  1. Doesn't the last paragraph prove that the new rate is already factored into the new budget somehow?-- Three zeros to be cancelled from Iraqi currency, says MP Parliamentary Finance Commission MP stated that the Central Bank of Iraq will soon cancel the zeros from the Iraqi currency. MP Abdul Hussein al-Yassiri revealed that it will happen by this as the Central Bank of Iraq is taking all necessary steps to convert this plan into reality. He adds that the commission is in favor of Central Bank of Iraq with this decision as this will bring significant changes in the Iraqi economy. It is t
  2. Iraq and China agree on flights between the two countries Baghdad, The Ministry of Transport announced Iraqi Saturday signed in Beijing a memorandum of understanding with China's civil aviation authority to operate flights between the two countries. A statement by the Ministry of Transport, "it was agreed to operate seven flights a week to passengers and three flights of Air Cargo and the appointment of Iraqi Airways Iraqi national carrier," adding that "the Chinese side will appoint one of the air Naqlath". "It was also agreed to expand cooperation in the areas of training, maintenance a
  3. Actually, this info lines up pretty well with some dialogue from Recaps that was posted last night. One of the guys in Iraq who was posting said that things had been delayed while they tried to locate (and take care of) several enemies of Kuwait. At the time, it seemed a little far-fetched, but if there are still folks in Iraq who mean to do harm to Kuwait, I guess-- as he said-- it was a good idea to delay things while those bad folks were located. Makes some sense in context.
  4. I think this is important. From my reading, there have been suggestions that the wording authorizing release of the lower denominations is attached to the Antiquities bill. We can only hope
  5. Well, as I read it, they are using the word "eve" more metaphorically to mean really soon.
  6. (AIN) -The Kuwaiti National Assembly approved the formation of a delegation to visit Grand Mubarak Port and the border signs with Iraq. The Kuwaiti (Kuna) News Agency reported on Tuesday “The Kuwaiti National Assembly approved, during its regular session of Tuesday, the formation of a parliamentary delegation to visit Grand Mubarak Port, the border signs at the Iraqi-Kuwaiti borders, and the oil facilities in north of Iraq.” Kuwait and the UN Assistance Mission to Iraq (UNAMI) announced resolving the issue of the border demarcation with Iraq once and for all after removing all the transgr
  7. Kuwaiti excesses on the Iraqi border; comes under the law of the UN 02/04/2013 09:13:00 BAGHDAD / NINA / Independent MP, Jawad Al-Bazooni said that there were no any Kuwaiti excesses on the Iraqi border, and what happen on the Iraqi- Kuwait border is a natural comes under the law of the United Nations regarding the demarcation of the border after the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait by the former regime in 1990. He told the National Iraqi News Agency / NINA / “Iraq is obliged to accept the decisions of the United Nations to expedite getting out from Chapter Seven of the UN Charter, even though
  8. Great news, Yota. Also, I think that increasing electronic access to banking will help ramp Iraq's banking system up faster as Iraqis who are not used to banking are more used to using their cell phones and doing stuff on them. So it might make their transition to a new era of banking easier. Just a thought.
  9. Yes, I know, Sandfly, that the article refers to salaries for doctors. But my question was whether Iraq suddenly increasing its doctor salaries by 400% could be related to an RV (as they would have more money to work with in the new budget or because they are trying to raise the scale to comport with the new valuation). Sorry, if the wording wasn't clear. It's also interesting to me that the article describes Iraq as trying to implement something akin to tort reform where doctors can't be sued/arrested for malpractice except in egregious cases.
  10. I wonder if this is related to an RV or if Iraq is just going to increase doctor salaries by 400 percent under the old rate? I also wonder what doctors are generally making now (in comparison)? Baghdad / Orr News Revealed to the parliamentary health committee a 400 percent increase on the salaries of doctors specialties of anesthesia and forensic psychology and family emergency, parliamentary Finance Committee confirmed that "there is a ladder and a new functionally includes an increase in the salaries of all employees." A member of the Health Committee in favor Hasnawi said that "the St
  11. Actually, this would be a vote by the Council of Ministers on Tuesday and then, if approved, would go to Parliament for a vote on Wednesday. That is why, I surmise, that Parliament has adjourned until Wednesday --t o give the CoM time to get the Accountability and Amnesty laws in a form agreed to before a final vote in Parliament on Wednesday. That is how it seems anyway.

  14. Well, I would be hesitant to believe this too except it was announced by the Minister of State so we'll see.
