Article: “PLANNING ACKNOWLEDGES THE “FAILURE” OF ITS STRATEGY TO SUPPORT THE PRIVATE SECTOR” Can’t support the private sector because in Iraq alone there is no private sector, get it? The private sector comes from outside investors coming into Iraq with there money to invest in shopping malls, restaurants, shops, manufacturing, etc. These investors do want to come in without an easy, non-corrupt way to transfer capital and profits in and out of Iraq. Currently they can not do this for fear of it being stolen and disappearing. Also there are still laws from the Saddam period that prohibit land ownership etc., that must change. Iraq must get with the 21st century.
