And the Chancellor that the process does not carry any economic value in situations such as those experienced by Iraq, as the corruption will create a disruption big that could undermine the benefits of this transformation, noting that the transformation of some countries did not shift entirely but was gradually extended for many years in order not to cause a clear financial collapses in currency markets to those countries or to create disruption in the markets, government departments and service institutions.

JOEY: Reads from one of her favorites this week... CHRISTINE LAGARDE: IMF “The Challenges for the Global Economy”: Opening Remarks at the Royal Institute for International Affairs - Chatham House
By Christine Lagarde
Managing Director, International Monetary Fund
London, September 9, 2011 (full article by clicking on link below)
Good morning. It’s a pleasure to be here with you today, at this beautiful and historic venue. About six weeks ago, I spoke at a similar early morning event in New York, at the Council on Foreign Relations. These two sister organizations—founded in the wake of the Great War—have a common goal of fostering the ideas and dialogue needed to build a prosperous and secure world for all. Given the precarious state of the global economy, such dialogue is clearly essential. I wish to thank Chatham House for organizing this event, and thank my friend, Chancellor Osborne, for inviting me to speak. I look forward to hearing his views, as well as those of the eminent economists joining us at this roundtable.
The key message I wish to convey today is that countries must act now—and act boldly—to steer their economies through this dangerous new phase of the recovery. The world is collectively suffering from a crisis of confidence, in the face of a deteriorating economic outlook and rising concerns about the health of sovereigns and banks. All this is happening at a time when the scope for policy action is considerably narrower than when the crisis first erupted. But while the policy options may be fewer, there is a path to recovery.
Challenges for the global economy
Let me set out the principal economic challenges. The bottom line is that global activity has slowed, and downside risks have increased. At the same time, the global rebalancing of demand needed for sustainable global growth has stalled.
In key advanced economies, the necessary hand-off from public to private demand is not taking place. The fundamental problem is that weak growth and weak balance sheets—of governments, financial institutions, and households—are feeding negatively on each other. If growth continues to lose momentum, balance sheet problems will worsen, fiscal sustainability will be threatened, and the scope for policies to salvage the recovery will disappear.
In the emerging economies, performance has been considerably better. But in some countries, growth may be too fast, and policies are needed to contain overheating risks. Another issue is that in many of the key surplus economies, there has been little progress in shifting from external to domestic demand. In these economies, significant currency appreciation and structural reforms can help bring about the rebalancing needed to support strong, stable and sustainable global growth.
In just a few hours, I will be traveling to Marseille, to join the meeting of G-7 central bank governors and ministers of finance. I look forward to a discussion of the outlook and the balance of risks at this pivotal time for the global economy, and what this means for their policies.
We will also be focusing on the challenges facing the Middle East and North Africa. The region is experiencing a historic transformation, which also has significant economic and financial consequences. Clearly, the countries themselves must take the lead in charting their forward course, to building stronger and more open economies. But they will have a strong partner in the international community—including the IMF. More broadly, the IMF will continue to support its members as they seek the best policies to deal with the challenges they face today—be they advanced, emerging, or developing economies.
In two weeks, our members will come to Washington for the IMF Annual Meetings. Together, we will discuss the critical challenges facing the global economy. The road ahead may be rocky, but a way forward exists—if we act now. With each country playing their part, we can identify the actions needed to achieve strong, sustainable and balanced growth.
JOEY: Loves this article....This article is beyond WOW....I do not know how plainer it gets than this....Discusses how she is discussing the global growth and the backing of the IMF...... In these economies, significant currency appreciation and structural reforms can help bring about the rebalancing needed to support strong, stable and sustainable global growth. But they will have a strong partner in the international community—including the IMF. In the nest couple of weeks there is another meeting IMF meeting to talk about the Global economy and you better believe that Iraq is right at the head of this list... VIC: Can we go down memory lane a little.....Vic speaks about his childhood and where he was born

Speaks about Russia...Nate Rothchild...oil.....etc
Everyone has forgotten about the sleeping bear.

BAGHDAD - Yasser incumbent - Hussein Tgb
Iraq could move towards the implementation of the administrative reform the help of the international organization ((U.S. Agency for International Development Bernameh (thread) and at a cost of $ 150 million, implemented four years later in 2011 in 2015 designed to deal with government departments in the provinces five years)).
The Agency organized a seminar discussion to shed light on how to implement this project through legal amendments to make them compatible with the system works to create an attractive environment for global investment in Iraq.
raised this episode involving a group of representatives of business organizations of civil society with the economic subject of controversy wide about the possibility of transition from dictatorship to a market economy and the challenges of this transformation. Considering the controversy or conflict but rather a starting point to remove the main obstacle to the achievement of economic reform is required.
Highlights of this symposium imbalance, which hampers the transformation and Msrah the myriad of laws and legislation which countless saw the symposium need to cancel or facilitate or amend such laws as may be Iraq to achieve economic development desired (reform) and this is the goal of the project, prepared by the (correlation).
He noted that the approach to the guillotine was a pioneer in Sweden in the eighties of the last century, as was used in Hungary and South Korea and Mexico in the nineties has been evaluated those experiences by the OECD in its regulatory reform for the period 2001 2011 and the Scott refining those experiences and outcomes in developing countries is the strategy Jacobs has registered as a trademark which is ((guillotine regulatory).
He hinted that the last two years have witnessed the completion of many countries in transition, the process of the guillotine, and these have included Ukraine , Moldova, Kenya, Bosnia, Croatia, Egypt, Syria and Vietnam also started to Jordan using the guillotine mini.
, said Scott that the guillotine is the process of orderly and transparent to the public and private sectors and aims to showcase a number of regulations and legislation quickly to determine if it was legal and transparent and necessary and friendly business environment, a strategy of reform from top to bottom and must have strong leadership in the central government but are operated by a unit repair mini set up specifically for this process.
Nada Jubouri member of the House of Representatives confirmed that the issue of the guillotine is very important, many problems experienced by the country's legal system, including economic systems, and if we adopted the current mechanism followed by the competent departments in the process of reform, we need to decades of time to reach some positive results in this area, pointing out that the guillotine will provide an environment in which the modified set of laws and put them to the House of Representatives during a specific time period not exceeding 6 months, confirming that the House of Representatives its sessions the former was not able to amend laws that negatively affect the reality of the investment in work and improve work, we have to go to the economic reforms really work on the development of the reality of the local economy, and during this guillotine can create the investment environment of the country.
the president of the Industrialists Abdul Hassan Shammari and Vice President of the Union of businessmen Hassan Silawi stressed that providing one million jobs through this project is a quantum leap but the challenge lies in how to activate the industrial sector and production in the country to achieve this goal. http://www.alsabaah.com/ArticleShow.aspx?ID=13380

Iraq was unable to attract foreign investment so far .. Experts: the development of political relations have a positive impact in the economy
The future of Iraq / Sudan minimum
Stressed by a number of economic experts on the application of good relations between Iraq and the rest of the countries at the international level, noting that he needs a set of requirements such as improving the internal situation and the expansion of political participation in the development of the Constitution and a political system is clear, ensuring economic stability, calling for the government adopted a program to develop plans strategy to curb the deterioration of economic conditions in the country.
Hussein Shibli, an economist said to (the future of Iraq) that the expansion of political participation and economic and trade contribute to the implementation of good relations with the international community, For the country to present itself as a magnet for foreign investment, noting that the economic situation and standard of living Bad also perceives the people, adding that the country of crisis to the extent that is difficult to imagine, while the government has a range of measures as measures to mitigate the negative impacts of macroeconomic and experts stressed that it measures inescapable but we question the credibility of the government in implementing these measures.
and on the ability of These measures and government actions to alleviate the negative effects of the economic situation deteriorating, as the measures have not been fast enough .. Adding "that the executive authorities resorted to laparoscopy are questioning the credibility of the measures are you talking about, and that the government launched by a lot of promises without to have positive results on the economic performance."
For his part, described the researcher leading the net economic situation as "tense" in the country to the extent that we can not imagine a worse situation than the corroborating that he said, the rise in materials and increase production costs and the weakness of the reserves of foreign exchange and the absence of a breakthrough in exports is affecting the economic stability, especially in the rates of growth and price stability and creating job opportunities and increased levels of income and gains increased unemployment. And a contraction of economic as the first scenario in the financial measures of the country in reducing allocations of Representatives and the reduction of the state structures, Safi said, "was supposed to have been downsizing restructuring the overall of the executive, legislative and administrative .. but this did not happen, and ascribed this to the fact that many of those window in the government is keen to privileges, but asked for some increase allocations and added that the contraction is also associated with reducing the number of ministries and control institutions and increase the efficiency side of control of the manifestations of corruption .. he said, must address all of that is institutional, but any talk of downsizing is this is not feasible.
indicating "The application of relations at the international level needs to be a set of requirements such as improving the internal situation and the expansion of political participation in the constitution and form of political system which ensures stability .. The government should adopt a program to develop strategic plans to expand the umbrella of the tax, which is one of the aspects of choice for the government to ease of access to, and describing such measures particularly serious in light of the increasing prices on a daily basis and the deterioration of living for the majority of citizens ..
As for the advancement of agriculture and industry as one of the pillars of the program said net "it lacks the infrastructure and funding necessary to add to their suffering from high production costs and this is not the problems of quality standards and specifications imposed globally.
According to expert financial Hana Musawi "The situation in the country requires action in the form of packages full political with respect to agricultural policy and industrial development in Iraq all aspects affecting them in the finance, infrastructure and production costs and foreign markets and attract foreign investment and the role of state support and reform in policy and public administration in Iraq and get rid of the manifestations of bias in funding or in preference, or aspects of the fight against corruption, in addition to that there is a need to follow a set of special procedures increase the competitiveness of the private sector, which suffers from significant problems, even contributing to the ongoing agricultural, industrial, and this needs political arrangements solve the outstanding problems in the country and non-completion of these arrangements will continue to be problems at a standstill.
She said Moussaoui "should improve the situation at home first, and the expansion of political participation in real decision-making, increasing popular support for economic policies and the application of relations with the international community and this is very important for the Iraqi economy.
and I thought Moussaoui "He could see the next phase of stability and cooperation in economic, trade and resolving outstanding issues and reach agreements on oil and currency of the new flow trade and joint investment opportunities and opening the door for investment by the private sector in the country to invest in the other country offers such great opportunities for Iraq to be the most closely of any other countries nearby.
Joey: Repeats the sentence "So the next phase of stability and cooperation in economic, trade and resolving outstanding issues and reach agreements on oil and currency of the new flow trade and joint investment opportunities and opening the door for investment by the private sector in the country to invest in the other country offers such great opportunities for Iraq to be the most closely of any other countries nearby.

NATO to continue Iraq training mission to end: (Reuters) - NATO will continue a small training mission in Iraq until the end of 2013, an alliance official said on Monday, in what could signal flexibility from Baghdad over the presence of foreign troops months before a deadline for all U.S. forces to withdraw. Washington, which still has 43,000 troops in Iraq, is due to withdraw entirely by the end of this year. But it has been in sensitive discussions with Baghdad about whether some of its troops may still be needed in a training or advisory role. Colonel Michael Russell, chief of staff for NATO's Iraq training mission, said the alliance had agreed to keep its small team, now numbering 160 staff, in Iraq after Baghdad agreed not to extend the mission beyond 2013 and to pay part of the costs. Iraq had also offered the NATO trainers "protection privileges" such as the right to self defense, although the details were still being hammered out, Russell said. U.S. officials have said they would require similar safeguards if Washington is to keep any of its own troops in Iraq beyond this year. The United States ended combat operations a year ago and is required under a 2008 agreement to withdraw all its forces by December 31 unless Baghdad invites them to stay on. Any such decision would be politically fraught for Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki. NATO's far smaller operation is largely under the radar. Unlike in Afghanistan, where NATO is in charge of the main U.S.-led international force waging war against the Taliban, the alliance has played only a non-combat role in Iraq since many European allies refused to join President George W. Bush's "coalition of the willing" that invaded in 2003. NATO has operated a training mission since 2004, providing expertise in areas such as logistics and policing for nascent Iraqi security forces. The team now includes about 12 Americans, Russell said. More than eight years since the U.S.-led invasion that toppled dictator Saddam Hussein, Iraqi security forces are still battling a stubborn Sunni insurgency and Shi'ite militia, both capable of carrying out lethal attacks. Iraqi security forces say they still need training for their air and naval defences. NATO has been working with U.S. forces to identify gaps in Iraq's security forces, Russell said. "Our teams have been working with the Iraqi training assistance missions and in anticipation of the American drawdown of forces, all this year, we've been working with the Americans to identify where these capability gaps will remain," he said.
