The relations between Iraq and Germany have increasingly intensified these past years. The bilateral trade volume amounted to more than EUR 1.6 billion in 2017. The Iraqi market offers big potential for German business. Ambitious and feasible projects have been outlined up until 2022, and hundreds of billions of US-Dollars have been invested in projects in all areas, especially water supply, power generation, health and housing.  

The German government provides comprehensive assistance to the political and economic reconstruction process in Iraq. The traditionally close economic ties between the two countries can be instrumental in helping reconstruct Iraq’s infrastructure and economy, thus having a positive impact on Iraq’s political stabilization.

To further strengthen and expand the promising Iraqi-German business relations, the Ghorfa Arab-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry, together with the Association of German Chambers of Commerce and Industry (DIHK), and in cooperation with the Embassy of the Republic of Iraq and further partners from both countries, are organizing the

5th Iraqi-German Business Forum
from March 25th-26th, 2019
at the ‘Haus der Deutschen Wirtschaft’
Breite Straße 29
10178 Berlin.

Experts from industry, politics and science will discuss latest trends, projects and cooperation opportunities in Iraq. The conference presents a great opportunity to exchange ideas with high-ranking decision makers and potential business partners.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to the 5th Iraqi-German Business Forum.

Ghorfa Arab-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry

The Arab world has become one of the most dynamic business regions in the world. Promising moves are being made to liberalise economies and to provide a basis for long-term and sustainable growth across the Arab world. German companies are welcome to participate in the economic growth in the Arab countries. They are appreciated for the reliability and quality of their products and services, as well as their cooperation with local companies. Building on the principles of mutual benefit and understanding, Arab countries and Germany can gain a great advantage from increased cooperation in technology and science, as well as wider economic and social development. Germany’s small and medium sized companies demonstrate great potential for export and investment. The Arab-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry has promoted business relations between Germany and the Arab world for 40 years. The main focal points of our chamber are information, communication and networking. Therefore we offer our members and the wider Arab and German business communities various services to facilitate the cooperation between German and Arab partners.
