Iraq Kurdistan economy booming

As Iraq grapples with bombings, Kurdistan enjoys prosperity, growing economy thanks to its openness to foreign firms.

By Guillaume DECAMME - ARBIL

As central Iraq grapples with a surge in violence and a longer-term struggle to wean its economy off a dependence on oil, Abdullah Abdulkarim stands at a car dealership in the northern Kurdish city of Arbil and smiles.

"Every day, things are getting better."

Abdulkarim is not the only one who feels that way -- the economy of the autonomous Kurdish region in northern Iraq, with Arbil as its capital, is growing faster than the rest of the country and sees none of the violence that has raged across Arab areas.

In Arbil, crowded cafes overflow onto sidewalks, customers pack out restaurants with no fear of attack and, perhaps most importantly for the three-province region's future prospects, foreign investors appear keen to plant their flag.

"It is really easy to set up shop here," said Jorge Restrepo, an American of Colombian origin who runs a consultancy business in Kurdistan targeting Spanish and Canadian energy companies.

"The government of Kurdistan is very open to foreigners," he said.

Over the course of 22 years since the establishment of a no-fly zone over the region to keep out Saddam Hussein's forces, Kurdistan has increasingly distanced itself from the rest of Iraq.

The region, comprised of Arbil, Sulaimaniyah and Dohuk provinces and their capitals of the same names, has its own president and prime minister, and the Kurdish flag flutters over government buildings.

Rather than the Iraqi army and police, the peshmerga and asayesh comprise the region's security forces.

It is currently enjoying economic growth of 12 percent, according to its regional investment commission, while Iraq's economy as a whole is projected to expand by nine percent this year, according to the International Monetary Fund.

And almost 800 foreign firms -- the majority of them from neighbouring Turkey -- have so far entered the Kurdish market, apparently encouraged in particular by a 2006 investment law that exempts them from taxes on imports and profits for their first 10 years in the region.

Firms are not obliged to hire local staff, have local investors or local partners, and can repatriate their profits at their discretion, according to Kamiran Mufti, head of the regional investment commission.

But the crucial difference between Kurdistan and the rest of Iraq remains security.

"Security is really the key to success," said Ghada Gebara, head of Korek, Iraq's third-biggest mobile phone operator, which is headquartered in Arbil.

Nationwide violence in Iraq last month was its worst since 2008, according to both UN and official figures, but Mufti said the autonomous region, by contrast, did not record a single incident throughout May.

And there are more differences.

"The bureaucracy is enormous here as well, but in Baghdad, you also have religious divisions (between Sunni and Shiite Arabs), and of course the corruption," Restrepo said.

Iraq is rated one of the world's most corrupt countries, placing 169 out of 176 states listed in Transparency International's Corruption Perceptions Index, but Mufti insisted Kurdish regional leaders have "implemented a plan to combat it".

'But now, everything is good'

Regional officials also tout an economy that they say is more diversified than the rest of the country -- cement, pharmaceuticals, steel and electricity.

The latter is produced in significant-enough quantities that the region exports surplus power to the neighbouring provinces of Nineveh and Kirkuk which, like much of Iraq, suffer from shortfalls.

But the northern region shares one crucial characteristic with the rest of the Iraq -- the heart of its economy is based on oil production.

The region has proven reserves of around 45 billion barrels of crude, or about a third of Iraq's total reserves, according to regional officials, and its sale is the subject of tense debates.

The central government has angrily criticised Arbil for signing contracts with foreign energy firms without the expressed approval of the federal oil ministry, dismissing such deals as illegal, and slamming the transport of oil to Turkey as "smuggling".

Gebara described the disputes -- which also include a row over a swathe of territory stretching from the Iranian border to the Syrian frontier -- as "healthy democratic debate", but analysts and officials point to the disagreements as among the biggest threats to Iraq's long-term stability.

For now, businesses in Arbil are not worried -- at the dealership where Abdulkarim was eyeing a $24,500 pick-up truck, owner Hunar Majid was upbeat.

His glass-walled Toyota dealership lies at the centre of the city and is packed. Majid hopes to increase sales threefold compared with last year.

At the entrance, Abdulkarim, a shepherd wearing the traditional baggy Kurdish garb, wasted little time debating whether to buy the truck of his dreams.

"Before, life was tough," he said. "I could never pay for this truck."

"But now, everything is good."

Iran, Iraqi Kurdistan to further expand trade ties.

There are signs of growing trade between Iran and Iraq’s Kurdistan Region. The Parviz Khan border crossing in western Iranian city of Qasr-e Shirin has now been named the most active trade checkpoint out of 86 crossings between Iran and Iraq. Customs officials in Parviz Khan say the checkpoint has climbed to the top spot over the last ten months.

Image

Parviz Khan was recognized as an official border crossing in 2007. Iranian trade figures show that in the last four months over 82,000 trucks crossed the Parviz Khan checkpoint from Iran into Iraqi Kurdistan. Just over 250 trucks crossed from Kurdistan into Iran in the same period. The majority of trade is food and construction materials. Iran’s consul acknowledges that trade levels are good, but says there are still improvements to be made.

Ruling MPs in Kurdistan say trade between Iran and Iraqi Kurdistan was one hundred million dollars in 2000. Trade is expected to reach over four billion dollars this year.

Trade levels started to increase after former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was toppled in 2003.

Iran is the Kurdistan Region’s second largest trade partner after Turkey. There are also signs of widening relations outside of the trade sector. Direct flights between Arbil and Iran’s Urmia city were launched in March. Flights between Arbil and Tehran were launched last year.

Kurdistan board of investment

Kurdistan Investment Board Chairman visits Austria and Slovakia to discuss investment and trade opportunities

Austrian companies on Thursday in Vienna heard about the investment and trade opportunities in the Kurdistan Region, at the first business lunch to be jointly hosted by the Kurdistan Regional Government Austrian Representation and the Austrian Federal Chamber of Commerce. The guest of honour was Chairman of the Kurdistan Investment Board Minister Herish Muharam, who on the same visit led the first KRG delegation to the Slovak Republic. The event brought together Austrian companies, entrepreneurs and institutions who have shown much interest in the Kurdistan Region’s rapidly developing economic sector, particularly in the areas of agriculture, tourism, industry and infrastructure.

In his keynote address, Minister Muharam presented specific trade and investment opportunities.“International companies for years have enjoyed success in the Kurdistan Region. Now is the time for Austria to enjoy the same! Austria is known for their excellence in agricultural cultivation and machinery as well as the successful tourism promotion. The Kurdistan Region has many projects in these sectors open to you.” Minister Muharam also stressed the need for greater Austrian participation in the infrastructure development of the Region, principally in the construction of schools, hospitals, roads and bridges.

Dr Richard Schenz, Vice-President of the Austrian Federal Chamber of Commerce (WKO), highlighted the positive experience he had in the Kurdistan Region during his visit with Austria’s Foreign Minister Dr Spindelegger in November 2011. He said,“ The business hub Erbil is not only the gateway to the Kurdistan Region, but also to the central and southern provinces of Iraq. The necessary conditions for trade and investment have been established by the Kurdistan Regional Government with the introduction of the legal framework for investment, the liberalisation of the economy, the speedy development of the infrastructure, the improvement of the financial and insurance sector, and the numerous trade fairs. The potential offered to Austrian businesses in Iraq is large and we have the greatest interest in deepening our trade relations.” Dr Schenz added that the Chamber hopes to hold its first Kurdistan Region forum in Austria next year.

Dr Surood Najib, Iraq’s Ambassador to Austria and Dr Mustafa Ramazan, the KRG Representative to Austria,welcomed the audience. Dr Ramazan said, “The Kurdistan Region has proven to international companies to be an ideal entry point to the Iraqi market, bringing a great deal of mutual success and rich experiences. Renowned Austrian companies, such as Austrian Airlines, OMV and Doppelmayr, are already contributing to the positive economic development of the Region.” Other participants in the presentation included Mr Stephan Brändle whose company Doppelmayr completed two tourist cable car projects on Korek and Chavy mountains, and is implementing a third in Duhok; and Mr Stefan Haidof Roland Berger, a strategy consultancy that has been working for over a year with the Kurdistan Board of Investment particularly on institutional development and investment promotion.

Minister Muharam, along with the KRG Representative and Iraqi ambassador, also held meetings with Ms Bernadette Gierlinger, Vice Minister at the Federal Ministry of Economy, Family & Youth, Dr Richard Schenz, Vice President at the Austrian Federal Chamber of Commerce, and with directors of key Austrian institutions where ways of strengthening economic bilateral relations was discussed.

On the same trip, Minister Muharam, accompanied by Dr Ramazan, led the first KRG delegation to the Slovak Republic. The Minister met with Ambassadors of the Slovakian Ministry of Economy and Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs, the Executive Director of the Slovak Investment and Trade Development Agency, and the Secretary General of the Slovak Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

Ambassador Dagmar Repčeková of the Slovakian Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs warmly welcomed the visit stating the desire of the Slovakian government to boost economic relations with the Kurdistan Region and Iraq and discussing the upcoming honorary consulate in Erbil.

Minister Muharam thanked the Slovakian Government for the visit saying, “The Kurdistan Regional Government very much welcomes the opportunity to have Slovakian companies do business in the Region, sharing their skills and knowledge. We want your experience to be part of the Kurdistan Region experience and look forward to your new office in Erbil.”

The Iraqi Ambassador to the Slovak Republic, Dr Matheel D. Al-Sabti, attended the meetings in Slovakia.

Neide Telecom Helps Lead Modernization Of Iraqi Kurdistan

PostAuthor: Anthea » Tue Jun 25, 2013 9:58 pm

VoIP Pioneer Neide Telecom Helps Lead Modernization Of Iraqi Kurdistan Using PortaSwitch Softswitch/Billing Platform. Iraqi Kurdistan has catching up to do. Despite being the most stable portion of Iraq during the Allied occupation, the autonomous region, led by the Kurdistan Regional Government, is pressing forward with the kinds of infrastructure investments that will allow it to compete on a world stage in the decades ahead.

Since its founding in 2009, Neide Telecom has been the region’s innovator in voice and data services. The company was the first in all of Iraq to offer VoIP, providing support for SIP trunking, SIP interconnections with other carriers, ISDN and PSTN services.

With international points of presence (POPs) deployed in Tier 1 global data centers and over 100 nationwide POPs, Neide Telecom is not only helping broadband and mobile operators extend their services, but also establishing a reliable communication infrastructure to foster development across the nation.

When Neide Telecom began searching for a software platform to support the core elements of its operations, the company’s engineers and management came to the same conclusion. “We felt PortaSwitch was the best possible choice,” said Jihad Ibhaiss, Neide Telecom General Manager. “Unlike many other software products on the market, PortaSwitch gave us very attractive options to create as many SIP accounts as we wanted, and as many interconnections with our partners as we needed.”

PortaSwitch, PortaOne’s flagship product, is a comprehensive, convergent billing software system, Class 4-5 softswitch, and media application server solution. Capable of handling all the call control, routing, proxying and converged billing functions of a full-service digital services company, PortaSwitch unifies voice and data traffic within a single network. Moreover, the platform provides billing and provisioning as well as a host of network functions including SIP call control, unified messaging, IP Centrex and hosted IP PBX, callback management, IVRs, conferencing and more.

“One of the things that makes us different and competitive in our market is our ability to offer SIP-to-SIP calls free of charge, plus very low rates for national and international calls within and outside of Iraq,” stated Fadhil Ali, Voice Manager for Neide Telecom. “PortaSwitch helps reinforce our low-cost, high-service reputation. Through the PortaSwitch customer self-care portal, for example, our customers can access their historic data, call records and active calls.”

On the operations side, Ali pointed to the performance aspects of PortaSwitch. “ PortaSwitch provides us with an extremely instrumental facility to debug failed calls by using call trace messages. If we require more advanced support, PortaOne provides excellent 24/7 technical assistance at very reasonable fees,” he stated.

Ibhaiss, the general manager, believes PortaSwitch to be a key reason why Neide Telecom is able to offer state-of-the-art service to consumers and businesses throughout Iraqi Kurdistan. He stated that PortaSwitch’s scalability, ease of implementation and ability to add services as needed have all been critical to his company’s success.

“All of this amazing functionality is available through a very simple interface that required a really short time to configure,” he said. “We have never experienced any downtime with PortaSwitch. That has significantly lowered our labor costs and helped us stay on top of our customers’ expectations.”

Iran, Iraqi Kurdistan Region Ink Trade Agreement

PostAuthor: Anthea » Sun Jul 07, 2013 1:46 pm

Image

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran and Iraq's Kurdistan region signed an agreement to further expand mutual trade between the two sides.

Image

Iranian Vice-President for International Affairs Ali Saeedlou said on Sunday that issues pertaining to joint investment, construction projects, transferring gas and electricity to Iraq and tourism were mentioned in the accord.

“Carrying out joint infrastructure economic projects with neighboring countries, particularly the friendly and brother country of Iraq, is one of the priorities of Iran,” Saeedlou added.

Iran and the Iraqi Kurdistan region have enjoyed growing ties ever since the overthrow of the former Iraqi dictator, Saddam Hussein, during the 2003 US invasion of the Muslim country.

A senior Iraqi Kurdish official announced in July that the value of the trade ties between Iran and Iraqi Kurdistan region will exceed $4bln this year thanks to the two sides' growing cooperation.

"This year, the maximum value of our trade activities will exceed $4bln and such a boost is certainly the result of further cooperation," Representative of the Iraqi Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) Nazzem Dabbaq told FNA at the time, adding that the value of bilateral trade ties with Iran was $100mln in 2000.

He voiced Kurdistan's willingness to boost trade ties with Iran, and noted, "The present and the future of Iran and Kurdistan are tied to each other. They should always have continued contacts with each other."

Also in July, Deputy Head of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan Barham Salih was in Iran to explore avenues for the further development of the bilateral relations between the two sides.

During the five-day trip, Salih discussed consolidation of PUK relations with Iran as well as the role, importance and expansion of Iraq's ties with the Islamic Republic.

Iranian First VP: Iran Keen to Invest in Iraq's Kurdistan

PostAuthor: Anthea » Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:34 pm

Iranian First Vice-President Mohammad Reza Rahimi underlined the need for the expansion of bilateral ties between Iran and Iraq's Kurdistan Region in all fields, saying Iran intends to seize the existing investment opportunities in that region.

There exist ample untapped capacities for economic cooperation in various fields between two nations, Rahimi said Sunday in a meeting with visiting Iraqi Minister of Urban Development in Iraqi Kurdistan Region Ahmad Abdullah Vazir, adding that Tehran is ready to expand cooperation and investment in Iraq.

He said that the religious and cultural commonalties along with political relations between the two countries have prepared the ground for resumption of new chapter of economic and commercial cooperation between the two countries.

The Iranian and Iraqi officials should spare no efforts to make use of existing opportunities and potentials in line with national interest of both sides, he said.

The Iraqi minister, for his part, referred to the bottlenecks in trade and customs requirements hindering trade cooperation and urged the Iranian and Iraqi officials to help remove the barriers to economic cooperation.

On Sunday, Iran and Iraq's Kurdistan region signed an agreement to further expand mutual trade between the two sides.

Iranian Vice-President for International Affairs Ali Saeedlou said on Sunday that issues pertaining to joint investment, construction projects, transferring gas and electricity to Iraq and tourism were mentioned in the accord.

MASS to invest in 3 projects to boost Kurdistan’s steel and iron

SULAIMANI, Kurdistan Region — An investor has announced the details of a large project involving facilities in the Kurdistan Region and Iranian Kurdistan for producing steel locally and being less reliant on Iraq’s scrap metal for Kurdistan's iron and steel needs.

“We can no longer sit idle in Kurdistan waiting for scrap from south and central Iraq. We have to discover essential iron materials and produce it ourselves, said Aras Abdullah, the executive manager of MASS Company, which as a holding group is well-known in the Kurdistan Region for its iron, steel, and concrete ventures.

Abdullah revealed it is set to build three factories to extract iron from the mountains in Sanandaj and Saqqez in Iranian Kurdistan.

“These plants need iron material on a daily basis and we all depend on scrap iron from central and south Iraq,” he said.

MASS and other steel companies in the Kurdistan Region fear that supplies of scrap steel might decrease, so they are looking for other ways to get the metal.

“Basic steel material is abundant in Iran,” said Abdullah.

The Kurdistan Region has iron ore in Sulaimani’s Penjwen near the border with Iran, but businessmen haven’t invested there.

“Research has shown that basic iron components are not sufficient in Penjwen in order for big plants to be opened for it there,” explained Abdullah.

Due to the financial crisis and war on ISIS, some big Kurdish investors have looked abroad.

“We have some investors who have moved from Erbil to Georgia and set up big projects there, and some other investors have applied for projects in east Kurdistan [Iranian Kurdistan] cities,” said Yasin Mahmud Rashid, the spokesperson for Kurdistan Investment Union.

Iran Consul General to Sulaimani Saadullah Masoudian revealed a “nearly half a billion dollar investment” bilateral project to increase steel imports from Kurdistan Province in Iran to the Kurdistan Region.

“Within the framework of this investment, [this will] create thousands of job opportunities in the plants located in the Kurdistan Province of Iran,” he said.

Abdullah expressed gratitude for the assistance delivered by Iranian consul general, the governor of Sanandaj, and the Islamic Republic of Iran for facilitating the license of the project and giving nearly 400 acres of land.

“Extracting iron ore will pass through three steps. We therefore have to build three plants which will cost nearly half a million US dollars,” he explained.

The plants will be built near the city of Saqqez in Iranian Kurdistan.

“There is plenty of iron in this area which is close to the Kurdistan Region border.” “The tender stage has now finished with an Iranian company. We can start anytime now,” said Abdullah.

“We process 1.25 million tons of steel annually at our plant. We can provide basic iron material to other plants in Kurdistan as well,” he added.

Currently, 90 percent of iron in the Kurdistan Region plants comes from scrap from south and central Iraq. Abdullah sees the joint project as a way for the Kurdistan Region to become more diversified with its demands for steel.

“Nowadays scrap iron has increased because of the war. But this scrap will one day finish. So this project will enable us to produce steel all the time,” Abdullah said.
