For that, this paper will analyses the unemployment available data and use the cointegration method.

There is a strong and fixed relation between worker productivity, capital accumulation per worker and terms of trade, and the unemployment rate on the other said. Finally, the paper suggests that the solution of the problem lies in enhancing the investment climate, increasing investment, improving the competitiveness of the Syrian goods.
