"Iraq best investment attraction in ME after the Gulf"
Baghdad, Sep. 8 (AKnews) - Iraq has been dubbed the most suitable foreign investment attraction after the Gulf countries in the Middle East, an international organization said Thursday. Iraq has been able to attract what is worth US$6 billion of foreign investment this year in housing and other infrastructure projects. Analysts say that any unrest in the Arab region serves the interest of Iraq in terms of investments. Ilham al-Baghdadi, coordinator for the British T.V.D organization in Baghdad told AKnews that Iraq is the best in the region after the Gulf countries despite the "legal and bureaucratic obstacles" Reports show that ownership of land has been the main deterrence for global investment firms from entering Iraq. The organization is working in Baghdad since July 2009 as it coordinates between the local investment committee and global investment firms. The organization maintains a specialized center for investment studies in the region. Baghdadi said that the reports indicate that Iraq has 5,000 investment opportunities in the public and private sectors with more than 230 foreign companies working in the country.

There’s More to Iraq than Oil and Gas
Posted on 07 September 2011.
Iraq Business News is attending the Iraq Mining 2011 conference in London on Wednesday and Thursday as Principal Media Sponsor, and it is exciting to see the wealth of opportunities available to investors in the non-oil resources sector. Silica sand, marble, limestone, gypsum, dolomite, kaolin, glauberite and quartzite were just some of the minerals discussed, while metals such as gold and lead may be present in Iraqi Kurdistan and Anbar. A key point is that Iraq is the only country to have abundant reserves of all four of the main requirements for agricultural fertiliser — phosphates, sulphur, nitrates (urea and ammonia, from natural gas), and potash — which are increasingly in demand in the developing world. The Iraqi government is determined to capitalise on this potential as it attempts to reduce its dependency on the oil and gas industry. Seizing the opportunity for a pun, Dr Sami al-Araji, Chairman of the National Investment Commission (NIC) told delegates, “we will leave no stone unturned until Iraq reaches its full potential“. Over the coming days Iraq Business News will bring you interviews with leading Iraqi officials attending the conference. http://www.iraq-businessnews.com/2011/09/07/theres-more-to-iraq-than-oil-and-gas/
