Iraqi Owned Business One Positive Economic Iraqi Sign
Many different people operate companies in Iraq and work to start up and run different businesses. In every society there are people that work to help get things done, and in Iraq, in the Balad region, there is an Iraq man named Hashim Abd Al Amir Mahdi.
One of the nice things about Hashim is that everyone that knows him thinks well of him. He is an Iraqi man that seems free of guile and hidden motives.
While he is a successful business man, the coalition has been able to deal with Hashim on a wide variety of issues. Hashim has acted not only as an interpreter, but an advocate for his countrymen.
In a nation where most of the citizens have worked hard to invest their time and energy in staying alive, Hashim has been a breath of fresh air. Many Iraqi citizens have not been comfortable with talking to ISF forces, or comfortable talking to the coalition.
But from the very start, Hashim has been relaxed, and able to talk openly with the soldiers and coalition members.
This has set up and helped to grow a deep level of trust and respect, one that has worked both ways.
As the security continues to improve, Hashim has helped to create many different business opportunities for his fellow countrymen. It is true that Hashim has worked with some of the fiercest anti coalition forces, and he has been able to turn around the attitudes with many of the anti Coalition citizens that he has dealt with.
