Stressing that a one-year strategy of the Secretariat should be mapped out for further practices, he added, "In this regard, a calendar should be designed in the first place which will help us in introducing events."

Noting that the historical mansion house of Amin al-Tajjar is the best ever place to home the Secretariat of the World Handicrafts City, Ghasemzede continued, "

"Whenever I passed out in front of the historical house of Amin al-Tajjar, I was wretchedly upset because its capacity was ignored, but now I am very happy that this mansion house will be inagurated to the benefit of the city and its cultural heritage, and the Municipality of Isfahan is also all set to furnish the house."

Isfahan's Supreme Council of the Cultural Heritage, Tourism and Handicraft Organization has appointed the Mayor of Isfahan as the Secretary of Isfahan World Handicrafts City office for two consecutive years.
