Let’s not forget, the IMF also stated Iraq would RV the IQD in June 2016. Articles Archived somewhere, haven’t a clue where, though.

 

I based a decision on that news, luckily it didn’t come back on me and bite me in the Azz, but I did take a hit, though. The one time, never again will I trust that sort of a “ reliable source.”

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has issued a low-level assessment of the labor force in Iraq

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has issued a low-level assessment of the labor force in Iraq



 Twilight News    
 38 minutes ago

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) said the unemployment rate of Iraq's youth is more than 40 percent. 
"The rate of women outside the labor force in Iraq is around 85 percent," the report said. 
Security tensions in Iraq since 2003 have reduced the size of the country's economy and productive sectors and driven overseas investments. 
The report of the IMF pointed to the rise in youth unemployment by international standards in many countries in the Middle East, North Africa, Afghanistan and Pakistan. 
"It is necessary for countries to distribute the fruits of prosperity to all, in order to reduce the unemployment rate." 
A report issued by the Central Bureau of Statistics in March reported that 22 percent of all women in the country are unemployed.
The total unemployment rate in Iraq is more than 23 percent, which is a significant increase from the rates recorded before the control of the organization, "Daash" terrorist, two thirds of Iraq's middle of 2014, which amounted to 19 percent.

....Did Iraq ever approve the 2017 budget???? I think Iraq went the entire year, last year without an approved budget..

The GOI approved the 2017 budget. However, after the second review of the IMF on the 2016 SBA, a supplemental budget was introduced and needed to be passed. Thus giving the illusion the 2017 budget had not been passed. This supplemental budget for 2017 was done at the behest of the IMF and had it not been passed, Iraq would have found themselves in violation of the agreement and the RV would have been put off, potentially, for another 5 to 10 years. Even now Iraq is coming close to violations of the 2016 SBA but is getting by with waivers the IMF are signing off on.

Iraq Economic Forecast

Iraq Economic Outlook

January 8, 2019

In the third quarter of 2018, the Iraqi economy grew at a meager rate over the same period a year earlier despite strong oil production and elevated prices for the black gold through late September. Oil production picked up noticeably in the quarter, but production moderated in October and November—partly due to bad weather in the Gulf region—which, coupled with plunging oil prices, will have dragged on the economy in the fourth quarter. In more positive news, oil exports jumped in December according to the oil ministry, despite the OPEC+ production curb. Exports benefited from the resumption of activity at the Kirkuk oil fields after a year of dormancy, which should provide some stimulus to the economy despite low prices.

Iraq Economic Growth

Downside risks remain abound. Iraq is a key supplier of oil to China, and a prolonged economic slowdown there would dent Iraq’s economy. Moreover, low oil prices risk Iraq’s postwar recovery and rebuilding efforts. A potential resurgence of armed conflict further clouds the outlook. Focus Economics panelists expect growth of 4.6% in 2019, which is down 0.2 percentage points from last month’s forecast, and 3.4% in 2020.
