“Local insurance regulations in Iraq, in comparison to international practices, are still in their infant stages. Nevertheless, tremendous potential exists to develop this industry and its regulatory environment,” explains Ayad Mirza, Managing Partner, Deloitte Iraq.
“A steady increase in population figures and a prospective growing economy in a reconstruction phase of Iraq, following the liberation announcement made last December 2017 by the prime minister of Iraq, are likely to attract new players into the Iraq market,” he added.
