This web site created as a part of the Impacts of National Technology Environment on Business class. The purpose of this website is to present an IT assessment of Syria by looking at several relevant topics.

The information Technology environment in Syria is a work-in-progress, or even still in the planning stage. It was until the late 1990s when Syria had a reliable telecommunications infrastructure. What is worth mentioning here that the whole telecommunication industry but for the cellular phones is under the government control which justify the inferior quality and service in this industry.

What the Syrian public are counting on is the promises and the personal interest of the new president on investing, developing and spreading out information technology  "..........We also have to stress the importance of spreading education and knowledge and information technology .........."1 Bashar al-Assad: Inaugural Address
