Economy News - Baghdad
The economist, Ahmed Fouad, suggested that "real appointments" would not be available in the 2023 budget, due to Iraq's commitments with the World Bank, calling for finding alternatives to government jobs and moving towards the private sector.
Fouad said, "The draft budget law for 2023 is still in the Ministry of Finance, and it will be transferred during the current month to the Prime Minister's Office to present it to Parliament early next year, and then decide on the budget after the first, second and third readings."
The economist ruled out the existence of new appointments in the 2023 budget, attributing this to the fact that "Iraq is subject to the conditions of the World Bank, just as the country borrowed large sums of money from external parties, and the World Bank set a set of conditions, including not providing additional appointments at the expense of the government."
Fouad pointed out that "the new appointments may be a kind of street gain, for political purposes," calling on "the government to transfer the sums it will allocate for appointments to the private sector in order to find alternatives to jobs, and these alternatives will be double if the government is able to exploit them properly." .
Fouad continued in an interview with "Shafaq News" agency, followed by "Al-Iqtisad News", "In the end, these amounts will be used practically, and there will be no real appointments within the new budget, even if approved, they will not be implemented, due to commitments with the World Bank."
