To quote Mohsen Khadem Arab-Baghi, the head of Aras Free Trade Zone Organization, ‘the newly-built structures ‘were operational during the two-week Norouz (Iranian New Year) holidays (March 21-April 2), boosting the zone’s capacity to host tourists. There was a noticeable rise in the number of Norouz tourists this year, forcing us to issue permits to local homeowners to host tourists. A number of hotels are currently under construction to ease accommodation shortage and develop hoteliering and consequently tourism industry in the region.’

Kish Island, Qeshm Island, Chabahar, Anzali, Arvand, Maku and Aras – these islands are the home to seven free trade zones in Iran. In the coming years, it has all the possibility of becoming a major player in tourism as the place has strong historical links with its northern neighbors. Located in northwest Iran in East Azerbaijan Province, Aras borders Armenia, Azerbaijan and the semi-autonomous Nakhchivan region, which belongs to Azerbaijan. Also, the city has become a sort of an entryway to mainland Iran from the northern CIS states. The Commonwealth of Independent States is an association formed after the disintegration of USSR.
