Workspace provider Regus has announced the opening of a new hub in Iraq.

The new centre in Erbil, Kurdistan will support the activities of companies in the region, particularly in the fields of oil and gas, engineering and technology.

Regus now has a presence in 105 countries.

Regus CEO Mark Dixon, said: “In Iraq, as in other new markets, businesses need flexibility, agility and the right location to succeed. And now Iraq is the 105th country in which Regus is offering them exactly those benefits.

“As a result of Regus’ phenomenal level of global growth and coverage, more than 2 million Regus customers have unparalleled opportunities to do business wherever and whenever they want. Whether they’re a multinational or a young entrepreneur, these opportunities will further increase for them in 2015, as we add new countries, cities, districts and transport hubs to our global network.”

The launch in Iraq advances Regus’ strategy of global growth. In 2014 it added over 450 new locations to its global network, and the strategy continues. Further new launches planned for 2015 include extending the Regus network to its 106th country, Brunei – again, offering customers growth opportunities in sectors from oil & gas to technology.
