CEO’s message

At a time, in which countries are struggling to achieve the Millennium Development Goals and are in the process of forming global development plans following 2015, the International organizations attempt to introduce the culture as a stimulation of sustainable human resource development for future development targets and goals and consider it as the newest and strongest path towards development through a perspective focused on the economy and the culture. This perspective reminds us that economy is part of the culture. The creative and cultural economy has become a huge revolutionary power in today's world which owns the fastest growth in terms of income generating, job creation and export promotion in the areas of natural and cultural heritage, tourism, handicrafts, books and magazines, media, design and creative services and entertainment and sports. Meanwhile, in comparison to the world countries, Iran has many capacities in economy and culture. These capacities are in the areas of cultural heritage, tourism and creative industries, and Iran is among the most authentic countries with these potentials. The Cultural Heritage and Tourism Investment Group of Iran (Semega), which is the first public tourism holding company in the country, by creating the appropriate infrastructure and strategic planning for developing the tourism industry, has been able to provide an appropriate ground for the creation and development of a valuable chain for creating wealth for shareholders.
