Iraq's Private Sector Growing
Iraq Fact of the Day

Private sector development is beginning to fuel Iraq's economy. In Baghdad, markets are full, new stores are opening daily, and there is a great demand for consumer goods and services. Iraqi businesses are joining leading companies from around the world -- from providers of computers, telecommunications, and consumer goods to accounting firms and international hotels -- in making significant investments in Iraq. This is an indication that investors believe in the future of a prosperous, democratic Iraq.
