Authoritative reports show that Iraq is OPEC's second-largest crude oil producer and holds the fifth-largest proved crude oil reserves in the world. And Iraq is developing its oil fields and expanding infrastructure capacity in the south to accommodate more production growth. Large-scale increases in oil production would also require large increases in electric power generation. Significant upgrades to the electricity sector would be needed. To achieve this, reliable partnership and excellent investment and financing solutions are needed.
Johnson Jiang, President of Jereh Mid-East Region, made a keynote speech in front of more than 200 participants representing Basra’s thriving industries. He shared Jereh's best practice in oil & gas, power and environment industry and what it can bring to the local industries, saying that: "The China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative offers a unique opportunity for development and social progress among B&R countries. Jereh can provide flexible investment and financing mode to help Iraqi customers build a reliable and secure project. We also collaborate with global partners to provide customers with integrated solutions covering investment and financing, turnkey engineering, technical services and equipment manufacturing."
