Rainbow after storm
Since oil reservoirs discovered in the Naftkhana area in Kurdistan, many companies and investors have come to invest in the oil industry. This oil discovery has been more of a curse than a blessing for the Kurds. Successive Iraqi governments tried their best to control Kurdistan and its oil wells. The KRG, since its establishment, has tried to turn this oil curse into a bless- ing so that it could benefit the Kurdish people. For years we have tried to attract investors and companies to the region. Now Kurdistan is a safe haven for foreign investors and companies not only in the field of oil but a variety of fields as well. For the past year and a half, Kurdistan has gone through a lot of difficulties starting from the budget cut from Baghdad, the decline of oil prices and an imposed war of the IS. Through the years and all the efforts made to achieve an economic independence, this is the closest we have come. We have been patient and strong to achieve this vital goal. Even though people have criticized the oil policy and doubted its methods, but so far our oil policy has been successful. Kurdistan is still a safe haven for all foreign investors and the KRG offers a lot of help. The KRG has now reached its goal but the Kurdish people should know that nothing comes easy and this is the best we have ever reached when it comes to an economic independence. We know that after every storm there is a rainbow.
