Russia to Start Producing Construction Materials and Cars in Syria

On September 21st, the Russian Minister of Trade and Industry Denis Manturov announced the country’s plans to start production of construction materials and cars in Syria, which are to be exported to third countries.

As cited by TASS during a press conference following the meeting of the Russian-Chinese subcommittee for cooperation in the field of industry, Manturov said that the countries are currently discussing the option of Russian production of construction materials and cars in Syria.

“We have been cooperating with Syria for a long time to supply road construction equipment, construction materials, and to organize the production there,” Manturov said.

The Trade and Industry Minister did not specify what companies will be established, who will be their key participants, under what brand will the products be produced. He did, however, confirm that it will be within the transport and energy construction industry, as well as the automotive one.

“What will come first, in view of restoration will be construction materials. The organization of production there is for the production of construction materials, which are to be used in the local market,” according to Manturov, as cited by RIA Novosti.

Manturov also expressed hope that the construction materials may be delivered beyond the Syrian market, to other countries in the region.

“If these products are to be competitive, they will have to be delivered to neighboring countries from the Syrian establishment,” the Minister said.

Russia is already looking into building its own production bases in Syria. In February, the vice-president of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Vladimir Padalko, claimed that Russian companies are discussing projects for the construction of cars and agricultural machinery in Syria.

He also specified that large automotive manufacturers will most likely not enter the country, their dealers will. He also announced that one Russian company has initiated negotiations for the construction of more than a dozen establishments for the production of reinforced concrete products.

Belarus has also announced plans to establish a car manufacturing base in Syria. Mid-January 2018, representatives of the Belarusian company MAZ held the relevant negotiations in the Syrian Ministry of Industry.

In addition to announcement regarding Syria, Manturov also spoke about the development of industry in Russia and China. According to him, Russian and Chinese industrial progress and cooperation draw dissatisfaction from the Western Countries.

“You can see for yourself the difficult geopolitical and economic situation in which our countries are. It is chiefly due to the fact that we produce large volumes of competitive products – it concerns iron and steel industry and nonferrous industry, in particular aluminum,” Manturov said at the press conference.

“The stronger the Chinese and Russian industries become, the more dissatisfaction it draws from our Western colleagues, in particular the US,” he stated.

“However, it only motivates us all the more to cooperate in the areas we discussed today. These are, in particular, metallurgy industry, aluminum, radio-electronic industry, pharmaceutics, automobile industry and new groundbreaking spheres,” Manturov reported.

“Pressure, sanctions and certain bans by the Western countries and the US push us once again toward cooperation and a search for joint solutions and products,” the Russian industry and trade minister concluded.

The announcement of industrial establishments in Syria follows the announcement of Russia’s Export Development Plan on September 12th. Denis Manturov said that the plan envisioned the launching of 4 industrial zones abroad, all of which are to be operational within 6 years.

This is in addition to the one already functioning in Egypt.

“We are developing a program for the creation of industrial zones abroad. We should establish at least four zones in six years. We have one in Egypt, and we must form them in Latin America too – it could be Mexico, Uruguay or Paraguay, in Southeast Asia – Vietnam, Malaysia or Indonesia – and in eastern or western Africa. We will analyze where it will be advantageous,” the minister said.

  1. Geeeee! I Wonder if those CARS Putin will HELP Syria to make will run on FREE ENERGY….Witch Informed Be-Ings ALREADY Know Russia KNOWS exist…Along with their “Buddy’s” the BRICS Alliance….AND of Course the USA FASCIST Friends IN THE “CORPORATE USA”>
    GOSH!…Did I just “let-the-cat-out-the-bag” with this???
    Geeeeeeee! I can’t hardly wait to SEE this happens!

      1. I guess FREE Energy does NOT appeal to You???
        ALL Energies are supposed to be FREE, or do you like being ENSLAVED to you Government?

      2. The Russians sell oil and gas. What makes you think they’re going to provide free energy. That’s been locked up by the Rockerfeller/Rothschild’s since Tesla’s time!

  2. Absolutely brilliant. Go Russia. Go Syria. Chop the west out of the international market. You have Africa, and Asia, and hard-core Russian industrial engineering that will just work and work in those harsher environments.

  3. is rich, somebody please show it to Pat who eagerly awaits Adelson-Trump casinos as the 1st order of business in all those attacked countries. He can no doubt provide a lengthy list of casinos constructed in the aftermath of invasions of Iraq, Sudan, Libya, Afghanistan, Somalia, Yemen and now, Syria.

  4. Kenneth is correct, for while realpolitik recognises that the Russians do indeed sell oil and gas, this market was monopolised long ago by oligarchic forces [see Ida Tarbell, “The Seven Sisters” ], and has been held captive ever since, to the detriment of humanity and nature.

    For Russia to be cheered-on, like a college football team, in its endeavours to carve-out a piece of the international hydro-carbon scam is no badge of honour. Rather it is a clear sign that Russia’s intentions are no different than their western counterparts.

    The fact that since at least 1973 the internal combustion engine [ICE] was capable of being mass-produced to operate on hydrogen bears witness to the fakery involved in constricting oil and gas resources to markets, simply to inflate their price.

    Governments are addicted to tax on such resources, adding to this artificial inflationary manipulation to our so-called “global economy”, sometimes even under the guise of “environmentalism”.

    Free energy? Yes. Physics law’s define energy as being, essentially, indestructible, transferable and therefore eminently re-usable. So those in possession of destructive hydrocarbon assets will work with anyone willing to help them keep the “user pays” energy paradigm alive, including mother Russia.

    While consumers are made to pay for destructive [explosive] forms of polluted energy over and over again, science has not truly and honestly accepted Tesla [and his like-minded contemporaries and predecessors] as a result of the oil and gas monopolies influencing the outcomes and history of our world. Electricity, magnetism and non-destructive energy technologies are noticeable by their absence from this conversation.

    1. CORRECTO-MUDO Benard!!! Since the Vatican “Corporate Controlled” Bankoholics couldn’t METER the FREE Energy source for PROFIT, they SHUT Down Tesla’s operation, then BROKE the man…and the so-called “BRICS Alliance” is “On-Board” for the SAME reasons…ABSOLUTE ENERGY CONTROL!
