Damascus, SANA – A total of SYP 42 billion are the value of contracted housing projects due for implementation by the General Housing Establishment to date.
Up to 30,722 apartments are planned within the projects, which will be spread across the provinces, according to a source at the Establishment.

The value of contracted housing projects in 2014 amounted to SYP 6.7 billion, with a total number of apartments set at 2,580. Those were planned in the provinces of Damascus Countryside, Tartous and Lattakia.
