The head of the Industry and Trade Ministry of Russia, Denis Manturov, has unveiled plans of the Russian government to launch the production of construction materials on the Syrian territory.
According to the minister, the products will be intended for the domestic construction market in Syria.
“What will be first needed for restoration is building materials. Therefore, the production should be set up there”, Manturov explained.
The head of the Ministry has reminded that Russia and Syria have been cooperating for a long time in the field of supply of road construction equipment to this Middle Eastern country.
As it was reported earlier, Russian military came up with an idea to apply the historical experience of the restoration of the post-war Soviet Union to the rebuilding of Syria after the devastating war on its territory is over. According to the head of the Russian National Center for Defense, Mikhail Mizintsev, after 1945, Russia was able to solve a huge amount of tasks in the shortest possible time.
Experts believe that an appeal to Soviet history can indeed be helpful for Damascus, however, such factors as differences in geography, climate, and culture should be taken into account.
