The only construction exhibition serving the markets of Jordan, Iraq, Syria and the Palestinian Territories – Incorporating Rebuild Iraq Exhibition
ONE SHOW, FOUR MASSIVE MARKETS
IFP has merged two of our most successful shows – Rebuild Iraq and Project Jordan – into one mega IFP event. Now with one visit to Amman, Jordan you’ll gain exclusive access to lucrative construction and development markets: Jordan, Iraq, Syria and the Palestinian Territories.
CULTIVATE CONTACTS AND FACILITATE DEALS. THIS IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY FOR NEAR EAST CONNECTIVITY.
You’ll connect face-to-face with investors, developers, government officials and other key players responsible for the multitude of multi-billion dollar construction projects in Jordan, Iraq, Syria and the Palestinian Territories. The Near East’s construction boom is in full swing. Now is the time to break into these markets, or boost your already-established presence there.
AMMAN – GATEWAY TO NEAR EAST MARKETS
Because of Jordan’s strategic location, open relationships with neighboring countries and business-friendly laws for foreign investors, Amman is well known as a hub for business. And the Kingdom’s political and economic stability has fostered its position as a trade base, particularly for Iraq, Syria and the Palestinian Territories.
Iraqi businessmen and investors. Amman is the preferred residence for prominent Iraqi businessmen and investors. Project Near East offers international, regional and local companies an unprecedented opportunity - risk-free -- to be a part of Iraq’s reconstruction. Palestinian businessmen have permission to travel to Jordan (have free movement privileges). For the first time, Palestinian businessmen will have an opportunity to participate in an IFP event to establish the necessary business partnerships to carry out the territories’ much-needed development and rehabilitation. Investor friendly to foreigners. Foreign and Jordanian investors alike are treated equally under Jordanian law. Except for some trade and contracting services which require a Jordanian partner, non-Jordanians can engage in any economic activity in the Kingdom. Foreigners are permitted to fully own a project or any part of it. Favorable tax and customs duty. Many sectors in Jordan enjoy such treatment, including: agriculture, hotels, hospitals, maritime transport, railways, leisure and recreational compounds, convention and exhibition centers, as well as pipeline transportation, distribution services for water, gas and petroleum derivatives. In addition, Jordan is at the forefront of liberal Middle East economies, and has earned worldwide respect for its reforms and economic initiatives.
HERE IS A GLIMPSE AT JUST SOME OF THE NEAR EAST’S ATTENTION-GRABBING CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS
More than $63 Billion has been allocated for reconstruction projects, and the new Iraqi government is expected to spend an estimated $150 Billion for reconstruction of key sectors, including:
• $17 Billion for Baghdad International Airport
• $12 Billion for the port of Basra
• $15 Billion to construct the Al-Rasheed City near Baghdad
• $5 Billion to build 4,000 schools
• Baghdad Municipality to spend $1 billion through the national budget for public works.
The relatively stable northern region of Kurdistan, in particular, is generating attention. Efforts by the Kurdistan Development Corporation to attract top-caliber international investment to a region that has been described as the Northern Gateway to Iraq are fruitful. A new investment law for the Kurdistan region, offering generous incentives to foreign investors, is being cited as one of the most investor-friendly laws in the Middle East. Kurdistan boasts a real estate industry currently worth approximately $10 Billion. Upcoming projects in the region include:
• $15.3 Billion for Tarin Hills - residential, commercial and hospitality buildings
• $16 Billion worth of projects in Erbil, Sulaymaniya and Duhok
