Steve Walker, U.S. Consul General in Basrah

You are smart to consider Basrah as a destination for your business.

Iraq has one of the world’s fastest growing economies, and the United States government is helping American firms take advantage of this growth.   Basrah is at the center of Iraq’s international commercial activity. After years of war and turmoil, there is strong demand for the quality and business practices U.S. companies bring. 

There are opportunities in Basrah and the other three southern provinces we cover in construction, oil and gas, logistics, power, health care and many other sectors. 

The United States has had a presence in Basrah since 2003.  A top priority for the U.S. Consulate General is using our experience to advise you and advocate for your interests with local authorities.  Doing business here is not without complications, and we can help you deal with them.
