According to Fars News Agency’s Cultural Heritage, Tourism and Handicrafts Reporter, Ezatullah Zarghami on the sidelines of the anniversary of Sardar Soleimani’s martyrdom, in response to a Fars reporter’s question about the problems of handicraft artists, said: Handicrafts are one of the most important economic, cultural and social issues. It is in the country and we discuss handicrafts as one of the examples of resistance economy in all high level administrative meetings.
He added: 70% of women are active in the field of handicrafts and 20% of these people are considered self-employed.
Zarghami stated: We have 120,000 officially registered people and 1.5 million people working in this field, but there are problems that we are trying to solve.
The Minister of Cultural Heritage, Tourism and Handicrafts said: “I meet with handicraft activists in every province I go to, one of their most important problems is insurance. Currently, some are insured and others are in line.”
He continued: “The President of the Republic gave a serious order to the two ministers to follow up on this issue in the cabinet meeting, but they have not been able to make a clear move yet because their credits have not been defined, but this problem will definitely be solved.”
Zarghami considered the issue of supply and sales principles as another problem of handicraft artists and said: “We followed up on this issue, but we told these people that they should have standard and practical packaging and brand.”
He added: “Due to the importance of supply and sales bases, we established bazaars in the provincial centers and coordinated them with portable structures so that handicrafts could be imported from all provinces.”
In response to another question from a Fars reporter regarding the protest of handicraft artists against the rent of the booths of the handicrafts exhibition, he said: “Wherever I went, I forgave the rent of the venues. I gave all the necessary explanations about the presence of handicraft activists, but I do not know about the latest decisions, of course, we still have time and we will inform.
Zarghami said: “Regarding the repayment of the corona facility, I approved all the loans to be approved by the government. This area does not open wide and bigger things need to be done.
The Minister of Cultural Heritage, Tourism and Handicrafts, in response to a reporter’s question about historical textures, said: “Some people think that historical textures are worn out and there are tribal disputes in this regard, but our expert opinion on heritage and registration laws is important.”
He added: “Those who think that the historical texture is similar to the worn texture and can be demolished and a new building built are wrong.” We try to preserve and restore famous historical monuments in the registered areas.
Zarghami stated: A committee has been formed with the presence of the Radio and Television Research Center, the Deputy Minister of Cultural Heritage and experienced experts to seriously study the issues.
In response to a Fars reporter about the historical context of Shiraz, he said: “All these cases also apply to the historical context of Shiraz, and we are trying to meet the needs of that region by preserving the status of cultural heritage.”
