The United Nations committee charged with overseeing the process of Iraq paying compensation to Kuwait ended its mandate 30 years after its formation and paid $52.4 billion, while the Security Council in New York is scheduled to approve on February 22 the dissolution of the committee, according to the Iraqi News Agency.
The Committee was established in May 1991 under Resolution No. 692 of the UN Security Council, and was responsible for managing financial compensation to Iraq, which is deducted at a rate of 5% imposed on sales of oil and petroleum products from Iraq.
During its mandate, the committee decided about 2.7 million compensation requests, of which $52.4 billion was paid out of about $352 billion claimed, the last of which was on January 13, with a value of about $630 million, according to the committee’s report.
The final report confirmed that “this amount represents” the end of the commission’s mandate after more than 30 years, and while this period of time appears to be long, it is important to note that the settlement of 2.7 million applications, with a total amount estimated at $352 billion during this period, is unconstitutional.

Economic Development And Media
Thursday 10 February 2022 141 Dr.. Hamed Rahim Economic development can be described as a revolution of economic change, as it includes a set of short, medium and long-term plans and policies aimed at transforming the course of economic activity from the structure of underdevelopment and the accompanying indicators to other horizons based on new foundations that express a different image from what came before.
In addition to the literature and school differences that have been theorized, especially in the post-World War II era to this day, the practical and applied aspect provided us with a clear conception of the meaning of the economic revolution and the fundamental transformations, including the state of Malaysia, which is one of the important developmental experiences as indicators were Poverty in 1970 was more than 52%, and its exports of rubber and raw wood did not exceed a few million dollars,
and it was a country mired in conflicts, ignorance and class discrimination, but now the poverty rate is very low, reaching 5% in 2019 and the rate of its exports after 2000 until now. Over $200 billion, more than 65% of them are industrial exports, and no less than 46% are industrial exports.
They are goods with high technological content, and they are now urbanly developed, and a destination for global tourism, and occupy a very advanced position in the human development index and their universities are in advanced rankings. and others, and all of this was the result of discreet planning coupled with the will Political and effective performance on the ground, and then the difference between the structure of underdevelopment and the developmental transformation that they desired, and this practical application of the essence of the idea of the economic revolution.
Accordingly, we in Iraq need a lot for the development transformation that starts from the political variable downwards, and we would like here to highlight an important aspect of the economic movement represented by the large investments and projects that the government has embarked on or are under implementation (and it is assumed) that they are part of a comprehensive movement to change the structure of underdevelopment Al-Qathim for decades,
the transformations need a supportive effort, especially in our current complex situations, and finding this needs (a media discourse) that explains to the audience the reality of what is going on, and then obtaining support, support and positive interaction from the public, and all of this does not exist, but rather the loud voice in evaluating projects such as Al-Faw port, the Chinese agreement, and French, Korean and other investments are within reach of ideological channels, as well as some intruders without specialization reside and speak, and all of this has created a blurring of understanding and even indifference to large social segments, and this is shown through sensors such as social media and the comments it contains about those projects .
The transition towards implementing a new economic vision and new projects and others (if there is a tendency to do so) requires exceptional efforts, and one of these is the (media strategy) which is based on the establishment of an effective media (platform) that clarifies all things transparently and documents the ongoing works and contracts and their importance to the simple public as well as The competent elites, independence and discrimination are made for this platform, and this is a prerequisite for the economic revolution, and I repeat (if there is a trend So).

Central Between Supporting Projects And Initiatives To Eradicate Poverty And Inflation
Thursday 10 February 2022 106 Baghdad: Haider Falih Al-Rubaie
Specialists in economic affairs urged the need to create greater understandings between monetary and financial policies that would revitalize the Iraqi economy, indicating that the expansion of the cash reserve in the Central Bank should be invested in launching real initiatives that would support the development process and contribute to supporting industrial and agricultural projects. As well as allocating part of those reserves to finance the construction of infrastructure projects, and the adoption of other initiatives that reduce inflation and poverty levels.
And the Deputy Governor of the Central Bank, Ihsan Shamran Al-Yasiri, announced in a statement to the Iraqi News Agency (INA), that “the Central Bank’s hard currency reserves exceeded the $64 billion barrier at the beginning of February 2022, and the gold assets in the Central Bank’s possession exceeded 96 tons within the reserves. “.
Coordination between the two policies
Despite the great economic benefit that the volume of cash reserves can achieve, the economist, Manaf Al-Sayegh, believes during his speech to Al-Sabah that “central banks should have a monetary strategy that leads to strengthening the work of fiscal policy, as well as to create balance in terms of supplying Cash to deal with cases of inflation, as well as to activate investments, foreign trade and local industries, so I do not find a clear policy in these directions, and there is no strategy for coordinating with fiscal policy to build policies capable of reviving economic activity, creating job opportunities and revitalizing the private sector.
Al-Sayegh stressed the need for the Central Bank to adopt policies that would revitalize the reality of the private sector to achieve two benefits, the first is to create job opportunities, and the second is to increase various activities that can revive the economy and move the wheel of investments and its diversity, as well as creating financial savings that are added to the gross domestic product.
Lack Of Strategy
According to the expert Al-Sayegh, the previous initiatives of the Central Bank “did not achieve their goals” due to the absence of a clear strategy for the work of these initiatives, and the absence of follow-up with applicants for small and medium projects, indicating that the continuous follow-up ensures the success of these projects and knowledge of the extent to which the project has reached, as the most prominent benefit These loans are the realization of projects that have a real presence in the market and are able to provide job opportunities.
Al-Sayegh expressed his surprise at not specifying the type of small and medium-sized enterprises that should be granted financial loans, as the society’s needs for activities, goods and services must be determined in order to know the small and medium-sized enterprises that should be supported, noting that “initiatives are not in the amount allocated to them, but through the economic benefit that can be To achieve them, indicating that the economic reality has not seen any benefit from these initiatives since their inception,” he said speaker.
Industry and Agriculture
The speaker believes, the necessity of “activating small and medium industries, and activating agricultural projects to encourage workers in this sector, and then this will lead to the creation of important job opportunities in two important sectors,” suggesting at the same time “the exploitation of part of the funds available with the Central Bank to redevelop the infrastructure.” Through an agreement with international companies, this matter will achieve many achievements, including employing the unemployed and renewing infrastructure in line with the population expansion taking place in Iraq, as well as creating a huge and large economic activity.
In turn, the economist, Manar Al-Obaidi, expressed his astonishment at the presence of high foreign reserves in a country where the exchange rate is fixed and non-floating and the central bank controls the quantity of the supply of dollars in the local market, describing keeping this large amount without moving it to revitalize the economy “a person hoarding gold while he is inhabited.” In a ruined house that does not have the basic services of life.”
Al-Obaidi believes that “it is more useful, instead of raising foreign reserves, to work on launching various initiatives that contribute to strengthening the Iraqi economy and work to build infrastructure projects for the country by financing these projects, and also work to adopt initiatives that reduce inflation and poverty levels.”
Al-Obaidi stressed the need for the Central Bank to provide financing for real industrial, agricultural and tourism projects, and to launch financing initiatives to support education and increase human capital, as well as other initiatives to support the poor and destitute classes, and that its goal is to work on building a sustainable economy and work on Reducing the level of poverty and illiteracy and reducing the level of inflation.
