Germany’s TUI Group, the world’s largest leisure, travel and tourism company, is reported to be considering investment in Iran.
The minister of economic affairs, labor and transport for the federal state of Lower Saxony in Germany, Olaf Lies, told PressTV that preliminary negotiations have been held for the multinational tour operator to enter Iran and make investments.
He said that there was also a possibility of direct flight between Hanover and Tehran.
Meanwhile, Switzerland’s OrientStay has launched an Airbnb-style accommodation service in Iran for people to list, find, and rent lodging.
Iranian officials say the country plans to attract 20 million foreign tourists in order to generate up to $30 billion of revenues a year by 2025.
