    The Russian business companies will enjoy favorable conditions during Damascus International Fair, Syrian Minister of Economy and Foreign Trade Samir Khalil told Sputnik.

    DAMASCUS (Sputnik) – The Russian companies, which will participate in the 59th Damascus International Fair scheduled for August, will enjoy favorable conditions, Syrian Minister of Economy and Foreign Trade Samir Khalil told Sputnik.

    "The Russian participants of the 59th Damascus International Fair will be provided with favorable conditions. The conditions for western companies will significantly differ," Khalil said.

    The minister pointed out that some European countries started to show interest for Syria after the Syrian army supported by Russia and Iran carried out a number of successful operations against terrorists.

    "There is a decision to provide financial support for all transport operations on the export of Syrian goods that will be carried out under the contracts signed during the fair. A total of 50 percent of expenses on air transportation and 100 percent of expenses on sea and land transportation will be reimbursed," Khalil added.

    According to Syrian media, the Damascus International Fair had been held since 1954 until 2011, when the civil conflict erupted in the country.
