The occupying Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) in Baghdad is currently in the process of awarding over $18 billion dollars in new contracts for the continued reconstruction of Iraq. This is in addition to the billions of dollars in projects that have previously been implemented over the past year. 


The Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) and the US Commercial Service of the US Consulate General in Dubai are hosting on a program on opportunities for subcontractors in Iraq on April 20, 2004.  


Iraq Now: Opportunities for Subcontractors will feature eight prime contractors who have been awarded 12 major CPA contracts over the past two months valued at $6.7 billion. This is one of the largest gatherings of prime contractors to date and is intended to provide companies in the United Arab Emirates UAE and around the Gulf with information on how to become a subcontractor on these projects.  


These companies will provide an overview of their respective projects in Iraq and share a perspective on what it takes to be a subcontractor. The firms will also discuss their specific subcontracting needs and how attendees to the program can become involved in being a part of this process.  


Additionally, the program will feature the Deputy Director of the Coalition Provisional Authority’s Project Management Office who will provide an update on major projects and major contracts awarded to date and plans for the future. — (
