(Did I just read that they're going ahead with economic and monetary reform before the budget is done?)
Yes and this is not the first time we have seen it -- Turki held a press conference when the banks notified him that they were prepared with their part and stated he would move forward with or without it in place.
(So every action is moving in a positive direction?)
Yes it seems as though with the economic announcements we have seen that they are as ready as they say they are...and all the talk of their market and how they are going to make a huge impact in the global market...that would make no sense unless THEY PLAN TO BE INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNIZED.
The reforms in the country will not be held up by terrorists...the ministry of finance and the parliament and CBI will still be working and the plan for the country will go on --- they will just be taking care of the terrorism in the department of defense.
