Assad's Commerce Federation seeks businessmen return to boost economy
(Eqtsad)- The Syrian Federation of Commerce Chambers said Thursday that a work team was formed to contact fleeing businessmen and investors during the eight-year-old war to urge them to come back and invest again in Syrian to boost the the post-war economy.

Experts voiced concern over such a call by the pro-regime federation as no guarantees for free trade in Syria amid the conflict of interest between Russia and Iran who support Bashar al-Assad and revived his regime again.  

The team includes Abdul Rahim Rahal, Dr. Abdel Nasser Sheikh Fattouh, Faisal Saif, Randa al-Ajili, Mazin Knama, Anas Joud, and Ruba Abboud. 

The federation asked the team to draw the 'comeback' strategy within 3 days.

The Syrian Prime Minister, Emad Khamis, demanded the traders and industrialists who met two weeks ago to put their money in the banks of Syria, and urged them to pay the debt owed to the country, which contributed in the wealth they made.

Syria's war has killed more than 560,000 people and displaced millions since it started in 2011 with a brutal crackdown on anti-regime protests.
