The contract is a tourist complex that includes recreational and commercial events, apartments, and hotel rooms. It will contribute to achieving high revenue for the Lattakia City Council and securing employment opportunities.
The project is also a strategic project that has been reactivated by the Decision of the Supreme Tourism Council.
The agency explained that the Jules Jammal site was invested in accordance with the investment system “B.O.T” for 45 years and the duration of the implementation of the contract is 6 years from the date of signing.
The Syrian Minister of Tourism said that the Russian company provided all the facilities to make the signing of the contract, which includes percentages of income for the benefit of the Lattakia City Council.
He added that the contract will contribute to the development of tourism from Russia into Syria, especially with the presence of several Russian companies investing in the Syrian tourism sector.
Development of tourism between the two countries
The general manager of Sinara Int said that most countries in the world have closed their doors to Russian tourists, while Syria is the only one still opening its doors to them.
He added that the contract was to confirm the development of tourism work between the two sides and that the project is important to us [the Russians], the Syrian economy, and the reconstruction.
