As Iraq recovers from decades of war, U.S. businesses are taking a close look at potential investment opportunities. Project financing is particularly important, as Iraq needs new power plants, housing developments, roads, bridges, ports and telecommunications systems. Because security is still a concern, many savvy investors and service providers are paying particular attention to Kurdistan, the semi-autonomous northern region that has a favorable business climate.

Iraq has been offering incentives to stimulate private investment in infrastructure projects since the passage of Investment Law No. 13 of 2006. That law established the National Investment Commission, which can grant investment licenses for important projects and serve as a single point of contact for U.S. and international investors. In addition, the Kurdistan Investment Law No. 4 of 2006 provides an attractive legal framework for investors, including comprehensive tax exemptions. Together, these laws promote investment and the use of international arbitration to resolve disputes.
