Among the countries of the Middle East, Syria ranks relatively high in the ranking of the housing index with houses with an average price of 1,800 dollars per square meter in the city center and with houses with an average price of 923 dollars per square meter around the city. The devaluation of the Syrian lira against the dollar and cheap wages in this country have made buying a house a dream for young people. Over the past years, dozens of residential buildings in Aleppo have collapsed due to cracking as a result of heavy Russian airstrikes that the city has been subjected to, especially with highly destructive bombs. Currently, a number of Iranian companies are engaged in construction in Syria as contractors.
Considering the official beginning of the reconstruction period in this country, international experts expect that in addition to the powerful actors in the Syrian arena, even the countries that support the war in Syria will also join the reconstruction investors in Syria. This issue can be concluded from the profitable investment of Qataris in Syria and the beginning of consultations for the opening of the UAE consulate in Damascus.
Reconstruction of the war-torn areas of Syria has provided an opportunity for engineers and construction industry activists. The Syrian Ministry of Public Services and Housing supervises the planning, housing and public services sectors in this country through the central administration and organizations affiliated to this ministry. Among the achievements of the Syrian Ministry of Public Services and Housing in the past year is the follow-up of planning for the reconstruction of the Syrian countryside, including Ain al-Fijeh, Basimah, Deir Moqran, etc.
