Kurds establish trade links with Egypt

Kurdistan, Commerce
A delegation of Kurdish traders is in Egypt for talks on how to expand trade and economic relations. The delegation, headed by Abullah Mohammed of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, has held talks with Egyptian industry and trade officials. “Several agreements have been signed to boost economic cooperation,” Mohammed was reported as saying.
Hundreds of thousands of Iraqis have fled to the region. The influx is reported to have led to shortages in housing and increased pressure on the region’s already strapped resources. Mohammed said the Kurdish region was peaceful and the authorities were keen to boost economic ties with Egypt. “We are ready to offer all the facilities to Egyptian importers and exporters to invest in the region which is currently large-scale reconstruction,” he said.
