because we can not remain idle and the world around us achieve benefits after benefits may reach us to The inability to deal with our problems, especially as the labor force is supported annually by "one million" in return, there are no outlets to prevent them.

It is not harmful to take advantage of the global experience and employ it to serve the Iraqi economy after the nationalization of it, and there are experiences from countries in the world can work to benefit from them to be a good aid to our economy, which suffers a decline in all its
joints.

It is time to move a moment and move towards development, and it is not bad to use the centers of economic development or effective planning centers internationally to be a good aid to us and complement our national expertise to work on building an effective productive economy that achieves a multiplicity of resources and supports the federal budget and achieve the surplus in abundance and abundance of wealth. It is not difficult if accompanied by
strong will .

We must start a new stage that can be called an economic revolution that stems from the national feeling to be a catalyst for hard work away from narrow personal benefits in the public and private sectors and to be serious about changing the shape of the national economy towards a
better stage .

Iraqi Farmers fight against Imported Goods, Corruption

By Adnan Abu Zeed for Al Monitor. Any opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Iraq Business News. 

The Tureibil crossing, or more commonly known as the Karameh border crossing, between Jordan and Iraq reopened in early September in tandem with the opening of another border crossing with Saudi Arabia. This means that more foreign goods are likely to flow into the Iraqi market, which already lacks national products, especially food and agricultural goods.

The prospects for increased imports, which is not good news for the local production industry in Iraq, prompted parliament’s Agriculture, Water and Marshlands Committee on Aug. 14 to accuse the Ministry of Agriculture of mismanagement and confusion in supporting these foreign goods, which caused the local market to become flooded with imported products.

Mohammed Mansouri, an expert on local livestock, warns against “a catastrophe in the sector of livestock and agriculture in Iraq,” urging the government to work “on achieving food security.”

However, the failure of agricultural projects in Iraq is not only the result of poor planning and management, but also a “corrupt agenda seeking to keep this sector lagging so as to continue relying on imports,” said Ali al-Badiri, a member of the Agriculture, Water and Marshlands Committee, in a media statement Aug. 24. “Impeding the cultivation of wheat crops is a conspiracy, as this cultivation has become a threat to the investments of the corrupted,” he said.

In the same vein, Suhaila Abbas, the head of the Agriculture Committee of the Babil Governorate Council, told Al-Monitor, “Linking food security to importation is not due to technical problems such as drought or the rudimentary irrigation and land treatments techniques, as these can be addressed through development plans. This is, however, due to political reasons. Many of Iraq’s neighbors have an interest in keeping Iraq unable to become self-sufficient in terms of food, so it continues importing food products.”
