NORTH AND EAST SYRIA — Under the slogan ‘From Ecological Industry towards Self-sufficiency’, the Economy and Agriculture Authority of Gozarto (Jazira) Region of North and East Syria held its second industrial exhibition for local products in Hasakah Canton.
The three-day exhibition aimed to encouraging local industry and support industrialists and locally made products.
About 60 industrial products from local industries were exhibited at reduced prices compared to those imported from elsewhere.
After the exhibition ended, a meeting was held with participating owners of factories and companies to discuss the positives and negatives of the exhibition. Problems facing factories in the Region were also discussed, including: the high prices of raw materials, merchants importing lower quality products at lower prices, ignoring local production, smuggling raw materials for plastic outside North and East Syria, and the difficulty of obtaining licenses for their factories.
The factory owners expressed their satisfaction with the exhibition, which represents a way to promote their companies, as well as contribute to achieving self-sufficiency and providing high quality products to the local markets.
