IBBC Autumn Conference in Dubai 25 Nov, Speakers Announced – Session 1 Logistics – Imports/Exports, People & Goods





24th Oct 2018


IBBC has brought together experienced industry figures working in the Logistics sector in Iraq to discuss the key issues facing Imports/Exports, People & Goods in facilitating the reconstruction and rebuilding of Iraq’s economy.

Session Overview :


 
For a conference entitled “Delivering the Vision“ it is appropriate that there is strong focus on Logistics, a cornerstone of any economy but one of significant importance where regional and international considerations come into account and there is a range of high value and specialized imports and exports.
Over the next few years as Iraq rebuilds its economy, it will need to import most of the complex and high value elements needed for industry growth, some directly from country of origin, some via intermediary ports. Logistics operations are crucial to a modern economy, enabling the efficient forward and reverse flow of skilled labour and local and imported resources, moving by land, sea and air. As the economy grows and becomes more sophisticated so the demand for international expertise and local employment will grow, and throughout the process international standards will need to be adhered to and regional and international logistic patterns coordinated with.
The session will touch on major logistic projects already under construction at the ports of Faw and Umn Qasr, new and planned pipelines for importing and exporting oil and gas products and a rapidly expanding aviation sector to accommodate increasing passenger and freight numbers. As well as increasing computerisation and tech applications to increase speed and efficiency of operations.

IBBC Autumn Conference in Dubai 25 Nov, Speakers Announced – Session 2 Regulatory & Financial Framework – Encouraging International Investment

7th Nov 2018





IBBC has brought together experienced industry figures working in the Regulatory & Finance sector to discuss how best to encourage international investment into Iraq.
Session Overview:
If Iraq wishes to attract foreign investment, whether that is IOC’s setting up operations, consultants or contractors setting up shop, suppliers of goods and products setting up distribution systems, those investors need to know that there is a regulatory framework in place that will allow them to protect their investment in a fair and due process way, relying on transparent systems and where judgements are enforceable. In addition a modern banking system, without the need for payments in cash is a prerequisite for a modern and well governed economy.
The World Bank and Legatum Institute produce annual reports showing how various countries around the world compare with each other in ease of doing business. To date Iraq has featured in the lower levels of such reports indicating much more needs to be done to achieve a dynamic and sophisticated business and financial environment.
This distinguished and expert panel, covering a number of aspects concerning regulatory & financial frameworks will outline recent improvements, areas still to be tackled and reforms which can facilitate a confident environment for investors and foster economic growth.
Speakers:
 

  • Chair: Amar Shubar, Partner, Management Partners

  • Jason Ahmed Tabaqchali, Chief Investment Officer (CIO) of AFC Iraq Fund
