TEHRAN – The first specialized exhibition of Iranian electricity and related industries kicked off at Baghdad International Exhibition Center on Tuesday.

Iraqi Electricity Minister Louay Al Khateeb along with Iranian Ambassador to Baghdad Iraj Masjedi accompanied by a handful of officials from both sides attended the opening ceremony, IRNA reported.

Speaking in the ceremony, Masjedi pointed to the exhibition as an important step for Iran's further engagement in Iraq’s potential market.

“We are striving to expand the activity of Iranian companies in various sectors of Iraq’s electricity which would lead to an increase in the exports of electricity-related equipment and components.” He said.

Al Khateeb for his part, expressed satisfaction with holding such exhibitions in his country, calling Iranian companies capable trade partners.

The official further noted that the Iraqi electricity ministry plans to use the experiences and capabilities of Iranian companies in many projects related to the repair and rehabilitation of Iraq’s electricity network, the supply of equipment especially in the transmission and distribution network and construction of power plants.

“Using the experiences and knowledge provided by the Iranian companies in the electricity industry as well as importing electricity from Iran will continue to the point of Iraq self-sufficiency in this industry.” Al Khateeb said.

As reported, bilateral and multilateral meetings between Iranian and Iraqi companies and businessmen in the field in order to reach new understanding and explore new areas of cooperation are also planned to be held during this event.

During the one-week exhibition, 20 major Iranian companies including exporters and manufacturers active in the field of power industry will be showcasing their latest achievements, products and capabilities.

Iran and Iraq share a long history of cooperation in energy sectors and Iran is one of the main suppliers of electricity to the Arab country.

Earlier in December 2018, the two countries signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for cooperation in energy sector.

The MOU was signed by Iranian Energy Minister Reza Ardakanian and Al Khateeb in Baghdad.

Based on this MOU, Iran is going to help the Iraqi side with developing and overhauling their power plants and electricity grid while improving the Arab country’s electricity grid management system. (1 image)

This is just some sad little PR sideshow of the Iranian delegation to some puny Iraqi trade show.

I'm mostly left wondering why you thought it was worth the effort of posting an article about it here at LF. Is this really news? At all? To anyone? How the hell did you even find it? (Those are kind of rhetorical questions.)

Of course, you will say, "It was news to me." Fair enough. But does anyone imagine that Iran is producing cutting-edge electrical components or that they have an edge in the market for such commodity components? Iran (and Iraq) may be a little paranoid about signing up for Western tech after that Stuxnet industrial espionage and the Chinese might similarly have a lot of backdoors in their industrial equipment but I find it hard to believe that Iran is any more trustworthy to Iraq buyers or provides equipment with superior reliability or durability than the (suspected) insecure solutions from America/EU/China.

“Using the experiences and knowledge provided by the Iranian companies in the electricity industry as well as importing electricity from Iran will continue to the point of Iraq self-sufficiency in this industry.” Al Khateeb said.

So...increasing dependence on Persian electricity and Persian electrical equipment is the path to Iraqi electrical independence. Right, sure it is. You just keep waiting for the punch line...

I can't believe I typed that many keystrokes for a non-news story. I'm exhausted here. Thanks a lot, AKA.     : )

Because it shows that even though we "liberated" Iraq. It is Iran that is doing business with them.

Kind of a waste of time.

Iraq probably can't afford first-rate equipment so they'll buy some cheap knockoffs from their Shi'ite buddies in Tehran. And Iran is desperate for cash too since most of what 0bama gave them kind of mysteriously disappeared into the secret bank acccounts of major Iranian pols and generals.

Given what we know, can we really pretend to be surprised at this outcome?
