    [millionday] note — many find this very important for the country and actually say that it has to be in place before the currency rate is set

    [LBnFL] millionday Fully seated GOI

    [millionday] i personally do not agree but that doesn’t make my opinion any better then anyone else’s

    millionday] LBnFL right that is how they refer it but the whole world calls their gov complete — proxy is done many countries and many s    [millionday] imo

    [millionday] well that is strange  but we shall see why soon enough  i think that they have been working in what jim was saying — like the national conference — lets look at this  also

    [millionday] i find it strange that maliki went to kurdistan with barzani coming right back to fed iraq behind the visit – it makes no sense and hasnt been brought up with explanations concerning it yet

    [millionday] why would they be following each other around – smile  brb with more

    [millionday] Resumed joint committees between the Kurdistan region and the center, work to resolve outstanding issues between the parties, the center’s insistence shown by the National Alliance for the settlement of all files is different on them, particularly oil and gas laws and border demarcation and Article 140, which is the same thing expressed by the coalition of Kurdish blocs, when expressed welcomed the step described as “positive.”

And formed joint committees between the province and the center, after talks adopted the principle of dialogue between the two sides, before so they can be set a deadline for the start of work after a visit by the President of the Kurdistan region, Massoud Barzani to Baghdad recently, during which he met Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, and the President of the House of Representatives, and a number of political leaders, who agreed to activate the joint committees between Baghdad and Erbil to end the differences.

    jimplants] They have it ready just a timing issue imo

    [millionday] i wish i could find ink about iraq being at the stock exchange tomorrow  but i cant

    [millionday] i agree

    [millionday] so the joint committees are to mediate and will probably continue in that roll

    [millionday] spokesman for the coalition of Kurdish blocs MP supporter Tayyip announced for “Center Brief for the Iraqi Media Network,” said the joint committees to resolve outstanding issues between Baghdad and Erbil began its work effectively, and that the priority in problem-solving will be the issues that relate to Balsulttin the executive and legislative branches.

For his part, predicted a member of the House of Representatives for the National Alliance Haitham Jubouri to hold the Finance Committee during the next few days, a meeting to determine the direction between the central government and the Kurdistan region.

    [millionday] between Jubouri in an interview for “Center Brief for the Iraqi Media Network “The committee is determined to solve all the problems after the committee was formed specialized on each file of the outstanding issues, as a committee of oil and gas, financial and other common legal issue of powers.

Prime Minister said during a news conference gathered the President of Kurdistan, Massoud Barzani during the latter’s visit to Baghdad, “It was agreed to activate the joint committees to address all outstanding issues between the federal government and the Kurdistan Regional Government on the back and the base of the higher interest and the Constitution.”

    millionday] Resumed joint committees between the Kurdistan region and the center, work to resolve outstanding issues between the parties, the center’s insistence shown by the National Alliance for the settlement of all files is different on them, particularly oil and gas laws and border demarcation and Article 140, which is the same thing expressed by the coalition of Kurdish blocs,

 when expressed welcomed the step described as “positive.” and formed joint committees between the province and the center, after talks adopted the principle of dialogue between the two sides,

 before so they can be set a deadline for the start of work after a visit by the President of the Kurdistan region, Massoud Barzani to Baghdad earlier this month, and during which he met Prime Minister Nuri al- Maliki, head of the House of Representatives, and a number of political leaders, who agreed to activate the joint committees between Baghdad and Erbil to end the differences.

    millionday] very nice  nice  so this goes on to tell details  this is full of info we are going to read it

    [millionday] Spokesman for the coalition of Kurdish blocs MP supporter Tayyip announced that the joint committees to resolve outstanding issues between Baghdad and Erbil began its work effectively, and that the priority in solving the problems will be the issues that relate to Balsulttin the executive and legislative branches. Believes ok in an interview for “Center Brief for the Iraqi Media Network,”

that the system Federal is a new system for Iraq, it is natural to witness this application differences between the province and the federal government, on the one hand and the federal government and other provinces on the other, but there is of regulating this relationship, namely the Iraqi Constitution and the Federal Court,

hoping that the Federal Court in turn resolve such disputes on the grounds that this court could play an important role in any country to organize the relationship between the federal center and the provinces and regions

    millionday] right that is exactly what they expec-  they expect the federal court to resolve — any problems   here are their priorities

    [millionday] And between the MP that the committees that have been agreed to form between the federal government and the province to resolve outstanding issues have begun their work,

 noting that the priority in solving the problems will be common issues that relate to Balsulttin executive and legislative branches, such as the oil and gas, which, if enacted, it will ensure that solve many problems, as well as issues that aspires everyone to be addressed through the work of those committees,

 counterbalance the Peshmerga and pass a law that the demarcation of the administrative border of the provinces and the security file in the areas of disagreement and Article 140. hinted good that benefits the oil companies in the Kurdistan region, which did not prove within the budget in 2013 can not be solved

    [millionday] if enacted?    However, enactment of a law of oil and gas, pointing to the existence of differences in the understanding of the powers of the province and the federal government on this issue, likely renewed differences on the budget 2014 as happened in the budget this year,

describing those differences as normal and solvable. was balancing this year 2013 has seen many differences between the political blocs and a coalition of Kurdish blocs on the dues of oil companies operating in the region, because the coalition mentioned that the amount that must be paid to those companies is 4 trillion and 200 billion dinars,

while the figures installed with BSA confirms that the remaining amount of those companies is trillion and 600 billion dinars, and thus there is a vast difference between the two figures, which led to the vote on the budget by the political blocs while the coalition of Kurdish blocs refused to vote.

    [millionday] so here we see what the argument is about the oil and gas law

    [jimplants] I thought article 140 was done it seems they are dragging their camels

    [millionday] but if they can say that if it gets enacted then could it be a hold up?

    [millionday] this is not that it isnt done — this is agreement on terms and how they are going to work within it

    [jimplants] Ok i misread

    [millionday] we know the article 140 is done

    letsroll] millionday so the oil companies are being paid in dinar ?

    [millionday] i think half of this report is strange because we have been following this too close  it appears that they are arguing how much and it looks great to see dinar instead of usd  good point

    [jimplants] You got that right i need to step away but i am drawn to see history being made

    [millionday] jimplants i hear ya hun — i was rereading that and it looks as though they want to pass laws to support article 140 — borders ect

    [millionday] this will be going on until we are not here anymore — they will always be working on getting along that is for sure

    [millionday] they have been working down there and setting up so i am not sure why they would put this out or that this is a point they are discussing — very strange

    [millionday] we know they have and we have seen pictures – so we have seen the news like this before – some of it makes sense and some of it is hate to say — just not true

    [LBnFL] Wasn’t Turki supposed to address Parliament today (Tues)?

    millionday] what was it about hun? or supposed to be about?   hello?

    [john77] millionday What is your best guess as to when we will rv?

    [millionday] right faith — the people are im sure growing weary and tired of waiting – i have no guess but with all of this done it has to be close due to the laws in effect – the tariff law and customs was huge – i would expect it to be very close —  so this is what i have to say

    [john77] millionday Is it true that Kuwait and Iraq need to adjust their borders early next month before the tariff law maybe implemented? or was that a rumor?

    [millionday] we have a lot done and they are not giving a date but we know their goal is 3.30 as they reported yesterday

    [millionday] the subject matter is not a bust   rock star — lori — koodos to you hun so let me say this

    [lorijeanmarshall] millionday nawwwwwww, just due diligence. And that fact that I can’t let anything go.

    [millionday] emerging markets are a very important issue and also the companies that are involved are very important as well

    [millionday] as we know there is a lot going on with iraq as well right now so lets check that out and try to hold our hats on   i almost had a coronary    smile    cant even spell it lol  so anyway

    [millionday] The researcher Suhad economic virgins that the dispersion of the Iraqi private sector institutions and distancing itself from some of which led to the erosion of the real role that could be played by the sector in the current phase, which represent the true Transitional market economy.

 He confirmed in a statement (morning): The absence of formal representation for this sector in the forums and international economic forums miss the opportunity on Iraq to bring in foreign investment.

    millionday] This comes at a time in which it invited a number of economists, specialists and academics to find common ground pool private sector representative as a board or body to take its role and real actor in the development process, and drew virgins to the issue of representing the Iraqi private sector in international fora and that there is a lack clear views Official represent it, which may miss the opportunity to define the true reality of the investors to invest in the country.

She pointed to the need to supervise agencies and economic commissions government to establish an official body representing the private sector instead of having bodies or unions represent some of the joints of the private sector union businessmen and the Union of Industrialists and chambers of commerce and others. Confirmed virgins importance of expediting the establishment of hand represent the Iraqi private sector because

    [millionday] wow that virgin really throws us off a little

    [millionday] There are calls from the points of international economic local private sector, but met the individual and do not represent all of the private sector, pointing to the need to unify the visions in this area, calling at the same time government agencies to speed up the establishment or the establishment of an official and recognized to represent the Iraqi private sector in the forums and global economic fora.

And the importance of the presence of the leading private sector sees economic academic d. Majid Baidhani that there is a clear fragmented private-sector organizations.

He told the (morning) that it is necessary to have a representative of the real sector where we note the presence of National Business Council of Iraq, and Exporters Association and other organizations that must unite and intensify their efforts in the service of the economy and actual direct in the process of economic development of the country.

    [millionday] so of course we see they are wanting a national business council in iraq and are saying that they entering the international arena

    [millionday] Baidhani said the survival of these unions and blocs without unite cause the dispersion of the private sector and not being able to consolidation clear on legislative issues and to reconsider the intersecting and overlapping laws.

His new adviser in the Iraqi Institute for Economic Reform, Dr. Ahmed al-Husseini his call for the establishment of the Division in the Ministry of Finance be competent partnership between the public and private sectors and enactment of a law to regulate the practices of their partnership.

 Husseini said in a statement (morning): that the main problem facing the process of paying growth and economic development is the dichotomy is clear between the public and private sectors.

    [belabun] untouched

    [millionday] lol   good grief have to love translations

    [belabun] babysit = watch    ok, shh

    [millionday] noting that there is an urgent need to enable the private sector today after monitoring weaknesses President, said al-Husseini that there is a limited role for the private sector and the incentives for the advancement of this sector is almost non-existent, as The decline in rates of electricity and water supply for drinking and the continued backwardness of transportation networks and the sharp decline in industrial and agricultural capacity formed the most prominent obstacles to the growth and development of the private sector and provide an attractive environment for investment.

    [millionday] so what we have is them trying to bring together all the departments –  that is for the national context and also for the local  –  as we have here  so brb with more

    [millionday] here we go – In an interview, the “morning” with the head of the IMF mission to Iraq Carlo Sidr Allweg on highlights of the report in regards to Iraq,

he said: The work was done primarily through the programs of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) official, which also included financial and technical assistance.

It has provided those programs framework to help the Iraqi government and the Iraqi Central Bank on the application of sound policies, especially public finances of the state, and to contain inflation, and maintain a fixed price for the Iraqi dinar exchange (strong and stable) and the restructuring of external debt Iraqi successfully.   [millionday] smile

    [millionday] The report of the fourth article is a way for regular periodic oversight exercised by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on each of its members. These controls are a relatively new type of relationship between the IMF and Iraq; because we – the IMF – we were and still working with Iraq since 2004.

    schmidtberger] nice

    [millionday] very

    [cookie2] strong and stable — I like

    [millionday] He said Allweg: The report issued by the major recommendations emphasize the importance to take policy-makers Iraqis stand initiatives further towards addressing many of the challenges facing Iraq, in order to realize the potential of Iraq’s enormous economic entirety, and dissemination of the benefits of economic growth to the general population.

Adding that the report contains mentioned on five policy recommendations, will lay, from the standpoint of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the foundations for achieving higher economic growth and lower rates of poverty over the next few years. He stressed that the recommendations are:

    [millionday] First, the government should focus on developing sustainable budgets can finance public spending of the proceeds of oil revenues.

But because government spending is the main channel of the shocks coming from the international oil market, the construction of public financial reserves, which can fortify the spending of declines in oil exports or in the price of oil, is crucial as well.

The government actually owns these reserves in the Development Fund for Iraq (a type of bank accounts that spared to meet the need in the future), but the government should also increase the value of those reserves.

    [millionday] yes they should — note — this is the report i promised you

    [millionday] And that is also important to contain the growth in public spending to avoid large gaps in the budget in the future, in addition to reducing waste in spending as well.

We appreciate the special role played by the public sector in Iraq, but we still see room for continuing to play this role, for example, by reducing the growth of employment / employment in the public sector, and reduce subsidies to the electric power sector, and reform of the public distribution system, owned and state-owned companies to the state.

In addition to the construction of public financial reserves, Iraq can use the savings to upgrade the quality of qualitative social spending and public investment in infrastructure.

    millionday] The second recommendation, it had to be on the central bank to accelerate the pace of liberalization of the foreign exchange market, knowing that he had already started so recently. He served the exchange rate stable Iraq is well over the past few years, thus providing a nominal pillar of the economy, and helping to maintain a low level of inflation in an environment beset by doubts.

But the Iraqi Central Bank had introduced a number of restrictive regulations intense in the last two years in response to concerns that Sawrth on money laundering and foreign exchange flows of illegal out of Iraq. In our view, these regulations quoted a great deal of legitimate demand for foreign currencies to the parallel market, and as a result, has risen a price difference between the official and parallel exchange, reaching 8 percent in the month of April.

    [millionday] Explaining that the third recommendation drawn to the importance of continuing to exercise prudent management of Iraq’s foreign currency reserves held by the Central Bank of Iraq and the Development Fund for Iraq.

The IMF supports strongly the independence of the Central Bank of Iraq, and the need for the Bank to manage international reserves without political interference in order to support the value of the Iraqi dinar. We also believe that it is also important to maintain the current separation between the process of international reserves which are managed automatically from the central bank alone, and between the public financial reserves, which are controlled by the government, and in the Development Fund for Iraq. And must continue to wisely invest these reserves in liquid assets to a large extent.

    [millionday] He noted that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) urged Iraq to make progress in financial sector reform.

He said that we appreciate what Iraq’s progress in improving process control and restructuring of banks Rasheed and Rafidain bank. But the financial system in Iraq is still too late to grow more dangerous, in the presence of levels of deposit, credit, much lower than the averages of the deposit and credit in the Middle East and North Africa.

The final recommendation came out a little bit about our basic framework, but is gaining critical to economic growth in Iraq. We see a critical need for structural reforms to promote private sector growth and job creation.

    [millionday] The latest program from among those programs was “a standby credit agreement”, which was adopted to approve in the year 2010, and expired in February 2013.

Therefore, we are moving at the present time to establish a relationship independent of free and equal between Iraq and the International Monetary Fund, but we still hope that you can this relationship to help Iraq, and we stand ready, of course, to return to a level of cooperation together more intense, if they want government Iraq;

Our ultimate goal is to support the Iraqi people, and will provide this support in the best way we can use. And evaluation of the Fund for the latest performance record of the Iraqi economy, and what are the prospects for this economy?

    [millionday] Said Allweg was still recent developments for the growth of the entire positive macroeconomic widely, and the credit for this is due, in a great degree of it, to the high volume of oil exports. It surpassed the economic growth rate of 8 percent in 2012, and is likely to rise to 9 percent in 2013 when oil production rises to the level of 3.3 million barrels per day.

As well as the inflation rate fell from 6 percent at year-end 2011 to 3.6 percent at the end of last year, and should rise only a slight rise to about 5 percent in 2013.

Also, the external situation of Iraq is also strong. Stressing that the international reserves of the Central Bank of Iraq has risen from $ 61 billion at year-end 2011 to $ 70 billion at year-end 2012.

The fiscal reserves to the Development Fund for Iraq has risen is the other (16.5) billion U.S. dollars to 18 billion U.S. dollars.

    [millionday] this is the recommendations of the imf for iraq and its coming into what they have been working on since 2004

    [millionday] they are wanting them to do many things but most of all separate the gov money and the country funds — also to move forward with all plans for the stable dinar

    [millionday] the report we read last year about the growth rate being 9% they have retracted  and stated that the growth will be much more

7-24-2013 Enorrste:  Referencing IMF Documents:   I’m pleased that the IMF thinks the fixed rate has been a success.  Whoopee.  At the same time, I hate it when they say the status quo should be maintained “for the foreseeable future.”  Let’s hope they cannot see very far.  On the positive side, though, they are clearly calling for Iraq to prepare to float its currency.  It really can’t get much clearer than that.  “to accommodate a possible real exchange rate appreciation.“  It would appear that the IMF is expecting a gradual rise over time to some level, after which they will do an actual RV to a “real exchange rate.”  How cool would that be?

I just wish we knew what they mean by “middle term.” Is that a few months, or a few years? Only time will tell. Let’s just hope the Turki brings the “surprise” he promised and that it is the beginning of the float process. Once that starts, anything could happen. Heck, we could get to $1 by January and then the CBI could RV to $3.50. Wouldn’t that be cool?

– U. S. crude oil prices fell on Wednesday after data on U. S. home sales beat expectations and sent the dollar rising.
Better-than-expected economic indicators in the U. S. often strengthen the greenback by fanning expectations that the Federal Reserve will move closer to tapering and eventually ending monetary stimulus measures such as asset purchases that have weakened the greenback in recent years to spur recovery.
A stronger dollar often makes oil a less attractive commodity in dollar-denominated exchanges.
On the New York Mercantile Exchange, light sweet crude futures for delivery in September traded down 1. 92% at USD105. 17 a barrel on Wednesday, off from a session high of USD107. 53 and up from an earlier session low of USD105. 17.
The Commerce Department reported earlier U. S. new home sales jumped 8. 3% to 497,000 units, their highest level since May 2008.
Analysts were expecting new home sales to rise 1. 8% to 482,000, which bolstered the dollar.
The better-than-expected numbers strengthened the greenback by boosting hopes that the Federal Reserve will move closer to tapering and eventually ending monetary stimulus measures such as asset purchases.
Also bearish for oil, a preliminary reading of China’s HSBC manufacturing PMI fell to 47. 7 in July from a final reading of 48. 2 last month. Analysts had expected the index to rise to 48. 6. A reading below 50 indicates a contraction.
China is the world’s second largest consumer of crude oil.
Supply data in the U. S. failed to bring in the buyers on Wednesday.
The U. S. Energy Information Administration said in its weekly report that U. S. crude oil inventories fell by 2. 8 million barrels in the week ending July 19, exceeding expectations for a decline of 2. 4 million barrels.
Total U. S. crude oil inventories stood at 364. 2 million barrels as of last week.

[ONEDOWN] VitaBella read this: 4:16 PM (chatter] Euronex at the ny stock EXCHANGE…..TODAY…. As i spent hours looking into this ….THIS company will join the nyse,,,,and they represent which is a wholly owned subsidiary of nyse Euronext, … Iraq …Jordan Kuwait Lebanon Morocco Oman Palestine Qatar Saudi Arabia Syria Tunisia they will be international……

[mort] tonight we are all going to be very rich is the word i got

[transitions] I saw a request for a repost. The information on Euronex is vital. Iraq is on the NYSE, and is international. Tony could not say it because the official closing of bell was needed. The conglomeration of the Middle East countries to formulate Euronex, is a tribute to the dedication and cooperation of these countries to be accepted into the NYSE. That means trading international can commence, with the approval of tariff and taxes, and most importantly, an international currency with value. This is my interpretation and we await for our participation for currency exchange.

[sonnayhwh] Don’t want to rain on anyone’s parade, since there’s so much to be excited about, but I didn’t hear much in Mr. Moon’s speech that spoke of a r/v. But I did hear a lot of Agenda 21 jargon. . . just sayin’. grin

Diogenes] sonnayhwh The Ban Ki Moon speech was supposed to be about the SSE with veiled reference to the global reset. Not the RV. However, IMO with the new beginnings of a global economic currency reset, come a lot of agendas. We need to be ready with our agenda. JMO

[MAC] Diogenes so was there a veiled reference, IYO?

[sonnayhwh] Diogenes – Sounds like a lot of horses are gonna be bustin’ out of the gate at the same time. To the victor goes the spoils! Grin
