A delegation of 20 Kurdish officials and businessmen, in London for the Iraq Britain Business Councils (IBBC)’s London Business Forum, visited the University of Wolverhampton last week to exchange ideas and explore partnerships with businesses in the West Midlands and the university itself.
Dr Dara Jalil Khayat, President of Kurdistan Federation of Chambers of Commerce & Industry; Dr. Atia Al Salihy, former Health Adviser to the KRG PM; Dr. Nisar Talabany, present Health Adviser to the KRG PM; and Dr. Nozad Yahya Said Baiger, the Founder & Chairman of Cihan University, were amongst the delegation that visited the university.
During the visit, which was hosted by the University of Wolverhampton’s Business Solutions Centre, the delegates met with several businesses located in the region to discuss new commercial bridges that could be established between the Kurdish and West Midlands business communities. They also visited WOOTE, a dedicated simulation centre, for a tour of digital simulation technology.
The Business Solutions Centre team, including International Business Development Manager Nigel Birch, also offered their support and expertise to delegates who were interested in starting up new projects, and provided them with advice on how to make their business ideas come to fruition.
On the second day of the visit, Dr. Nozad Yahya Said Baiger met with University officials to explore the possibility of establishing a partnership with Cihan University.
The visit was the second of its kind to the University of Wolverhampton, which is part of the IBBC University Membership scheme.
