Shukri also asked international companies to boost investments in the country’s housing, tourism, education, agricultural and industrial industries.

Iraq holds the fifth-biggest crude reserves in the world, according to data from BP Plc that include Canadian oil sands. The government is seeking investment and expertise to revive its economy and rebuild its infrastructure and energy industry after years of conflict and sanctions.
