Samson: Karbouli: The currency auction was stolen in broad daylight
What @ jamalalkarboli all joints of the country riddled with corruption and the top of the pyramid is where the auction sells hard currency.
Counterfeiting and collusion operations in it have the sole purpose of stealing the dollar from the central treasury with forged import licenses and volatile instruments and transferring them abroad for the benefit of influential people involved in silent corruption issues.
Their names are diagnosed by the Integrity and Judicial Authority, but their files are not opened by anyone. The Iraqi economy remains the biggest loser. # Auction _ currency _ theft _ it is _ daylight 18 – 1 – 2020

Samson: Dozens of agreements between Myanmar and China to accelerate the Belt and Road Initiative
18th January, 2020
China and Myanmar signed dozens of agreements on Saturday, aiming to accelerate infrastructure projects in Myanmar, as Beijing seeks to boost its influence in a neighbor increasingly alienated from the West

However, Chinese President Xi and Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi signed 33 agreements related to major projects under the Belt and Road Initiative, which represents China’s vision of new trade routes described as “the Silk Road of the 21st century
The two leaders agreed to accelerate the implementation of the China-Myanmar Economic Corridor, a massive multi-billion dollar infrastructure plan, through agreements to build railways linking southwest China with the Indian Ocean, establishing a deep sea port in the troubled Rakhine State, and establishing an economic zone Especially at the border, the establishment of a new city in the commercial capital Yangon
The two have not touched on a controversial giant dam backed by Beijing costing $ 3.6 billion, where work has been stalled since 2011, which reflects the sensitivity surrounding China’s investment in Myanmar, where many are uncomfortable with Beijing’s domination of its smaller neighbor
On Friday, the Chinese president praised the “new era” in the relations between the two countries
“We are drawing a road map for the future that brings back bilateral relations based on brotherhood ties, to overcome difficulties together and assign each other to each other,” he said
Suu Kyi described China as “a great country playing an important role in international affairs and the global economy,” but she urged economic projects to avoid causing environmental damage and benefiting citizens LINK
