He added that Syria has begun a phase of economic recovery, explaining that Damascus is working to issue developed legislation in order to streamline procedures for investors.

The PM also welcomed Oman‘s economic and commercial activities at the Damascus International Fair, an event which aims to form effective economic cooperation with various countries and participating companies.

For his part, Kiyoumi stressed the importance of cooperation between the commerce and industry chambers in Syria and Oman to develop a mechanism for future cooperation, including investments in oil, tourism and real estate fields.

In the same context, Economy Minister Mohamad Samer Khalil met with the visiting Omani delegation to discuss investment opportunities in Syria during the upcoming stage.
