Iran to pump billion tomans saving tourism economy

Concerning the fact that many countries across the world are experiencing new waves of infections, the number of people traveling to tourism destinations has been significantly decreased.

Tourism industry creates jobs with little formal training; Hotels, restaurants, Airlines, taxis, and souvenir stores are directly involved in the industry; however, suppliers also are considered as the indirect stakeholders of travel and tourism businesses.

Governments across the world have set immediate short and long solutions to mitigate the negative effects of the restrictions on tourism industry.

Balancing demand and supply, developing new forms of sustainable tourism, making best use of Iran’s territorial and cultural diversity, and helping cities to become more resilient to crises are the interventions that officials are trying to implement.

Pointing out to the prosperity of tourism in the country before the outbreak of Coronavirus, Iran's minister of Cultural Heritage, Tourism and Handicrafts Ali Asghar Mounesan said, "Tourism has been recognized as an income generator industry for the transformation of the country's economy. "

Iran is to pump 50 thousand billion tomans into its economy to help protect it from the impact of the coronavirus outbreak.

Ali Asghar Mounesan added, "The share of tourism out of the considered credit in the first stage is 7,000 billion tomans, and we try to break down the budget considering the level of damages inflicted on this industry."
