PMO to Participate in the Destination Baghdad Exposition

Baghdad, 5 February 2004 -- The Destination Baghdad Exposition, or DBX, has attracted another major participant.

The Coalition Provisional Authority’s Program Management Office (PMO) will participate in the expo to help Iraqi business and possible sub-contractors meet with prime contractors at the exhibition.

These prime contractors, scheduled to be named in mid-March, will send representatives to the event at the Baghdad International Fairgrounds Apr. 5-8 to find companies with which to subcontract more than $4 billion in reconstruction work for Iraq.

“This will be a great opportunity for the Iraqi businesses in both construction and non-construction to network and interact with the prime contractors to offer their services for work,” said RADM David J. Nash, USN (Ret.), Director of the PMO.

“DBX is a forum for the beginning of business relationships between Iraqi companies and many of the largest firms in the world,” said Eric Nigh with the Iraqi American Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The Chamber is the organizer of this first-of-its-kind event in Baghdad.

Ninety companies from Korea, Germany, the United States, and the United Kingdom have already committed to setting up displays and sending representatives to the DBX, according to Nigh. More than 100 additional companies have expressed interest in attending. Each Iraqi government ministry will also have a display.

Other events surrounding the exhibition will give businessmen the chance to develop business networks and contacts, Nigh said.
