Dastgheib, the chairperson of Shiraz Islamic City Council, who attended the “16th World Conference of League Historical Cities (LHC)” in Bursa, Turkey put an emphasis on making Shiraz known internationally, presenting it well, organizing and holding different thematic international events.
He said “the conference is a good place and opportunity to present Shiraz better, pave the way for establishing and deepening our collaboration with the world historical cities and exchange the urban-related already-gained experiences.”
Dastgheib added “in some neighboring countries to Iran which enjoy, like Shiraz, rich historical backgrounds, we can notice that they employ all their assets to present their countries worldwide and develop their tourism infrastructures to attract foreign tourists. Their key success factor is the integrated and centralized management. A comprehensive planning and having a systematic centralized thinking behind urban management and its sub-sectors are the important elements for all-inclusive urban development particularly tourist industry development.”
