 The years from 2000 to 2007 have indeed been accurate translation –let us say strenuous bids- as to translate the pledge by H.E. President Al-Assad. The pledged was but the common interests of all inside Syria, in the region as well as in the entire world. Thus the implementation depends on all. Unfortunately, and instead of helping such a sincere, charismatic and transparent President, many resorted to every trick and conspiracy as to weaken Syria. Some big powers were involved in hatching a plot following another; the trap set for Syria in Lebanon was but a single one among many others. All bids to end Syria for and in Lebanon were doomed to failure because of the purity and strength of President Al-Assad , who is always ready to fight all the oppressors, colonialists and occupiers.

Actually, they were seven years of continued reforms and buildings, and as announced and declared in President Bashar Al-Assad's Constitutional Oath in 2000. It has also been a continuation of  the Late President Hafez Al-Assad's three decades of building the Syria of today. The Late President Hafez Al-Assad, the builder of modern Syria, outlined before  the People’s Assembly on the occasion of taking the constitutional oath of office for a fifth constitutional term, March 11, 1999, that:

 “We have moved from a position of weakness into a state of power and dignity. Syria has become able to carry out her national role and preserve national independence.”

The past three decades have been filled with successful work and prosperous hope. We face up to difficulties and then we eliminate them. We have achieved tremendous achievements and now we are enjoying them. We have moved from a position of weakness into a state of power and dignity.

Syria has become able to carry out her national role and preserve national

“Syria has built a solid base which has enabled her to move towards a brighter future. Our confidence, from the very beginning, was that caring about people should be to the forefront of our priorities.”

During the last 30 years we have realized great achievements in various walks of life. In the building of a sound economy, services, education, culture, sciences and the arts.

Syria has built a solid base which has enabled her to move towards a brighter future. Our confidence, from the very beginning, was that caring about people should be to the forefront of our priorities. We worked to consolidate our material structure by constructing a strong national base, despite being besieged by problems and complexities imposed by regional and international conditions.

 “We established our democratic system based on the needs of our people, and their economic, social and cultural conditions.”

We established our democratic system based on the needs of our people, and their economic, social and cultural conditions. This stemmed from their belief in freedom and pride in their own dignity.

Every citizen has become a partner in decision-making and in bearing responsibility. In the village, in the city, in the factory as in the farm, in various careers and at the university. All these are linked to the process of consolidating the multi-party system and establishing the Progressive National Front. Expanding the circle of decision making and freedom of discussion and participation is the guarantee to achieve the democratic process. In light of this, discussions in all establishments are but a positive and constructive phenomenon.

Dialogue and discussion are the best ways to disseminate thoughts and push forward towards shouldering the responsibility; hence, I would indicate that democracy is not the citizen practicing his right in electing his representatives to the institutions. It is rather these institutions carrying out their role according to the constitution and the law. Any reluctance by any institution in carrying out its role and shouldering its responsibility and not taking relevant decisions, will weaken the country and its people’s democratic system.

Cooperation between the PA, the Government, the Local Administration councils and the governmental institutions is a basic matter, but not to be at the expense of a role to be played by any of their institutions, especially the PA, which has effectively to carry out its role in supervision and following up matters. The PA’s carrying out of its role is not only an expression of a true democracy, but it is also a guarantee for the government to be well advised.

 “There are still some areas that should be dealt with to modernize the State and enable it to perform its tasks in serving the people and ensuring their needs.”

Despite the great efforts we have exerted to develop the State’s systems and institutions, there are still some areas that should be dealt with to modernize the State and enable it to perform its tasks in serving the people and ensuring their needs.

Modernizing the State requires that every worker in the State, whatever his position, should shoulder his full responsibility.

Developing work in the State’s bodies and establishments is an ultimate need and a national responsibility, so that the gap between us and others will not be enlarged.

“We are committed to comprehensive development as a national responsibility to the State and society. We have developed agriculture and industry, built dams, big industrial installations, set up economic pluralism, encouraged talents, given opportunities to all to contribute to society’s development.

We have created solid economic and social base which has enabled us to complete our infrastructure, such as, electricity, roads, dams, potable water projects, schools, universities, hospitals, medical centers, social educational, cultural and health services,”

Dr. Mohammad Abdo Al-Ibrahim
