The Syrian regime government announced on January 11 the granting of a financial advance of 40 billion Syrian pounds to the General Organization for Poultry to secure the necessities of the breeding process.

As reported by the state-run Al-Thawra newspaper, the grant is intended to secure the needs and requirements of the poultry sector, provide feedstock to alleviate the effects of price fluctuations and prevent shortages of the material.

It was previously announced by the General Organization for Poultry that it had received a financial advance of eight billion Syrian pounds to secure production requirements.

The areas under regime control are witnessing a deterioration in the economic and living conditions, which has negatively affected all aspects of life.

The general level of prices is witnessing repeated increases affecting a range of essential food and material products, making it increasingly difficult for the population to make purchases.
