The 2nd plastprintpack Iraq moves from Baghdad to Erbil

Following the successful premiere of plastprintpack Iraq in Baghdad in April 2019,
its second edition moves to Erbil

For the success of plastprintpack Iraq 2020 fairtrade joins forces with So Fuar, one of the leading Turkish organizers of B2B trade shows in emerging markets.
So Fuar maintains an office in Erbil since 2017 and disposes of a competent team of local trade fair experts.
Why Erbil? Erbil is Iraq‘s bustling and safe economic metropolis and the gateway to all of Iraq.

 

plastprintpack Iraq to be held jointly with the 4th Agro Pack Iraq Erbil 2020

In order to create valuable synergies for exhibitors and trade visitors alike, plastprintpack Iraq 2020 will be held jointly with Agro Pack Iraq Erbil 2020, Iraq’s largest agrofood trade show. Agro Pack Iraq Erbil has already been successfully organized three times. From 20 to 23 November 2019, for example, a total of 151 exhibitors discussed business with 7,245 trade visitors from all of Iraq. The extent to which the fair is now well established in the country can also be judged from the VIPs who officially opened it.

With US$ 48.4 billion, Iraq reports an enormously high trade surplus for 2018

EUROMAP confirms high double-digit annual growth for Iraq between 2009 and 2018

With exports of hydrocarbons worth US$ 87.3 billion and imports worth US$ 38.9 billion, Iraq succeeded in achieving an enormous trade surplus of US$ 48.4 billion in 2018. 

For comparison: Iran’s exports of 98.1 billion US$ are faced with imports of 75.5 billion US$, balance +22.6 billion US$ in  2017/18. Algeria’s exports of 35.2 billion US$ are offset by imports of 46.1 billion US$, balance -10.9 billion US$. For 2019, Iraq’s trade surplus is estimated at 41 billion US$. (All figures GTAI)

Another important fact: With 40 million inhabitants, Iraq is one of the three most populous countries in the Arab world, after Egypt and on a par with Algeria. And with 58% of the population younger than 25, the country has an enormously young and aspiring population.
