Economic cooperation

The Embassy of Italy in Baghdad plays a very dynamic economic policy to support the Italian companies in Iraq; the mutual interest in strengthening the bilateral relations merges continuously during the meetings with the leaders of the new Iraqi government.

A Treaty of Friendship, Cooperation and Partnership, signed in 2007 and executive since July 2009 is in force between Italy and Iraq. The Treaty provides for the granting of a soft loan to Iraq of 400 million euros and the creation of a Mixed Commission.

Detailed information on the Country are now available in real time in the Iraq section of "InfoMercatiEsteri", the highly innovative and totally free platform which was launched in March 2013 by the General Directorate for the Promotion of the Country System  of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in order to meet the demand for information on foreign markets coming from italian economic operators.

In the portal a section is entirely devoted to Iraq, organized by the Italian Embassy in Baghdad with the aim of becoming the reference point for Italian businessmen and traders interested in this extraordinary market.

For requests from the Italian companies operating or willing to operate in Iraq, please refer to the new internet site NEXUS:
