“We started off in 1977 as a textiles importing company,” explains Mr. Al Majidi. “We imported men’s and women’s clothing from South Korea, Japan and Taiwan until 1985, when we started in the food business, with tea and sugar. In 2002 we started with construction and investment by building a shopping mall and hotel,” he says.
The pièce de résistance in the Hewa
Group’s portfolio is the Majidi Mall. It is Iraq’s most entertaining shopping center with more than 67 shops over three floors.
The center is located in Erbil, the Kurdistan capital and main metropolitan area, which is a mecca for all fashionistas and food lovers.
