Shafaq News / Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi confirmed to several French companies' managers on Monday that Iraq has already launched a campaign to confront administrative corruption.
Al-Kadhimi said in a statement that he met today, several French companies' managers, and discussed with them the level of challenges that Iraq is facing due to the economic repercussions of COVID-19 and the drop in oil revenues.
The Prime Minister affirmed the government's determination to transform these challenges into an opportunity for success from which the Iraqi economy would start towards a radical transformation in reducing dependence on oil exports.
Al-Kadhimi assured Iraq's keenness to create a solid economic partnership with French companies to develop a real transition in the economy, just as it is ready to provide healthy and appropriate conditions for investment.
PM Al-Kadhimi left on Sunday evening for Paris at the start of the first European tour by the Iraqi prime minister since he took office last May.
