The current and expected financial situation for Iraq until the end of the year is very good, as oil prices will not be less than $100 per barrel. It fulfills its obligations towards internal and external debts, establishes its sovereign fund,
and overcomes a real budget deficit for the first time in years. Therefore, in the face of this reality requires taking quick measures by approving the budget by the new government and Parliament, with a date not exceeding the first half of this year, and to include the following priorities: ‐
1‐ Re Revenue structure towards activating and stimulating the productive sectors, especially agriculture, industry, housing, services and tourism, and increasing the proportion of the contribution of income sources other than oil to the budget revenues.
3- Giving a role to the private sector in investing in reconstruction and infrastructure projects in Baghdad and the governorates
5- Allocating a special amount to the Ministry of Commerce to secure strategic storage for foodstuffs covered by the ration card for a period of no less than 3 months.
Increasing the ration items to reach 10 items. Allocating funds to support the prices of flour, rice, sugar and baby milk.
6- Allocating an amount to activate and support the agricultural, industrial and tourism sectors and to support the local product.
7- Allocating an amount to the Ministry of Labor to cover the increase in the number of people covered by social care, to cover the increase in their salaries at a rate equivalent to the reduction in the Iraqi dinar exchange rate, to cover the financing of small and medium projects, and to include the displaced who cannot be returned to their homes
with social care.
