Wadie Habboush, Esq, President and CEO of Habboush Group, represented the Iraqi private sector at the Iraq-related public session at the World Economic Forum MENA 2013, held in Jordan in May.
The panel session, entitled, “Economies in Focus: Iraq,” addressed the question: “How can Iraq deliver inclusive growth and development in light of favorable energy prices as well as the current political and security landscape?”
“In Basra, you do see movement of the economy. Major oil companies have mobilized there … but, our international friends do not really see what is happening. So we have a perception problem,” Habboush said, encouraging foreign more investment in Iraq.
The panel included other noted figures:
- Sayed Amar Al-Hakim (Religious and political leader)
- Saleh Al-Mutlag (Deputy PM of Iraq)
- Baker Al-Zubaidi (Former Minister of Finance, and Interior)
