With its several thousand years old civilization, Iran has many historic and natural resources.
Known formally as Persia until 1935, Iran became an Islamic republic in 1979 after the ruling Shah was forced into exile. Conservative clerical forces subsequently crushed Westernization and also any liberal/left-wing influences. Current issues affecting the country include the pace of accepting outside modernizing influences and reconciliation between clerical control of the regime and widespread demands for reform and popular government participation. Inflation and unemployment (particularly among youth) are major economic challenges.
Günter Klatt recently travelled across Iran and will share his impressions of the country, including Isfahan, the former capital with stunning architecture, a great bazaar, and tree-lined boulevards; Shiraz, home of Persian poets such as Hafiz and Saadi, known for its magnificent gardens and close to the famous ruins of Persepolis; Yazd, a remote desert city, where houses have underground rooms with water streams and wind towers to keep them cool.
For questions please contact Günter directly ([masked]).

    Thank you all for attending! It was a delight to see that so many people turned up last night despite the footie, and I enjoyed giving the presentation, especially because I had some experts in the audience I could rely on in case of challenging questions. I'm really sorry had to skip a few stations of my trip because of time constraints ... I know now that 370 slides are a bit much for an evening :-)

    I don't know! I fell asleep, I am ashamed to say, but the few minutes I captured looked great :)
