MilitiaMan:  Representative economic: the process of automating the ports will increase the revenues of the ports by 10 times  LINK

The new head of the Integrity Commission holds its first meeting to develop a quick plan to combat corruption  LINK

The launch of the single window project in the Department of Companies Registrar … and the Ministry of Commerce reveals its advantages  LINK

MilitiaMan:  Notice the theme here is automation. Electronic programs to link companies and facilitate trade while battling corruption.

In so doing, they have a regulatory bylaw for disclosing financial receivables.

In other words, follow the money.

Automated ports will have to have an electronic paper trail. One that will have transparency. They need it now. Hence, we see all the articles on the matter.

The focus with the Kurds and borders for customs, fees, taxes etc, have been front and center, and even now to day the Port of Fao has been brought up in regard to corruption and it was deliberate negligence!

I suspect they know who, when, how much, etc., that has been stolen..  The data base they create will be an on ongoing entity that want lie.. Every thing is going to be transparent and man o man is the revenues going to increase big time!!! imo.

Good times be sure going forward. imo!! ~ MM

The sources pointed out that the Central Bank of Iran pumped $ 280 billion of foreign currencies into the market to reduce the price of the dollar over the past 15 years, according to Central Bank Governor Abdel Nasser Hemmati, but he is unable to pump more currencies due to the 40% drop in oil exports.LINK
