Survey Results – State of Iraq 2014

Throughout August 2014, Iraq Business News polled readers for their opinions on the state of Iraq.

As expected, the results indicate a more challenging environment in the country over the preceding year.

But while the sample size and methodology do not allow us to claim statistical significance, the results tend to show a long-term commitment to Iraq as a place to do business – less than half of respondents expect to reduce their exposure to Iraq in the coming year, with 36 percent expecting to invest more.

It is important to note that this poll was taken before the successful appointment of the new cabinet, and before the escalation of airstrikes against the Islamic State, and so may be more a reflection of past concerns than of current hopes for the future.

As “a picture is worth a thousand words”, we’ve put our results in a helpful infographic format that we hope you will find useful – please click here to view.
