On the importance of partnership with Arab engineers, Hindawi said in his speech to "morning" that "this will reflect positively on the reality of development, and when we refer to the development planning, it means all aspects of life, whether industry or sector of agriculture, or construction or transport, "The engineer Dora and the signing of an agreement with the Arab engineers gives a boost to the Iraqi engineer and the private sector to be active in the development process." 
He stressed that "the agreement comes in the framework of strengthening the real partnership between the government sector and the private sector and the government today is working to activate and develop the role of the private sector."
"Hindawi said that" the five-year development plan 2018-2022 launched by the Ministry of Planning gave a good space for the private sector with the knowledge that Iraq will need more than (221) trillion dinars for the volume of investments in the future, "noting that" the share of the private sector of the size of these investments will be 40 percent (88.2) trillion dinars, but in the sector of employment and housing will be the share of the private sector 50% with the public sector, each 50% each. 
He stressed that "this step represents the beginning of a real start to activate the partnership within the framework of the strategy of the development of the private sector launched by the government from 2015 to 2030, facilitating the transition of the leadership of development from the public sector to the private sector after the availability of conditions and conditions appropriate to the private sector and be a basis for development until 2030 within Timelines and stages of rehabilitation and empowerment of the private sector to be a partner in leading the development of the country.

" International arbitration



And on the membership of Iraq in international arbitration between Hendawi that "this means deciding the problems of contracts with companies through contracts and projects that are done through contracts and sometimes occur problems can not be resolved through our laws in force." 
"Therefore, they need international arbitrators to solve these problems, especially if they are with foreign companies. Iraqi law may not apply to these companies, which requires the use of an international tribunal capable of resolving disputes between contracting parties according to international standards." The referee is familiar with international laws and regulations, so international arbitrators are trained in other countries. Under the agreement with the Union of Arab Engineers, the union trains Iraqis to obtain an international arbitration certificate. "

Iraq needs $88bn for reconstruction, Salman Jumaili

Iraqi Minister of Planning Salman al-Jumaili

Iraqi Minister of Planning Salman al-Jumaili said on Tuesday that his country needs $88 billion for reconstructing the areas affected by the war against ISIS terrorist group.

On the sidelines of the international conference on cooperation in the infrastructure sector here, Jumaili stated that the Iraqi housing sector is the most affected by the war against ISIS.

Up to 150,000 residential units were damaged in the ISIS-controlled areas, he indicated.

These areas need around $15 billion to be reconstructed, he pointed out, adding that his country is planning to launch infrastructure projects at a total cost of around $5billion as part of the 2018-2022 development plan. 

In 2014, ISIS took control of a number of Iraqi governorates, inflicting heavy damage on public and private property. 

In December 2017, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider alAbadi declared final victory over ISIS after Iraqi forces drove its last remnants from the country, three years after the militant group captured about a third of Iraq’s territory.

Here we go again. Iraqi’s begging for 88b to rebuild all the cities ISIS took over.  In March it was 80 b, inflation.  

Two ways to get your 88 b Iraq, first go after Maliki and his corrupt buddies and confiscate their billions, second, increase the rate of your currency and investors will help rebuild your country.

I see this a bit differently than others here. The Minister of Planning is making a statement about what type of money is needed for the renewal of Iraq through roads, housing projects, water, hospitals, schools, etc. Yes, they have asked for funds in the past but that didn't work out too well. Actually, the plan fell flat. I don't see anything that suggests the Minister of Planning is asking for money outside of Iraq.

 

Isn't this what we need to see: Iraq making solid statements about the planned and calculated opportunities through infrastructure rebuilding that will bring in international investors, investors that need to see an international, fair market value of their currency?

 

This statement by the Minister looks positive to me and indicates the assessments have been made, the calculations are done for the rebuilding projects in Iraq, and they may very well be signaling investors that they are ready.  With all the great CBI news as of late, this article may very well be going hand in hand with the goals of the CBI and 5 year plans.

I really like what You said here, Carrello, AND The Best Of Your Week To You!!! :tiphat:

 

Not only the foreign money but also the structured know how to get things done according to the agreements for the infrastructure work to be completed. The foreign companies investing and doing business in Iraq can also hire the allotted unskilled Bicraqi Iraqi to get the job done. Win/Win. Needed work gets done in Iraq and there are far more Iraqi employed with monae' to spend AND boost their standard of living. So, the local bureaucrats don't get the corruption money since a foreign company is actually doing the work. Well, OK, there likely will be some corruption but not on the same level as today where the projects get funded by and for the local Iraqi and never completed since the corrupt Iraqi ran off with the funds.

 

I also agree that the Iraqi Dinar will need to be at a reasonably stable international value BEFORE the reconstruction, construction, economic development, and foreign investment begins since Iraq could face huge monetary problems putting out dirt cheap Iraqi Dinar now only to have it in other foreign entities holding a revalued Iraqi Dinar later giving OTHER foreign entities the purchasing power of the Iraqi Dinar instead of Iraq. I think Iraq will want the value of the Iraqi Dinar purchasing power as soon as the Iraqi Dinar goes international and I believe the Iraqi Dinar will need to go international (Iraq goes to an "open economy") BEFORE the reconstruction, construction, economic development, AND foreign investment begins. I suspect Iraq has at it's disposal to sell bonds under the revalued Iraqi Dinar (when that happens) as one way to further boost the reconstruction, construction, and economic development with foreign investors picking up these bonds.

 

Just my conjecture, thoughts, opinion, and :twocents: for whatever THAT is worth!!! CAVEAT EMPTOR, Reader!!! :o

 

In The Mean Time.....................................

 

Go Moola Nova (YEAH AND YEE HAW, BABY, READY WHEN YOU ARE BROTHER (OR SISTER) - LET 'ER BUCK!!!)!!!

Synopsis, I think your comments regarding the IQD being held in international coffers prior to an RV is a huge consideration for the CBI and the government moving forward with international investors and is a very important aspect of monetary reform. 

 

Thank you for your comments, and you have a Sweet Week. 

 

Jeep, thank you for your comments too, but I must say, brother, I am a sister. Can't you see the mascaraed eyelashes on that camel? 😍

This is like asking someone who has not recovered from a broken leg in accident to get up and run. When foreign powers decide they know what's best in spreading democracy for the rest of the world, we see the negative outcome. Going in almost thirty years with no end in sight, they have attacked, destroyed and occupied these countries. Yet we complain about them wanting loans to rebuild their homes and lives. We would have understood better if the shoe was on the other foot. We wait and wait.

Carrello, I like what you wrote.  It was very positive and I truly hope your take is right on.

 

I may be a little jaded from all the years of broken promises and lies. In April there were similar articles and the investment convention to secure funds for rebuilding. As you stated that didn’t go to well.  I too want to believe they are finally moving forward and are ready to start rebuilding. We have posted many articles over the past month about Sadr wanting to help the people of Basra with water projects, jobs and electricity.  I’m hoping that his new government will clean up the corruption and thievery of the people’s oil wealth.  Iraq earns enough off their oil to be a modern country like SA, Kuwait, and the UAE. The people of Iraq deserve non polluted water, electricity, homes, roads, jobs, etc, etc!!!!!

 

A government truly dedicated to elevating the people and their country could happen but with ISIS , Iran militias, (as many as 100k in Iraq) and a currency that is worthless, I don’t see foreign investors stepping up. Not yet.  I’m not trying to be a downer, I believe eventually Iraq will give their currency a real rate, and then they should attract the foreign investors they need to really rebuild.  I would like to see Iraq finally form their government and clean up the corruption.  After the government is formed I’m looking for Sadr to implement reform and show how his government plans on elevating and rebuilding the country.  He has stated once the government is formed he intends to do great things for the people.  With the recent CBI news maybe they are ready to rock and roll.  We’ll see.  I’m in for the long haul.

Democracy wasn’t the problem!!!!!!!  The problem was leaving a new country to the wolves of Iran and their Iraqi politicians who they controlled. We didn’t leave Germany after WWII and we didn’t leave South Korea after that war in 1953.  Those countries did just fine with Democracy.  Iraq would have been fine too if we had a President who had some backbone!
