In the meeting, the Syrian Minister of Economy stressed the importance of the two countries' relations and presented the latest laws in Syria, especially the investment law.

The two ministers agreed on the importance of diversifying the economy for economic stability, in addition to medium and small projects, as they constitute the largest percentage of projects operating in the two countries, and are the main support and main driver of the economy. The importance of reviving bilateral cooperation in all economic sectors was also discussed.

The Syrian Minister of Economy congratulated the UAE on the achievement of the Expo 2020 Dubai, especially in light of the challenges of the Corona epidemic.
