Al-Hamwi participated in the 59th edition of Damascus International Fair and was chosen by the Small and Medium Projects Development Agency to take part in “Made in Syria” Expo organized by the Syrian Exporters’ Union in Baghdad.
He hailed the Agency’s efforts to spread the culture of entrepreneurship and provide young entrepreneurs with necessary consultation, advice and training to be creative.
