Inaugurating the forum, Tajikistan Ambassador to Iran, Mr. Nizomiddin Zohidi, reportedly highlighted the current state and prospects of further expansion of bilateral cooperation between Tajikistan and Iran in the light of the recent official visit of Tajik President Emomali Rahmon to Iran (May 29-30, 2022).

In statements delivered at the forum, top managers of Tajikistan’s tour companies – Orient Tour, Rasoul Tour, Go Travel and Khidmatrasonii Sayohi – reportedly presented the tourist potential areas of Tajikistan.

Photos and a documentary about Tajikistan’s attractions were showcased on the sidelines of the forum that resulted in signing of a number of cooperation documents, according to the Tajik MFA information department.
