an image
Iraq is an expanding market of historical importance in the Middle East. Swedish companies have been exporting to Iraq for over seventy years and the bilateral relationship is characterized by close people-to-people contacts. The country’s growing young population and significant infrastructure investments present opportunities for both established and new Swedish companies in the market.

Energy, ICT and industrial manufacturing represent the largest sectors for Sweden in Iraq. With the increasing push for reconstruction of vital services and economic diversification, the Business Sweden team covering Iraq has also invested in developing sector expertise within among others oil and gas, power generation, infection control and cancer management, transportation and Public Private Partnerships. 

The Iraqi market offers a wide range of opportunities, however, the on-going decentralization reforms and the security situation can create challenges for Swedish businesses. Most prominently, companies face obstacles understanding the bureaucratic framework and developing corporate strategies efficiently manages public stakeholders.
