Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov announced a new draft agreement between Syria and Russia

which includes more than 40 new projects in the field of energy sector reconstruction, a number of hydroelectric power stations, and the extraction of oil from the sea.
Borisov’s words came during a press conference with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Walid al-Muallem, following the arrival of the Russian delegation to Damascus today, according to what SANA reported.
The Russian Deputy Prime Minister added that Syria is subjected to economic blockade and sanctions, including the Caesar Act, stressing work to violate the blockade imposed by the US administration on Syria.

Borisov pointed out that the joint governmental committee with Syria has achieved "important achievements" at the level of developing "Tartous port" and the phosphate sector, indicating that the Corona pandemic led to a global economic crisis that affected the Syrian phosphate demand.
Buthaina Shaaban, the political and media advisor in the Presidency of the Syrian Arab Republic, confirmed at the end of 2019 that Syria had begun to explore for oil in cooperation with Russian companies, and on the other hand, she denied the impact of the Caesar or Caesar Act on the Syrian economy.
The Syrian People’s Council recently approved 3 contracts signed between the “Ministry of Oil and Mineral Resources” and the Russian “Mercury” and “Villada” companies, to explore for oil in several areas within Syria.

In 2013, the "Ministry of Oil and Mineral Resources" concluded a marine Amrit contract with the Russian "Seiznefta Gas East Med" company, to explore for oil and gas in the Syrian territorial waters.
The Russian "Stroy Trans Gas Company" is currently investing the factories of the "General Fertilizer Company" in Homs for a period of 40 years, in addition to the port of Tartous for a period of 49 years, and the phosphate ores from the eastern mines of Palmyra, according to contracts recently ratified by the concerned authorities. On December 25, 2019, the Syrian-Russian Permanent Joint Committee for Trade, Economic, Technical and Scientific Cooperation concluded, during its 12th meeting in Moscow, the final protocol of the meeting, and an agreement for cooperation in the field of customs facilities between the two countries.
Before that, the Syrian-Russian Joint Committee concluded the December 2018 meeting after identifying new areas of cooperation, and Russian companies at that time agreed to implement about 30 projects in Syria, most of them industrial, to be implemented between 2019 and 2021.

Building materials prices in Syria: a ton of iron arrives a million and a half pounds, and a ton of cement is 120,000.

Prices of building materials in Syria A ton of iron arrives to a million and a half Syrian pounds, and a ton of cement is 120,000.
The price of a ton of brominated iron jumped to its highest price in Syria for more than 10 years, when the price touched the levels of one million five hundred thousand pounds, while the price of a ton of cement ranged between 100 and 120 thousand SP on the black market affected by a price increase in government institutions that raised Its price ranges from 46 thousand to 70 thousand.
The Director General of the Cement Corporation, Eng. Mohamed Wanous, explained the main reason for raising the price of cement is the increase in the prices of production requirements of raw materials and power carriers (fuel) and the prices of replacement parts and packaging materials (polypropylene bags) linked to the exchange rate, which in turn led to an increase in production costs in Affiliated companies of the corporation.
Pointing out that there are no stores of cement material in the warehouses of the corporation's subsidiary companies, as this material is disposed of by Omran Corporation by drawing its share of that material, and the remaining 25% is discharged by the companies through accreditors that the corporation has already concluded with them Fundamental contracts and they extract material on a daily basis.
He explained that the price of a bag of cement was raised by 1,200 pounds after a careful financial study of the costs of the product and that it is a natural and reasonable increase compared to the price of the material in the private sector and has nothing to do with fighting the black market, but rather as a result of the high costs of the product,
Also that the fight against the black market is the responsibility of the competent supervisory authorities. As for the responsibility of the institution and its companies, it is confined to the campus of those companies only and not outside them.
As for iron prices, the price of a ton of brominated iron for construction work has reached one million and 475 thousand pounds, which is the highest price for it in more than 10 years, according to some companies that sell building materials, which the "Business 2" website reviewed.
As for clinker, which is a raw material in the cement industry, News confirmed that there are stocks of this substance in companies, especially since this stock is strategic.
In turn, the assistant director of Mr.Omran Suhail Asamandar explained that the Foundation demanded, through several official books, to the General Cement Corporation, to supply it with the full quantity and did not receive a response, and that if Omran had been given full quantities, the situation would have been different and the citizen would have obtained the material at the officially announced price and he would not have had to buy it on the black market.

What is the cost of repairing a house that does not exceed 70 meters today?

The cost of repairing a house not exceeding 70 meters is 15 million today, while equipping a two-room house by installing two wood doors, aluminum doors, windows and 3 water mixers, exceeds two million pounds without installing floors, paint and any accessories?!

As the prices of building materials increased by more than 200%, and the argument on the lips of merchants in the event of a rise is the price of the dollar, and there was no material left to enter the building except for a prolonged rise, as the price of a meter of ceramic reached 7 thousand pounds, while its price did not exceed 2000 pounds, and the price increased A cement bag within 3 months reached 7 thousand pounds, while it did not exceed 2,400 pounds, and the price of the tiles became 3 thousand pounds while it did not exceed 1200 pounds, not to mention that a centimeter of stone became 3 thousand pounds while its price was 1200 pounds, while the price of a kilogram of iron reached 3 thousand pounds, while It did not exceed 800 pounds, and the cost of civilizations that included (sand and gravel) increased by 50%, so the price per square meter exceeded 10,000 pounds, while it was 5,000 pounds.

Industrialist Mr.Majd Shamshian confirmed to Tishreen newspaper that the price of iron and cement in Syria is 60% more expensive than it is in all countries of the world, for example, a ton of iron in Egypt is 430 thousand, while in Syria it exceeded 630 thousand, and there is no justification for raising prices to that degree, so most factories get The raw material in the manufacture of iron (scrap) free of remnants of the effects of war, and despite that they sell and price on dollars, indicating that if the import of raw materials in construction was permitted, prices would automatically drop, but all decisions come against the citizen's interest.

Mr.Shamshian confirmed that the cost of a meter of construction currently exceeds 220 thousand pounds, not to mention the price of the land, and added: It is true that real estate prices are affected by the high prices of building materials, but like any other commodity it is affected by supply and demand, indicating that Damascus is more expensive than all countries in the world in real estate prices .

The industrialist Muhammad Al-Saeed saw that the high price of real estate is not in construction materials but in cladding materials, for example, the price of a meter of granite is 30 thousand, while it did not exceed 10 thousand pounds, indicating that after the decision of the Ministry of Trade, the price of a bag of cement rose from 5 thousand to 6 thousand pounds However, in his opinion, cement is only a small percentage in construction. The problem with all building materials, for example, an ordinary aluminum meter now costs 30 thousand pounds, while its composition did not exceed 7 thousand pounds.

Al-Saeed confirmed that the cost of cladding at least one meter has become more than 100 thousand pounds if the cladding is normal, there are apartments of 200 meters whose cost exceeds 100 million pounds, indicating that it is true that there are national factories for iron and cement and others, but all the raw materials are imported, so their pricing is based on the price Exchange, but the problem is that the prices are not reduced after the dollar’s decline, as there is monopoly and exploitation by the owners of some factories.
Researcher in real estate economics, Dr. Ammar Youssef emphasized that the main criterion for the increase in real estate prices is the increase in demand for supply and the fluctuation of the exchange rate, especially with the transformation of the property from being an investment tool to a credit method like gold completely through which the citizen maintains the value of the currency he possesses, not to mention that the price of the property is affected by the location The location of the property is a real estate made of the same construction and cladding, the price of which varies between being in the countryside or in the city, and the increase sometimes reaches 100 times.

Dr.Youssef emphasized that there are speculators in the price of real estate who could take advantage of the recent cement hike decision recently issued by the Ministry of Internal Trade and take it as an excuse to raise the real estate price.

Dr.Youssef did not rule out a series of successive rises in the prices of different materials, especially locally manufactured materials by the state, such as smoke, as he sees. The matter will not depend on cement prices only, and the reason, in his opinion, is due to the fluctuation of the exchange rate and the state’s pricing on old exchange rates that it did not update despite the large increase in The exchange rate on the ground.

And despite the recent big increase approved by the Ministry of Internal Trade on cement prices, Mr.Yusef emphasized that this increase will not affect real estate prices except by 1 per thousand, meaning that the increase as a result of raising cement does not exceed 150 thousand pounds in relation to the cost of building from cement, indicating that the justification The only government to increase cement prices is inflation and the increase in the exchange rate, in addition to the financing problems that occur as a result of the fluctuation of the exchange rate, stressing that the government has become completely like a merchant, concerned with profit in the first place.
