Spectra: DOING BUSINESS IN IRAQ: ON TRACK TO WIDER ECONOMIC REFORM Posted by Iraqi Thoughts | Nov 13, 2017 | Economy -A few months into his term Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi laid out his vision for reforms in front of global leaders at the World Economic Forum in Davos. By the summer of 2015 his political reforms had grabbed all the headlines, overshadowing the reforms he was bringing to the military and economy.

But as the fight against Da’ish draws down, the focus has turned back to the economy. On October 31st the World Bank published its Doing Business 2018 report, an annual report “measuring the regulations that enhance business activity and those that constrain it” and ranks “the ease of doing business” across 190 countries.
On the surface, the latest report is no different for Iraq than the previous Doing Business reports. A closer look, however, shows a different story. For example, out of ten indicators that make up an economy’s overall score, Iraq improved on six indicators from 2017.

Spectra: A few months into his term Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi laid out his vision for reforms in front of global leaders at the World Economic Forum in Davos. By the summer of 2015 his political reforms had grabbed all the headlines, overshadowing the reforms he was bringing to the military and economy. But as the fight against Da’ish draws down, the focus has turned back to the economy.

On October 31st the World Bank published its Doing Business 2018 report, an annual report “measuring the regulations that enhance business activity and those that constrain it” and ranks “the ease of doing business” across 190 countries.

On the surface, the latest report is no different for Iraq than the previous Doing Business reports. A closer look, however, shows a different story. For example, out of ten indicators that make up an economy’s overall score, Iraq improved on six indicators from 2017.

In “Starting a Business”, the first indicator of the report, which looks at the number of procedures, time, cost and paid-in minimum capital required to start a limited liability company, Iraq increased from 164 in 2017 to 154 in 2018.

Being 154th in the world is not usually something to brag about, but it is when we consider that Iraq is competing against 189 other countries looking to improve their image and compete for international investment. This is also a commendable improvement given Iraq’s infamous bureaucracy, which can make obtaining the simplest of government services difficult.

Finally, let us not forget that these efforts were undertaken as Iraq fought and defeated the world’s largest terrorist organization. That’s just one service-related indicator. The others had improvements as well by this amount of points:


Spectra: These improvements are a direct result of the work conducted by the Streamlining Procedures Committee which was established by Al-Abadi in the Prime Minister’s Office during January 2015 and was tasked with identifying the services the government provides to Iraqis (1112 services!).

The committee then led the simplification of 108 personal services such as obtaining a driver’s licence or registering property, and 70 non-personal services such as registering a business or obtaining a construction permit, which have a direct result on the economy and improving the environment for the private sector.

The cabinet office established a committee in May 2017 to study the four legal indicators of the Doing Business report and provide recommendations for bringing Iraqi laws and government regulations in-line with international best practices.

To ensure the committee is effective it includes members of the State Council and the Higher Judicial Council. The committee is currently working with the World Bank to study the details and methodology of these indicators.

Their work might not be reflected until next year’s report or even the year after that, as any changes to laws must pass through the Iraqi Council of Representatives. Nonetheless, work is being undertaken to move in the right direction.

Spectra: That sentiment is shared by the World Bank which issued a press release on November 9th confirming that although Iraq’s overall ranking dropped from 165 to 168, it is due to the World Bank introducing some methodology refinement and data revisions that impact how countries rank.

 In the Doing Business 2017 report, the paying taxes indicator was expanded to include post-filing processes—the processes that occur after a firm complies with its regular tax obligations. This year, the methodology was further refined in accordance to best practices.

In particular, the indicator reviewed the way it captures value added tax and corporate income tax audits.” For this reason Iraq’s “Paying Taxes” ranking dropped from 52 in 2017 to 129 in 2018.

Spectra: Saroj Kumar Jha, the World Bank’s Middle East Regional Director is quoted as saying, “As part of its Vision 2030 program, the Government of Iraq is embarking on a substantive reform agenda that builds on the Governmental General Framework Program (2014-2018) which prioritizes institutional economic reforms and private sector development.

The World Bank Group is committed to support its efforts in identifying and pushing forward priority reforms that can help foster the business environment and generate growth and better opportunities for all Iraqis.” We cannot forget that the Doing Business report includes a Distance to Frontier ranking.

“The distance to frontier (DTF) measure shows the distance of each economy to the ‘frontier,’ which represents the best performance observed on each of the indicators across all economies in the Doing Business sample since 2005.

An economy’s distance to frontier is reflected on a scale from 0 to 100, where 0 represents the lowest performance and 100 represents the frontier. The ease of doing business ranking ranges from 1 to 190.”
On this metric, Iraq improved from 44.39 in 2017 to 44.87 in 2018. The above data paints a picture of an imperfect yet improving economy, which is becoming more attractive to investors as the war against Da’ish concludes and as the world sees Iraq’s efforts to reform as serious and having an impact on the ground.

JoeSchmoe: one word can change the whole meaning of a post, if people just don't breeze over it

JoeSchmoe: @chattels right on. I was just curious if you had heard or read anything to back his post

Spectra: KTFA POST -Jesuslovesbaseball said (Post #49) Iraq is preparing for a "big celebration" with full victory The Future of Iraq The Iraqi government instructed, according to sources, to prepare for large celebrations in which Baghdad is the center, in favor of the rest of the provinces, on the occasion of the liberation of all Iraqi cities, in a clear message to the countries of the world that Iraq has seen a clear recovery in the last two years despite the great material losses incurred, Which was estimated by the Prime Minister Haider Abadi $ 100 billion.

According to the sources, the government intends to organize a review of the army forces and other armed formations, including the popular crowd and tribal forces in the center of the capital in Tahrir Square, or Paradise Square, sources say that the decision to organize the military review has not been agreed so far.

Spectra: The sources confirmed that the government plans to deploy screens in the main squares to broadcast national songs, preferring to think as a day of celebrations holiday

The Crisco Kid: @JoeSchmoe If Is A Small Word With A Big Meaning .. ;idn; ;idn;

Dave: howdy all....you folks do not celebrate Remembrance Day?....Holiday here

Dave: and much of Europe I believe
Dave: Did not think a country could join the WTO while under Chapter 7 UN sanctions.......????

[pm]Doug_W: not here Dave

[pm]Doug_W: not sure either?

futuremoney: cant remember...

Dave: then why have sanctions?
Dave: it is all on the UN's website.....

Clay: @Dave I thought sanctions were lifted

Dave: @Clay Thought so also......fighting a war on terrorism threw a monkey wrench on that...

Dave: @Clay The Kuwaiti deal may be figured out.... gas for monies owed......and the liberation of Iraq from iSIL were the UN's talking points from several months ago

Dave: @Clay coincidently Iraq may soon to be announcing their complete liberation from ISIL......... According to the news Rawa the last ISIL stronghold is going down as we speak

[pm]Doug_W: they had a terrible earth quake there
 [pm]Doug_W: thousands hurt hundreds dead

Dave: arrg .....another crisis
Dave: They were planning for celebrations.........

blackgold: @Clay i saw your lol earlier---lol

blackgold: Hey look the Kuwaitis aren't stupid, they have dinar too, just waiting for Iraq to RV or RI, they remember how their currency went.

blackgold: As far as UN and IMF doing anything, good luck
blackgold: Iraq will recover when whoever ---smiling---gives the ok 
​blackgold: Take your pick:

1. The International Atomic energy Agency
2. The International Labor Organization

3. The food and Agriculture Organization

blackgold: Iraq celebrates a lot of things this time of year. believe it or not they have a big Christian celebration every year which takes a lot of security and the gurus use that every year to get everyone excited for nothing. " Ooooh they are celebrating in the Streets" yea right. lol

blackgold: Not saying the celebration coming up isn't good for the liberation
blackgold: Well back to work


11-13-2017   Intel Guru RayRen98   The HCL payments were supposed to start over the weekend at the new rates...and we are still waiting for that information, if it has started or not.  There was also the anticipation of PM Abadi making an announcement over the weekend that would leave no doubt as to where we would be standing.  We have been told that they are setting up for the biggest celebration ever in Iraq, with bleachers and platforms being set up.  Some military people have announced that it’s all over...bar the shouting, and the shouting is that big celebration.  The bank folks were/are all on high expectation for something happening this week.  [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]

11-13-2017  Newshound Guru Breitling  …In other words we’re safe all the way up to $1.17…But if a war actually breaks out…So what’s Iraq’s plan?  Iraq wants to get to $1.17 and then they actually put on the table a different economic plan which get’s them to $3.25.  So that plan is going to be completely put to the wayside until the civil war is over with…IF it comes.  So that’s the threat if they have an Islamic civil war in the Middle East…the $3.25 rate which Iraq wants to get to.  But up to $1.17 you’re fine…I’m not saying they’re going to come out there.  They’ll probably come out way lower and build their way up.  So the turmoil in the middle east is only a threat from $1.17 on up.  Up to $1.17 it is not.  Nothing may come of it but that’s the way you have to plan for it…Here are a couple scenarios that can happen.  And I have a game plan for each and everyone of them.  Some people can stay in and risk because they have a lot more dinar.  Some people, when it revalues at whatever rate, they need to get out.  However it works out but that’s the way it  is.   So remember it’s [Islamic Civil War] a threat to the higher rate not the lower rate… [Post 2 of 2]

11-13-2017   Newshound/Intel Guru Mnt Goat   Article quote:  "The economic adviser to the Prime Minister, the appearance of Mohammed Saleh, Thursday, November 9, 2017 that the territory of northern Iraq will receive his share of the draft federal budget of the country for the year 2018..."  We see Baghdad being tough on the KRG.  Saleh is trying to account for all the oil revenues from that region. Too much past corruption in the KRG. Why does Iraq have to borrow money to meet its deficit each yearThey are a very rich country. I will tell you why – RAMPID CORRUPTION from the top political elite.  The GOI has to clean this up. They are trying to balance the 2018 budget. These are all reasons why they are holding back on the final vote of the budget...  I can assure you they are not holding back the budget due to the RV…

11-13-2017   Guest Newshound Guru Apmcrx  Article from April 26 2017:  "Iraqi banks .... and the road map to Basel 3"   Quotes:  "Based on the results of this experiment, the final modifications and treatments will be made on the components of this ratio in the first half of 2017, and will be applied definitively and effectively from the beginning of 2018."  "Due to the limited time available to the Iraqi banks or the Central Bank of Iraq, we suggest that the time is invested properly and the 2017 allocation for intensive training with the pilot application of all the axes and requirements of Basel 3, with practical application starting from the beginning of 2018"  By the way In CBI you can find plenty articles talking about basel 3 in 2017.  If Basel 3 is international banking compliance then....(fireworks).

11-13-2017  Newshound Guru Breitling  The best strategy you can have is to be able to put different situations in front of you and have a game plan for each and every one of them that comes down.  The top leaders in our country actually put together a strategy, they don’t just pick an A to Z strategy process.  That would mean they know everything, that they would know exactly what’s coming down the road.  And that’s not the case.  That’s never the case.  You have to know the different variables coming down the road and the different possibilities…I want to talk about the rate, there are articles coming out that we have Saudi Arabia pointing their fingers at Iran saying…these missiles coming from Yemen that’s a declaration of war…If there’s going to be an Islamic civil war that’s going to affect Iraq right?  Absolutely it is…remember the Iraqi dinar is completely manipulated..If…IF…there is an Islamic civil war…It’s not a threat to $1.17... [Post 1 of 2  Stay tuned for the rest of the story]

11-13-2017   Newshound Guru Don961  Article:  "6 tons of gold intervened monthly through the airports of Baghdad and Najaf"    trusted by many in Iraq, gold imports beginning to pick up steam ... whenever Iraq begins mining their own gold resources, ... they will not just be bringing in gold from other countries, collecting tariffs and fees ... but they could possibly become the gold hub of the ME ... imo.

Philip Tilton  A wealth manager friend


Baxter: Honestly... I do believe that this Kurd situation... has been a hold up.... the kurds have stolen more money and oil and that Barzani is the crook of all thieves... I think the U S was behind this all the way pushing Abadi into taking over the kurds oil supply lines...and blocking the roads...and shutting the banks down... this certainly should help

Baxter: just have to wait and see

ServantsHeart: @Baxter that was my thought TOO

meatball: @ServantsHeart I have been in this for about 12 years and spent 2 years over there... nothing phases me and I just don't base my life around it

ServantsHeart: What is anyones take on Friday 17th WTO info? Crappola or legit?

Baxter: not hardly

meatball: @ServantsHeart always iron lol
ServantsHeart: @meatball IQDCalls

Baxter: continuing.. I hope
Baxter: they started way back in 04

ServantsHeart: @Baxter Fingers & Toes crossed

Baxter: been a long road

meatball: @ServantsHeart crossing anything I can... pretty uncomfortable at times lol

Baxter: but I do believe... the Kurd situation was a huge factor...IMO

meatball: no doubt

ServantsHeart: @Baxter so many twist and turns you'd think they would finally want to end it and actually be running with the Big Dogs again.

ServantsHeart: @Meatball Too Funny!!

meatball: whole different world and thinking over there

Baxter: well... some of them do... some of them dont...
Baxter: G R E E D

Khazarian mob takedown: Hundreds of Saudi arrests followed by hundreds of U.S. arrests

By Benjamin Fulford, White Dragon Society


The great purge of Khazarian mobsters continues as hundreds of arrests of Saudi princes, generals, and politicians is now being followed up with the 842 sealed indictments against senior Khazarian gangsters in the U.S., confirmed by Pentagon, CIA, and other sources.


The fact is that most politicians in Washington, D.C. have become very rich since joining politics, in ways that cannot be remotely justified by their salaries. This means most have been bribed, and that is why most of them are going to go to jail. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has been deliberately acting senile in public recently in order to have a medical excuse to avoid arrest, NSA sources say.

These same NSA sources are now saying the mass shooting that took place in Las Vegas on October 1 was an attempt by mercenaries working for the G4S security company http://www.g4s.com/ hired by George Bush Sr. to create a distraction in order to kill U.S. President Donald Trump and Saudi Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Sultan (MBS). Trump and MBS were meeting in secret at the suites in the Mandalay Bay Hotel, owned by MBS, to discuss the mass arrest of the perpetrators of the 9/11 terror attacks, these sources say.

Both Trump and MBS were evacuated safely and the arrests have now begun in a way that can no longer be denied by the corporate propaganda media, multiple sources confirm.

As the arrests were taking place, Trump had a secret meeting in Vietnam with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Here is what a CIA source, who had eyes and ears at the meeting, had to say.“There is a lot more than the ‘the sideline meetings and brief handshakes’ that the media has portrayed. The three world leaders (Trump, Putin, and Xi Jinping) met off the record.

President Jokowi [of Indonesia] was there as well (as a representative of the Soekarno M1 gold holdings).

Full Report will be available Thursday Night at midnight……

Sure, okay... you're a little upset. I get it. But not for the reasons stated... hmmm, Baghdad getting ready for a "celebration"?

 "Screens" being put up in Tahir Square? "National Songs" getting ready to be played?  Could it be that Prime Minister Abadi doesn't have any time to meet with you?

Could it be that all the lime light will be on Prime Minister Abadi and the Crown Prince knows Abadi will be busy and wants him to enjoy "his" defining moment?

 I don't know, just a few things that ran through my brain...  Remember, watch what they do... not what they say.

DR. CLARKE (11-12-17) - OPINION: 
Remember this printing from our 8-8-17 Post:
"REMEMBER our Last Post (7-27) when we mentioned how important the “Weather” was?….well, the “GROUND” is about to Shake, BIG TIME!…….find something SOLID to hold on to….”Literally”.
In more ways than one, “Mother Earth”, is about to make a Statement, to remind everyone, that we all must “LIVE HERE”, to “BE HERE”.

LAST WEEK, a Super Typhoon hit the center of Vietnam, equivalent to a Category 4 Hurricane, dumping record rainfall & flooding, just One Week RIGHT BEFORE the APEC's last Meeting this weekend in DA NANG, of the "Leaders Summit" in Vietnam, where all the Leaders of the 21 Countries met this past Friday & Saturday (yesterday the 11th)

TODAY, the Nov. 12th (Sunday), a 7.3 earthquake was registered in IRAQ - Kurdistan to be exact, on the Iraq-Iran Border. This is the largest Earthquake on Record for the country of Iraq. That previous record of 7.2, took place 88 Years Ago.

WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN this week, RIGHT AFTER the Earthquake in IRAQ?.....
ANY correlation or similarity to what just happened One Week after the Typhoon in VIETNAM?

IRAQ earthquake - VIETNAM typhoon......one week apart?.........hmmmm.

You can't make this stuff up......

We already told you what WE THINK, two days ago...... (LINK)

Have a SUPER THANKFUL WEEK!........In our Almighty & Reverent Opinion.
