In the past week, there have been two high-level meetings between Syrian and Jordanian officials in what seems to be part of a wider trend in the Arab region to re-engage Damascus.


The Autonomous Administration in North and East Syria (AANES) has increased the monthly salaries of doctors, dentists, and pharmacists who work in its medical centres by 30 percent.


The Syrian government has reported Emirati and Chinese interest in its project to incentivise investments in wind and solar energy as it seeks to increase the share of renewable energy sources in its energy mix in the long term, although funding remains a challenge. 


For the first time in months, construction work is set to start on a new real estate project in Marota City.


Profits of Syria’s state-owned hotels have increased during the first half of this year due to the depreciation of the national currency. The government has continued to develop its domestic tourism as it searches for ways to replenish its depleted state coffers with foreign currency and to encourage investment.
