Many government regulations and instructions stipulate the obligation of foreign investment companies operating in Iraq to employ local workforce by at least 50%. But without any commitment from these companies to do so, amid the lack of attention and accountability by the relevant government agencies against them, which calls on young graduates of petroleum engineering and other disciplines to demonstrate from time to time to demand employment with those companies.

NIHR called for the application of government regulations and instructions related to work, and today calls on the relevant government agencies to tighten control and follow-up of foreign investment companies and oblige them to employ young people from all disciplines for multiple goals, including reducing the unemployment rate and fairness of graduates, as well as gaining professional skills and experience for the local workforce.
