The one-day event in Indonesia’s capital brought together key officials and private sector leaders from both nations for business meetings and discussions on future tourism agreements, as reported by IRNA.

Emphasizing the significance of such events in strengthening bilateral relations, Iranian Deputy Tourism Minister Ali-Asghar Shalbafian met with Indonesian Deputy Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy Martini Mohamad Paham.

Shalbafian highlighted Iran’s diverse travel offerings, noting that the country is renowned not only for religious, cultural, handicraft, and culinary tourism but also for medical tourism.

“Iran is one of the top destinations for high-tech medical treatments in the Middle East,” he stated.

Additionally, Iranian Ambassador to Indonesia Mohammad Boroujerdi discussed the progress in tourism cooperation between the two nations.

“We are working with the Indonesian government to finalize administrative steps to obtain direct flight permits between Iran and Indonesia,” the Ambassador noted.

The event continued with the signing of a memorandum of understanding for cooperation between the Head of the Iranian Tour Association, Mustafa Shafiei-Shakib and the General Chairperson of the Central Executive Board of the Indonesian Tour and Travel Association (ASITA), Nunung Rusmiati.

Then the travel agencies held a B2B meeting to produce a collaboration that is expected to increase the number of tourists in both countries.

The event, which was part of Iran’s framework of Tourism Roadshow Southeast Asia 2024, came after holding sessions in Vietnamese capital of Hanoi and Malaysian one, Kuala Lumpur, with the goal of bolstering tourism bonds.
