Launched in 2009 and managed in conjunction with the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister for infrastructure, the Working Group on Infrastructure Finance in Iraq examines selected projects and recommends different approaches that will hasten Iraq’s infrastructure development. The Working Group also assists the Government of Iraq in accessing extra-budgetary sources of finance for essential projects that would be delayed or shelved if they depended solely on government revenue, and in rendering budgetary funds that are available for infrastructure more effective by combining them with private capital and the associated technical expertise.
The Working Group:
The Working Group mobilises 11 Iraqi ministries and agencies through the Office of the Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister for Infrastructure, as well as international experts from OPIC, Coface, the Islamic Development Bank, MIGA, and the World Bank.
