The purchase of a box of Iraqi dates still comes fairly high on the shopping list of most Gulf families. The Iraqi date industry mirrors its country's turbulent history. The war years, debilitating sanctions and business conditions that would tax the strength of even the most persistent entrepreneur have all taken their toll, making the modern. Iraqi date industry a shadow of what it once was. Yet, despite the hardships, the industry continued to thrive in a low-key, persistent sort of way. Dates are a symbol of economic revival in Iraq.
