Iraqis eye carabeef, seafood
The Federation of Iraqi Chambers of Commerce (FICC) expressed interest in importing carabao meat, poultry, and frozen and canned seafood.
Federation officials expressed interest in Philippine products and possible ventures during a meeting with Philippine Embassy Chargé d’Affaires Elmer G. Cato at their headquarters.
The meeting sought to revive economic ties between the Philippines and Iraq.
Cato said the Iraqi traders wanted to explore trade and investment opportunities with the Philippines.
The Federation is ready to send a delegation to Manila before the end of the year.
Iraq lamented the lack of information about doing business in the Philippines.
It was suggested that Filipino companies also visit Iraq and participate in the annual Baghdad International Fair to penetrate the local market.
