    The 13th WTO Ministerial Conference (MC13) has been extended by one day, until Friday 1 March, in order to facilitate outcomes on the main issues at stake. 

    Following the consultations by WTO Director-General Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala with the MC13 Chair, Dr Thani bin Ahmed Al Zeyoudi, and the Minister Facilitators, delegations were informed that MC13 will be extended, with the closing session scheduled to begin at 2pm Abu Dhabi time.
    At the meeting of Heads of Delegation (HoDs) on 28 February, DG Okonjo-Iweala called on members to go the extra mile to find convergence on the various negotiations at the ministerial gathering and to be mindful that time is running out to conclude meaningful agreements.
    The 13th Ministerial Conference was initially scheduled to close today (29 February) at 8pm Abu Dhabi time.

    It is going to be interesting to see what the main issues are in totality within the WTO extended meetings. The IMF completed Iraq's Article IV consultation with a conlusion to day. Iraq has done very well in her economic and monetary reforms under the leadership of Al-Sudani and the Central Bank of Iraq. The IMFs comments will go far in serving support for Iraq into the future. If Iraq is on the agenda tomorrow as one of the main issues, Iraq should do very well by the accolades Taif Sami the Finance Minister has been given today. imo ~ MM

    The WTO report says Iraq is ready to join the WTO having completed the requirements and that there will first be another meeting of Arab nations Q&A of their experiences before Iraq formally joins. Concerning the IMF art IV meeting This line stood out to me:



    The mission also expressed its optimism about “the level of understanding and progress achieved with the Iraqi government and the coordination steps and joint consultations that will be completed in the near term.

    Completing in the Near term coordinated steps!  BTW IMF art IV is all about exchange rate mechanisms. You ought to read up on that IMF provision for the flavor of the effort. Both reports are below.
