    The budget of 2018 and its problems .. Absence of transparency and economic approach 1/22/2018 Baghdad / Al-Sabah The number of votes that touched on the door of the draft law of the budget of 2018 takes a wide range to reach what it will provide in maximizing resources and rationalization of expenditures taking into account the lessons of implementation of budgets achieved for previous years and should be configured to implement this budget to be different from the previous pattern through the activation of procedures A new quality of governance for its implementation throughout the year and set the stage for change and real reform for the coming years. Speaking d. Kamal al-Basri, head of the team of financial advisers and voluntary head of the Board of Trustees of the Institute of economic reform on the financial situation in Iraq in general and the budget of 2018 in particular, and he believes that the budget of 2018 came under the impact of the repercussions of the decline of financial management, which continued throughout the previous period, Absent the economic feasibility, and more precisely in the absence of transparency and economic approach was the public money and financial revenues of oil "easy to earn and easy to spend, in front of the previous government found itself in front of the financial obligations and lack of economic feasibility, and could not implement the policy Rationalization of public spending, and that the rush of political blocs on the budget within the corridors of the House should not be justified not to be approved, as this flux has nothing to do with the interest of the citizen. {Lord of harmful evil} Al-Basri stressed that "this year's budget was an appropriate opportunity to announce the reforms awaited by the Iraqis, and that turning the financial crisis in Iraq to the beginning of the real start of the reform makes the crisis a real application of the prevailing model. The law and the fight against corruption and the selection of honest and qualified leaders and accountability for performance to achieve the results, "noting that" our situation now can be likened to the case of a patient who is thirsty for early treatment, but the doctor was mediated by the doses of treatment patient, and the fact that our eagerness for the revolution of reform does not cost us only to investigate One of the constraints imposed by the consequences of the rent-economy policy is " economic reforms "The vision of the members of the team of financial advisers in the voluntary Ministry of Finance, which conveys them on their behalf believes that the previous governments have completed several reform strategies and we hope to be dealt with seriously and strong will in the implementation of these strategies: private sector, education, energy, industry .. Etc. There are other reforms that deal with government support policies and carefully review them to reduce waste such as subsidizing the prices of oil derivatives. Yes, there are difficulties, but at the very least, the preparation of feasibility studies for support policies and promotion to understand the citizen value of sacrifice and benefit achieved. Set a road map to assess government support. " Budget and debt He pointed out that "transparency is required when planning and preparing the budget, and the lack of transparency gives way to abuse using public money," stressing the importance of "caution against the continued use of And the continued absence of the vision that oil is a sufficient resource for depletion, as well as that the wealth is not only for the current generation, but for future generations as well, and that their use must be exclusively for the development of economic capital Which is the introduction of factories and the necessary technologies and human capacity building He called for "to start now the development of a strategy to determine the rate of escalation to increase the proportion of the use of oil revenues for the purposes of investment allocations." The importance of education He pointed out that it is necessary to stand when education is not given the utmost importance to address the current shortage of buildings and equipment necessary to create an educational situation that is conducive to economic reform. The most important investment is investment in education. International experiences confirm that the prosperity and stability of the community democratic process is linked to the development of education and culture in both quantity and quality, " Capital Projects And within the vision of the team of advisers conveyed by the team leader d. Al-Basri said: "The approval of capital investment projects must be carried out in accordance with sound feasibility studies, which are discussed with government agencies by consultants on the basis of value in return for financial allocation, and that all government contracts must be concluded by an experienced person to get out of the bad practices that led to the delay And the cooperation and coordination with the Ministry of Planning to follow up the performance in the implementation and achieve the desired results. "For example, the allocation of electricity is still high, and was supposed to be a time plan whereby the electricity production gradually turn into self-financing with the presence of Berna C Mali to protect the poor. " Oil price Al-Basri confirmed the members of the Advisory Group and warned them of "continuing to adopt the budget sharply on oil resources, which suffer from two problems: fluctuation of export volume and fluctuation of prices, which requires the construction of a special section in the Ministry of Finance to study the changes in the price of oil in the global markets and forecast, The Ministry of oil to avoid fluctuating quantities of oil exported. and that " the adoption of the price of oil less than the expected price of the international market health condition for the establishment of a special reserve fund surpluses derived from the increase in the price of oil to ward off the risk of price fluctuations and can develop it to" investment fund for the next generations "He added that the Ministry of Finance should prepare an alternative mechanism to benefit from the oil revenues, reflecting that all citizens have an equal right to the oil wealth and impose a uniform tax on government services. Income taxes Taxation is poorly planned, the reality is that there is a tax evasion of 61 percent, and the sales tax base can be expanded by covering all classified facilities Tourists, restaurants, hotels to avoid the evasion of some facilities by reducing the classification, and the imposition of sales tax in modern markets (Mollat), which spread widely and be added to the price directly and deducted for the benefit of the Tax Department, as well as the cancellation of previous exemptions from that tax, In order Coalition authority No. 17 of 2004. "He added that he could expand the tax base by subjecting selling cars sales tax, and the activation of the mobile phone tax to otherwise. The insurance process and insurance, he said: "The obligation of importers to conduct insurance on their goods with Iraqi companies, and the increase of the activity of these companies achieve many benefits, and pointed to the importance of changing the pattern of collection of customs duties, and imposed on the basis of the amount of remittances and letters of credit, evasion. fair revenue , said Dr. Basri , said " a team of financial advisers had stressed the importance of raising the efficiency of the state management of real estate in order to ensure the achievement of fair revenue there is a high percentage of more than 40 percent of them outside the control of the administration and other division is not the collection of revenues in proportion and measuring Of the market, the trend towards the collection of fees from visiting the areas of religious tourism and areas of archaeological, and the introduction of new quality measures contribute to increasing non - oil revenues by imposing the rule of law and the fight against corruption and choose an efficient and competent leadership and accountability for performance and results. " Detailed deficit and within the vision of the Panel of Advisers of the status of the ongoing budget deficit in the current year and previous years, Basri said he "expected to be a budget deficit in 2018 up to 13 trillion dinars, and that the government is considering dealing with the issue through the loan window, a government action easy to deal with But it has great consequences, and it was better to deal with the deficit through the first two windows to impose the rule of law and the collection of government fees and entitlements in accordance with the laws of Iraq in force, and the other devaluation of the Iraqi currency against the dollar, and the benefits in reducing imports and encourage the local product with See the customization necessary to protect the poor.

    the financial sector 1/21/2018 When talking about the financial sector, you have the image of the three components and knowledge in economics as banks, the stock exchange, and insurance. In the first assessment of the financial sector "banks", they have moved in a single step towards development after the decline witnessed by the financial sector as a whole, inspired by global experiences the best means of development in order to catch up with what started the world . However, its movement is still limited, as banks have the technical qualifications to acquire new technologies and technologies that enable them to play their role in achieving development. The banks now need to invest these technologies in the provision of products and services that contribute to the promotion of development programs and reduce the decline and make bold attempts to actual banking trends, and banks are now immune to its compliance with international standards and legislation that can be implemented with the availability of new technology and technologies, We need legislation to reduce potential mistakes in order to provide successful banking facilities and products . As for the second chapter of the financial sector, it is the main engine of the banking and insurance hubs. It has achieved remarkable breakthroughs in the possession of modern systems due to its rational management ability in dealing with the development. However, it depends mainly on the performance and efficiency of the two aforementioned joints. Perhaps one of the main indicators of the new development is that the bourse will trade the national and sovereign bonds after the Central Bank allowed them to trade through the bourse, where the Iraqi market for securities depends on the circulation of shares, thus expanding the role of the stock market in economic growth. Thus, the detailed picture of the banks and the stock exchange has been completed. The third chapter, which is no less important than the joints, is the "insurance". It is strange that it is completely absent in most of the forums, seminars and economic workshops, despite its importance. This may be due to the lack of development of this sector, which declined after it was one of the most active tools in the financial sector because of the wars and events that have passed in the country, which lost public confidence and non-dealing with him because of the losses suffered at those stages. Now that we are in the stage of construction and challenge, we must return the insurance detail strongly to play its important role in development because it is one of the most important requirements for attracting international and domestic investment as well. A sincere call for attention to the insurance chapter in the workshops and forums of the economy; and the public and private insurance companies to promote the organization of the introduction of a new role. Thus, we understand the importance and impact of the financial sector as a whole in achieving development. Will we pay attention to its three components with one package? Yes, we need an engagement involving the three parties in the financial sector. http://www.alsabaah.iq/ArticleShow.aspx?ID=151389

    Davos Economic Forum warns of possible fears in 2018 1/21/2018 Capitals / follow-up morning With the start of the new year, global risks are expected to rise in 2018 in terms of environmental, economic, technological and social systems. The latest World Economic Forum report said fears of global risk this year rose by 59 percent, and environmental concerns were dominant. The World Economic Forum (Davos) 2018 will be held on January 23 and will continue until the 26th. In terms of potential risks, there are five global threats in 2018: "climate degradation", "natural disasters", "cyber attacks", "data theft" and "failure to address climate change". Looking back on the situation of the world 10 years ago, fears of potential risks have changed dramatically as the world's population has been gripped by concerns about the economic situation, in conjunction with the global financial crisis. Asset prices In 2008, potential risks were "asset price crash", "instability in the Middle East", "fall of political regimes", "high oil and gas prices" and "chronic diseases in developed countries". On the level of risk implications this year, the UN report says it will be "weapons of mass destruction", "strong climate degradation", "natural disasters", "failure to deal with climate change" and "water crisis". Economic risks and sees the global economy forum that despite the bright picture, the fears still imposes itself on investors, although the economic recovery has begun to return after a period of recession, but weaker growth came after the deterioration. On the level of productivity growth, the report says it is still weak, and the rise in investment "is still slowing", adding that in many countries the social and political fabric is badly affected by many years of stagnation in real incomes . The problem now lies in the fact that policymakers are less prepared for a crisis than 10 years ago. Asset prices and is one of the main concerns that pose a risk in the current year according to the report of the World Organization, especially after the standard heights in 2017, "markets are stocks in Asia and the United States and Europe have seen unprecedented heights last year. The real economy , the report pointed out that the results of the wealth effects Confidence in the real economy will be noticeably felt in countries where assets such as the United States and Britain are rife. The monetary policy of large economies was one of the concerns of the World Economic Forum, which could cause concern to emerging countries as it moves towards tightening monetary policy after a period of facilitation. "Therefore, the central banks' tendency to raise interest rates would have a negative impact on Low-income earners in emerging countries ". Growth Service Debt (especially in emerging countries) is one of the concerns now seen from the Swiss institution's point of view, which was not noticeable before the crisis was stable or negative. China has tended to borrow heavily to serve economic growth. And "the remarkable technological development over the past decade has an impact on the formation of economic concerns", where some believe it affects the unemployment rate in developing countries. http://www.alsabaah.iq/ArticleShow.aspx?ID=151384

    Localization of migratory funds1/20/2018 Thamer Hymes Migratory money differs from the smuggler with the legal separation that separates them, since the migrant money is due to the expelling environment. The money that is smuggled is for reasons unrelated to the expelling or attractive environment. Capital, especially cash, has little interest in settling and investing for national considerations in comparison with the agricultural or industrial capital. In light of the victory over the "dacha" and the direct fight against corruption, the door is more open to limit the migration of Iraqi funds abroad in the form of deposits in banks or so-called currency leasing. According to my information, the profits reached 20 percent on the amount (depositor / lessor) according to mechanisms and conditions very attractive in those countries because of stability, which made these countries in their golden age compared to before. However, the government's domestic borrowing with its bonds amounted to 70 percent of the total outstanding debt. This does not mean that savings and investments abroad are low, some of which came from the cash strapped by the Iraqis, which accounted for more than 70 percent of the total cash mass. It is necessary to provide financial security and raise the interest rate and Murabaha for the benefit of the customer and neighboring countries should provide Iraq with a precise disclosure of the money transferred to our citizens that these countries are commercially exploited, which calls for bargaining on that and not exempt from the customs of certain goods to promote the country's exported goods as happened with Jordan The policy of dumping or loss of the country is enhanced by undue amounts in the face of the urgent need for liquidity. Providing the financial position of Iraqis from the host country is important to know how to deal with it; where the host countries turn away from its sources, reflecting negatively on the nature of the relationship between Iraq and its neighbors. Either means that tempt the Iraqi money endemic in the neighboring countries to return will be the activation of government property economically to be a suitable field for investment, and is officially announced to determine the values ​​that express the realism and not just formative auctions and the most appropriate here The return money deposited in the official government banks shall be a first step, provided that the prices are special and by law if the buyers or investors make a better contribution from private companies and with encouraging rates . http://www.alsabaah.iq/ArticleShow.aspx?ID=151306

MP Raad al-Dahlaki said in a press statement that "the emergency law exists in the inclusion of the presidency of the House of Representatives, and we hope Jubouri to take such a step and put the law for discussion." Aldalki defended the step of declaring the state of emergency, noting that it "will rearrange the cards and move Iraq to a real stage of building the state," he said. The MP of the Union of Forces that "the return of the displaced represents security chaos calls for a declaration of emergency, as well as the intersections and problems currently existing between Baghdad and Erbil," as he put it. On the possibility of international or international support for that step, Dahlaki said that "the international support and a large part stands with postponement of the elections," noting that "the declaration of emergency will reveal the true intentions of the international parties." The parliamentary legal committee confirmed on Wednesday that the Speaker of the House of Representatives Salim al-Jubouri is not authorized to propose an "emergency law" for the purpose of postponing the elections, stressing that the Sunni provinces will be the largest affected by them. In a related context, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, on Tuesday, to hold the legislative and local elections at the exact time on May 12 next. "We will not negotiate with any party to bring the gunmen into the elections," Abadi said during his weekly press conference. "The political process must be based on the election of transnational forces." On the other hand, the legal expert Tariq Harb, ruled on Wednesday, the state of emergency in the country for the purpose of postponing the elections, and attributed to the legal contravenes, between the emergency law is not legislated so far and the law "to defend national safety" as a substitute. "In terms of constitutionality, a state of emergency may be declared by a two-thirds majority of the members of parliament. The state of emergency can not be applied in return for postponing or holding elections because the latter is a constitutional option and can not be postponed," Harb said. "So far, there is no emergency law, but we have a law number one for the year 2004, which is called the National Safety Law, which is similar to the Emergency Law, and is still in effect without modification or cancellation." "The national safety law puts restrictions on all aspects of life and gives the prime minister very powers, including judicial, legislative and executive." http://www.alebaatv.com/archives/237148

    A future change to NATO's role in Iraq1/17/2018 The role of NATO forces in Iraq and Syria will change during the coming period, after the defeat of a pro-Syrian organization, NATO announced Tuesday (January 16th, 2018). "The military campaign in Iraq and Syria is not yet over, but it will move to a new stage," said NATO military commissioner General Peter Pavel in a statement ahead of a closed session with NATO defense ministers in Brussels. "It is to reduce combat operations and increase efforts to achieve security and stability." The international coalition against Daqash announced at the end of last December that the number of the organization's fighters in Syria and Iraq has become less than a thousand, after the elimination of most of its elements and the restoration of about 98 percent of the land seized in the past years. http://www.knoozmedia.com/302890/%D8%AA%D8%BA%D9%8A%D9%8A%D8%B1-%D9%85%D9%82%D8%A8%D9%84-%D9%84%D8%AF%D9%88%D8%B1-%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%86%D8%A7%D8%AA%D9%88-%D9%81%D9%8A-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%B9%D8%B1%D8%A7%D9%82/

Najib said in an interview with a journalist that "the Kurdish blocs reject the draft budget law, which came from the government in its current form and will boycott any meetings of the parliament is included in the budget unless it was modified by the government in accordance with the observations that were submitted by us," indicating that "there are several reasons for our position This includes the current budget abolished the structure of the province, which is stipulated by the Constitution explicitly through dealing with the provinces like other provinces not organized in the province in addition to not mention the allocations of Halabja province. "The other observation related to the proportion of the region, which was identified by 12.6 after it was 17% in previous budgets since 2005 and until last year, a reduction is not based on a legal or constitutional text," noting that "Article 121 paragraph III of the The Constitution refers to the allocation of part of the revenues and not expenditures for each province and irregular province of the region and according to need and enough to meet the burdens and responsibilities according to three criteria is the population and the need and resources. She added that "the other matter is not to include allocations to the Peshmerga forces, despite the allocation of other military formations, including the popular mobilization," explaining that "the other thing is linked to investment expenditures, amounting to more than 28 trillion dinars, where not allocated part of the region only 1% In addition to the issue of external and internal loans, which exceeded the 25 trillion dinars has not been allocated part of the region, although the latter will be obliged to pay these loans in the future as part of the sovereign expenses. Najib stressed that "the budget, which represents the social and unified part of the country translated on that the Kurdistan region is not part of Iraq in terms of distribution, transparency and services, especially that there is an important is that the proportion of 12% estimated at 6.4 trillion and if divided on the salaries of employees and retirees and social welfare And the military will not be enough to pay salaries for four months since the salaries of 889 billion dinars a month, "noting that" the government dealt with citizens of Kurdistan within the budget as citizens of the second degree. " On November 6, 2017, the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) considered a draft budget law 2018 aimed at "marginalizing the constitutional entity" of the region, while it showed that 12.6% "is not enough to pay the salaries of one province" in the region. http://www.knoozmedia.com/302942/%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%83%D8%B1%D8%AF-%D9%8A%D9%82%D8%A7%D8%B7%D8%B9%D9%88%D9%86-%D8%AC%D9%84%D8%B3%D8%A7%D8%AA-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%A8%D8%B1%D9%84%D9%85%D8%A7%D9%86-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%AA%D9%8A-%D8%AA%D8%AA%D8%B6/
