Based in Baghdad, Mohammed formerly worked as a diplomat whose experience spans several decades while he held posts in China. In addition, he was involved with the Iraqi Mission to the United Nations.

Mohammed’s career in diplomacy later evolved into a career as a correspondent for British Reuters, the Italian ANSA agency. Before this, he was the editorial secretary for the only English newspaper in Iraq in 1975, The Baghdad Observer, and the secretary of the Iraqi News Agency in 1978.

This led to the launch of the New Economist in 1998, which was the very first economic English and Arabic language newspaper in Iraq and is still currently in publication today with Mohammed as its Editor in Chief.

Ziyen Inc. CEO Alastair Caithness adds:

“We are extremely excited Mohammed has agreed to join Ziyen’s Board of Directors and the knowledge, contacts and experience he brings to Ziyen in relation to operating in Iraq. In spite of the current political and financial problems that are happening in the country, we believe it is important to restore the economic power of the future to Iraq and provide opportunities for the Iraqi people to rebuild their country.  Mohammed brings a priceless insight into the current state of the economy, oil and gas industry, Healthcare, Finance and IT industry sectors in Iraq. We are very much looking forward to working with Mohammed.”
