Iraq buys ten 787 Dreamliners

Iraq has signed a deal with Boeing to buy 10 787 Dreamliners on behalf of its flag carrier, Iraqi Airways, the National has reported. The contract was reported on Boeing's orders and deliveries website this week, although the deal was apparently concluded on December 22. The aircraft are worth a total of $1.7bn at list prices, but after standard discounts the Iraqi deal is probably worth $1.1bn, the newspaper reported, citing Avitas, a US-based aircraft valuation firm.

Iraq is a lost cause, the current polititians are corrupt and very unrepresantative of the hopes and aspires of the people. and cases like this prove that the govt is a puppett of America, Iraq is a colony of america by all standards. Why is it buying such planes when the money could be better used elsewhere.

that is better as the clean water will benefit the people, unlike the dreamliner planes

Iraq is actually an emerging market with enormous potential, and keep your political commentary to yourself. This is a Iraq projects thread and not Iraq politics. If you have nothing constructive to say then don't say anything at all. :eek:hno:

But this has no thing to do with fact that Iraqi Airways, one of the oldest airlines of the Middle East, currently owns just two aircraft and leases a limited number of others.

Iraq to seek bids in April for $6 bln port project
Mon Mar 15, 2010 8:59pm IST

BAGHDAD, March 15 (Reuters) - Iraq will next month invite foreign firms to submit bids for the planned construction of a $6 billion port south of Basra, which together with a new rail system will create a regional transport conduit to rival the Suez Canal, officials say.
Iraq is also seeking investors to build 8,000 km (4,970 miles of new rail line, including a $3 billion railway network around Baghdad.

Constructing a new port and expanding the country's existing 2,000 km (1,200 miles) of railway is part of a drive to modernise public infrastructure and kick-start Iraq's economy now that major new oil contracts have been signed.

"This port will be considered the 10th most important in the world because it will connect the Gulf with northern Europe," Transport Minister Amer Abdul-Jabbar told Reuters on Sunday.

The port, to be built on the Gulf south of the city of Basra, would enable the world's biggest ships to dock in Iraq, he said, as it will have a depth of 17 metres (55 feet.

Goods, once unloaded at the new port, would then be loaded onto the new railway system and reach Europe overland more quickly than ships might reach Egypt's Suez Canal, which connects the Mediterranean to the Red Sea.

"This will change the road map for world transport policy ... This dry channel would be a shorter, cheaper and safer alternative," Abdul-Jabbar said.

The port, to be called 'Grand Faw', will be constructed in two three-year stages. It will include 7,000 metres (23,000 feet) of dock ready to receive container ships. The dock for general cargo would be 3,500 metres (11,500 feet). (Reporting by Aseel Kami; Editing by Susan Fenton)

all public construction projects in Iraq are tendered for biding. The company with the most attractive terms are chose to implement a given project. Countries are not chosen to build projects. Only companies are chosen.

However. Companies from certain countries are favoured due to their record in a given fields. For example. Australian agricultural companies are often favoured due to their history in good water management and technologies used against desertification etc.
