The Erbil International Multi-Sector Trade Fair, which has been held yearly for the past nine years, is considered one of the most prominent specialized business events that take place annually in the region in order to stimulate and develop trade between Kurdistan and the rest of Iraq on one hand, and among neighboring states and the Asian, European, and American countries on the other.
Jordanian companies which have participated in Erbil’s fair last year have started exporting their products to Erbil and some companies have found commercial agents, the Jordan Enterprise Development Corporation (JEDCO) said. In the statement, JEDCO’s CEO Yarub Qudah said JEDCO is working to support Jordanian companies and boost their exports to global and international markets. Forty nine local companies have participated in the Jordanian pavilion at Erbil International Fair 2012.
