He added: “We have tried to show Iran’s positive image to the world. Unfortunately, not enough information has been available on Iranian tourism on an international level to introduce Iranian society. We have not been very active in introducing the attractions of our country and this is a challenge for us on a global level.”
Persia Digest reports that Iran is hosting the UNWTO Summit in Hamedan from 12 to 16 November 2018.
Currently, UNWTO has 557 members from 157 countries, of which Iran’s share is 16 members.
