Soaring global prices have hit Syria hard given its reliance on imported food and fuel. We believe GDP will recover to growth of 3% in 2023 and 6% in 2024 as reconstruction begins via reproachment with Arab states, Russian investment, and participation in China’s Belt and Road initiative. However, lack of government revenue and access to financing will severely restrict the pace and scale of recovery.
