A Message from the Iraqi Commercial Consular

Dear Friends,

On behalf of everyone at the Iraqi Commercial office here in Washington, D.C., I welcome you to our web portal. The Embassy of Iraq's Commercial Office endeavors to serve as a critical link between the Republic of Iraq and the United States of America focused squarely on increasing trade and commerce between our two nations.

This is a critical time in the history of our two nations. Iraq is embarking today on an ambitious process of reconstruction, in an environment of freedom and opportunity, following decades of gross corruption and mismanagement under Saddam’s brutal dictatorial regime. To realize our vision for a free, prosperous Iraq, we need foreign expertise and investment to help rebuild our economy and our infrastructure. Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki emphasizes this point, extending a warm welcome and invitation to the international community to invest in the new Iraq. Few countries are as well-placed to contribute to this process as the United States of America. The unique ties between our two countries mean that American companies interested in investing in Iraq’s future have unique opportunities that will be of crucial help to Iraq whilst yielding much profit to those investors.

If you are interested in trade and commerce between Iraq and the United States, we hope and trust that the Iraqi Commercial Office here in Washington, D.C. will be your first port of call.

Our site aims to provide its users with access to our office and the multitude of resources available to both Iraqi and American firms exploring opportunities in each respective country. Users can also access material about Iraqi laws, official policies, programs and services. Students and researchers can find information about Iraq as a country; its history, geography and culture.

The Iraqi Commercial Office in Washington D.C. is constantly updating content and strives to deliver the most pertinent information to you the user.

In the event that the site fails to meet your needs in any way, or if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact us.

Warmest Regards,

Naufel Aboalshon Al-Hassan
