The issue of investment in the process of economic and social development is of great importance; in fact investment has to be considered as the precondition and actually the necessary condition of production. Economists consider investment as the driving force and the engine of economic growth and development and have designed all the necessary patterns according to this assumption.

In most of the experts’ view there is a significant and inevitable relationship between growth and the amount of investment so that it is impossible to reach the first without having the second. Optimized use of production resources which is an accepted strategy is only possible through investment and it approves the importance of investment in economic growth and development. Increasing the productive forces of the society that leads to production growth, economic development, perfect employment, and especially income growth is not possible without domestic and foreign investment and using capitals in different economic activities and that’s why investment is considered as the most basic factor of regional and national development.

One of the approaches presented by the experts to pave the way to attract different kinds of investment is presenting appropriate and accessible information of investment characteristics to national and international investment centers. Providing right, timely, and accessible information increases the motivation of investors to start their activity in the province. In fact clear and accessible information motivates the investors to evaluate the projects and the flow of investment in the province will be facilitated and accelerated. To this goal, Yazd’s Investment service Center has compiled and designed the CD of “Yazd, the Land of Brilliant Investment Opportunities” including introduction of the province, advantages and potentials of investment in different sectors, general and especial opportunities for investment, the regulations related to attracting and supporting the investors, and number of questions and answers considering foreign investors attraction. This picture CD has been provided in the province for the first time in both Persian and English languages. We hope it can be a good guide to introduce this province to potential domestic and foreign investors and prepare the ground for investment in the province more than before.
