He said backing the Syrian army in its fight against terrorism and assisting martyrs families are among top priorities of the government's plan.
Khamis urged journalists to focus on the difficult economic situation in the country and to tell citizens the truth about the horrible impacts of the terrorist groups' crimes against the country's economy, including depriving Syria from the revenues of oil and gas, thereby transforming Syria from an oil producing country to an oil importing country which added more suffering to the citizens because of the absence of oil derivatives from the market.
He vowed government procedures to achieve revenues that will be used in reactivating the process of agricultural and industrial production.
He asserted the importance of small and micro-sized projects in supporting national economy and boosting the production process in general.
"The government has earmarked some 500 million Syrian pounds to support "Mashrou'i" (My Project) program and to carry out small enterprises with the purpose of alleviating citizens' burdens and develop rural areas, the prime minister said.
