Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct.20/ Trend F.Milad/
Kish Island, located in the Persian Gulf, is an appropriate place which can provide Iran and Tajikistan with opportunities to expand bilateral tourism, IRNA quoted Kish free zone's director Reza Samadi as saying.
"Numerous tourist spots and suitable infrastructures in Kish lay the ground for foreign investors, including Tajik investors, to launch tourism activities in Kish," he said, adding that Kish hosts some one million tourists every year.
Iranian and Tajik free trade zones signed a memorandum of understanding on Friday.
The memorandum was signed at the closing of an exclusive exhibition on Iran's free zones which was held in Tajik capital Dushanbe, ILNA reported.
The event aims to give a boost to economic, industrial and cultural ties between the two countries.
Investments and joint venture opportunities in Iran's free zones and special economic zones, meeting needs of Tajikistan and other Central Asian nations, were presented to visitors in the Persian, English, and Russian languages.
The exhibitions of books, handicrafts and traditional arts were also held.
