All these are incentives for the government team to address these constraints in a process of change, economic reform and development with the assistance of private sector organizations and Civil society. A member of the Baghdad Economic Forum Amer Jawahery said: We believe the need to take the Iraqi government historic initiative to organize sectoral workshops, including the competent minister and representatives of the Council of Ministers and the Council of Representatives and institutions of the private sector and civil society and the convening of a general conference to discuss the development of a rescue plan for the country is committed to implement. He said in an interview with Al-Sabah that a rescue plan includes developing practical proposals for managing and diversifying the economy of the country and moving to implement them through working teams, pointing out the importance of laying the foundations for managing public finances in a sound, productive and transparent manner. With the participation of private sector institutions, civil society and media, as well as establishing a mechanism for selecting the departments of the executive body from specialized technical competencies outside the system of quotas and impacts In its forms. Jeweler urged to lay the foundations and propose measures to diversify the economy and improve the environment of business and investment and the development of the banking system to keep pace with the requirements of development and investment, and to propose programs and projects according to priority and determine who does what? It is imperative to assume the implementation of each project? As well as the adoption of a national campaign led by the government in the manner of government implementation and partnership between the public and private sectors to develop infrastructure and address the housing crisis and its repercussions on the community situation as a whole.

That the status of the country after the "urging" gives the justification for the continuation of the departments and the methodology and the same trends will return the country to the first box, otherwise what delayed the flexible implementation of the actual government program and reforms and challenge the difficulties that require the faithful to find solutions, while the responsibility of development and reform and development procedures The diversification of the economy is a process ongoing.

" In other times attached to the reasons for the failure rests with the neighboring countries and the lack of cooperation of regional countries.

At the same time must take serious steps in the industrial sector and encourage capital to set up new plants and the modernization of production lines in factories built, so that they can be plugged part of the local need and check the profits with the trend to support the national product, whether food , including, textile, cotton and leather, electrical and mechanical construction, what reduces import levels and opens the doors to compete for export after covering the local need, which will open up new business horizons shrinking of the size of unemployment, and establish a love of work and the new generation system while providing an economic environment that could be adopted as a model for the future. And workers in the sectors of transport and tourism planning for maximum benefit from the geographical location of Iraq and the effects of religious shrines visited by hundreds of thousands of visitors, which requires a special environment to invest in these sites and make them national symbols and historical and the creation of infrastructure has to achieve financial returns due to supplement the general budget and the dimensions of its dependence on imports oil. As part of the strategic plans , we must create a viable economy depends on its infrastructure on oil imports, and then independently rely on imports of economic units to develop themselves and the opening of other economic units and gradually and after achieving successes will keep oil revenues in the Generations Fund, as a moral duty must be implemented by the Iraqi generation current towards future Iraqi generations.
