Iraq's Minister for Construction and Housing, Mohammed Sahib al-Daraji [Muhammad Sahib Al Darraji] (pictured), met with the German ambassador in Baghdad to discuss cooperation on road projects, bridges and the construction of residential complexes.
Minister Al-Daraji said:
"German companies have a great reputation in the field of processing modern equipment and machinery. Iraq is about to launch large projects and enter a construction boom, but needs international experience in the field of reconstruction of infrastructure, and this is what we want from the German side."
Ambassador Christian Karl George Berger expressed his country's interest to enter Iraq's market, especially the construction and building sector.
