There’s been indications in the IMF’s own reports, in what’s called their article IV consultations… there have been comments from the IMF…where they’ve told them [Iraq] to liberalize their foreign exchange, to move to Article VIII.   There have been statements in those Article IV consultations that have been very encouraging regarding our investment leading us down the path of what we’re looking for…freedom of movement of capital…’moving to article VIII will send a strong message to the global investment community that Iraq is open for business.’  So there is no confusion there…they have to move to Article VIII…if they want to convince the world ‘hey, we’re ready. Come and invest.’  So article VIII isn’t a dream we’re hoping for, it’s a step in the process and we’re just on the cusp I think of that occurring.
