It seems that many difficulties are facing the treatment of unemployment in Iraq in light of the inflation in the size of public jobs, which exceeded the rates surveyed globally, compared to the size of the population and the state’s inability to absorb them, for reasons related to allocations and weak financial resources.
While attempts are being made to revitalize the role of the private sector to absorb the greater part of unemployment, it is proceeding slowly due to the inefficiency of laws and encouraging procedures and the inappropriate business environment, which caused the migration of capital and its business owners, to search for safe investments in neighboring countries and elsewhere. Meanwhile, the pace of the shift towards the age of digitization (digital economy) is escalating. Perhaps the Corona pandemic contributed to creating a climate for acceptance of this transformation, and as quickly as expected around the world, as digital transactions have become prevalent in light of the imperatives to confront the pandemic, represented by distance and remote dealing through software and electronic applications In all economic, commercial and financial activities, whether within a particular country or between states. And let us separate this part and try to implement it in Iraq .. How? Statistics indicate that in Iraq there are more than five thousand graduates of software and application sciences, and many of them have remarkable capabilities in production.
It is worth noting that Iraq is a founding member of the Arab League, and I find that its youth have priority in obtaining these services, and the issue requires them first to abandon the culture of relying on the state to obtain a job opportunity, in addition to being unable to absorb this huge amount of unemployment and absolute faith. Secondly, by building their country by entering the science of (smart economy), which means creative youth dependence on their own creative capabilities to obtain job opportunities that exceed their returns multiplied by double, for any salary they can get in any government job. As a member of the Advisory Council for Electronic Scientific Services, I will try to publish the mechanisms, means and stages of training courses, after consulting with the Chairman and members of the Council, in preparation for the start of organizing the training courses
