"The plant's construction began about two years ago. A month ago, the works were completed and currently we are proceeding with production," Makhlouf said.
"We are producing 48,000 cans and 18,000 one-liter and two-liter bottles with beverages. The plant's production is currently intended only for Syrian market, but it is planned to export it abroad," Makhlouf said.
Syria has been in a state of conflict since 2011, with the government forces of President Bashar Assad fighting against numerous opposition groups and terrorist organizations. As the Syrian government has regained control over most of the country's territories that were seized by terrorists, the country's authorities proceeded with the economy's recovery and infrastructure reconstruction.
