Iraq's Re-building Opportunities Involving Diversification Initiatives across Multiple Sectors Make it an Attractive Investment Destination Globally


New opportunities emerge with the returning of semblance of political stability and initiation of the nation’s redevelopment and reformation plans


Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

Bridged between Asia, Middle East and African economies and strategically placed at the mouth of Europe, Iraq possesses immense locational advantage as a nation with opportunities that stand to be untapped. The country benefits from immense natural wealth in the form of its huge reserves of natural resources. Having been brutally battered first by the Gulf war and more recently by the ISIS conflict, Iraq is just emerging from the destruction and strategizing the rebuilding of the country to position itself as a regional super power.
 
Even as the nation’s re-building opportunity proves to be humungous and unique, investors and businesses alike are in need of business intelligence in understanding the right mode of entry, the most rewarding business model and business opportunity. Iraq possesses one of the largest oil reserves in the world making it a highly attractive business opportunity. As the country also focuses on diversification initiatives, opportunities unfurl in sectors such as construction, infrastructure, healthcare, transportation, energy and telecom which are being positioned as high priority development sectors.
 
Frost & Sullivan’s recent research report on “Assessment of Industry Sector Opportunities in Iraq” provides a broad overview of the current status of these high priority sectors, apart from providing a brief peek into addressable opportunity areas.

Ali Mirmohammad, Senior Consultant - Iraq, Frost & Sullivan said, “With the end of the ISIS war, Iraq is on the path of reconstruction and economic resurrection that calls for sustained investment to the tune of over USD 900 billion within the next decade. Iraq plans to focus on the Oil & Gas downstream value chain as well as minerals value chain, construction and infrastructure industries, healthcare, energy, tourism and financial services sectors to move the GDP growth rate by 10% annually within the next decade”.
 
Following the ISIS war, multiple sectors are in a state of disarray and would need massive re-development and newer investments. Oil & gas, housing, infrastructure, industry, minerals, and service sectors would account for 65% of the overall investment in the next 10 years, while ICT, transportation healthcare, water, electricity, tourism and renewable energy would account for the remaining 35% investment in Iraq in the next 10 years.
 
“The country requires over USD 30 billion per annum of foreign direct investment (FDI) to achieve its reformation and stabilisation goals within the next 10 years,” noted Ali. “With 39+ million population, Iraq remains an attractive consumer market with potential of over USD 40 billion.”
