 President ROUHANI 

The government needs to prepare

the ground for private sector participation and foreign investor attraction across the Fars province. Regarding Fars potentials in tourism, industry and mine, oil and gas, agriculture, and etc. we should try to do our best to make the best use of them.

    

Mr AHMADI, Fars Governor General

 

Fars province is of importance due its potentials in industry, agriculture, mining, tourism, and etc. So, officials should try to equip the domestic ressources, attract foreign investments, and guide ressources to the way of productive economic activities.

Moreover, resistance economic policies make these activities necessary which can lead to the revolution in the country's economy as well as the province's. Due to the Fars potentials in private sector and good infrastructures for industrial, trade, and tourism developments this region provides considerable grounds for both foreign and domestic investors.

Considering the Investment Promotion and Protection Act and also the officials' efforts to provide the proper ground for investing, we believe in the presence of investors.

    

Mr TAJGARDOON, Assistant of Planning and Employment

 

Potentials of Fars create proper conditions for investment; geographical location, climate variability, different types of agricultural activities, industrial products, several industrial zones, mineral resources, tourism attractions, closeness to the Persian Gulf, and etc. all lead Fars toward the economic development. Fars Investment Services Center tries to solve investors' problems by its legitimate power.

We aim to introduce Fars Province Investment opportunities and advise investors pay attention to the guidance of our counselors in order to make the best possible decision.
