Exhibition Overview 


The Northern Gateway to Iraq is an attractive logistical hub for international companies 

With a young and increasingly prosperous population of nearly 4 million, Kurdistan covers about 40,000 km2. It enjoys stable security coupled with an emerging economy. The Region has two new international airports, one in Erbil, the capital of the region, and the other in Sulaimaniya, with over 80 direct flights per week, from Vienna, Frankfurt, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Dubai, Amman, and Istanbul. A liberal investment law, ratified by Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) offers foreign investors incentives including customs relief, tax holidays and the right to repatriate profits. Kurdistan has a regulated banking & finance sector that provides a variety of banking services. Over the past few years, northern Iraq has offered exciting investment opportunities for international reconstruction players. Efforts by the Kurdistan Development Corporation to attract top-caliber international investment to a region that has been described as the Northern Gateway to Iraq are fruitful. With over 105 private sector investment projects worth over $16 billion in Erbil, Sulaymaniyah and Duhok, opportunities are abound for everyone. The 5th edition of the Erbil International Fair in 2009 is set to provide a unique platform for companies, investors, entrepreneurs, professionals and exhibitors in general to develop business networking.
