Business and Other Briefings

ECGD: Given the progress of the economy and improvements in security, the Export Credits Guarantee Department has now decided to make available a limited amount of cover on a first-come-first-served basis from 7 July 2009.  ECGD has not provided medium-term cover since before Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait in 1990.
 
UK Trade & Investment (UKTI), the government organisation that helps British business grow internationally, has also expanded its presence in both Baghdad and Basra.  Its trade & commercial teams can provide tailored support and advice for any UK companies looking to do business in the market
