"

The statement added that "Lobei discussed during the meeting the possibility of speeding up the procedures for Iraq's accession to the Asian Investment Bank for infrastructure, which means opening loans to member states to finance the implementation of projects roads, bridges, ports, airports and railways, along the new Silk Road."

"We seek to implement the mechanism of Iraqi cooperation with China through Chinese companies and the Chinese embassy, to acquaint them with the current and declared investment infrastructure, and to indicate the possibilities available to attract the Silk Road project to Iraq and involve it in more than one sector, including railways, ports and sea and land transport," he said.

Chinese president makes reassuring promises at New Silk Roads Summit

 
Friday, 20 August 1440 - 26 April 2019 AD

Chinese President Xi Jinping speaks at the opening of the New Silk Roads Summit (EPA)
Beijing: Middle East Online
 
Chinese President Xi Jinping said here Friday that he supports "transparent" and "viable" projects of the countries involved in the "New Silk Road" initiative. In a speech to the heads of about 37 countries and governments and representatives of some 60 other countries, Shi promised "zero tolerance" for any corruption in the project, which faces charges of non-transparency. 

The Chinese president was speaking at the opening of the second summit of the "New Silk Road" in Beijing, which aims to build infrastructure in developing countries needed in Asia, Europe and Africa. But his critics accuse him of encouraging, above all, China-based companies and setting up a "debt trap" for countries benefiting from loans granted by Chinese banks.

"Everything must be done transparently and we should never tolerate corruption," Xi Jinping said. He said Beijing wanted to promote environmental projects, while some plans under its initiative for dams and coal-fired power stations face charges of damaging the environment. 

The Chinese president pledged to strengthen intellectual property protection measures and curb unnecessary forced transfer of technology, referring to international companies that have to operate in China through a local partner. 

Among those attending the meeting were Russian President Vladimir Putin, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, whose country joined the initiative last month and became the first member of the Group of Seven to take the move. Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and Swiss President Oli Morer will also attend the meeting.

But most Western European countries wary of the Chinese project have only sent ministers, while Washington has not sent any official. The Chinese president has certainly responded by saying that "the new Silk Road" is not a "club" for some. 

Since its launch in 2013, China has invested 80 billion euros in various projects, while Chinese banks have provided loans ranging from 175 billion to 265 billion dollars, said Chinese official in charge of the program Qiao Wiming.

So, OK, I was wondering WHEN Chinese Prez'dent Xi Jinping would come out of the wood work AND announce the promotion/facilitation of the "Old, er, New Silk Road".

 

BENEFITS EVERYBODY ASSOCIATED IF DONE RIGHT.

 

Yeah, right. China has ANY interest in "zero tolerance" for ANY corruption in the project, which faces charges of non-transparency.

 

I REALLY think The True The United States Of America Patriot President Donald J Trump AND Chinese Prez'dent Xi Jinping ARE WORKING THIS BABY HARD in the CURRENT Trade Deal. POSITIVE NEWS ON THE WAY!!!

 

Yeah, the Insanian "blemish" has ADVANTAGES for ALL to be REMOVED!!!

Good morning yota, 

I’m sure Malicki and his band of thieves are licking their chops at all these billions of investment dollars coming into Iraq. 

They don’t call Iraq a third world country for nothing. Iran has their parliament so twisted an stalled the only thing they want to talk about is getting the US troops out of country. They set up committees an run these BS news articles to keep the poor slaves confused an content in order to keep on with the stealing. 

We had better hope that this so called monetary reform an currency RV has nothing to do with their parliament or GOI or we will be waiting another 15 years...

THESE Countries WOULD NOT have inked THESE deals for debts IF the economics DID NOT favor INTERNATIONAL commerce IN EACH Country.

 

So, HOW, pray tell, IS Iraq GOING to be an INTERNATIONAL Goods Supplier/Producer ON the Old, er, NEW Silk Road WITH a "closed" "economy' Bicraqi Iraqi Dinar???!!!

 

WITH ALL the OTHER Countries JUMPING on the Old, er, NEW Silk Road FROM China TO Europe (AND back, of course), HOW, pray tell, IS Iraq going to LAG in THIS commerce AND transportation infrastructure development???!!!

The Iraqi 
ambassador to Iraq, Zhang Tao, said that Iraq is one of the first Arab countries to follow the project of the belt and the road, noting that his participation in the Silk Road will enable him to achieve five important axes. 
In an interview with the official newspaper Al-Sabah, Al-Sabah said that the first axis concerns the "coordination of policies. For example, Iraq signed an agreement in this field with China, through which we can progress in various fields, In infrastructure, in this area, China is keen to help Iraq build infrastructure according to the belt and road, and will not be linked to facilities on the sea and land, but extends to the Internet.
He pointed out that "China is now an electronic trading interdependence with 17 countries, and I see the need for Iraq to participate in this important new economic facility, which is the« belt road in the Internet ». 
"The third is the continuation of business between Iraq and China, and on the FAO port project, the Chinese side is contacting to establish a zone for economic cooperation."
He added that "the fourth is the circulation of funds, and we have established two institutions, the first is the Asian Bank for infrastructure investments, capital will reach 100 billion dollars, and to participate so far 90 countries, and see the need to participate and join Iraq, and China welcomes the accession of Iraq in this bank, There are 26 projects in the management of this bank, the size of the projects exceeds 4 billion and 200 million dollars. The second is the Silk Road Fund. The capital of this project will exceed 40 billion dollars. It focuses on the implementation of 19 projects and each government can apply to join Projects ".
The Chinese ambassador said that the fifth axis "is the understanding of the people, and the importance of strengthening communication and exchange, which helps the acquaintance between different peoples, and we believe that Iraq enjoys a very important strategic location, especially in the project belt and roads, and see the importance of activating cooperation in these areas, Practical cooperation between the two countries is in a very good stage.

:twothumbs: I Think So, BlueSkyLine, AND The Very Best Of The Rest Of Your Week To You!!! :tiphat:

 

The Insanians, to INCLUDE the Insanian IRGC, DO NOT serve the Old, er, NEW Silk Road via the Belt AND Road Initiative AND are a BLIGHT to be REMOVED!!!

 

I suspect the Chinese are WELL AWARE the "crack" "pot" Insanians, to INCLUDE the Insanian IRGC, WILL deter AND disrupt trade to Europe AND back WITH ALL the Countries in between. The Insanians, to INCLUDE the Insanian IRGC, WILL ALSO bilk AND pilfer WHERE EVER possible so I suspect as You noted is a "piece" of The United States Of America AND China "trade" "deal".

 

I suspect the "entrenchments" to INCLUDE former President Flimsy Carter "provisions" for the Insanians, to INCLUDE the Insanian IRGC, are prolific AND potent. So ....................................... taking MORE time AND effort to "rectify" than "originally" "planned".

 

I find it interesting The True The United States Of America Patriot President Donald J Trump announced China was dragging THEIR heels in "negotiating" SO ....................... I suspect the Chinese are pointing to THIS Old, er, NEW Silk Road issue WITH the Insanians, to INCLUDE the Insanian IRGC, KNOWING former President Flimsy Carter SCREWED THAT UP AND is "demanding" The United States Of America "correct" THIS "error".

 

ALL in ALL, I suspect the "screws" WILL BE placed on ALL associated with the Insanians, to INCLUDE the Insanian IRGC, to STOP THEIR FUNDING.

 

A news article suggested corruption of the Bicraqi Iraqi CBI daily currency auctions to be 15 - 20 million USD per auction. Looking at the total Bicraqi Iraqi imports, it is more like 60 million USD per auction. So, truncating the corrupt weekday Bicraqi Iraqi CBI daily currency auctions WILL TERMINATE a major source of funding for the Insanians, to INCLUDE the Insanian IRGC, AND corrupting Bicraqi Iraqi GOI TO INCLUDE APPOINTED Officials.

 

I am waiting for the HAMMER TO DROP !!!BAM!!! !!!SUDDENLY!!! on ALL the Insanians, to INCLUDE Insanian IRGC, AND ALL the "associated" Bicraqi Iraqi DUE to the Spanctions.

 

Go Moola Nova!

QNB: China's belt and road initiative is a new economic system

QNB: China's belt and road initiative is a new economic system
 

Qatar National Bank (QNB) said a new economic system was taking shape as China went ahead with the road and road initiative .

China signed cooperation agreements with 126 countries and 29 international organizations, and it is expected to create direct trade and investment opportunities for China, QNA said Saturday .

   - 

This came in QNB's weekly analysis of the trade and investment aspects of the China Belt and Road Initiative, highlighting some of the key projects associated with the initiative .

Nearly 40 world leaders and some 5,000 delegates gathered in Beijing for the second summit of the Belt and Road Initiative in late April, the bank said .

According to the analysis, the Belt and Road Initiative is China's most important global initiative. The massive infrastructure program is expected to create direct trade and investment opportunities for China, which will facilitate the transition from a capital-intensive growth model to a consumption-driven growth model .

This coincides with the opening of the China International Silk Road Exhibition in Xi'an, capital of northwest China's Shaanxi Province, under the title "New Age, New Pattern and New Development", according to the Middle East News Agency .

More than 200 companies from 25 countries and regions, including Russia, the United States and Cambodia, will take part in the international fair .

China’s Belt and Road Initiative is the most ambitious infrastructure investment effort in history. But is it also a plan to remake the global balance of power.

 

The Silk Road conjures images of desert caravans crossing the Great Steppe and adventurers like Marco Polo navigating ancient trading routes connecting China with Europe and Africa.

 

The Silk Road, aims to revive and extend those routes via networks of upgraded or new railways, ports, pipelines, power grids and highways.

 

The BRI presents an opportunity for Iraq to achieve its economic interests, and enhance economic cooperation and relations with countries across the route.

 

Go BRI

Go trade

Go economic cooperation

Information / Baghdad ..

The Iraqi ambassador to Iraq, in his meeting with Iraqi Transport Minister Abdullah Luaibi, said Sunday that Iraq is an integral part of the initiative of the belt and the road (Silk Road) for the importance of its geographical location linking the east and the west.

The Minister of Transport said in a statement received by Chinese Ambassador Zang Tao and his accompanying delegation to the Cabinet to discuss Iraq's joining the road and road initiative because of the importance of its economic and commercial position. " Iraq is seriously seeking to join the international initiative, To the convergence of visions among the participating countries, especially thatIraq has an important geographical location distinguishes it from other countries, linking the Mediterranean Sea and the Arabian Gulf, which facilitates the movement of goods and passengers between East and West.

He added that "the new government program emphasizes the need to open up to all countries of the world, especially in the field of investments and major economic constructions related to transport and trade, which contribute to the economy and reputation of the country."

" Iraq is an integral part of the Silk Road Initiative," he said. "The initiative is available to all countries of the world, and the Chinese government is moving towards globalization to make all countries move forward."

The Iraqi government signed with the Chinese side at the end of 2015 agreements and memorandums of economic cooperation and to participate in the construction of the economic belt of the Silk Road land and sea.

Well, OK, ANYBODY that has read ANYTHING about how I (NOTE: I) think about this could perceive how I (NOTE: I) see Iraq as a center piece to ALL this based upon the (potential) agreement(s) Former President Tricky AND Mousy Dung made in 1972 to POWER UP ALL THIS via ELI The ICE Man (:lmao:   :lmao:   :lmao:) WITH the Bicraqi Iraqi Dinar AS THE CENTERPIECE FOR THE POWER UP!!!

 

My opinion is THIS is A LOT further along the (rail) road THAN in the news.

Hey Synopsis all I can think about, and this is not at all meant in any negative way, is Malarky and his band of 40 thieves riding up on their horses and stealing anything they can along the road.  ALA the great train and stage coach robberies of the 1800"s.

 

I understand how this will help all countries involved but a train, road, or otherwise running through Iraq and Insanity could only have the land pirates drooling at the mouth waiting for this.  And the black market exploding.

The "thieves" AND "hijackers" COULD BE lined up ALL up AND down the Old, er, NEW Silk Road. The Old Silk Road LIKELY had ways to address the "thieves" AND "hijackers" THEN just like NOW THERE is LIKELY ways to address the modern "thieves" AND "hijackers".

 

I suspect a plan is in place to be executed at the most appropriate time to minimize interference with THIS trade. My opinion is there is too much at stake to let time AND chance derail the "plan". The customs duties ALONE are lucrative ENOUGH for each Country's Government to ENSURE safe passage of goods WITHOUT interruption.

The Initiative to Participate in Building the "Belt and Road": Progress, Contribution and Look

 
 
Agencies / follow-up morning
 
 
The smoothness of commercial channels is an important content to share in the construction of the Belt and Road. Sharing the construction of the "belt and the road" has promoted the liberalization and facilitation of trade and investment in countries and regions along the "belt and the road", reducing transaction costs and the costs of trade practice, opening up the development potential, and deepening and deepening the degree of participation of various countries in economic globalization.
 
1. The continuous rise of liberalization and facilitation of trade and investment.
 China launched the initiative to push forward the smooth flow of trade channels under the "Belt and Road", with 83 countries and international organizations actively involved. China has signed more than 100 cooperative documents with countries along the "Belt and Road" since the first session of the "Belt and Road" Forum for International Cooperation in May 2017. More than 50 species From agricultural products and food, to access after quarantine. The "Green Corridor" for rapid customs clearance of agricultural products between China and Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan has been positively promoted. The time of customs clearance of agricultural products has dropped by 90%.
China has expanded the scope for increasing foreign investment, creating a high-standard international environment for trade and has set up 12 free-trade pilot zones open to the world and exploring ways to build free trade ports to attract state investment along China's "belt and road". The average level of Chinese tariffs fell from 15.3% when it joined the WTO to 7.5% currently. China has signed free trade agreements with many countries and regions such as ASEAN, Singapore, Pakistan and Georgia, and has signed an economic and trade cooperation agreement with the Eurasian Economic Community (EEAEC). The FTA system is gradually formed along the "Belt and Road".
 
2. Continuous expansion of trade volume
China's total import and export trade with countries along the "Belt and Road" exceeded US $ 6 trillion between 2013 and 2018. The annual increase in this value is higher than China's foreign trade growth in the same period, accounting for 27.4 percent of China's total trade value For goods. In 2018 alone, China's total import and export trade with countries along the "belt and road" totaled US $ 1.3 trillion, up 16.4 percent over the previous year. Service trade between China and countries along the "belt and road", from small to large, is growing steadily. China's imports and exports of goods and services along the "belt and road" reached 97.76 billion US dollars in 2017, an increase of 18.4 percent over the previous year. This represents 14.1 percent of China's total value of services, up 1.6 percentage points from 2016. .

      Authorities have arrested two men for allegedly scheming to sell $1 million worth of bitcoins to anonymous drug buyers using the now-shuttered online drug exchange Silk Road.
      In a 27-page complaint filed Friday and made public on Monday, authorities accused Robert Faiella and Charlie Shrem with money laundering and other charges related to facilitating illegal activity on Silk Road.
      Silk Road, created in 2011, served as an anonymous online marketplace for illegal products and services including drugs. The FBI shut down the site in early October 2013, calling it “the most sophisticated and extensive criminal marketplace on the Internet today.”
      Silk Road users could use only the digital currency bitcoin, which is difficult to trace. That’s where Faiella and Shrem allegedly came in, according to the complaint.
      According to the attorney’s office, Faiella ran a bitcoin exchange on the Silk Road site from about December 2011 to October 2013. Faiella allegedly took bitcoin orders from Silk Road users and filled the order through a company called BitInstant -- which, for a fee, lets customers exchange cash for bitcoin anonymously.
      Shrem was the CEO of BitInstant until it shut down in July 2013. For a time he also served as the company’s chief compliance officer. The complaint alleges Shrem personally bought drugs on Silk Road, and that he helped Faiella facilitate illegal business without reporting it. 
      The pair allegedly split ways in late 2012, when Shrem’s company stopped accepting cash payments. But Faiella allegedly came back to Silk Road a few months later without Shrem’s help, and exchanged “tens of thousands of dollars a week” in bitcoin until Silk Road was shut down in October 2013.
      “When bitcoins, like any traditional currency, are laundered and used to fuel criminal activity, law enforcement has no choice but to act,” said Manhattan U.S. Attorney Bharara said in the statement. “We will aggressively pursue those who would co-opt new forms of currency for illicit purposes.”
      The complaint charges both Faiella and Shrem with conspiring to commit money laundering and operating an unlicensed money transmitting business. The former charge carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, while the latter can result in 5 years in prison.
      Shrem received an additional charge of willfully failing to file a suspicious activity report regarding Faiella’s transactions through his company, which carries a five-year maximum sentence.
      Shrem was arrested Sunday at New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport, Robert Faiella at his Cape Coral, Fla., home on Monday. Shrem is expected to appear in Manhattan federal court later on Monday, while Faiella will appear at some point in federal court in Florida.
