The French Connections

While Turkey is undoubtedly the country with the most companies operating in Iraq -- 270 of them, according to this recent report -- it is France that clearly takes the prize for the most active of Iraq's non-bordering countries.

Iraq's National Investment Commission (NIC) says there are 123 French companies with operations in the country, and it's clear from recent news-flow that France is not stopping there.

At an official level, France is obviously doing the right things to cement (pun intended) its relations with Iraq:

The sluggishness of some other countries, including the US, to take advantage of the opportunities in Iraq has not gone un-noticed.

In the nature of things, these opportunities don't hang around forever.
