Dr. Khaled Batal, Minister of Planning and Deputy Prime Minister of Iraq, said that Iraq seeks to benefit from the Egyptian experience in several areas, including infrastructure projects, social housing, planning, capacity building, electricity, health and medicine.

Batal added that Iraq is also seeking to benefit from the Egyptian experience in enhancing human resources in order to raise the skills of Iraqi youth and qualify them for the labor market, and also to launch databases, which are a pivotal factor for development plans, according to a statement from the Egyptian Ministry of International Cooperation on Friday.
