Anbar Investment Commission (AIC) announced today that it is postponing its third annual international conference which was scheduled for December 15-17, 2012 in the city of Erbil, Kurdistan, Iraq.
The Commission's Board of Directors met yesterday and decided it would be best to postpone the conference to allow for greater participation and sponsorship. Many companies have contacted the commission indicating their interest, but requested adequate time to make necessary arrangements for participation and for presenting their current projects in Anbar.
This decision was in full coordination with our partners in the conference, the National Investment Commission and the Kurdistan Board of Investment. All current sponsors and participants have been contacted and informed of the decision.
His Excellency Dr. Rafe' Al-Issawi, Minister of Finance is still confirmed as the Chairman of the conference. In a phone call with AIC Chairman Mr. Amer Farhan, Dr. Al-Issawi renewed his commitment to making this event a great success with a complete focus on the investors' needs and challenges. His Excellency is looking forward to meeting the sponsors and participants and having an open dialogue with them.
Conference venue which is Erbil Rotana remains the same. The new confirmed date for the conference is Saturday, February 16-18, 2013. To register for the conference and to learn more about sponsorship opportunities, please visit the official conference website www.investanbar.com
