In the wake of the lifting of United Nations sanctions on Iraq, and the onset of the multi-billion dollar US-led reconstruction effort, regional trade is expected to soar. Over the next five years, ports, pipelines and land routes serving Iraq are expected to experience exponential growth, as they are employed to facilitate the US-led reconstruction effort. The ripple effect of the $100bn reconstruction program will benefit ports in Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Syria and the Gulf, as well as pipeline termini in Saudi Arabia and Turkey.
