Iran is going to hold an exhibition on villages, covering a wide range of features from rural music and dance to handicraft, agriculture, architecture, tourism, and fashion, an official told Trend.

This will be an economic, cultural, and social event, which aims at helping develop rural industries, the public relations official at the Presidential Department of Rural and Underdeveloped Areas of Iran, Hadis Pazoki said.

To be kicked off in early January, the exhibition and a related conference will bring together foreign officials to Iran, for a meeting with First Vice Presdient Es’haq Jahangiri.
