A Neutral Stance Doesn’t Help Energy Companies in Iraq


April 4, 2017

Dear friends,

I would like to share with you my video “A Neutral Stance Doesn’t Help Energy Companies in Iraq.”

One aspect of corporate foreign policy that is not any longer so basic a tenet as it was during the latter part of the 20th century is the necessity of being or at least appearing neutral.

In fact, in the post-Cold War world, a neutral approach does not provide international companies with a real edge with reference to high-impact geopolitical events.

A clear illustration of the problems deriving from maintaining a neutral approach is apparent in the energy investments (oil and gas) in Iraq proper and Iraqi Kurdistan (a.k.a. the Kurdistan Regional Government — K.R.G.).

Thank you

Kind regards,
