A partner at a London-based financial advisory business has suggested Iraq as a true frontier market investment, saying:
“The greatest opportunities for emerging market investors have always come when political chaos coincides with a dire media consensus, and a major underlying economic improvement is thereby ignored. Iraq stands firmly in this tradition of missed investor opportunities.“
While we agree with the general thrust of his argument, regular readers of Iraq Business News will be aware that there are many sides to the Iraq story; the consensus of the rest of the media may indeed be dire, but we’ve shown that there is plenty of good news to be found on the business front. For example, this week alone we’ve published 18 new business opportunites in our Tenders section.
And we’re pleased to report that the value of fair and balanced reporting hasn’t gone unnoticed.
