SULAIMANIYAH -- Hundreds of companies from around the world looking for opportunities in Iraq took part yesterday in an international fair in this city in the relatively peaceful Kurdish north.

The fair, organized by the Iraqi-American Chamber of Commerce, was inaugurated by Nechirvan Barzani, the prime minister of Kurdistan's regional government.

Some 370 companies from around the world -- including five from the United States, 50 from Germany and 24 from Italy -- were taking part in the four-day conference.
