The first project is the Shaheen hotel complex, in Tartous province, which was built during the years of war at a cost of 100 billion pounds, equivalent to 40 million dollars, Tourism Minister Mohammed Rami Martini said.

The second project, according to the official, is the al-Karnak tourist complex, which consists of cabins, sports fields, restaurants and beaches.

The third project is Tourist hotel in the central city of Homs. It underwent a reconstruction process due to the damages caused by terrorist attacks.

According to recent data, the Ministry of Tourism granted licenses for the restoration and construction of some 115 facilities.

In 2010, the year before the war broke out, the country received 8.5 million holidaymakers, and the sector’s revenues accounted for 9 percent of the Gross Domestic Product, but tourist arrivals dropped 98 percent later.
