THE BIG CALL NOTES, 14 FEB




Bruce: Welcome Everybody to the Big Call tonight. First, when the toll free numbers are made available to me to put out, that is one way they will go out in that those who have registered their email on our new website: bigcalluniverse.com. Once you have registered your email, you will get an email back after the numbers are released. I do not have the numbers yet just to let everyone know. When I do get them obviously that is one way to dissimulate the information to our listeners by email. They will be able to do that through that site. Let’s talk about where we are now. We are in a position, to be honest, that all indicators are pointing toward the fact that everything is complete. That is great to hear. We thought it was the case the last few days, but we are getting good indicators that is the case now.

Bruce: Now let’s start with Iraq. We talked about on last Thursday’s call we would have Iraq in a conference Rebuilding Iraq hosting in Kuwait. The start of that was on Monday, yesterday, and it goes thru Thursday. We have a number of countries (70) there to do investments in Iraq. We found out early this morning that Kuwait on Kuwait TV stated the investment for Iraq for that conference that everybody would be backed by the World Bank. The reason that appears the case is because at the time of the start of the conference as far as we know, we hear the Iraqi dinar rate had not been made internationally known. It is known all over the place if you know where to look like if you are a trader, bank trader. Then you use it, but it is not on the Forex to my knowledge yet.

Bruce: Iraq who was given permission a few weeks ago to release that rate has not done it yet. We thought it would be done before the conference started. Kuwait TV had out all the investment opportunities (212) for Iraqi will be essentially backed by the World Bank. That is a start even though Iraq should be on their own since they are sovereign and have their own rate. Speaking of their own budget and rate, sources this morning stated that the budget would be put in the Gazette tomorrow.Tomorrow’s Gazette edition which would include the rate for the dinar. Here we thought it would have happen a week or two ago. Still hasn’t happened. It should happen tomorrow. Iraq’s Gazette usually comes out Wednesday and Saturday. Tomorrowis a good day to bring it out. Tomorrow the Gazette usually comes out at first Morning Prayer shortly after sunrise. That is something between now and midnight on the east coast. Should be something they put in the Gazette. How soon would we see it? I do not know. That would be positive if it was put out.

Bruce: For the last few days there been major bank meetings on Saturday for several hours (5 to 6). They went well. Then there were a couple of meetings with HSBC on Sunday. They went well. At about 3:15 pm on Sunday a call came in from someone with the administration stating everything is complete and there is no reason to continue the meeting. The meeting was supposed to go to 5:30 pm, but was disbanded at 3:15pm.

Bruce: We know what is complete. Everything is ready to go. Then we heard yesterday that the Treasury had a meeting. The Secretary of the Treasury was on a phone call and a phone call came in to let them know that everything is done and they wanted all done today. We were getting contacts in the US Treasury talking about this going and going even last night by midnight, and I heard couple of other people give earlier times. We didn’t get it in the sense of 800 numbers. We know it is in the hands of the banks now because it has been released by the Treasury to do it.

Bruce: There was testing thru the weekend that primarily started Saturday at 3:15p. This was to connect the Redemption Centers to all the Call Centers all over the country and Canada. That testing of those connecting which supposed to be completed occurred by 3:15pm on Saturday at that time. What is interesting is that we understood there be 18 to 24 hours of testing after that. Then we would have the opportunity to go. We believe that testing occurred and we were believe yesterday would possibly be Go-day because the testing would be have been completed yesterday, but here we are today, Tuesday night. I don’t know what the time frame is. I know I would get in trouble if I told you what I thought what the day of the release is.

Bruce: Redemption Centers are in various levels of readiness to go sometime this week, and later in the week they have hired staff going in with a higher number of staff people. Doesn’t mean that the people working for the Redemption Centers couldn’t also go be on call and they can adjust very quickly and go in.

Bruce: Let’s talk about the Redemption Centers. Remember when we talked about the Call Centers how you will call up the toll free number, and if you are a Zim holder, you will be transferred directly over to the Zim Redemption Center in your zip code area or one closer to it. We found out that, I think I talked about (5) toll free numbers, there now is going to be (3) toll free numbers. One of the numbers is for Canada. They have one toll free number that will work for Canada. So one Call Center for Canada which has less population and less Zim holders.

Bruce: The United States went from (3) call centers down to (2). We will have (2) toll free numbers. How they will divide the country up? I do not know. I suspect it would be along time zones. Possibly, but I do not know if this to be true. If it be up to me, I would set it up Eastern Time zones on one number, and Mountain, Pacific, and Alaska and Hawaii on the other number. Let’s see how they do it. People would then know what number to call then. Use the one that would fit your time zone. That is how I would do it. Let’s see how they will do it. I am sure they have it figured out.

Bruce: Knowing that there will be (3) numbers: (1) for Canada, (2) for the United States. Probably we will put out all (3) numbers on our website as well as an explain which one to use; a short explanation would go out in the email. I can’t make it too much clearer than that. We heard there would be (5) numbers last Thursday. Then we heard clarification on Friday they were going to whittle it down, the number of Call Centers down, and they did do that. That is all great.

Bruce: We know that when I call Redemption Centers are for those we are going to take in Zim and I call the Exchange Locations for those exchanging the other currencies and not redeeming the Zim. That is where I make that distinction. There is off sites centers and Tier 1 banks. As I mentioned on Thursday call, we have in the vicinity of (7,200) Tier 1 banks that should be exchanging currencies and redeeming Zim, but that will be and that is not just (12) of each brand like we thought a month or two ago. There is a lot more of them available to take them. I personally believe your best opportunity is to take the toll free number, call it, set your appointment, and use the ability you have to personally negotiate your rate should you choose to do that if you choose to get a personal negotiable rate on your Zim within some range. Also dinar, dong and rial.

Bruce: You guys know that I hope no one is still talking about zeros being taken off the Zim. It is a bond, printed on bond paper with bond ink and no zeros are coming off the Zim period. I can’t tell you what the rates are going to be because they vary. Whatever the rates show, they will be extremely strong, and be very good.

Bruce: As far as the dinar, we know the dinar today is in play. I had rates on dinar, dong, Zim on Saturday as of early morning. I don’t believe it is fair to talk about them what they will be on Tuesday. I did hear today the dinar is on the move. That is a good sign. It was really in good shape Saturday morning. To think by now by Tuesday night we will be in good shape on that. Don’t sweat it. That is the least of your concern is the rates. I have to tell you that.

Bruce: We got more information that the Native American Tribes all have been paid. That is good. They were paid yesterday and we had several verifications of that. We are looking for more and more activity to come out of the west coast. We are feeling good about that. That is confirmation from people we normally don’t hear from about that. We thought that is good. That is news that doesn’t normally come out about that.

Bruce: One other thing we got which is interesting is that they use wires for international and domestic wire transfers. We had the Swift system for a long time. Tomorrow night which is Wednesday night at midnight Eastern Time, at midnight Russia makes the switch from the Swift System to the new Cips Fentech System for wires bank transfer. That is a big move. That is a great indicator. We believe that other countries in this one sense are moving from west to east instead of east to west for a change. That is really something. That is a good indicator that Russia is making that change tomorrow at midnight.

Bruce:
 Anything else we are hearing is all very positive if the banks will do what it appears they are ready to do without delay. I am encouraged because we are finally at the end of the ride. I am asking you guys to hold on a little bit longer. All the indicators are very positive. I am excited getting this thing under way so we can get our projects started. The President has been talking and representatives of government been talking about infrastructure the last couple of days. It is very exciting. They are looking at 11/2 Trillion dollar program for infrastructure. 


Bruce: There was discussion of about private public discussion in that. There were questions in a news conference about that. I thought this people have no idea. The press, media have no clue about what will go on with us, our projects, and the fact we are looking to help Rebuild America. That is the name of our project. We plan to do that. We can do so in many different ways with all those infrastructure needs. They are sweating about the budget, all those things the media goes on about, and gives the administration a tough time about. They just don’t know what we know. 

Bruce: Money will flow like it never flowed before. We got lots of opportunity if we are allowed to do so legally to create partners with the government in terms of infrastructure, maybe like infrastructure bonds. We talked about that several times on the Big Call. All of that can be done and we won’t even blink an eye in the process. It will be something very easy for us to do, and we will be happy to do it and do it without tax payer’s dollars and do it privately. Give that some thought Administration people who listen to the call. Keep that in mind. We have your backs and we just want you to know that we are ready to get started with this thing and let’s get it done.

Bruce: That is the Intel Rap Up for tonight. Thank you, Pinkroses for doing a marvelous job in transcribing the call. I really appreciate that and it is very wonderful. Everybody who is listening live around the globe by the link and the replay number, thank you. Thank you all for tonight and we are ready to get started. We are ready to work with our veterans with our Veterans Retreat Network. If a veteran is able to work, we will put them to work with Rebuild America or Veterans Retreat Network. We got you covered on that.

Bruce: Thank you all for listening in. Thank you Pastor Steven, Sue, and Bob for all you are doing. Thank you, Big Call Universe for listening in and being so faithful. All have a great night. Good Night Everybody.

THANK YOU BIG CALL AND BRUCE, HUGSSS

Iraq opens its doors to foreign investors with attractive contracts and incentives


Baghdad is seeking during the reconstruction conference to reassure investors in the shadow of corruption and security situation worrying about the efforts to attract investment
13th February, 2018

Baghdad on the second day of a reconstruction conference hosted by Kuwait sought to attract investors who fear the security situation in the oil-rich country, which has been battling for nearly four decades.

"Iraq is open to investors," said Sami al-Araji, chairman of the National Investment Commission in Iraq, to ​​representatives of companies in the private sector.

He said that Iraq is offering the private sector investment in most sectors from agriculture to oil, speaking of 212 projects allocated by Baghdad to local and international investors and include "legal protection."

These include the construction of oil refineries, housing, power plants, airports, railways, trains and roads.

Araji also said that Iraq intends to establish four free zones in the next ten years.

Oil Minister Jabbar Laibi said that Iraq intends to increase its oil production by 2.3 million barrels per day to reach its production by 2020 to 7 million barrels per day.

Iraq currently has the capacity to produce five million barrels, but it produces 4.7 million barrels per day under the agreement to reduce production signed between OPEC oil countries and producers non-members, notably Russia.

The efforts of the Kuwait International Conference on Iraq Reconstruction are focused on gathering commitments and pledges from donors and investors.

Baghdad announced on the first day of the conference that Iraq needs $ 88.2 billion, including $ 20 billion in a hurry and the rest in the medium term.

Iraq relies on international donors, especially the private sector. On Wednesday, the final day of the conference will announce the value of contributions and financial pledges.

But rampant corruption is one of Baghdad's biggest challenges in seeking funds. Iraq ranks 166th out of 176 countries on the list of the most corrupt countries according to the latest list issued by Transparency International.

The head of the legal department of the National Investment Commission Nizar Nasser Hussein said that the laws in Iraq do not differentiate between the domestic investor and foreign, noting that foreign investors can establish Iraqi companies.

He also stressed that Iraq intends to exempt investors from income tax for a period of 10 to 15 years.

Araji gave a brief picture of opportunities, circumstances and investment gains in Iraq, saying investors "face high risks, but they come in return for big profits."

The private sector joined Tuesday's massive reconstruction workshop in Baghdad, seeking to raise some $ 90 billion in financial pledges at the conference to reassure investors by offering financial and legal incentives. LINK

Saddlebred » February 13th, 2018


Family....Keep this in mind as you soak in what is being reported from the KW Conference..........

These are mostly investors. Investors DO NOT want their money sitting around not working for them - not even for a little while. If Iraq is not ready to move NOW on these projects, then the investors will put their money to work somewhere else telling Iraq - call me when you're ready.

Once the investor "moves on" putting their money to work, there is an automatic 50% chance they will not be available/interested when Iraq is ready.

That percentage increases with each passing day. (This is from my personal experience in helping find funding for projects over the last 15-years).

IMO - Iraq is not about to let these investors walk away from the conference uncommitted. The investors are not going to commit without assurances - not just of security, rate, and opportunity - but also immediate start of ROI.

BLAST FROM THE PAST ..IMF

The Iraqi government will also remove restrictions on currency exchange. This will be an important part of encouraging investment in the country as it will signal that currency can be freely exchanged without government restrictions, which creates a more favorable business environment for investors.

Don961 » February 13th, 2018

Perhaps we'll have to find out the conditions laid out in this MOU ... imo (wink)

Washington announces the signing of a memorandum of understanding with Baghdad worth three billion dollars

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Tuesday signed a memorandum of understanding between Baghdad and Washington worth three billion dollars to support Iraq in several areas, saying that his country will remain "the closest ally" of Iraq.

"A memorandum of understanding was signed between Exim Bank of Iraq and the Iraqi Ministry of Finance for $ 3 billion for a number of projects in the field of transport and other fields," Tillerson told a news conference in Kuwait, according to the Sputnik news agency.

"The United States will remain the closest ally of Iraq, which has passed through important stages in its history and we support a stable Iraq," Tillerson said, adding that "the US administration supports Abadi in the fight against corruption."

Saddlebred » February 13th, 2018

Memorandum of Understanding spells out what they will do IF and WHEN Iraq does certain things. It is not a transfer of funds and they are using a bank (banking laws with security, accountability, and risk over-site) to facilitate the transaction WHEN it becomes a done deal. I'm sure WS's company is negotiating many similar deals while in Kuwait.....IMO

Remarks at the Iraqi Reconstruction Conference Session on Private Sector Engagement


Remarks Rex W. Tillerson 
Secretary of State
Kuwait City, Kuwait
February 13, 2018

SECRETARY TILLERSON: (In progress) …on behalf of Iraq. And finally, I want to thank the World Bank, and international finance corporation, for supporting this conference. With the support of the United States and the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS, Iraq has bravely fought and successfully liberated its territory from ISIS.

Four and a half million Iraqis have been freed from tyranny. Over 3.2 million internally displaced Iraqis are now at home or on their way back home. And the Iraqi Government is reasserting control of the Iraq-Syria border.

As we celebrate these victories over extremism and hatred, we know they were hard-won, and they came at a very high price. Much work remains to rebuild Iraq and modernize its economy. Helping Iraq create a government that is inclusive, accountable and transparent will build a society that can counter the extremist ideologies. This will deal ISIS its final blow and demonstrate its failed, violent ideology.

Be assured that the United States will remain Iraq’s strong partner in this endeavor.

Iraq is at an important juncture in its history. We support a united, democratic, federal, and prosperous Iraq, and a stable and viable Iraqi Kurdistan region as part of the Iraqi state.

The Government of Iraq is taking steps to match actions with words to demonstrate that Iraq is open for business, creating meaningful improvements to Iraq’s business environment and attracting much-needed investment for reconstruction projects across Iraq.

The United States will maintain our bilateral relations with Iraq through the Strategic Framework Agreement. Last month, my Deputy Secretary of State Sullivan was in Baghdad to launch our bilateral power-coordinating committee, with a specific focus on trade and commercial engagement.

The United States also supports Iraq’s continued participation in the IMF program to ensure financial stability and promote economic reform.

Iraq’s commitment to difficult but much-needed economic reforms will help earn investors’ trust in the government’s ability and willingness to improve transparency. These reforms will make it easier to do business in the country and to fight corruption.

The United States supports Prime Minister Abadi’s anti-corruption campaign to root out bribery and kickbacks among government officials in the regulatory and government procurement systems. These are all essential ingredients for foreign and domestic investment to thrive. Importantly, Iraq has committed to diversify its economy. Iraq’s economic health needs the resilience to dampen the effects of every up and down swing in the price of oil.

A healthy private sector is essential to creating the jobs and stability that are needed, and it will generate revenues necessary for reconstruction and needed investments in the health, security, and transportation sectors.

Steps towards a stronger private sector will require tough decisions and perseverance, but they will pay off in the future. Doing business in Iraq can be complicated, but the Iraqi market has vast potential. Iraq is building important partnerships within the UN’s Conference on Trade and Development, and we firmly support making Iraq’s regulatory system work for private sector companies, just like President Trump’s doing back home in the U.S.

We are committed to supporting the U.S. private sector in Iraq through the work of the Export-Import Bank, the official U.S. export credit agency, and the Overseas Private Investment Corporation. The U.S. EXIM Bank is committed to enhancing economic cooperation between Iraq and the United States with respect to the trade of goods and services. To signal its strong commitment, the EXIM Bank and Iraq’s ministry of finance will sign today a $3 billion memorandum of understanding that will set a stage for the future cooperation across key sectors of Iraq’s economy, including oil and gas, transportation, and other commodities.

Similarly, OPIC, which supports development through a model of investment rather than aid, has five active projects in Iraq totaling $250 million. It is currently reviewing over $500 million in new proposals in Iraq. These projects are helping increase the supply of affordable housing in the country and helping entrepreneurs and small businesses access financing to start and expand new businesses.

This too will create jobs and opportunity in the region. U.S. businesses are already successfully operating in Iraq. Over the past few months, American companies have completed several commercial agreements to supply Iraq with nearly $2 billion worth of agricultural products, electricity equipment, and renewable energy technologies. Boeing, General Electric, and Honeywell are but a few American companies already doing business in Iraq. Orion, Track Development Group, and Blue Sky Energy are also finalizing or currently implementing new investment projects around the country.

Everyone in this room has an opportunity to help set Iraq on a new course and contribute to its long-term development success. As we heard earlier today, the investment opportunities presented during the conference are just a fraction of what is possible.

I hope investors and financial institutions will use this opportunity to build new economic relationships that will help create future prosperity for Iraq and for America. Together, we can build on the peace that has been earned through enormous sacrifices and forge a stronger Iraq with a brighter future.

Thank all of you for being here this evening, and for your participation. Thank you so much.

Remove all obstacles....hmmmm.....I can think of only ONE obstacle that is preventing them from being "respected" by the international world. Iraq is an overgrown child that has been in the crib for over 12 years....loans have been forgiven (paris club), security has been provided by world forces. Iraq has been coddled, time to grow up......time to put away the bottles, diapers and break down the crib.
