The second phase of the public intervention sessions to support the Syrian pound (Lira) is to start on 25th of the current month by the Syrian expatriates within “the Syrian Phoenix” which has been recently launched.
The campaign works through the expatriates buying Syrian currency or depositing US dollar into banks in Syria.
Co-organizer of the campaign, Nisreen Zreiq said that launching the second phase of intervention sessions for supporting the Syrian pound comes in conjunction with the celebration of Resistance and Liberation Day to emphasize that Syria is home for resistance and steadfastness.
She added that the campaign consists of seven successive sessions with an upward course, pointing out that the first phase is to buy the Syrian pounds from the international markets in order to increase their value internationally.
“Afterwards, there would be a focus on transferring money to Syria through deposits in local government banks without interests for a period no less than a year,” Zreiq clarified.
She added that 25 businessmen and businesswomen abroad have joined the campaign depositing sums of USD, minimum one million in the government banks as current accounts, noting that the number of the participants has reached 374 expatriates so far.
The second public campaign concentrates on supporting the national commodities, in addition to supporting exportation with the expatriates purchasing the national commodities and pumping them in the international markets providing that they are paid for through foreign currencies.
