the images and ideas from your civilization, from the very beginning of
time, available to a billion people worldwide," Google CEO Eric Schmidt
said at a news conference at the Baghdad museum.

"Most American
companies are not yet operating in Iraq, and we would like to show that
it’s possible to do business in Iraq, that Iraq is an important market
that will grow quickly, that it’s sufficiently stable," he added.
