Iran will play host to the International Food Festival in August with presence of Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO) member states, head of the Coordination Committee of the Festival said Wednesday.

 The festival will be held in three departments of exhibition, education and science on August 11-16 in Tehran Milad Tower, Jalal Zokai said.

Speaking on the international dimension of the festival, he said that the 10 member states of the ECO - Iran, Turkey, Pakistan, Kirgizstan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan and Afghanistan - are seriously following the festival, and had announced their decision to participate under the banner of Pavilion of ECO Countries.

A number of European countries have also been communicated with, he said.

Embassies, friendship associations and international restaurants will participate in the international section of the festival, he said, adding that in the local part, Iranian firms active in hospitality, including hotels, restaurants and tourism companies will participate.

Seminars, forums and scientific gatherings will also be held on the sidelines of the festival on food and cuisine, as well as the nations' customs, traditions, culture and gastronomy tourism, according to the official.

A main cause of the idea of holding the festival, Zokai said, was to set the stage for people to get acquainted with the cultures of other countries, as well as presenting the Iranian food culture to the rest of the world.

Another interesting point about the festival is to look at food and its products from tourism perspective and then create a place for the participants to have fun and pleasure there, according to Zokai.

Iran intends to hold the festival annually and put it in the calendar of its exhibition, he said.
