The Syrian housing minister also said he believed that the plants should be located in industrial towns across the country. Precise locations will be announced after Iran puts forward its requirements concerning the necessary infrastructure.

The Syrian government is currently focused on rebuilding the country and creating favorable conditions for refugee repatriation, namely by ensuring the provision of educational and medical services and repairing the destroyed infrastructure.
