Syria has wrapped up a national economic dialogue, with hundreds of representatives offering a number of suggestions to solve problems and push forward reforms in the country’s economy.

The three-day National Forum for Economic Dialogue, which was attended by some 300 figures representing all areas of the Syrian society, came up with suggestions such as fighting the rampant corruption in some state departments and developing industrial and agricultural projects to generate job opportunities.

The dialogue held in the capital Damascus aimed to enhance discussions on national issues on the basis of partnership and collective responsibility and to crystallize a common vision for economic and social reforms.

Speaking at the opening session on Sunday, Syrian Prime Minister Adel Safar said the government was determined to go on with reforms, but warned against the danger of foreign challenges aimed, he said, at "undermining Syrian economic bases. "
