Iran to set up artificial lake on Kish Island
Tehran, Iran, Oct. 23
The managing director of Kish Free Zone Organization said the country plans to build an artificial lake on Kish Island to attract more tourists and revive the tourism industry there.
We plan to create an artificial lake on the island to absorb more foreign tourists, Mohammad-Ebrahim Ansari-Lari said, ILNA reported on October 23.
The Kish Island could serve as a window for Iran’s interaction with the world, he added.
“We are seeking to prepare the ground for further foreign investment at the island,” he said.
Numerous projects will come on stream in the near future in the island, Ansari-Lari said.
A new terminal with a capacity of transferring six million passengers will be launched on the island soon.
Kish is an island in the Persian Gulf, off the southern coast of Iran. On the east side, known for offshore coral reefs, beaches include Marjan Beach Park. Dolphin Park features dolphins, seals, and birds. Tax-free shopping malls pack the area around the island’s huge Pier. North are the preserved ruins of ancient city of Harireh.
