The tragedy of sectarian violence continues in Iraq, but the country still presses ahead with its development, and foreign companies continue to seize opportunities to contribute to the country’s growth and prosperity.
This week in our newsletter, we have details of a Russian company‘s first oil output at an Iraqi oilfield, a Danish company exploring for oil in Iraqi Kurdistan, and a Pakistani company re-opening its office in Baghdad.
And at a time when progress is being made in the dispute regarding the export of oil from Iraqi Kurdistan, there are many quesstions still to be answered. To help shed some light on consequences for the industry, Iraq Business News is delighted to be a Media Partner in the forthcoming conference to be held in Abu Dhabi. Hosted by Academy & Finance, “The Control of Energy in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq” will take place on 3rd and 4th March — full details can be found here.
