The Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) signed two memorandums of understanding (MOU) with the Iraq Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and the Iraqi Federation of Chambers of Commerce in Baghdad on Nov. 11, in a bid to facilitate cooperation between the two nations.
At the signing ceremony, Chairman of TAITRA James Huang emphasized that it was just the beginning of economic cooperation between Iraq and Taiwan, adding that he hoped to see Iraqi companies showcasing their products in Taiwan. Huang went on to say that he hoped for Taiwan to play a role in the redevelopment of Iraq.
The MOUs were signed during the 45th Baghdad International Fair trade show, held in the Iraqi capital from Nov. 10 to Nov. 19. The trade show featured great variety in exhibitions from food to home appliances, and from construction to insurance.
Huang led a Taiwanese delegation featuring machinery and metal hardware companies, and the Taiwan Pavilion was a popular attraction at the event. The exhibitors expressed optimism about the potential opportunities in Iraq, according to TAITRA.
Huang said this was the first time that Taiwanese companies participated in the event, and next year’s delegation is likely to include more companies from a wider variety of industries.
