Syrian state companies have also issued tenders open exclusively to Iranian companies, according to the economic magazine Syria Report.Just last month, Tehran and Damascus reached a deal for Iran to rehabilitate Syria's defense industry. Companies from 25 countries, as well as officials from another 23, are taking part in the fair, Syrian state media said. Around 50 Russian firms are being represented, and Iran has made an equally strong showing.
