Millionday: AS YOU PROBABLY KNOW WE HAVE GREAT NEWS
Millionday: WELCOME ALL TO NEWSTIME
Millionday: NOTE -- THIS IS A STATEMENT ABOUT THE ECONOMIC CONDITION OF IRAQ
Millionday: Yasser incumbent with a view of the new year and the era of economic reform New also highlights the need to adopt the skills and experiences that can chart the way to the foundations of this reform roadmap where undertook a selection of them to announce Ttoaha to offer advice and solutions to the non-binding on the road to correct its tracks.
Aulna much on economic affairs organizations to do this is the role that their efforts have been and are still shy and will not live up to the challenges of the stage, and if we accept the argument to the principle of disclosure and transparency, we have to acknowledge this weakness Why?
Millionday: NOTE -- THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT THE REFORM (ECONOMIC) AND THE NEW YEAR AND ITS BENEFITS
Millionday: private sector knows economically as a force equivalent to the power of the state in the power of money, so find big companies in Great nations are controlling in economic and political decisions both on the basis of this power.
This means that the private sector does not possess that power demands of connotations represented in obtaining the support of state and government, so how can they influence decisions exclusively economic prospects? Because someone thing he can not provide.
Millionday: NOTE -- THEY NEED THE FRANCHISES AND ALSO CORPORATIONS FROM OUTSIDE IRAQ TO BUILD THE ECONOMY WITH THE PRIVATE SECTOR
Millionday: The private capital Iraqi settlers there in most countries of the world means that there is no private sector real exist in Iraq, with a few exceptions,
but accept that description, according to the definition of the private sector, in such a case requires the claim that they are representatives do extraordinary efforts to attract capital and migrating with their abilities and experiences in known their success stories there this role only important to the local representation and change it.
Millionday: NOTE -- THEY NEED TO BUILD THE PRIVATE SECTOR AND MARKET THE COUNTRY
Millionday: Let us consider the fact that he faced the country in light of the totalitarian regime, who camped for more than four decades with the continuation of its laws positivism access remained culture ingrained in all of us how our salvation from this culture, they say:
The Constitution guarantees the transition to a market economy (free)? What is the guarantee under the mess interlocking laws?
So wisdom says that choosers in front of sector representatives but to work with all the means available for the return of your money the authority of the absent, and only Mavaúdh
The government financed public companies that have proven some of the failure of the result is the same, because the concern for the money is the one who actually possessed.
Millionday: NOTE -- THEY ARE SAYING THAT THE PREVIOUS WAY OF ECONOMIC RETURN DOES NOT GO WITH THE CONSTITUTION AS IT IS NOW AND ALSO IT DOES ALLOW THE GREATEST RETURN ON VENTURES
Millionday: NOTE -- AS WE WERE SAYING >>>>>>>>>
Hence the need for an economic forum like Davos Aomintdy Dubai and others to work on a voluntary basis to find solutions according arises Awalraah which was based upon the elite of perspective volunteers to provide non-binding advice to the government and non-mortgaged financial support in order to put the right steps to lure your money.
Millionday: SO THE RIGHT STEPS TO MAKE MONEY IS THE REFORM ECONOMICALLY -- NOT HARD TO UNDERSTAND BUT THEY ARE DEMANDING DUE TO THEIR OWN RIGHTS IN THEIR COUNTRY --
Millionday: UNDERSTAND THAT IRAQ`S CONSTITUTION GUARANTEES A MARKET ECONOMY FOR ITS CITIZENS --
graylnjo: A market economy with a real rate??
Millionday: A MARKET ECONOMY IS SUPPLY AND DEMAND -- SO THE DINAR IS A PRODUCT AS WITH ALL COUNTRIES –
THEY NEED A FAIR CALCULATED RATE THEY ARE GOING TO USE THAT IS FAIR TRADE AND ALSO REPPRESENTS THEIR REALITY VALUE OF THE DINAR TO TRADE INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNIZED ---
WHATEVER THIS MAY BE IT HAS TO BE FAIR ACCORDING TO GLOBAL ECONOMICS
Millionday: During the follow-up to the reality of the Iraqi economy
Millionday: THAT IS THE TOP OF WHAT I AM GOING TO SHOW YOU AND I LIKED IT
Millionday: International Monetary Fund from the effects of lower oil prices and the war with (Daash) terrorist on the Iraqi economy, despite the burden that Achklana went Fund forecast the direction of growth in the gross domestic product by 2 percent.
head of the IMF mission to Iraq said Carlo Sdrallweg (morning) that the relationship with Iraq has moved from the financial support to control since February 2013.
On a larger scale, the Fund in the last ten years in the role of head of institution-building and counseling to maintain economic stability in Iraq.
During this period, the focus of policy dialogue, conducted with the Ministry of Finance and the Central Bank of Iraq on fiscal policy, administration and management of oil revenues,
and management of foreign exchange reserves, and the fight against money laundering and the financing of terrorism.
Millionday: NOTE -- THIS IS THE REQUEST OR ADVICE OF THE IMF TO REFORM
Millionday: He is currently working on the information we have collected during recent meetings to address, and we will put a set of recommendations on economic policies within the Article IV consultation report for 2015 - a regulatory process that we do every year,
who are planning to set up in the spring after further consultations with the government and central bank. Pointing out that it is essential that the authorities adopt a realistic budget for 2015.
This means that the budget should be based on conservative assumptions of oil revenues, should also be compatible with the spending commitments and revenue of available funding.
As is the case with all of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, is the drop in oil prices the biggest current problem for Iraq, which is likely to reduce the total revenue has imposed tough choices on government spending.
Millionday: NOTE -- ALL OIL PRODUCING COUNTRIES ARE HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE PRICE OF OIL -- IT IS NOT A DRAMA ISSUE BUT SOMETHING THEY NEED TO ADJUST FOR
Millionday: He continued to consider beyond the current crisis, the government should work in the medium term to reduce its dependence on oil by diversifying the economy, and to achieve this goal,
the structural reforms will be necessary to remove the obstacles and administrative obstacles to the existence of a competitive private sector and the financial sector is strong.
Millionday: NOTE -- OBVIOUSLY THE MOVE TO BRING IN REVENUES ALL THE WAY AROUND -- PRIVATE -- PUBLIC AND GOV INVESTMENTS AS WITH ALL COUNTRIES –
THEY NEED TO DIVERSIFY AND THE PRIVATE SECTOR IS ASKING FOR A CHANGE AND CHANCE TO MOVE FORWARD
Millionday: As for the assistance provided by currently Fund for Iraq regarding the budget of 2015, which he said did not participate directly in the preparation of the budget in 2015,
but recent meetings we held with Minister Zebari and team experts gave us the opportunity to discuss the most important issues relating to the formulation of the draft budget that addresses the challenges posed by the emergency spending pressures and falling oil prices.
Millionday: and the Fund for the Iraqi economy evaluated in the light of recent developments, said: Attacks suffered by Iraq's tragic, and it is facing grave social and humanitarian costs,
where the number of internally displaced more than two million people are all in dire need of access to basic services. As for the economic impact,
it is difficult to configure accurate idea now because of the limited economic data for the second half of the year, particularly from the provinces within the areas of conflict
Millionday: NOTE -- IT IS NOT A SECRET THAT THE EXPENSE OF WAR OR ANY KIND OF HARDSHIP IS COSTLY FOR A NATION –
DAASH AND ISIS HAS NOT BEEN FUN ECONOMICALLY AND THEY HAVE TO HAVE HELP AND MOVE ECONOMICALLY TO A PLAN THAT HELPS THEIR CITIZENS -- OPPORTUNITY
Millionday: However, Our initial assessment indicates that "Daash" attacks causing serious harm to the non-oil economy. Non-oil growth was already weak before the start of the conflict in the first two quarters of the year, but we thought it would increase a deterioration in the rest of the year because of the movement of trade disruption, and destruction of infrastructure in the four conflict-affected provinces, and the refugee crisis and the decline in business confidence in general.
In addition, , lower oil revenues and government spending to weaken the non-oil economy leads.
Millionday: SMILE >>
And that on the contrary, much of the oil sector has not been affected by the conflict, due to focus most of the oil infrastructure in the south of the country and beyond the control of the "Daash."
In fact, the performance of the oil production and exports are still well so far and we expect that oil production up to 3.3 million barrels per day,
up from 3.1 million barrels per day in 2013, while exports remain at the levels recorded in 2013, which amounted to 2.5 million barrels a day.
Millionday: NOTE -- LETS JUST SAY LIKE ANY COUNTRY -- THEY ADJUSTED
Millionday: He he was given the combination of these factors, we expect the economic recovery in 2015 with GDP growth rate of more than 2 percent, driven by increased expansion in the oil sector,
where the ongoing conflict and weak oil prices remain constitute a burden on the economy.
Inflation remains low, even now at a rate of 0.9 percent at the end of last October, but the provinces affected by the conflict do not enter data derived from the consumer price index inflation figures as contained in the official reports.
Millionday: SO WE ARE NOT SEEING THE NEW PRICE INDEX WHICH IS NO SURPRISE -- BUT THEY (IMF) ARE ASKING FOR REFORMS
Dinar Dave: If iraq is asking to borrow more money from the IMF... Would you not think the IMF would say get your act together and start the reforms??
Millionday: THE IMF IS REPORTING TO HAVE MANY IN NEED SO THEY ARE ASKING FOR REFORMS BUT I BELIEVE THEY ALSO RESPONDED WITH LOANS BUT THE ISLAMIC BANKING UNION ETC HAS ALSO STATED THEY WILL HELP IRAQ
Millionday: THE IMF IS REPORTING ON THE NEWS THAT ECONOMICALLY THEY ARE HELPING MANY

Millionday: Peshmerga forces are gearing up for a fight against the Islamic State (ISIS) in areas they call historically Kurdish lands, following victories against the militants in areas northwest of Mosul.
“There is still more Kurdish land under ISIS,” said Seyid Hejar, deputy commander of the special Zeravani forces. “Those areas are majority Kurdish; many Kurds live there and the areas are strategically important to us.”
On a large map on the wall of the operations room, Seyid Hejar pointed his finger at a dozen Kurdish and some Christian towns that he said should be retaken from ISIS.
Kurdish military leaders say that ISIS should be pushed back as far as possible on the Nineveh plains, because their proximity poses a serious threat to both the Kurds and Christians, two historical inhabitants in the region.
Millionday: NOTE -- I WOULD LOVE TO HELP
Millionday: This area is multicultural and we as Peshmerga are ready to sacrifice with our lives to protect every inch of this land,” Sayid Shukur, commander of the 4th Zeravani force told Rudaw on a hilltop recently reclaimed from ISIS.
In a major operation last month, the Peshmerga liberated around 2,500 square kilometers from ISIS near the Syrian border, down to the Gwer-Makhmour region.
The area falls within former disputed territories that Baghdad hoped to resolve through the so-called constitutional Article 140.
The Peshmerga forces, however, plan for half a dozen villages still held by ISIS near Qaraj.
Millionday: On Wednesday, they captured two strategic villages -- Sultan Abdullah and Tal Shaiir -- from ISIS near Makhmour, enabling the Kurds to link two of their frontlines previously separated by ISIS.
Kurdish Prime Minister Nechirvan Barzani visited the Peshmerga frontlines on the first day of the New Year, to applaud them for their recent victories against the extremist group.
Speaking to reporters, Barzani said that the Kurdish government would bring public services to the areas liberated from ISIS to help their residents return to their homes and start a new life.
