Our Mission

We have a significant understanding of how the social dynamics in Iraq have evolved as we have been witnessing the development of Iraq, after a long period of isolation from economic developments, since 2009 we are using our experiences in the Turkish research sector. The key factor of making research more important is reading data with the background consideration. We make an effort to read data in a healthy manner with the help of our long-term experiences in the Iraqi market. We achieve this from an external perspective but at the same time by using our internal observation experience.

As Nish Research we aim to understand the needs of our customers and to ensure their projects are built considering the right local conditions and they get the highest possible benefits.
