IBBC’s Spring Conference 2019: Interview with Rt. Hon. Alistair Burt, Member of Parliament


The Minister discusses the recent favourable changes observed in Iraq. For example, he shares his conviction that decisions on Iraq’s future will be made internally, and alludes to the need for economic diversification beyond the oil sector, government reforms and the development of the private sector. Burt also highlights how crucial IBBC’s role is, especially with regards to UK-Iraq forthcoming relations, it being an established, reliable organization endorsed by the UK, both through Government agencies and business.
