DHL in Iraq feature

From the toppling of Saddam Hussein to the rise of ISIS, few countries have endured as much upheaval as Iraq in recent years.

Militias, civil strife and the emergence of ISIS have left the country’s fragile democracy struggling with an unstable economy and a precarious security situation amidst the faltering national infrastructure.

But with victory officially declared over ISIS in December 2017, the Iraqi government set about designing a comprehensive reconstruction package with two clear objectives: achieving short-term stability, and establishing a longer term economic future.

Like many other nations in the region, Iraq is heavily dependent on its dominant oil industry, which accounts for 99.7 percent of its economy.
