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.
