One solution is to wait to get to the right time to achieve the goal no matter how politically, economically socially that comes with positive results in all Conditions.

Often necessities are behind the waiting process , where the completion of work at this time is not appropriate according to the available data , and often decide to wait for the experience field who are aware of and familiar with all aspects of the environment

Often initiate specialized international research centers to study the economic situation and put in question needed to start operations to achieve economic feasibility through the actual implementation of the plan or plans to determine the appropriate time for it.

We wait in Iraq since the completion of the works that promote the country 's economy and transport time to a better case than it is, but why wait in the light of the availability of all the elements of development that matched an urgent need for many

We wonder who makes the ideal work environment in Iraq? And why Eichera work hard to end the wait state of protracted many? And forgotten that the economic downturn is very harmful and consequences carry many disadvantages in light of population growth  is large.
Who puts the ball in the court of the security situation and that is why the decline in reconstruction operations it knows that the world has specialized companies have the ability to carry out business in compelling and able to protect themselves security conditions, and here we know very well that our condition security is not compelling , and there are security stability in 60 percent of an area of Iraq can start them and be the starting point for the work of the base  and wide.

But we have to look the actual development of the causes of delay and then fit through a serious campaign eradicates diseases that cripple the movement of investment in the country and we seek the completion of major projects in all  sectors.

The next duty requires working towards educating all institutions of the importance of investment and its role in building the country and how many offers from the service of the national economy? And that the employee is not an obstacle to the implementation of the business and creates repulsive elements of global capital, and make national sense mostly on any real interests that do not serve the country but also increase the periods  to wait.

"Why wait" should be the next stage logo cracking all the investment restrictions and thepromotion of labor trends of multiple resources genuinely, as well as the promotion of services and production and address the problems  of

Frank26   The MR...is in its infancy.  When it happens...it will happen very quickly.

I believe that is what is happening due to the private meetings with Abadi and Trump, etc. and I believe they are past talking about the exchange rate.

Trump has given Abadi some advice/direction on what to do inside of Iraq to help with the economic reform.   ...the CBI made an announcement (on the Arabic side) of the CBI website.

This announcement came out with great power to the banks ...but, this is OLD news.

 The fact that they are telling us (at least on the Arabic side) is incredible.  We believe that this announcement ...is extremely important...We believe this is a by-product from the Trump/Abadi meetings.   IMO...with this announcement...they have sped up the MR.

The speed...it will happen very quickly...once we have Mosul.   Another thing...IOO ...they are telling the banks to DO THIS NOW...because they are about to be audited so they are ready to go INTERNATIONAL. 

IMO...the 1st quarter will finish the monetary reform.  The banks better be damn ready.
