Welcome to Iraq Finance 2017

2017 is a decisive year for Iraq’s strategic efforts to sustain economic progress and develop new financing opportunities. After years of turmoil Iraq is finally looking towards a peaceful future rife with potentials and opportunities. After implementing long awaited structural and administrative reforms which have begun to reveal the immense investment potential in an economy poised for expansion, the country’s government is committed to continue on its prosperous path by providing security and promoting transparency.

Iraq’s economy has proven unrivalled resilience, facing and overcoming first and foremost the sharp decline in oil prices in recent years. More and more the country is opening up for privatisation and is offering new opportunities for foreign direct investment across the industries, particularly seeking international partners to modernise its financial services infrastructure. Being less dependent on oil revenues Iraq continues to seek new partnerships to deal with a number of urgent fiscal and political issues and fund infrastructure projects to boost the oil and gas, electricity and transportation projects.

Connecting Iraq with global decision makers, this is an event too important to miss. Under the Patronage of H.E Ali al-Allaq, Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq leading financial figures will gather in a way that no other event can, key Iraqi officials, more than 200 investors, global corporate leaders, bankers, finance and legal professionals, and the most influential personalities on the banking sector in the region.
