Austria to invest in Iran mountain tourism

Austria says it is prepared to provide finance for the development of mountain tourism in Iran given its great capacity to attract foreign tourists.

Speaking in a meeting on Iran-Austria joint investments in Iran’s mountain tourism, Austrian embassy’s Commercial Counselor in Tehran Christoph Grabmayr said his country is well-known for its investments in tourism across the world.

"Iran enjoys a rich culture and history. Meanwhile, the Iranians’ hospitality is highly attractive for foreign tourists," he was quoted as saying in a Farsi report by IRNA.

He then expressed hope that, as announced officially, Iran would be able to attract 20 million foreign tourists by the next seven years.

"Due to our interest in Iran’s mountain tourism and Austrian companies’ experiences in this field, we are ready to provide finance for mountain tourism in Iran," he noted.
