As part of what it does in terms of embracing high-potential Entrepreneurs in the Middle East specifically in Iraq, INNOVEST Middle East participated in the IBBC Tech Forum as a main sponsor that was held at The Address Dubai Marina on the 8th of December, 2019.
The forum that was entitled “Together we build Iraq” gathered experienced political-industrial figures working in the Logistics sector in Iraq to discuss ways to improve the situation in Iraq and rebuild its economy. The focus was mainly on the major problems Iraqis are suffering from including lack of housing, pollution, poverty, and corrupt regulatory and financial systems, trying to explore the role of logistics in moving the country to a better status.
Distinguished speakers included H.E Mr Abdulla Ahmed Al Saleh, under-secretary Foreign Trade and Industry UAE Ministry of Economy, Dr Dara Rashid, senior deputy minister of housing construction and municipalities GOI, Mr Talib Abdullah Bayesh, deputy Minister of Transport and Mr Simon Penney– HM Trade Commissioner for the Middle East, along with Baroness Nicholson, President of IBBC and Prime Minister’s Trade Envoy to Iraq, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan.
Bassam Falah – CEO of INNOVEST Middle East presented Ruwwad Al Iraq and how this 8-month program has generated prosperity on the Iraqi commune. Surprisingly enough, the platform is tracing its existence on every young Iraqi who is willing to revert to the private sector instead of public one and achieve a pending dream that has always been in the imaginary world.
Registration to Ruwwad Al Iraq started on the 1st of December, 2019 and will continue to the end of January 2020. Registration is online through the following link:
