In an effort to promote foreign investment in Iraq, the Commercial Law Development Program (CLDP), along with other key partners, has been developing material to guide potential investors. The present Legal Guide to Investment in Power Generation in Iraq (“Legal Guide”) follows those efforts by focusing on a sector that is in particular demand by the people of Iraq and accordingly can benefit from private sector involvement. Specifically, Iraq has suffered, in the past decade, from a chronic power shortage, which has not been alleviated from traditional public sector development and operations. Given the significant gap between supply and demand for power, as well as the Iraqi government’s commitment to this sector, investment in power generation offers considerable opportunities for investors willing to assume associated risks.
The Legal Guidebook is available here in both PDF and EPUB format.
