This was stated by an authorized source inside the Iraqi-American Commerce and Industry Chamber. He added that the items of the agreement stipulated that the IFC is bound to work for the chamber as a trainer within its training sector during periods specified by the chamber and according to the requirements of the program (IFC – Business Edge). The source confirmed that this training program includes not only Baghdad but also all northern, central and southern Iraqi provinces.
The source mentioned that according to the items of the agreement, the chamber is the sole owner to the rights of applying this program in Iraq. The International Financing Company agreed to that and promised not to carry out any training courses about the program without the supervision of the Chamber.
The source pointed out that one of the main purposes behind this program is building and qualifying Iraqi cadres to perform their training role in future, coinciding with the Chamber’s plans to develop the human resources and entrust them with Iraqi hands.
On his part, manager of the Chamber’s branch in Amman Faris Al-Muslih said: “The Chamber was the first institution that worked hard since its foundation to communicate with Iraqi industry men and tradesmen, then link them to the industrial and commercial institutions outside Iraq.” Al-Muslih promised to keep on working with the institution of the International Bank in order to develop the Chamber’s performance.
The IFC representative, Dr. Ahmad Ateeqa, praised the achievement of the Iraqi-American Industry and Commerce Chamber in the field of training and qualifying. He promised to keep on training and qualifying Iraqi cadres through one of the biggest training programs carried out by the company and included seven countries including Iraq. He pointed out that there is a notable decrease in activities of the International Bank in Iraq due to the deteriorating security status.
The program (IFC – Business Edge) is the trade name of the International Products Formation for Managerial Skills Training. This program includes 36 management books dealing with five different topics: marketing, human resources, production and operating, financing and accounting as well as productive skills.(Source)Alsabah
