Apply for Vacancy for Project Coordinator at International Labor Organization in Iraq. The deadline for this job is 20th May 2021.
The private sector in Iraq is underdeveloped due to the economy’s heavy reliance on oil exports, an abundance of cheap imports, and competition from state-owned enterprises. Private sector development is a central government priority, but a lack of productive investment in the formal private sector has resulted in inadequate creation of decent jobs for Iraq’s growing labor force. Moreover, years of conflict and unrest have quashed the entrepreneurial initiative of many Iraqis. A poor business environment, a weak financial system, the absence of relevant support services and the lack of a diversified and competitive economy has made it difficult for MSMEs to start-up, operate and grow.
