He said that, at the workshop, they talked about various means for upgrading the Syrian textile industry, and about making its products more competitive so that they meet world quality standards and prices.

Sylvie Sturel, Economic Advisor at the French Embassy, highlighted the significance of this workshop, which came as a part of the agenda of a recent deal entered into between the Ministries of Industries of France and Syria. The deal was mainly intended at exchanging the know-how and getting accustomed with the latest technologies.
