Fasken Martineau invites you to attend an informative session on business opportunities in Iraq. Many Canadian companies have taken a keen interest in Iraq’s economic development plans (estimated at more than $1 trillion over the next decade) and are considering investing there. Security challenges are real but manageable, with many Canadian companies already successfully doing business in Iraq. Others are using Jordan as a stable platform to base for their Iraq operations.

Commercial opportunities are significant in all sectors, most notably in oil and gas, infrastructure, education, agri-food, and in banking and finance.

Speakers will explain current business opportunities and what you need to know about doing business in Iraq. They include:

• His Excellency Minister Sami Al-Araji, Chairman of Iraq’s National Investment Commission;
• His Excellency Mr. Bruno Saccomani, Ambassador of Canada to Jordan and Iraq.
