(31/1/2017) ~ President Bashar al-Assad received on Tuesday a number of industrialists from Damascus and its countryside who were affected due to the crisis and lost their facilities, but have been back to work with small workshops.

Discussion during the meeting focused on the difficulties facing the Syrian industrialists under the current circumstances and the possible solutions needed for overcoming these difficulties that would enable industrialists to get back on their feet and develop their industries, which would contribute to pushing the economic wheel forward.

The President said the Syrians’ will to live is one of the most important factors that has helped Syria stand its ground in the face of what it is going through, noting that the Syrian industrialists who have remained steadfast and continued their work despite of the losses they suffered are “a source of pride”.


He noted that the war waged on Syria has not been limited to the military aspect, as it has other aspects, including the economic one, stressing that the industrialists’ insistence to continue work, even if on a small scale, has positively contributed to keeping the country’s economic wheel moving.

The industrialists, for their part, spoke of the losses their factories have suffered during the war, and how these losses did not discourage them from continuing their work, as they resorted to relying on small workshops that would help them survive until they are back to their factories.

They affirmed that despite the difficulties, they have been able to resume their work and are determined to bring production to its former level so that they can achieve their objective of returning back to the Arab and international markets.
