Steve Lutes, vice president of Middle East Affairs at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, said:

"We want to expand and diversify the US involvement in commercial activity [in Iraq] ... We look forward to building on this momentum and exploring next steps!"

U.S. Ambassador Douglas Silliman described the event as, "the largest US Chamber of Commerce business delegation anywhere in the world this year!"

"Now we work to negotiate real contracts and investments," he added.
