Welcome to Iraq Finance 2016
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 defence 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.
Iraq Finance 2016 is the most influential, and best attended, annual event in the region to take place on banking and finance in Iraq.
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.
Organized for the first time in Beirut at the heart of the Levant region, the event will take place at the historic and prestigious Phoenicia Hotel, part of the Inter Continental Group. Within easy flying time of Baghdad and other capitals in the Middle East, the conference is certain to draw leading figures from the world of finance and business in the region and beyond.
Connecting Iraq with global decision makers, this is an event too important to miss. Under the Patronage of H.E Ali al-Allaq, Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq, Iraq Finance 2016 will gather in a way that no other event can, key Iraqi officials, more than 300 investors, global corporate leaders, bankers, finance and legal professionals, and the most influential personalities on the banking sector in the region.
