Syria To Invest In Russia And China's Plants

Syria was likely to bring in $6 billion in private investment this year

Syria has signed a $1.2 billion refinery deal with China and is in talks with Russia about a $2.4 billion plant, Syria's deputy prime minister said on Thursday, as money flows in despite a U.N. assassination probe.

Syria was likely to bring in $6 billion in private investment this year, with foreign direct investment accounting for 30 percent of that, deputy Prime Minister Abdullah al-Dardari told reporters during a visit to London.
