In a meeting with Yukiharu Kobayashi, the head of JICA’s office in Iran early this week detailed on studies targeted on the broader aim of creating job opportunities through tourism projects and safeguarding heritage sites, CHTN reported.

“The nature of tourism is interlinked with sustainable development and productivity,” he said.

In the first phase, feasibility studies caused in the selection of six cities with high possibility  in terms of tourism development, namely Tabriz, Isfahan, Shiraz, Ahvaz, Yazd and Tehran.

“In the second phase, Tabriz was selected to serve as a pilot for the implementation of the projects,” Kobayashi said.

As per the official, the projects at present in progress comprise empowering locals in manufacturing handicrafts, creating an artwork market on Qeshm Island, growing more boat tours and training sailors on the ways to introduce the marine sites to tourists.
Few of the other proposed projects comprise the development of a workshop as well as a museum on boat building, a longstanding profession in Gouran Village on Qeshm Island, which could assist in turning the area into a tourism attraction.

On the basis of the agreement with Iran, JICA is to offer Japan’s experience and knowledge to the Iranian tourism authorities in the field and launch tourism plans that not only aid the sector in general, at the same time allows official entities to share the generated income with the locals which is not happening right now
