Ltd., to ask why Iraq has spent so much to promote the country when, from an outsiders perspective at least, there still seems to be so much trouble.

We ask whether it is safe, the status of tourism there at the moment, if there are any areas other than Baghdad that are attracting tourism and what the state of national monuments, treasures and other tourist sites are.
