Cities Law No. 2 of 2019, the real work of establishing them began, followed by activating the role of the authorities during the second half of 2020, and then a directive from the Board of Directors represented by the Minister of Industry to resolve the issue of these cities, which were implemented according to the investment budgets allocated to the Ministry in the past and were not completed. It was represented in several industrial cities in Anbar, Basra, Najaf and Dhi Qar, and the latter entered into operation after the completion of the first phase, which included 105 factories, 60% of which were distributed to beneficiaries in the governorate in coordination with the sectoral departments in it through joint committees with us.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

As for the Najaf Industrial City, it will be environmentally friendly in its activity, with a construction cost of up to 60 million dollars and a completion period of two years, and it will be implemented on an area of ​​6,000 acres and with 20 different factories. There are also factories for carpentry, aluminum, electricity pipes, water drainage, the production of cassettes (tiles) and blocks (concrete bricks), and a factory for the production of heat-insulated ceilings and pillars of concrete bridges. As for Basra Industrial City, it was granted a license to invest and went into effect at a cost of 15 billion and 400 million dinars ($10.5 million). .
It is hoped that it will witness the construction of 7 factories specialized in the production of asphalt, concrete, paving stones and other industries. With regard to Anbar Industrial City, we have completed the first phase of it, and the completion rate in the second phase has reached 95%, and it will be a model industrial city.

- What about the cities of Wasit for industry and Karbala for petrochemical industries?
We announced an industrial city in Karbala for the petrochemical and engineering industries on an area of ​​5,300 dunums, which it is hoped will provide 5,000 job opportunities. two other cities; The first is in Maysan, which we have completed all approvals, and the second is a food and pharmaceutical industrial city in Nineveh.
We have a project to establish an industrial city in Wasit on an area of ​​5,000 acres, which will contribute to providing 4,500 job opportunities for the people of the province in various industrial and commercial fields. suitable and stable, and its wealth in the fields of energy, agriculture, minerals, soil, as well as livestock.
We have industrial cities in other governorates waiting to be prepared after obtaining the financial allocations required to put them up as development contracts, and we receive investment requests from developers (investors or investment companies), and we expect to start reaping the fruits of these industrial cities in 2025.

- What are the state's gains from these cities? Are the privileges granted to investors sufficient?
The industrial cities are vital projects to enhance the country’s economy in terms of supporting the local product, reducing its production costs, improving its quality and making it competitive with the importer, as well as limiting random import because the local product will be more desirable, and these investments will provide a lot of job opportunities that will reduce the rates of the unemployed. in the provinces.
These cities were implemented through the Ministry of Industry and managed by the resident engineer department in the ministry. Most of the beneficiaries are people from the same governorates, and we, in turn, have prepared the infrastructure for them to help them produce, in addition to many facilities that will increase their profits and reduce costs.

- How serious are the military industrial cities that have been recently leaked, and for whom?
Planned cities will not stop at the limits of civilian production. According to the economic feasibility study prepared by the ministry, the factories of these cities will produce the food, pharmaceutical, medical, construction and mechanical industries, and the work will generally be summarized in light and medium industries.
The projects of the industrial cities do not depend on these aspects. Rather, we have a request submitted by the Military Industrialization Authority to establish a city specialized in military industries on the land belonging to the Hittin factory in Babylon, which used to produce ammunition and mortars in the past, and we are working to be the first city specialized in military industries.

- What about the joint industrial cities with Jordan, Egypt and other countries, and where will they be established?
We have completed the approvals for the Iraqi-Jordanian Economic City, which was agreed upon during the Iraq-Jordan Summit between former Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi and his Jordanian counterpart Omar Al-Razzaz in February 2019. Its area is 4800 dunums, half of it in Iraq and the other in Jordan, and working in it according to the Iraqi Council of Ministers Resolution No. 75 of 2019 concerning this city.
Cooperation took place between the Iraqi Industrial Cities Authority and the Iraqi-Jordanian Joint Company to study the technical and economic feasibility of the project after determining its requirements and estimated costs. It will be implemented under a joint administration and facilities will be provided for the private industries of the two countries. The Egyptian side has a desire to enter this area, but the issue as a first stage will be implemented in coordination between Baghdad and Amman.
The Ministry of Industry held a series of meetings last August to overcome all obstacles and facilitate all requirements for the implementation of the city project with Jordan, and the fact that the greatest benefit from this city is that it will allow Iraq to export its products to the European Union through Jordan by investing in a free trade agreement between the Kingdom and the Union, and also The city will provide more than 100,000 job opportunities equally between the two sides.

- There are requests from neighboring countries to establish joint industrial cities.. Please shed light on them? What are the main obstacles in this regard?
All neighboring countries have a desire to establish industrial cities with Iraq, and we have received invitations and official requests in this regard from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Turkey, Iran and Syria.
Frankly, what hinders implementation is an Iraqi problem related to deciding the allocation of the required land for each industrial city because of the bureaucratic procedures, and currently we are communicating with the provinces that have borders with those countries to end the matter.\
