Foreign firms and investors in Iraq reported $55.67 billion in investments, service contracts and other commercial activities across Iraq in 2011 — an estimated 40.3 percent increase in total deal value over the previous year, according to the latest report by Dunia Frontier Consultants. It follows similar annual surveys which have been conducted since 2009. Dunia employs the category foreign commercial activity (FCA) to capture the dynamics of foreign participation in Iraq’s reconstruction process, and to assess the opportunities available in Iraq. The data presented in this report are not intended to be exhaustive. Dunia’s intent in producing these reports is to assess the changing economic landscape in Iraq, with the hope that the data and accompanying analysis provide useful insights amid the constant stream of deal news and varying assessments of the country’s economic outlook.
