Al-Kazemi added that during the European tour, the reform white paper was discussed, and European countries supported that paper to develop the performance of economic and financial institutions.

He indicated that the Council of Ministers will hold a meeting every 3 months in order to evaluate procedures regarding memoranda of understanding with the three European countries, France, Britain, and Germany. The reform process is then evaluated in the white paper.

 Every three months, ha, well this is October the start of the 4th quarter, so the next meeting will be in January 2021.
