Bahrain to host Iraqi reconstruction forum in November

(Iraq Directory) - Ghassan Hussein, Iraqi ambassador to Manama, said that Bahrain will host the first Iraqi-Gulf Forum and Exhibition on Iraqi Reconstruction this November. He stressed that consolidating relations with Bahrain is a priority of the Iraqi embassy there, expressing thanks to King Hamad Bin Issa Al Khalifa for kind gestures towards the treatment of Iraqi children and training of various Iraqi cadres.
He added that Iraq's oil and economic policies led to improvements despite deteriorating security, confirming that Bahraini investors have already invested, especially in the region of Iraqi Kurdistan which enjoys the highest level of security.
The Iraqi ambassador said that choosing Bahrain to hold a forum and exhibition is of great significance for the deepening relationship between the two countries, and that the Bahrain event is the first stage toward the success of other Gulf States forums. He expected that 2000 Iraqi businessmen and officials will attend the forum as there are many positive responses to this Conference, which is supported by the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Bahraini-American Chamber of Commerce.
The Iraqi Forum was supposed to be organized last March but the States were not ready then, so it was postponed to November. Many nations have announced participation, notwithstanding that the Iraqi community in Bahrain does not exceed 1400 persons according to an earlier press statement by the Iraqi ambassador to Manama.
