According to Fouad Laham, National Director of the Industrial Modernization and Development program, the program will enter its second phase by 2010 as; most of the goals which were set at the program's launching in May 2007 will have been achieved.

The program, which sought to modernize 36 textile companies, from both private and public sectors, has realized material and non-material achievements. On the non-material level, the program has created a new concept for the government, private sector and the partners on working to modernize textile industries not just theoretically, but in practice.

Giving details, Laham said that at the functional level the program's management has worked on building consulting capabilities in the field of industrial modernization through carrying out training courses for 55 consultants, 20 of whom used their expert knowledge in preparing diagnostic studies and development plans and offering technical aid.

While on the practical level, the program has been able to modernize and update 36 companies with the help of national and foreign expertise. 15 other companies also received help to get acquainted with the international certificates they need through their work in the market and the investment field.

An independent assessment mission which visited and evaluated 18 companies indicated that, the program received positive evaluation by 92 percent for performance and that the program has achieved 75 percent of its goals, which has encouraged the mission to recommend a second phase the program is supposed to enter by the beginning of 2010.

The success achieved by the program is the outcome of cooperation between Syrian Ministry of Industry, the Italian government and UNIDO. The Italian government has offered a loan of 20 million euros to finance the second phase of the program which will center on developing new production lines and the machines of the textile companies.
