Rebuilding Europe after Second World War necessitated a Marshall plan introduced by American minister of foreign affairs George Marshall and rebuilding Syria after the Arab Spring and the destruction caused by the war and ISIS, necessitates as well a Marshall plan to establish a new basis for the economy as well as the policy of the country. It aims at bringing back millions of Syrian migrants and refugees To their homeland.
The first step of this project has been taken by the entrepreneur and the founder of ” Syria for all ” Ngo Dr Mohammed Izzat Khatab, who is a Syrian French Billionnaire who lives in Paris since 2011 and who has worked on this project with the help of a team of experts in the French presidential palace who gives so much weight to rebuilding Syria after the war.khatab ‘s plan is based on a philosophy introduced by “Syria for all” organisation which aims at “achieving peace and coexistence between the different religious groups of the Syrian society by respecting each other ” and building a new economy by bringing back the Syrian diaspora. This plan is introduced since 2012 together with “Syria for all ” Ngo which worked on helping refugees in Europe. Khatab dreams of rebuilding his country after the war and wants to transform his Ngo into a political movement. He can rely on the support of so many political and business leaders in Europe and in the world mainly the French president Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel as well as decision makers in Pekin and Moscow. He is known for his human qualities, commitment and leadership in terms of business and diplomacy.
A five- year plan:
Khatab ‘s plan (2017-2022) is put into practise under the supervision of the secretary general of “Syria for all “with the help of a team of experts. It is included within the objectives of Steffan De Mistura, The UN special envoy for the Syria crisis by meeting the urgent needs of Syria in the five coming years. “Syria for all “secretary general wants to organise conferences and debates between the different religious and political groups of Syria to discuss the different steps of the plan in order to figure out a “map to build a new Syria “and collaborate with the UN department as well as organise new elections under the supervision of the UN, in which Syrians inside and outside Syria have the final Word.khatab hopes to attract a maximum of Syrians in his project To rebuild Syria without the help of foreign investment. This plan aims also at giving Syrians who suffered from the war loans without interests by setting up a national bank To rebuild houses ,airports institutions and improving the transport in general.
In order to guarantee international support, Khatab visited most of the European and Asian Capital cities and was welcomed by decision-makers in East and west who hope to work with him for a new Syria full of tolerance and Justice. However, the political scene of the country after the transitional period is left to the new elected president and his team and Khatab will probably be part of it.
