Syria Needs To Spend $1.5 Bn/Year On Electricity, $100 Bn To Create Jobs By 2010: Demand for electric power in Syria is expected to grow from 22 billion kilowatt hours in 1999 to 73 billion in 2020, requiring investments in new generating plants averaging $1.5 billion per annum over the next 20 years, according to the country's ministry of electricity.
Most of the expansion in this sector will involve gas-fired power plants. About 3,000 MW of new power generating capacity is expected to be installed from 2004 to 2010.
Syria's population will increase by nearly 50% in the next ten years. The country will need $100 billion to create jobs for the millions of new people entering the work force.

Also affiliated with the university are seven intermediate institutes and a School of Nursing. .

Syria suffers from a serious unemployment problem which could soon become explosive if the neighbouring Lebanese economy fails to take off as promised recently by Beirut's billionaire Prime Minister Rafic Hariri. Before Hariri stepped down as premier in late autumn of 1998, there used to be almost 1.5m Syrians working in Lebanon - mainly in the construction sector. In late 1998, after Hariri was replaced by Dr. Selim El Hoss under the then emerging presidency of Gen. Emile Lahoud, the Lebanese economy fell into recession and many Syrians lost their jobs in that country. By end-August 2000, there had been less than 800,000 Syrians working in Lebanon.
The government of Prime Minister Mohammed Mustapha Miro recently launched a $1 bn programme aimed at creating 440,000 new jobs. Dr. Dalila said that, provided they get improved incentives, Syrian, Arab and foreign investors would bring in large capital and "investors could realise significant profits under the right conditions". He said there was great potential in Syria's still untapped human and natural resources.
