Hormuz Island is an Iranian island in the Persian Gulf, located in the Strait of Hormuz, eight kilometers (five miles) off the Iranian coast. With an area of 42 square kilometers (16 sq. mi), it is covered by sedimentary rocks and layers of volcanic materials on its surface.
As part of Hormuzgan Province, the island is sparsely inhabited, but some development has taken place since the late 20th century.
Mohammad Mohseni said the comprehensive plan for this island will determine the investment capacity and public services’ ability for future tourists, who will choose this island as a destination, pointing out the island’s natural and historical potential.
He said the purpose of this plan, which should first be verified by the island’s governor, is to improve the island’s quality of life and stabilize its population.
“Building infrastructures will cause new careers to rise and help enhance local life in the area,” he added.
“This plan will help us use all of our capacities to the utmost and take a big step toward tourism development,” he concluded.
