Baghdad- Head of the Federation of Iraqi Chambers of Commerce, Abdul Razzaq Al-Zuhairi, confirmed the desire of a large number of Iraqi companies, businessmen, traders, suppliers and exporters to participate in the sixty-first session of the Damascus International Fair (DIF).

Mr. Al-Zuhairi pointed out during a meeting with the Syrian ambassador in Baghdad, Sattam Jadaan Al-Dandah, that the DIF has a long-standing, authenticity and leadership in international trade fairs. He indicated that the Iraqi market is in urgent need of Syrian goods because it is the demand of the Iraqi public for its high quality that exceeds many of its imported foreign counterparts.

For his part, Mr. Al-Dandah stressed the importance of upgrading the levels of economic cooperation and trade exchange between the two countries for the benefit of the two peoples and facing common challenges.

He also pointed out that the reopening of the Al -Bukamal- Al -Qaim border crossing will provide plenty opportunities for the movement of goods and restore economic activity.
