Baghdad The head of Al-Fateh Alliance, Hadi Al-Amiri, called on Tuesday the giant Japanese companies to contribute to building Iraq.

His media office said in a statement: “Al-Amiri met in his office with the Japanese Ambassador in Baghdad, Matsumoto Hotoshi, to discuss strengthening relations between Baghdad and Tokyo and increasing cooperation at all levels to serve the two countries, especially in the field of investment.

Al-Amiri expressed his hope that the giant Japanese companies that built their country after World War II would contribute to building Iraq, rehabilitating its facilities, and benefiting from their experience and expertise in reconstruction and development.

He pointed out that “Iraq has a suitable environment for investment, criticizing the unprofessionalism of some media outlets that exaggerate a bad and unrealistic picture of the security situation in Iraq.”

For his part, Hotoshi explained that he “received many requests from Japanese companies to invest in Iraq, indicating that there are many challenges, most notably the need for an encouraging environment for these companies to enter to work inside Iraq.”
