The Syrian tourism minister, Bishr Yazigi has said the government hopes to attract foreign investment in tourism, despite a three-year civil war that has killed more than 150,000 people and devastated many historic sites, Reuters has reported. “The situation in Syria isn’t as the world imagines,” said Yazigi. “There are areas that are 100% secure,” he said. “In the coming period there will be legislation that will greatly ease investment, which will be attractive to investors around the world.”
