Iraq Banking, Finance and Development
Enhancing and Developing Long-term Trade and Investment Partnerships with Iraq
A practical & in-depth two-day international conference
Under the auspices of the Iraq Ministry of Finance and with the official support of the Trade Bank of Iraq
A new legal regime is emerging in Iraq that it is hoped will create the right conditions for a major influx of foreign investment into the country.
The recent passage of a new foreign investment law will give Iraqis and foreign investors equal shares in investment projects and allow investors to move money in and out of the country relatively unhindered. Meanwhile, a new hydrocarbons law is eagerly awaited by investors keen to play a part in the nation’s oil sector.
This high-profile conference interweaves senior-level presentations, practical and in-depth industry case-studies and panel debate to showcase the latest projects and examine how industry, commerce and government can work together to benefit from investment opportunities in, and trade with, Iraq.
Iraq Banking, Finance and Development will feature a well-balanced combination of UK, EU and US commercial interests and a senior delegation from the Iraqi government.
Taking place under the auspices of the Iraq Ministry of Finance and with the official support of the Trade Bank of Iraq
