RCD Security and Economic Forum 2019: Iraq is Recovering

Following the defeat of ISIS, Iraq is now at a crossroads, facing major challenges on two fronts: security and the economy. The Iraqi government is working hard to revive, boost, and develop the Iraqi economy, concurrently working on the stabilisation of the security environment. To achieve this difficult but not insurmountable task there are multiple hurdles to overcome. This has not been helped by volatile geopolitics. Further, ISIS still represents a threat despite its territorial defeat. The Iraqi economy is still at the mercy of fluctuating oil prices.

Iraq’s political leadership is undergoing efforts to open up the Iraqi economy to investors worldwide, aiming to build on the defeat of ISIS by becoming a hub for trade and investment. It is stepping up its efforts to become the second largest producer of oil within OPEC. Iraq is recovering and is leading the way to a more secure and prosperous region.

To discuss these aspects of Iraq’s economy and security, in addition to the geopolitics and economics of the region, The Rafidain Centre for Dialogue (RCD) is honoured to announce the upcoming RCD Security and Economic Forum to be held in Baghdad on 26-28th Sept 2019 at the Babylon hotel.
