Iraq Today, Issue 3 (Spring 2014)

Download_buttonDear readers.

Here at Hope House we’ve been delighted at how many of you have fed back on your view of the last magazine, and we’re especially pleased (and relieved!) that it’s been overwhelmingly positive.

There were many constructive comments too, and I hope that these are reflected in the following pages.

This month there’s something to interest everyone. The latest business news from Iraq; features on the continuing success of our IBBC members; photos from IBBC events over the last few months, and profiles of some of our top companies and senior executives. There’s even time to tell you about an ancient Iraqi instrument that has been brought back to life!

As many of you will be aware, Prime Minister David Cameron has appointed Baroness Nicholson as his Trade Envoy to Iraq. Though this is separate from her work at the IBBC, it is terrific news for the Council too and will help enhance its reputation worldwide. You’ll find the full story a few pages from here.
I think you’ll agree that the mood of Iraq Today suitably reflects the good news coming out of Iraq these days.

Yes, there are still plenty of challenges, but the country is going from strength to strength. With its spectacular economic growth and huge mineral wealth, it is indeed a very good place to do business and we will be here to reflect this and champion her growing world reputation.

Don’t forget to check out our website for more stories and video of IBBC events and please feel free to Tweet @IBBC_London with any news you have for us.

If you’d like to reach our sizeable global readership of movers and shakers, then please contact us about advertising in the next edition. Our Chief Operating Officer, Christophe Michels, would be delighted to hear from you at christophe.michels@webuildiraq.org.

Best wishes, and happy reading,
