09:39 – 11/05/2020

Economic expert Ammar al-Jabri said that the government’s restrictions on the people under the pretext of the borrowing law and holding Parliament responsible for voting on the disbursement of large sums of money will lead to crises crises that cannot be rectified, pointing out that the market will suffer greatly because the citizen will move away from shopping as it was previously and thus enter the country in Real crisis.

Al-Jabri said to “the information”, that “the abundance of supply and the lack of demand will lead to spoilage of foodstuffs and other commodities as a result of their remaining in the shops, in addition to the fact that the owners of those shops and merchants will incur financial burdens as a result of not disposing of the goods and paying rents and salaries to the workers.” He added that “the citizen and the employee in particular will be significantly reluctant to shop and shop in light of the crisis created by the government to achieve certain goals by borrowing more than 40 trillion dinars.”

And he indicated that “what the Al-Kazemi government is doing has never been done by another government, despite the war against terrorism that Iraq has lived through and real crises, as the current crisis may lead to an explosion of the street and the people to come out in revolt against the government”, pointing out that “Al-Kazemi was unable to find sources funding the country, and also he was unable to exploit the current resources to maximize budget revenues, and therefore he entered the country into a new cycle that will not end without his departure.   LINK

Don961:  {Digitize} the reform paper

Thursday 05th November 2020 Dr.. Basem Brahimi

In order for any plan or strategy to succeed, we must be able to measure its effect on the ground, in other words it is necessary to “digitize” the plan or strategy in order for the speech to be based on scientific evidence, but if we do not have numerical indicators to measure the application, then that Will lead to controversy about the success ofLack thereof.

As it becomes then based on diligence and subjective impression, and this matter is subject to difference, which applies to a large extent to most of the previous strategies, if not most of them, as we find that they included in their chapters non-measurable goals or measurable goals, but without announcing “their digitization.” That is, it remained open to the ceiling and ultimately depends on the description.

This matter is considered a major reason for the failure of the previous plans to succeed and the inability to follow up or monitor them to determine the extent of success and failure in implementation, especially with no specific body to monitor implementation that has the ability to account and announce the results to the public.

Therefore, what raises concerns today is that the white paper announced by the government will be implemented and that we reach the same previous results that the previous plans have reached, and this matter calls for us to emphasize the importance of “digitizing”, that is, specifying specific numbers for its goals that are set according to realistic data that take into account potential changes. Over the years of the plan.

And then assisting in the implementation process and later evaluating the extent of each party’s success in reaching the special goals Out.

In this context, we reaffirm a proposal that we previously presented that includes the Economic Committee in the Council of Ministers to follow up on the implementation of the paper, as it is a higher body than a ministry as well as it includes economic ministries and entities not associated with a ministry, of an economic nature. Its meetings are to be evaluated achievement and requirements Success.

But if the paper remains with general non-digital goals and no higher body has been identified to follow it up, then this will reduce the chances of success and evaluation together, that this paper is an important opportunity to reform the Iraqi economy and cross it to safety in the midst of the current crisis; So we feel obligated to provide any idea that could contribute to Its success.   LINK
