Damascus, (SANA)- Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs Abdullah al-Dardari stressed on Thursday the government's support to the businessmen councils for their role in promoting relations and boosting trade exchange with different countries of the world. Al-Dardari's remarks came in a speech at the launching of the Syrian-Dutch Businessmen Council in Damascus. Al-Dardari expressed hope that the council will contribute to boosting business performance and opening new prospects for economic cooperation between Syria and Netherlands. Ambassador of Netherlands in Damascus Dolf Hogewoning said the council is an opportunity to work for increasing trade exchange with Netherlands which comes fifth among the European countries in trade volume with Syria. Chairman of the Arab-Dutch Chamber of Commerce Salim Rabbani said that the council will focus on setting up plans and goals and sorting out the sectors which need development for the coming stage. He added that the council also aims to introduce Dutch businessmen to the investment resources and opportunities available in Syria. Chief Executive of the Syrian-Dutch Businessmen Council Samer al-Hamou said in a statement to SANA that the council, which includes 50 companies from both sides specialized in the agricultural, industrial, trade and tourist fields, is seeking to set up a regulatory structure and a future work mechanism to help develop bilateral relations and increase trade exchange between the two countries.
