Jask Free Trade Zone serves as safe int'l link

Bandar Abbas, Feb 28, IRNA – Governor-General of Hormuzgan Province said on Sunday that Jask Free Trade Zone serves as important international link for Iran, adding that capacities of Makran Coast are useful for foreign trade.

Fereydoun Hemmati said establishing Jask Free Zone was very useful for foreign trade thanks to the human resources available in the province, adding that it is necessary to promote security, social welfare and economy of the region.

Taking advantage of human resources of the province and creating jobs is one of the main parameters for attracting people's participation in economic development, he added.

Earlier on November 19, 2020, Hemmati said that 97 kilometers of road was inaugurated in the provincial city of Jask, and 171 more kilometers are under construction in five projects.
