An international trade fair organizers hope will attract hundreds of businesses to Baghdad is being postponed for a month because of the amount of interest from the United States, the head of the Iraqi-American Chamber of Commerce said Monday.

Raad Ommar told reporters in Amman the "Destination Baghdad Expo" would now open in early April.

"Our best guess is that it will take place somewhere between April 5 and 6," Ommar said, saying the delay from an earlier planned March 1 to 4 fair was due to "the large interest from the United States."
