The Second Session of the United States-Iraq Trade and Investment Council

On the 14th of June 2019, the second session of the United States-Iraq Trade and Investment Council convened in Washington, D.C., which was established under the Trade and Investment Framework Agreement signed between our two countries in 2005. The Council was co-chaired by Iraq Minister of Trade Dr. Mohammed Hashim Al-Ani and Deputy U.S. Trade Representative Jeffrey Gerrish.

During the meeting, Iraq and the United States discussed a range of bilateral trade and investment issues. U.S.-Iraqi cooperation in these areas aims at further integrating Iraq into the global economy and seeking ways to promote greater reciprocal market access, thereby creating jobs and attracting investment to both countries.
