Over the past few years, Kurdistan has earned itself a new title dubbed “next Dubai” after the country enjoyed mind staggering economic growth amid political instability and internal strife. Dr. Ahmed Al-Jibouri who is one of the high profile figures of the oil and gas sector of Iraq had revealed that Kurdistan had been enjoying mind blowing economic growth during the years prior to the invasion of Iraq by IS militants.

Dr. Ahmed Al-Jibouri also added that prior to that the onset of IS era, many commercial towers along with shopping centres started to dot Erbil and trading was due to open at the country’s first ever stock exchange. Further, Ahmed Al-Jibouri also explained that close to 3 million tourists had been welcomed by Kurdish Iraq in the year 2013 alone earning Erbil the status of “Tourism Capital of the Arab region” despite the city not being Arabic.
