The monthly “Made in Syria” shopping festival kicked off Wednesday evening at the Tartous sports hall, with the participation of 110 major national and industrial companies.
The festival, organized by the Chamber of Industry in Damascus and its countryside, aims at providing a wide range of food, clothes, plastic products, detergents, stationery and cosmetics for residents.
Tartous Governor Safwan Abu Saada underlined the importance of the event in alleviating the burdens of Syrian citizens through supplying high quality products at reasonable prices.
