This is what makes me crazy 😜 Iraq is a Gold Mine Of Financial opportunity with countless BILLIONS on the table and yet there’s an obstructionist criminal element bent on stealing as much money 💰 as they can grab with their greasy little hands. All the while not giving a damn about the country or it’s people....WTF !!!!!!!!!!!

This is what I heard:

 

Doing business in Iraq is not easy, yet it is high risk, high rewards.

Security environment has stabilized, but bureaucracy is a problem, which is improving, to be fair.

Government has reduced bureaucratic impediments.

Corruption remains a major problem, especially for international investors, but Iraq is a highly lucrative market and has a lot of potential.

Many opportunities, great returns.

 

Totally shocking and news to me.  I had no idea about any of this.  Sounds absolutely hopeless.

Makes me wonder why some people are wasting their time, hanging around here, when the RV is such a long way off.

I gotta stop smokin' that hopium'.  😂

 

 P.S.  It was an excellent interview.

All the countries of the world  ( incl US, EU, Europe, regional neighboring countries, Russia, China) are scrambling to get in..... and then they are few haters who think Iraq is not the place to be.
