Syria Today

Syria is distinguished for its unique geographical position as the meeting point of Asia, Africa and Europe. Due to this position, Syria was an unceasingly imperative passage on the famous “Silk Road” which connects East Asia with West Europe. This ‏

position made Syria an open country towards its neighbors, Italy`s favorite commercial partner and, a cross, towards Europe as a whole. ‏

As a result of this position, Syria witnessed many consecutive distinct civilizations: Assyria, Byzantine, Roman, Arabic, Islamic, and European, through which there was a mutual influence between them. ‏

Rich and various impacts were left on different spots in Syria, such as, Ogarit, Palmyra, Ibla, Aphamia, Bosra, Aleppo, Homs, and Damascus, all of which made Syria a first class tourist country; added to its moderate climate, clear sky and lovely sunshine. ‏

Syria`s openness to the exterior world and its interaction with other civilizations, cultures and nations created in the Syrian people the love for initiatives, trading, creativeness and inventions. Beside, the Syrian people are remarkably young: ‏

youth rate exceeds half the population due to its continuously increasing rate by 3.3% per annum. Skillful and relatively cheap labor together with the availability of natural resources such as oil, gas, phosphate and fertile lands added to Syria`s aforementioned important comparative advantages which created in it great opportunities for commerce and investment particularly following the Correction Movement led by President Hafez Al Asad in the early seventies when security, political and social stability prevailed due to the adoption of the Principle of the economic and political pluralism.‏
