The Minister of Planning Dr. Salman Al-Jumaili stressed that there are many tracks that should be properly addressed in order to achieve the desired economic and development reform.
"Our experience over the last four years has been a lot of challenges that have hindered the development efforts that were planned, including many important strategic projects," Al-Jumaili said during a meeting with the ministry's agents and heads of state and public officials on the occasion of Eid al-Adha. The page of terrorism has been surpassed by the sacrifices made by the Iraqis in all their colors and Iraq has become fully secure today. Eid al-Adha has passed without any terrorist incident being recorded. We have also succeeded in facing the other challenge of low revenues as the result of the decline in oil prices. He stressed that the government in all its joints are now mobilizing all their energies to overcome the effects of the crisis and respond to the demands of the people in all the provinces through work to provide basic services to citizens. Indicating that today we benefit from financial allocations, however small and put them in the right track with a view to implementing projects that we have not been able to implement in years of financial abundance for many reasons.
