Rebuilding and expanding Iraq’s telecommunications networks
Investment into the Iraqi telecoms sector begins
Following the end of three years of conflict, reconstruction of Iraq’s infrastructure and economy is now beginning: $30bn has been pledged by the international community, with the Iraqi government aiming for total funding of $88.2bn. Rebuilding and expanding telecommunications infrastructure will form a central part of the work ahead.

The macroeconomic situation
Iraq is a nation beginning its recovery after more than three years of conflict in the country. In December 2017, the Iraqi government announced that its war against Islamic State was over, having liberated all territories formerly held by militants and regained control of its border with Syria.
