Iraq’s Prime Minister, Haidar Al-Abadi, has predicted his country to host a large number of investments, by several internationally renowned companies, after Kuwait’s conference on reconstruction in Iraq.

Investors are no longer worried about security issues in Iraq, Al-Abadi said, in a press conference, Tuesday, adding, Baghdad has received confirmations by a number of key countries, to attend the conference, including the United States, China, and Japan, in addition to European and Gulf countries.

Participation requests by firms in the event, have exceeded the number of assigned seats, he said, noting, the conference has asked the participating countries to invite their major companies to the event.

The Iraqi Premier also affirmed his country’s willingness, to host large investments, after the conference, noting, Iraq has now become an attractive business venue for investors.

No miracles are expected from the “Kuwait International Conference for Reconstruction of Iraq,” he said, explaining that the event, however, is part of a number of steps, within a comprehensive programme, for the reconstruction of Iraq.

Over 400 international businesses are expected to attend the event, slated for Feb 12, alongside dozens of governments.
