Reform and Resiliency in Iraq: Emerging Economically from the Pandemic
Join us for an update on the latest issues affecting businesses in Iraq. A recent study conducted by Baghdad-based Stars Orbit Consulting and commissioned by CIPE identifies local private sector perspectives from various industries on economic conditions and the business enabling environment from 15 governorates of Iraq. Among the issues assessed by the study are bureaucratic obstacles; administrative corruption; legal enforcement; infrastructure; quality assurance standards; planning; security challenges and the refugee/ IDP crisis; labor market needs; and access to capital and financial services. The study also assessed the significant impact of the Covid-19 crisis on business operations. Recommendations from the study outline some of the key areas for intervention.
