Following the outstanding success of both the Iraq Banking and Investment Summit, and Iraq: A Leap Forward, we are delighted to announce IFEX: IRAQ Finance Expo, the premier online conference and exhibition for Iraq’s financial future. Officially co-hosted with the Central Bank of Iraq and the Government of Iraq, IFEX is the only digital conference of its kind tackling the critical challenges affecting Iraq’s finances.

The current global lockdown and depleted oil price has left Iraq in a vulnerable position. With high levels of unemployment, oil dependency and dilapidated public infrastructure, Iraq is in need for financial change. International donors and development finance institutions are ready to support the country in its current crisis. IFEX will tackle the key challenges ahead that lie in Iraq and the subsequent opportunities that arise in the country. IFEX will discuss a range of subjects from the future investment landscape in Iraq to financial & digital technologies that will drive the local economy.

Not only will large financing projects be under the spotlight, but the fastest growing industries from mobile banking to e-commerce will be discussed through our unique online conference. Join us for an unrivalled online 3-day VIP conference programme and learn about the outstanding opportunities within Iraq’s financial services.
