PMO News Portal - Hadi Haghshenas, deputy of maritime affair
in Ports and Maritime Organization, pointed out that, unfortunately, Golestan,
Mazandaran and Khuzestan provinces were flooded this year, and there were tons
of negative advertisements discouraging people to travel to these destinations.
However, from March 16 to April 4 this year, marine trips grew by 9%, and 3.2
million people had sea trips during the mentioned period.
Certainly, if the recreational and accommodation facilities
in the islands of Hormuz, Qeshm, Lark and Kish are upgraded and increased,
considering that the cost of sea trips is much lower than other modes of
travel, we will see a dramatic increase in the number of sea trips.
Haghshenas added: In case of an increase in the number of
people traveling by sea, Ports and Maritime Organization will also provide more
facilities to maritime travel and tourism.
By increasing the number of traffic, the number of vessels and ships will be increased
by the Ports and Maritime Organization, and Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and
Tourism Organization of Iran will also consider more options in order to
improve the accommodation conditions on the islands and encourage more people
to consider marine trips.
Deputy of maritime affair in Ports and Maritime Organization
concluded that the first priority is to make ships and boats safer and more comfortable
for maritime passengers, and to improve accommodation facilities on the islands.
We believe that infrastructure must be developed in order to reach this goal.
