According to a statement from the PM's office, the business leaders shared their respective visions on assisting Iraq and on solutions to Iraq's economic and financial challenges caused by the reduction in oil prices.
The names of the companies were not released, but they were described as being in the financial, banking, commercial, petroleum and technological sectors.
