Syrian governorates witness tourism festivals again

The tourism festivals have kicked off again in some Syrian governorates after stopping for many years because of the war. This summer has witnessed the organization of a large number of festivals since 2012.

These festivals are working to convey a message represented in casting light on restoring normal life to many areas and governorates and attracting citizens to attend the festivals as well as reactivating the economic and social life in these areas.

Before organizing more festivals, the Ministry of Tourism will cooperate with the governorates and administrative units to review results of the festivals organized in the liberated areas which still need large sums of money for rehabilitation. The festivals will have negative impact on the locals of those areas if they were held at the expense of the reform processes and citizens’ services.

The singing festivals witness a larger audience than the cultural and social ones which are held currently.
