CG Meeting with Industrial Union
April 19, 2017
This week, the Consul General and consulate staff met with the Chairman and members of the Basrah Chamber of Industry, one of southern Iraq’s major business associations. During the meeting, they discussed Basrah’s investment climate and potential avenues for future collaboration. With some private investment and reduction in red tape, the Industrialists estimate they have the potential to employ 37 percent of the population. We agree that unleashing Iraq’s private sector is the key to boosting employment and economic growth.
