Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I write to invite you to join me on what should prove to be a very worthwhile trade delegation to Erbil, Northern Iraq in March.

This invitation is in arrangement with the Kurdistan Regional Government and the Kurdistan Business Group, the leading private sector business group in Kurdistan which will be hosting us to a networking reception and Gala Dinner.

The Mission will arrive at the start of spring in Kurdistan and the KRG are keen to assist delegates in organising worthwhile meetings.  It is therefore important that applications are made asap to allow time for the arrangements to be made.  Advance planning is important and is the very essence of a successful trade delegation.

I very much hope that you will be able to join me, so please do not hesitate to contact me for any information on this important visit.  

For your information, there are no OMIS charges! 

For further information and details contact me at: m.thomas@pathfindertradeandinvest.com  or apply direct to our Mission Manager- Lyndsay Snowden at:  lyndsay.snowden@pathfindertradeandinvest.com

With best wishes,

Michael Thomas Executive Chairman and CEO

Market information:

  • Following an initial agreement between Erbil and Baghdad to resolve oil export and budgetary issues and the halting of the ISIS threat by security forces, the market is beginning to regain confidence and business continues to progress.
  • In December 2014 the Kurdistan Region hosted the 10th Erbil International Fair which was attended by 250 companies from 16 countries.On December 10th 2014, The British Business Group Kurdistan (BBGK) held its launch reception at the Jaguar Land Rover showroom in Erbil. The BBGK was established as it was felt that the degree of momentum in the British business community in Kurdistan warranted the formation of such an organisation to promote British goods and services, as well as British-owned companies operating in Kurdistan.
