The Emaar Real Estate is a real estate development company based in the United Arab Emirates, which is the constructor of the tallest building in the world in Dubai (Burj Khalifa) and has many projects at the global level.

butterfly  Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi chaired today, Tuesday, a regular session of the Council of Ministers, in which developments in the country were discussed, and the topics included in the agenda were discussed.

At the outset of the meeting, the Prime Minister extended his congratulations to the Iraqi people on the occasion of the blessed month of Ramadan, wishing that this holy month would be an opportunity for love and tolerance, calling for state institutions to double all their efforts in order to serve the citizen and meet his needs.

And Al-Kazemi said: “Following up on citizens’ issues and needs and easing bureaucratic procedures are among the priorities of government work.”

The ministers called for utmost efforts to provide for these needs.

The Prime Minister affirmed: “The government came to serve the citizens and face the great challenges facing the country and not for a political goal, and that it has succeeded in areas while others need increased follow-up and work,” referring to the success of the reform measures taken by the government, some of which contributed to an increase The central bank reserves of the dollar.

He renewed his directives to the Ministry of Trade to work continuously to provide more food in the ration card, and to work with all its energy to achieve this matter.

Regarding the increase in the prices of some commodities, Al-Kazemi stressed: “Most of them are linked to the greed of some merchants, and we have campaigns to prevent this price manipulation.”

The Minister of Health and Environment also presented a detailed report on the developments of the work of the Committee for the Promotion of Governmental Measures in the areas of prevention and control of health and awareness regarding limiting the spread of Coronavirus. He also reviewed the ministry’s efforts in the vaccination campaigns it carries out in the capital, Baghdad, and all governorates.

After the Council of Ministers discussed the topics on its agenda, it issued a number of decisions, including:

The two companies (Al Fakher for Commercial Agencies and Export Limited Liability, and Al Bashaer Commercial Limited) are considered dissolved by law, and the proceeds of the liquidation of the two aforementioned companies and their money devolve to the Ministry of Finance.

butterfly   It was approved to issue the system of the first amendment to the system of parents and teachers councils No. (1) for the year 1994, based on the provisions of clause (third) of Article (80) of the constitution, taking into account the observations of the legal department in the General Secretariat of the Council of Ministers.

butterfly  Iraq is poised to attract significant foreign investment into its energy sector, in tandem with expected higher revenues following the Opec+ decision to raise output that will help strengthen its weak fiscal position.

Baghdad, a founding member of Opec and the group’s second largest producer, is forging ahead with a number of public and private sector transactions that the government hopes will shore up its finances after it was forced to devalue its currency last year.

Iraq’s investment drive is in stark contrast to its fiscal position last year, when its economy was on the brink of collapse, with the public sector burning through $5 billion month on salaries for government servants.

Oil prices are nearly 50 per cent higher than six months ago and Iraq is allowed to increase crude output as Opec+ looks to bring 2 million barrels per day back in the markets by July.

The Covid-19 pandemic, combined with a decline in oil revenues last year from low global demand and Opec+ output cuts, dealt a severe blow to the country’s rentier economy.

The economy contracted 10.9 per cent last year exacerbated by Opec+ curbs and is forecast to grow 1.1 per cent this year supported by a rebound in oil prices and higher Opec+ output quotas, according to the International Monetary Fund. The World Bank estimates the economy will grow slightly higher at 1.9 per cent this year, and expand 6.3 per cent over the next two years.

butterfly  The rebound in oil prices, the Opec+ output increases for Iraq and government policies are helping shore up the country’s foreign exchange reserves, which were strained last year. On Monday, Prime Minister Mustafa Al Kadhimi said Iraq’s foreign reserves rose to more than $60bn and credited the increase to his government’s efforts to wipe out corruption.

Though its ability to borrow was constrained last year after it exhausted all domestic options, Iraq’s credit out look has also improved.

“Progressing and maintaining the fiscal consolidation will be critical for the sustainability of the economy in Iraq, despite the improvement in the oil price,” Jihad Azour the head of the IMF’s Middle East and Central Asia department, told The National. “The higher oil price is an opportunity to advance on some of the structural reforms that will allow to achieve a higher level of inclusive growth.”

Last month, Fitch Ratings affirmed the country’s long term foreign currency issuer default rating at B-, while adjusting Iraq’s outlook to stable from negative.

Regional investors are cautiously eyeing Iraq as a possible investment destination this year.

The Arab Petroleum Investments Corporation is currently assessing Iraq for possible investments in the traditional energy space as well as in renewables, according to its chief executive Ahmed Ali Attiga.

butterfly   The multilateral lender, which is owned by the 10 members of the Organisation of Arab Petroleum Exporting Countries, is looking at financing projects in post-conflict oil producers such as Iraq and Libya and plans to disburse nearly $2bn this year.

“Iraq doesn’t have the same credit profile [as the UAE or Saudi Arabia]. So they have to think of the mix of resources that they can mobilise including the support of other of multilateral financial institutions, particularly for larger projects in the energy space,” Mr Al Attiga said in an interview.

Attracting private investments would be the most “sustainable source” of financing Iraq’s government could possibly muster, he added.

On Sunday, Iraq’s ministry of finance, General Electric and backers including the UAE’s Etihad Credit Insurance finalised the terms on critical power infrastructure rehabilitation projects covering seven plants in the country.

The investment in repairs that will provide stable generation of up to 2.7 gigawatts, was backed by the UAE’s export credit company, Etihad Credit Insurance. The ECI will insure GE’s debt, provided by lender JP Morgan.

The announcement follows Mr Al Kadhimi’s visit to the UAE last week, that saw the Emirates pledge $3bn in investment commitments to Iraq. Mr Al Kadhimi also visited Riyadh, which committed to a $3bn fund for development of critical projects in Iraq.

The regional support is crucial for Iraq, providing backing through the form of export credit financing for foreign investors looking to tap into the country’s lucrative energy industries.
