As I’ve mentioned in early April on this blog that PM Maliki, will be heading to an Investment Conference in London after his meeting with the Russians. PM Maliki had 93 Iraqi officials in attendance and as I’ve said to others in private email communications this would be very important invitation only meeting for Iraq.
It is too early to tell if the meeting was successful for Iraq or not we just have to see what is reported and actions of the business world towards Iraq.
PM Maliki gave a speech on 30 April
The speech he gave announced some things new and other issues that is confronting Iraq at the moment and into the next several years.
I will say this after reading the full speech by PM Maliki after our translation department transcribed it, does give some details of where Iraq is headed or where PM Maliki would like to see Iraq.
I will seriously think about posting the full speech on this site. Just haven’t made a decision.
In October, there will be another serious conference and this time we don’t have to cross borders as it will be held in Baghdad.
Think International Compact.
