-- Best wetlands, rivers for fishing in Iran

Fishing, this ancient practice, has been with humanity since almost 40,000 years ago and today, it is bigger than it has ever been before. Although most of the fishes caught each year are because of commercial fishing (and as every year passed, this number becomes larger), sportfishing has not died out yet. Of all the people who like sportfishing and do it from time to time, some may choose to let these slippery creatures back to the wild after the day is done, and some may choose to make a delicious meal out of them.
But one thing that all of them can agree upon is the joy of fishing itself. That’s where we get to the main question: Where can you go fishing in Iran, 1stquest.com wrote.
Iran may have hit a bad spot in the last few years with the drought. And it had its effect on the rivers and lakes all across the country but still, there are a lot of places for fishing in Iran and we at the 1stQuest have found you a collection of perfect spots for a nice, relaxing day to enjoy your fishing.

-- Home appliance trade balance to become 100% positive by 2025

 Iranian Industry, Mining, and Trade Minister Reza Fatemi Amin has said the country’s home appliance exports are set to become twice as much as the volume of imports by the Iranian calendar year 1404 (starts in March 2025), IRNA reported.

Speaking in a meeting with the representatives of the country’s home appliance manufacturers on Saturday, Fatemi Amin said: “Statistics show that the export of home appliances is much less than the imports in this sector.”

Emphasizing that despite the growth of production in the home appliance industry, the ratio of exports to imports is not defensible, the official added: "This trend should change so that the exports to imports ratio would double by 1404."

-- What are expert prospects for tourism recovery?

 Though international tourism has revealed signs of a rebound as some destinations eased travel restrictions over the past couple of months, the lack of international coordination and slow vaccination rates in several countries and regions suggest it may need a longer time to bounce back.

On the one hand, according to the latest edition of the UNWTO World Tourism Barometer, an estimated 54 million tourists crossed international borders in July 2021, down 67% from the same month in 2019, but the strongest results since April 2020. This compares to an estimated 34 million international arrivals recorded in July 2020, though well below the 164 million figure recorded in 2019.

On the other hand, another research conducted by Oxford Economics on behalf of the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) reveals that countries’ GDP is expected to increase only by less than one-third, as tourism is recovering even slower than expected. The research was based on the current vaccination rates globally, consumer confidence, and less stringent entry and travel restrictions in the world.
