Welcome to the Iraq Banking & Investment Summit

Held for the first time in Baghdad on the 2nd and 3rd December, under the patronage of the Central Bank of Iraq, this landmark event will discuss the exciting opportunities and growth prospects within Iraq. This two-day forum will discuss the enormous potential of the Iraqi economy, bringing together high level discussion between government officials, decision makers, large multinationals and investors.

This important conference, the first of its kind to be held in Baghdad, is being organised at a crucial time. Iraq has reclaimed its land and driven out Daesh from its borders. The country is ready to develop its economy and once again showcase all it has to offer. The country is well known for its extensive hydrocarbon reserves, however, with the current decline in oil price, now is the time to highlight all the potential industries within the country.

Iraq has come through a difficult few years with declining oil prices and a costly war, however, its economy has remained robust. Growth is forecasted to average over 12% in 2017 with the budget deficit expected to be eliminated over the coming few years. The government successfully offered two sovereign bonds, exceeding all expectations, both highly oversubscribed. The confidence in the international investor community highlights the continued support to develop Iraq and its economy. With extensive opportunities within banking, mining, tourism, agriculture and many other sectors, now is the time to invest in Iraq.
