The golden dream is a slogan for a joyful celebration and an overwhelming joy that was held on a beautiful Iraqi evening sponsored by the Central Bank, the Department of Non-Governmental Organizations and the Association of Banks, which was inaugurated by the Governor of the Central Bank to select 3 young winners out of 10 who reached the final rounds of charitable and humanitarian projects out of a total of 2,400 young people who participated in the competition from various Iraqi governorates The winning youth and makers of hope were honored. The Governor announced in the celebration the provision of financial support to all the youth who reached the final stages and the distribution of prizes won by the successful and pioneering projects presented by promising youth in various fields.
The winning projects were selected by a jury of specialists and experts. These projects were distributed in multiple areas that dealt with societal and humanitarian problems, and all of these projects are pioneering and innovative projects that provide great services to the community.
What is important in the celebration is to support the Tamkeen Fund and the attendance of members of the Fund’s Board of Directors, the President of the Association of Iraqi Private Banks, the Director General of the Non-Governmental Organizations Department and the Executive Director of the Association, and that this initiative comes to confirm the goal of the Tamkeen Fund initiative in sponsoring, supporting and attributing to community, cultural and development projects, and was preceded by many initiatives, most notably in This year, the rehabilitation of Al-Mutanabbi Street, which represents the cultural mind of Iraq, and this celebration also comes in line with achieving the goal of community initiatives in empowering youth and entrepreneurs and helping them to secure an appropriate business environment to start, finance and develop projects in a way that contributes to achieving sustainable development.
Emphasizing that Iraq does not build it and restore its glory and brilliance and build its new future, except for its sons and national entrepreneurs. And work to provide business incubators to support young people, develop their skills and build their capabilities in order to develop their small and medium projects and achieve the developmental and economic goal. The most prominent thing that caught my eye and the celebrants’ eyes in the celebration were the cases of joy and hope. Yes, I was shaken by this true patriotic feeling when young people win and realize the dream they had when they saw it on the ground.
And that the celebration confirmed that such initiatives are patriotic practices to serve the national economy and serve the youth in order to take their positions in the leadership of society, because Iraq is on the verge of moving to a new stage in overcoming the stage of the financial and economic crisis to an important new stage after the elections.
It makes us draw lessons and lessons from the experiences of peoples and developed countries politically and economically by relying on the competent, ambitious and enlightened Iraqi youth to lead the institutions of the national economy, especially the economic market, with a new methodology that depends on vitality and insistence on overcoming challenges and focusing on the youth who believe in the destiny of their beloved Iraq and its proud Iraqi people in the sound construction of the economy With a new spirit that carries all the aspirations of young people and provides the best services and products to the public according to a view based on keenness to develop policies, programs and visions.
