UAE 27-28 February 2007

Following on from the success of the Iraq Security, Technology & Communications (ISTC) Summit in September 2006, the Iraqi Government has requested that a second event takes place to tackle Iraq’s key ICT & Education requirements.

Hence we are proud to announce Iraq’s ICT & Education Summit to take place in the UAE, 27-28 February 2007.


A central pillar of Iraqi Government strategy is to form and strengthen relationships with leading international operators who can bring best in breed technology, training and management skills to the country.

The Iraq Development Program (IDP) is proud of its achievements in bringing the leading Iraqi Government decision makers to a safe and secure environment to spend time meeting companies who can offer practical and technological solutions to improve security and communications. The first ISTC Summit had a high quality Iraqi delegation of over 40 officials from both the Central government and the Kurdistan Regional Government.

The Iraq ICT & Education Summit will be hosted by:
Ministry of Communications
HE Mohammed Tawfiq Allawi

The Summit will also bring in the key players who are now playing an active role in Iraq’s education system, including USAID and UNESCO.

Meetings-Based Summit

The success of the Iraq Development Program is borne out of our ability to bring the most senior Government decision-makers to the table to hold private one-to-one meetings with international delegates.

Half of the Summit programme will be devoted to private ministerial meetings. Meetings will be scheduled for 30 minutes. Further benefits are available to sponsors as outlined on the participation ratecard.

The ministries are extremely keen to meet organisations who can fulfill the requirements of their most pertinent funded projects.
