Despite the destruction that Manbij went through, its economy is slowly coming back to life, a little more with every passing day. Directly after the liberation of the city, the Democratic Autonomy of Manbij opened an Economic Committee, which is working to create a stable foundation for a people’s economy. All ethnic and/or religious groups of Manbij are represented in the Committee, and it focuses its efforts on creating an economic model that promotes sisterhood and equality between all people.
Co-chair Muhammed Sabri Mustafa is a Turkmen representative of the Manbij Economic Committee. He answered all questions we had about the economic situation in Manbij and the projects of the Economic Committee.
