The General Consulate of Greece began operating in Erbil in May 2016. Prior to the beginning of the operation of the Consulate, the Greek Embassy in Baghdad operated a Trade Affairs Office in Erbil. The aim of the office was to promote the trade and economy partnership with the Kurdistan Region.
Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Kotzias heavily promoted the initiative to set up a General Consulate in Erbil, in an effort to boost Greek diplomacy in the region.
