Baghdad: Iraq on Tuesday opened the 46th Baghdad International Fair in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad after a three-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Iraq’s Minister of Trade Atheer Daoud al-Ghurairy inaugurated the exhibition, which was attended by more than 363 companies from 13 countries, his ministry said in a statement.

“The participation of countries and companies confirms Iraq’s ability to attract economic forums and interact with what is happening in the world of scientific and technological developments,” al-Ghurairy was quoted as saying at the opening ceremony.
