Otak hosted representatives of the Republic of Iraq earlier this month at our Portland, Oregon office. The Iraqi Delegation was visiting as part of the U.S. State Department International Leadership Program under the sponsorship of the World Affairs Council of Oregon. Republic of Iraq visitors were representatives of their country’s Ministry of Oil, Diwaniyan Governate, and Diyala Province.

Otak Director of Contracting Shawn Goodpaster and Vice President Brian Burby made a presentation to our Iraqi guests entitled American Professional Services Consulting and Construction Contracting: An Overview. A wide range and depth of questions were posed by our Iraqi guests posed and answered by Shawn and Brian benefitting all who participated.

Our thanks to World Affairs Council of Oregon Director Ms. Amy Barrs for the opportunity to engage with the Iraqi Delegation. We appreciate this and previous international visitor hosting opportunities (e.g., the Afghanistan and Pakistan Delegation visit to Otak in 2015) to exchange ideas with visitors from around the world!
