Business in Erbil

Erbil (Arbil, Hawler) has been a melting pot since time immemorial. Today, several different nationalities live and work together in harmony here. The composition and style of the local working population reflects this. They are multilingual, multicultural, tolerant, consensus-oriented, and politically and culturally neutral. The Erbil metropolitan Area stands out from the crowd as a centre of international trade.
