Iran welcomes active presence of foreign investors in its tourism infrastructure, Ahmadi said.

Referring to the experiences of Colombia in the field of hotel construction, the official said that grounds for the expansion of cooperation in museum sector are well-prepared. 

Setting up tourism exhibition can help introduce Iranian-made handicrafts to the Colombian people while introducing their handicrafts in the Iranian market, Ahmadi added.
