IFP Iraq, a member of IFP Group, held a press conference on Wednesday at the Erbil International Fair Ground to announce the launch of the 13th edition of Erbil International Fair, in the presence of Mr. Abdullah Ahmad Abdul-Raheem; President of Erbil International Fair ground, Mr. Mohamad Saeed Mzori; Commercial Attaché of the French Consulate in Erbil, and Mr. Georges Khoury; General Manager of IFP Iraq, along with several diplomats, official bodies, and members of the press.
Mr. Khoury delivered a speech reflecting on the region’s notable business potential and the important role that Erbil International Fair has taken on for over a decade to stimulate the region’s economy.
“Erbil is once again in the spotlight following a significant business movement that Kurdistan is witnessing, in an effort to boost the region’s economy and stimulate local and international trade. With hundreds of opportunities arising across numerous sectors, it becomes evident that the time to invest and expand is now,” he said.
“On that note, I’m pleased to announce the launch of the 13th edition of Erbil International Fair, the International Multi-Sector Trade Fair, alongside two flagship exhibitions: Project Iraq – the 10th International Trade Exhibition for Construction Materials, Equipment & Environmental Technologies, as well as Iraq Agro-Food – the 10th International Trade Exhibition for Agriculture, Food, Food Processing & Packaging,” he continued.
On his part, Mr. Mzori said:
“The participation of French companies in Erbil International Fair in its 13th edition is a reflection of our commitment to establishing a sustainable partnership between French companies and the Kurdistan region, and our support for its economic development.”
“The commercial section of the French Consulate in Erbil decided to participate in Erbil International Fair and Iraq Agro-Food with a French Pavilion. The aim of our participation is to present the best French products and services that these companies can provide in Kurdistan which is a starting point for expansion across the rest of Iraq’s provinces,” he added.
Organized by IFP Iraq, Erbil International Fair, with its concurrent events, provides an unprecedented opportunity to penetrate the dynamic market in Kurdistan and Iraq at large, gain access to key decision-makers from the public and private sectors, and grab a share of the region’s multi-billion project tenders.
Erbil International Fair covers a broad spectrum of economic sectors and presents a large selection of diverse products and services in the fields of engineering, electronics, furniture, telecommunications, fashion, banking, real estate, handcrafts, and much more.
The exhibition attracts local, regional, and international enterprises with the aim of exploring business opportunities in Iraq’s diverse markets. It also facilitates trade across various industries with the region’s neighboring countries and the world.
Erbil International Fair, Project Iraq, and Iraq Agro-Food will be held from 30 September to 3 October 2019 at the Erbil International Fair Ground.
