    [size=45]On the occasion of the conclusion of the talks, Bolan announced that he expects the non-oil GDP to grow by 5% in 2023 in light of the significant expansion in public finances within the framework of the three-year budget law in force.[/size]
    [size=45]The report quoted Polan as saying, “Continuing implementation of the budget should help maintain strong non-oil growth in 2024. However, the decline in oil production after the closure of the oil pipeline linking Iraq and Turkey, and the reduction in production at the request of the OPEC+ group, “They will work together to reduce GDP growth in 2023 and 2024.”[/size]
    [size=45]He added, “The inflation rate has declined from its peak by 7% in January of this year, and inflation is expected to stabilize during the coming months, thanks to the Central Bank of Iraq’s adoption of a more stringent monetary policy, and the impact of raising the Iraqi dinar exchange rate.” Global food prices decreased, trade financing operations returned to normal, and compliance with the anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing framework improved.”[/size]
    [size=45]The report considered that “the adoption of the budget setting method over a three-year period in June 2023 constituted a shift in the practice used for setting budgets in Iraq, with the aim of improving the level of financial planning and continuing the implementation of important development projects in the medium term.”[/size]

    [size=45]He pointed out that the significant expansion in public finances, including a fundamental increase in the numbers of members of the public sector and retirement, creates permanent requirements for public spending that will put pressure on public funds in the medium term.[/size]
    [size=45]The IMF official continued, saying, “Ensuring the sustainability of public finances, in the context of the uncertain outlook for oil prices, requires a gradual tightening of the fiscal policy stance, and at the same time, working to ensure the protection of critical needs for infrastructure and social spending.”[/size]
    [size=45]This would also require mobilizing more non-oil revenues, containing the wage bill for government employees, and reforming the government retirement system.[/size]
    [size=45]These measures must be supported by moving towards a more targeted social safety net that works to provide better protection for vulnerable groups.[/size]
