Iran international tourist risen in 2017!

Iran’s emergent tourism sector is expected to ramp up by 11.6 percent in 2017 by scoring over 5.5 million international tourist arrivals, the World Travel and Tourism Council suggested.
The country generated 130,525 billion rials (about $3.4 billion) in visitor exports in 2016 while its number of international tourist arrivals is expected to reach about 10 million by 2027, generating expenditure of 203,623 billion rials (about $5.2 billion), an increase of 3.4% year on year, WTTC said in a recent annual report titled “Travel and Tourism Economic Impact 2017– Iran”.
However, the forecasts provided by WTTC considerably differs from the goals set by the country for the coming decade. Under the 2025 Tourism Vision plan, Iran is expecting to increase the number of tourist arrivals from 4.8 million in 2014 to 20 million by 2025.
Iran seeks to acquire greater share of the global tourism industry, as relies on its world famous hospitality, countless natural beauties, deeply-rooted-in-time history and culture, as well as abundance of tourist sites, 21 of which have been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list.
