The U.S. Commercial Service is active in Iraq with a Commercial Service office in Baghdad, designed to assist and facilitate U.S. business there.
Iraq's commercial potential is enormous. Beyond its well-known, substantial oil reserves, Iraq is a cradle of culture in the region with a highly literate and enterprising population. Surprising to many Americans, Iraq has had a highly developed agricultural sector and for generations has been a breadbasket in the Middle East. For many years Iraqi businessmen and engineers have been active and highly-respected throughout the region. Underlying economic conditions remain strong and are beginning to rebound in the current liberal economic environment. Iraq needs to import a wide range of products and services as it strives to recover and rebuild after nearly 20 years of economic stagnation. At the same time, U.S. firms should not ignore the commercial opportunities flowing from the multi-billion dollar international reconstruction effort. U.S. companies need to recognize the potential for economic renaissance in Iraq, and Commercial Service Baghdad is prepared to help U.S. businesses unlock that potential.
For extensive up-to-date information on commercial opportunities and conducting business in Iraq, we recommend that interested U.S. companies refer to the U.S. Department of Commerce Iraq Investment and Reconstruction Task Force (IIRTF) website. For business counseling on opportunities in Iraq, please e-mail questions to IraqInfo@mail.doc.gov or call (866) 352-IRAQ (4727).
