Chairperson of the Syrian Investment Commission (SIC) Hala Ghazal said the current investment map features small, medium and miscellaneous projects in all sectors, with a reshuffling of priorities prompted by the current crisis in Syria.
Ghazal’s comments came during her meeting with a delegation from FEARAB Venezuela and members of the Syrian community in Venezuela.
Applauding the reconstruction process as a “great national project” that includes short-term, medium-term and long-term projects, Ghazal said the “green sector” related to alternative energy and waste recycling is prioritized.
She hailed the delegation’s visit as a “step forward towards bolstering economic ties between the two countries and an opportunity for investors to get to know and promote projects, as well as bringing Syrian expat investors on board in the rebuilding process in Syria.”
Venezuela’s ambassador in Damascus Imad Saab signaled his country’s readiness to unsparingly help Syria under the crisis engulfing it, pointing out that a joint committee has been set up to follow up on “investment keys”.
“The meeting,” he saw, “is a real opportunity for Venezuelan businessmen and private sector to inspect the basic needs and investment opportunities that might pay dividends for the Syrian people.”
Chairman of FEARAB Venezuela and Venezuelan MP Adel al-Sughayar said the visit is aimed to inspect the needs of the Syrian investment market and search for mechanisms of offering help.
The delegation members, for their part, vowed to be the link between their homeland and the Syrian expats, demanding that mutual economic and trade agreements be enforced to attract investors.
