A member of the negotiating committee in the Working Group of Iraq, Ibrahim Zndjeli, told the Kurdish news agency (Akaniwz) "The Iraqi government made considerable progress in seeking to enter Iraq to the World Trade Organization, especially after he was able to obtain assurances from member states of the Organization."

"The Committee's main task is to seek to reduce the difference between the U.S. dollar and the Iraqi dinar, as well as activating the role of the private sector, commensurate with the efforts to develop the economy of the country."

He said it "requires Iraq to open world markets in the Iraq, with the balance customs tariff on goods imported as commensurate with the economic laws in force in the country."

Yes indeed "7" - I commented a few minutes ago in another thread; They say that something is done, when in reality it's still a work in progress. Its duplicitous and misleading, however, " It's What They Does " They'll get there - SOON. 

 

the waiting continues :rocking-chair:

WTO may need iraq to have a internationally traded currency...but WTO accession will come after the revaluation!

With regard to problems which impede Iraq's accession to the Organization, Zndjeli pointed out that "Member States in the WTO insists on the need to end the file of Iraq's debt in full, and considers this a key condition to allow Iraq to enter as a key member of the Organization."

 

This is why I think that this accession to the WTO isn't going to be happening in the very near future.  Any WTO member that has Iraqi debt can hold up this process until they get "satisfaction".  I'm not saying the WTO can't or won't find a way in for Iraq, but not quite yet.  Accession to the WTO is NOT needed for the RI / RV.

 

BUT.....the very fact that there is "talk" about this bodes well.  It's almost as if people in the know are looking towards what lays next after sudden monetary reform.

Hey Iraq, you can’t be a player on the international stage with your worthless currency that’s only good inside your own country. 

Time to step up and take action. 

 

YEP!!!, Half Crazy Runner, AND The Very Best Of Your Week To You, Too!!! :tiphat:

 

I suspect NOT being a full fledged member of the WTO will infer undue restrictions on the flow of trade with Iraq INTERNATIONALLY that COULD effect the INTERNATIONAL value of the Bicraqi Iraqi DINAR for most OTHER Countries who are affiliated with the WTO.

 

Good News HERE in conjunction WITH a WHOLE LOTTA Other Good News!!!

 

I may be WAY Off Base while I think the imminent news about the last tiny pocket of ISIS being retaken just inside Syria from Iraq East of the Euphrates will INCREASE the momentum EVEN MORE on the Good News Of LATE!!!

 

Hey, The True The United States Of America Patriot President Donald J Trump made the announcement three (3) to four (4) weeks ago THAT stubborn pocket of ISIS would be retaken in (2) weeks. About a (1) week ago, IF I recall correctly, The True The United States Of America Patriot President Donald J Trump was going to make an IMPORTANT announcement ON the DEFEAT of ISIS. I am not sure THIS announcement has been made.

 

I am also looking for news on the FULL opening of the Green Zone in Baghdad. Once THAT occurs, THAT should be a HUGE announcement like a BIG OLE NEON SIGN to the WHOLE INTERNATIONAL WORLD the Bicraqi Iraqi HAVE moved FROM War Time TO Peace TIME for The GREAT BIG OLE SPIGOT of Foreign Investment to be Turned ON to jump start the reconstruction, construction, AND economic development for the Bicraqi Iraqi to INCREASINGLY enjoy the "opiate of prosperity" brought about by PEACE TIME practices.

 

Well, OK, You ALL having loaded up on some Good Ole Fresh COFFAE' THIS Morning (too).......

 

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

 

Enjoy YOUR COFFAE' (Tim's OR Otherwise)......................................................................................

Statements are always based on the “ intent “ of doing something ( no doubt  talking about it for years ) - getting around to ACTUALLY DOING something about it is quite a different matter altogether.

 

Being as slow as molasses dribbling uphill in January doesn’t bother them one bit, does it ? 

 

Yes, it’s a rhetorical question.

      Iraq is preparing a plan to join the World Trade Organization in early 2021
      11/27/2020

       

      Mubasher: The Iraqi Ministry of Trade announced today, Friday, the preparation of a plan to join the World Trade Organization, stressing that the accession will contribute to increasing national production and providing job opportunities.

       The ministry told the Iraqi News Agency, "INA", today, that it has prepared a plan to join the World Trade Organization, represented by the restructuring of the national committee concerned with accession, as well as the sub-committees emanating from it, to complete the accession files, as well as to expedite the legislation of laws, and prepare draft laws related to the organization's agreements. .

      She explained that the draft laws such as the National Product Protection Law, the Consumer Protection Law, the Competition and Monopoly Prevention Law, and the Customs Tariff Law.

      She added that joining the organization has positive repercussions in the long run, as Iraq may not directly reap its fruits, but there will be a strong, integrated Iraqi economy capable of competing with the economies of the member states of the organization in general, and the economies of neighboring countries in particular.

      And she added, that accession would allow Iraq to enter into fair competition for goods and services with other member states.

      She emphasized that this measure will contribute to increasing national production and providing job opportunities for the unemployed, and thus 👉 there will be a noticeable increase in per capita income and total output.

      She indicated that the Ministry is coordinating with all ministries and private sector entities to complete the files of accession, represented by the completion of the legislative implementation plan, which includes Iraqi laws and draft laws that affect, directly and indirectly, economic activities, and a preliminary draft of this plan has been completed. .
