2015 has proven to be a challenging year for the Kurdistan Region and the whole of Iraq. An economic slowdown, Daesh and the plight of displaced people have focused the populace’s attention on financial and job security. Therefore, a key KRG policy is to ensure economic growth and job creation.

Kurdistan Careers is the leading recruitment and training fair in Iraq. A conference which runs in parallel focuses on the main issues in the local labour market and private sector employment. Each year two selected themes are addressed as priority.

The two themes for 2015 are:

1. Job Creation
2. Nurturing Talent
