Iraq demands Turkish help to set up organized industrial zone

Turkey will support establishment of an organized industrial zone in Iraq.

The Union of Chambers & Commodity Exchanges of Turkey (TOBB) will support and assist Iraq in establishing a new organized industrial zone.

TOBB Chairman Rifat Hisarciklioglu had a meeting with Iraq's Vice President Tariq al-Hashimi and discussed ways to boost Turkish-Iraqi commercial relations in Istanbul.

During the meeting, Hisarciklioglu requested al-Hashimi to help solve problems of Turkish trucks carrying goods to Iraq.

Al-Hashimi said his country was open to cooperation in establishing a new organized industrial zone, and asked TOBB's support to set up a qualified industrial zone in Kirkuk.

The Iraqi vice president said his country wanted Turkish businessmen to make more trade and investments in Iraq, and invited Hisarciklioglu to Iraq to discuss business opportunities in his country.

Hisarciklioglu also met Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Mualem and Syrian Finance Minister Muhammad al-Husayn.
