BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:30 A.M.) – The Deputy Minister of Public Works and Housing, Mazen Al-Lahham, announced on Sunday that the files of 26 real estate development zones had been prepared for implementation as residential areas at the country level.

During a special interview with the Syrian newspaper Al-Watan, Al-Lahham said: “Concerning the recent visit of the ministerial delegation to Iran, it was agreed during the talks on a final formula for the memorandum of understanding signed between the two countries, and the completion of some points related to it.”

Al-Lahham stressed, “One of the most important points mentioned in the executive program agreed upon is to present the Syrian side with a list of priority projects in implementation, including a project to build 30 thousand housing units in the governorates.”

Al-Lahham indicated that one of the issues agreed upon is to provide the necessary facilities to establish Iranian-Syrian joint governmental companies in the fields of building and construction, roads, bridges and transport infrastructures, studies, consultations and engineering services in accordance with the regulations and laws in force between the two countries.

Al-Lahham indicated that it was agreed to hold meetings between businessmen and Iranian contracting companies willing to work in the field of public works and housing in Syria.

Now that’s some bs alright. The real estate sector in Iran has been in disarray ever since the corrupt pyramidal “Mehr” Housing scheme undertaken by Ahmadinejad and his mafia, and there are a growing number of “bachehd cartoni” which means “children in cardboard boxes” , sleeping in the open… now they’re getting busy building stuff in a foreign country that is direly needed at home… I’m getting tired from politicians all around the globe caring more about what happens thousands of miles away from their borders while their own country could take a break being cared for a bit first…

About half of the country’s real estate has been demolished…
This just means there is housing needs for 9 millions Syrians. Syria should better team with Israel for the exploitation of the Levantine gas basin, it’d provide guarantees for the IMF once the gas flows.
The IMF alone can provide the needed money to rebuild, no other institution being able to put about half a trillion $ on a table.
30,000 housing is equivalent to nothing in such a case.
