Iraq declared victory over the IS group in December after capturing nearly all of the territory seized by the militants in 2014 and 2015.

According to the Kuwait Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Iraq will present at the conference next week feasibility studies for 60 key investment projects with total amount exceeding $85 billion.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi previously claimed the country needed $100 billion in assistance to rebuild damaged and destroyed infrastructure in Iraq as well as its economy.
