MELLAT CO. FOR TRAVEL AND TOURISM:
As a group, we were among the first companies to hold a strongly optimistic view for the future of tourism in Kurdistan region because of its stark beauty and temperate climate. Accordingly, we have invested in various tourism-related projects such as travel companies, restaurants, passenger buses and car rental. At present, we are constructing a one five star hotel and another 4-star hotel, in addition to cooperation with an international company specialized in touristic air travel services, both public and private. We also have made the necessary arrangements and drawn international contracts with the most respectable and experienced hospitality school and touristic services. We have made a qualitative leap by entering into a contract with an international group specialized in the running and management of hotels and touristic complex, and we are in the process of signing a contract to manage and run several hotels. Above all, we are gearing up to actively participate in the important event of nominating Erbil to be the capital of Arab Tourism for the year 2014.
