Australia announces $100 million grant to Iraq

Australia will provide a $100 million grant to the Iraqi government over the next three years to support displaced persons and enforce stability, Australian Ambassador to Iraq Christopher Langman said Thursday (January 11th).

“Trade Minister Salman al-Jumaili met with the Australian ambassador to Iraq, Christopher Langman, and discussed a host of issues as part of efforts to enhance bilateral relations,” Iraq’s Ministry of Trade said in a statement.

“The Iraqi government greatly counts on the international community’s support in the field of development,” the ministry said.

“There are major investment opportunities available in several fields, including agriculture, infrastructure and other sectors,” the statement added.

Langman stressed Australia's willingness “to provide all types of possible support to Iraq in a number of fields, including agriculture", noting that Australian companies are looking to invest in Iraq.
