EAME were pleased to attend a lunch with the Ambassador of Iraq, H.E. Dr Salih Husain Ali, organised by Strategy International. Discussions were mainly concerned with the recent Kuwait International Conference for the Reconstruction of Iraq following Iraq’s declared victory over Daesh as well as how UK companies can exploit trade opportunities. Companies in attendance included investment banks, training companies, tax advisory services and renewable energy companies.
EAME’s David Wells, Technical Director – Iraq Projects, commented ‘the event was an ideal showcase for the opportunities available in Iraq for British businesses and for networking with like-minded companies. Although it is a hard and difficult market to operate and be successful in, EAME has provided that it is possible to deliver projects without comprising deliverables and quality’.
EAME has been active in Iraq since 2010 and has completed over 30 projects in Iraq including Environmental and Social Impact Assessments (ESIA), Environmental Baseline Surveys, metocean studies and contaminated land site investigations for numerous international oil companies, funders, EPC contractors, property and infrastructure developers.’
