During the years of war, Syria lost 60 billion dollars of its industrial infrastructure, which was equivalent to 70% of the country’s industrial capacity. Almost all industrial cities and factories in Syria were destroyed, and more painfully, Syrian industrial machinery was stolen by armed opposition and terrorists and sold to neighboring countries. 


This was while the Syrian industry provided more than 90% of the country’s needs, and in addition, 5 billion in revenue for the government, which was considered the main source of the country’s budget. Until the Syrian crisis, the textile industry of this country had achieved an advanced position in the world and was considered a strong competitor for Turkey, but the black nightmare of the war destroyed all these assets. 

However, Syrian industrialists in the post-war period hope to be able to move the wheels of this country’s industry once again. In this context, the owner of a machinery factory, “Tissir Darkelt”, told the reporter of Tasnim News Agency in Damascus: Syrian industry is like a superhero. I know that during the war, economic sanctions and shortages showed resistance again. Throughout history, the Syrian people have proven that they can overcome all difficulties. If a moment of despair entered our hearts, we would still leave our country. Despite the difficulties we face, we are never disappointed.
