Damascus, Syria, Nov. 28, 1996 – Cautious Reforms For Syria’s Economy

Syrian coins

In November 1996, I visited Syria and did this piece on the government’s attempts to kickstart its struggling economy. One of the people I interviewed was Syrian MP and businessman Riad Seif, an outspoken advocate of democracy who was subsequently imprisoned by the Assad government. He has now become a leading member of the opposition.
