The Iraqi commercial attaché in Egypt, Haider Nuri, said Saturday that the volume of trade exchange between Iraq and Egypt amounted to more than one billion dollars in 2017 after the opening of the port of Trebil border.
Nuri said in a press statement that the opening of the port of Trebil, which passes through Aqaba, will contribute to increase trade exchange between the two countries to reach 6 billion dollars in the coming years.
He added that Egyptian exports to Iraq are countless and most of them are medicines, vegetables, fruits, ceramics, water pipes, sanitation and electricity supplies, whether generators or transformers.
He added that Egypt has a priority in the reconstruction of Iraq, which needs between 80 to 100 billion dollars to reconstruct the areas of the organization calling for the terrorist over the past 10 years, notably Anbar, Salah al-Din and Mosul.
He pointed out that Egypt has the potential in the construction of infrastructure, especially in the presence of more than 800 investment opportunities in Iraq, and Egypt is one of the most delegations that visited Iraq with more than 25 companies in various fields including telecommunications, roads, electricity, agriculture and industry.
