Syria's economic sectors continue to suffer heavy losses as a result of the ongoing war in Syria for seven years till now, and the ministers of Assad government are still coming out from time to time to announce the losses of their ministries and the sectors they manage.
The minister of transport in the government of Assad "Ali Hammoud" said that the losses of the transport sector in Syria amounted to 4567 million dollars since the beginning of the war so far and the income of the sector went back by more than 90% during the previous six years, Minister of Oil and Mineral Resources "Ali Ghanem" announced that the losses of the Syrian energy sector reached $ 68 billion!
The greater the losses of Syrian sectors, the greater the profits of Russian companies. Assad's government has recently opened the door to Russian companies to engage strongly in the reconstruction of the Syrian affected sectors. This is reflected recently by the organizing of Assad government for the International Conference of Industrialists and Russian Businessmen, and inviting them to expand their cooperation with the Assad government.
In a news broadcast by SANA at 17-8-2017, the ministry of transport also received a delegation of Russian industrialists and businessmen to expand cooperation in various sectors of maritime, air and land transport.
It is worth mentioning that the Russian energy companies won the right to prospect for natural gas in the Syrian Desert, in addition to their previously signed contracts with Assad government to explore the sources of energy in the Syrian coast.
