Osman Aidi


Osman Aidi, a well-known hotelier and businessman in Syria, passed away at the age of ninety last week. Although state-owned media did not report on his death, Mr Aidi was one of the few Syrian businessmen who was influential in Syria’s economy both before and after the Baath Party took control of the country.
Cham Palaces and Hotels, Syria’s largest five-star hotel chain, said its revenues increased last year, thanks largely to a rising number of foreign tourists.
