a time when violent extremism is trying to destroy diversity and liberties, Nowruz recalls the power of culture and heritage to build strong and sustainable societies”, said Director-General of UNESCO, Irina Bokova, in her Nowruz message 2017. Thus she has given the motto of this year's Nowruz event in Hamburg. Under the title “Break into the future. Tajikistan, the Central Asian countries and Iran”, experts presented the potential for German companies in the region. A matter truly dear to the heart of Kourosh Pourkian, Honorary Consul of Tajikistan! As President of the Nowruz Forum Germany, the business consultant has set himself the task of using the peace message of the three-thousand-year-old Persian Spring and New Year festival Nowruz for an economic and cultural exchange between Northern Germany and the Nowruz countries. In cooperation with the Embassy of Tajikistan he invited to the Nowruz Fireplace Talk and cultural evening in the “Villa Schöne Aussicht”. During the talk show, Asgarkhel Mangal, owner of an international transport company, confirmed the reputation of “Made in Germany” in the Nowruz region. The investment advisor Hans-Joachim Siegert from Tajinvest promoted the Tajik agricultural sector.
