16 Countries to Attend Silk Road Conference in Iran

Silk Road

The International Silk Road Conference will be held from September 23 to 29 in the Iranian city of Hamadan with the participations of representatives from 16 countries.

Hamadan Governor General for Coordination of Civil Affairs, Mahmoud Reza Araqi, says introducing and highlighting the province’s historical monuments is the main theme of the conference.

Our most important goal is to provide conditions for global registration of historical monuments of Hamadan, he added.

“Dr Mansour Gholami, Minister of Science, Research and Technology, will be one of the speakers of the conference,” he said.

“The head of the UNESCO is also expected to attend,” he noted.

Hamadan was chosen as Asia’s hub of tourism in 2018 by the Asia Cooperation Dialogue (ACD).

Hamadan’s tourism potential includes its Imam Square, the Hegmataneh (Ecbatana) historical site, the Pisa Hill, the Hajiabad Hill, the Baba Tahir Tomb, Avicenna’s Tomb, etc.

Some archaeologists believe the city dates back to the Median era.

The IFP Editorial Staff is composed of dozens of skilled journalists, news-writers, and analysts whose works are edited and published by experienced editors specialized in Iran News. The editor of each IFP Service is responsible for the report published by the Iran Front Page (IFP) news website, and can be contacted through the ways mentioned in the "IFP Editorial Staff" section.


  1. Hi there,
    I am doing some search about South of Iran Folklore and the heroes of Pars Sea, and Seyraf, ( Taheri port). I have done lots of reading. The names are written in Farsi and finding them in English or French version does not end to a good result. I was searching to see in which museum are the silk road Iranian traders( mostly from Seiraf), There is a picture of their statues, but not the name of museum of where they are now. I will be more than thankful if you can help me.
