The Metropolitan Municipality of İzmir, works to contribute to this value together with its all stakeholders in the city. We implement a comprehensive strategy to increase the commercial, cultural and touristic volume of İzmir. Turkey’s trade volume with our old neighbour Iraq exceeded the level of 20 billion dollars in 2020. For sure, this figure can be much higher. Why shouldn’t 50 bilion dollars be aimed for? Industry, energy, construction and agriculture, the main sectors of the financial affairs between Iraq and Turkey, are also the most developed sectors of İzmir. At this point, İzmir has a great potential for expanding the trade volume between Iraq and Turkey.

Our teams are ready to do a severe work  in this regard.”
