Doing Business in Syria

UKTI advises companies to exercise great care in pursuing business opportunities in the country, with due regard to EU restrictions (view a copy of the regulation taken from the Official Journal of the European Union), the UK’s export licensing regime (Business Innovation and Skills Export Control Organisation) and the Foreign & Commonwealth Office’s Travel Advice.

Information on the security related risks which companies face when operating overseas is available on the Overseas Business Risk webpage.

The European Union (EU) adopted new restrictive measures against Syria at the end of February 2012.

A notice which outlines a brief summary of these new measures focusing in particular on those administered by the Export Control Organisation is attached.
