Iraq Finance 2016
Third International conference and exhibition on banking and financial services in Iraq
Iraq Finance 2016 is the most influential and best attended, annual event in the region to take place on banking and finance in Iraq.
After an eventful year that has seen international oil prices fall 50% and security challenges growing throughout the Middle East, Iraq’s economy is proving to be remarkably resilient.
In spite of a need to concentrate on defense and security, projects continue to gather momentum especially in the key oil and gas sectors designed to double crude output and create new natural gas industries.
The government is planning to issue $11 billion in domestic and international bonds to cover the state budget deficit.
The country’s new government is facing up to long awaited structural and administrative reforms which, as they are implemented, will reveal the immense investment potential in an economy poised for expansion.
This is a pivotal moment to focus on Iraq’s strategies to sustain economic progress and develop new financing opportunities. Following two highly successful previous events, Iraq Finance 2016 will once again provide a unique platform for delegates to network, debate and engage on the reforms and investments needed across Iraq’s financial sector.
Keynote speakers of Iraq Finance 2016…………..Ali al-Allaq
Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq
