Photo taken on Aug. 10, 2017 shows the general view of the fairgrounds of the Damascus International Fair in Damascus, capital of Syria. After a five-year pause, the Damascus International Fair, the Syrian economy's window to the world, is returning this month. It is a sign that the country's war is declining and reviving the economy, which hit rock bottom during the prolonged conflict, has become the focus of the government. Established in 1954, the fair's last edition was held in 2011, the first year of the Syrian war. In later years, the fair was suspended because of the war before the Syrian government decided to renew it as the fair will take place on Aug. 17 this year. (Xinhua/Ammar Safarjalani)
