Visitors of the Syrian pavilion hailed the second successive participation for Syria in this international charity activity.
They expressed appreciation for watching the exhibited Syrian products which affirm the recovery of the Syrian society in spite of all the harsh circumstances due to the terrorist war waged against Syria.
Syria’s Permanent Representative to the UN in Geneva, Ambassador Hussam Eddin Ala, for his part, said that Syria’s participation constituted an opportunity for showcasing the traditional industries which embody the cultural and human heritage of Syria.
