Approach To The Formation Of The Future Iraqi Sovereign Fund, Which Forms It Systematically And Structurally And Implements It In Practice
Articles Aqeel Jaber Ali
A knowledge base that “on the path, the path is formed”, but we are still in the steps of thinking about shaping the path of the methodology of the sovereign fund. Undoubtedly, the scientific methodological theorization of the sovereign investment fund is not scientifically and methodologically difficult, but the stumbling obstacle in practical application, as is the case with the obstacle of transition to a type of budget Programs and objectives in the federal general budget.
It highlights the importance necessary to focus methodically and practically to contain and enable the shift from scientific theorizing to the reality and methodology of the applicable financial and economic model, which is the biggest challenge for government economic officials.
In this regard, we think in parallel who is the party responsible for forming and formulating the structure of the Iraqi Sovereign Fund in a real and realistic way, systematically, structurally and institutionally in the reality of institutional work away from non-productive and practically unproductive theorizing!
Sovereign funds can be created and formed from the surpluses of the federal public budget, surpluses of government revenues from the activities of companies whose assets occupy a large share, the revenues from certain tax savings, including foreign exchange reserves of central banks, and international trade surpluses.
This, for example, is how money is made in China. Sovereign funds, representing the state, dispose of national savings, invest them in funds of various companies and other financial instruments, in particular, in stocks, bonds and funds of foreign countries.
In principle, the foreign exchange reserves of the Fund are used differently from the official reserves of the government. Specifically, the state usually has two other schemes for investing financial resources: a central bank that invests primarily in bonds, and state-owned companies that invest their money in private equity.
But the resources of the last two institutions can also be transferred by the state to sovereign funds. Sovereign investment funds, owned by the governments of sovereign countries, manage state rental income (the public domain) and budget surpluses.
Each sovereign fund seeks to increase its potential and capabilities by investing in various national and international financial instruments. If the main goal of pension funds is to ensure the financing of pension obligations, then sovereign accumulation funds pursue various goals, such as: pooling savings for future generations, promoting the implementation of social and economic projects, and protecting the economy from fluctuations.
In commodity prices, to promote restructuring and scientific and technical development. This management of national wealth in the name of the development of society and the state as a whole can be considered a new type of modern international economic approach based on the formation of national welfare funds.
It opens new horizons for organization, planning and macroeconomic methodology. From the foregoing, there are several questions that seem logical and objective in the reality of the proactive thinking approach to the issue of forming the Iraqi sovereign fund, including:
