Summary: Growth has been robust with low inflation. Sustaining this good performance and addressing key risks will require a second generation of policy upgrades. A new government took office in 2016 with a commitment to reforms that, if implemented, would place Vietnam in a sound position to achieve its ambitious development goals.

According to those documents, the "Hoshyar Zebari, a connecting Suleiman" was sincere elements and cooperating for the duration of his relationship with the Iraqi intelligence service at the time, as he was working as an index to the Iraqi Embassy in Romania.

But the intensity of the attention of the intelligence service under Saddam Bzibara system and services that were provided, the intelligence chief approached the presidency to keep him in the locations in which it operates and Astiinah from any administrative procedures as well as granting other facilities referred to in the documents.

The external financing will also be covered by project loans from the U.S. government ($2.7 billion, ¶11), Germany (€167 million, i.e. the €500 million disbursed over three years, ¶11), JICA ($323 million), the World Bank ($120 million), Italy ($66 million), and the Islamic Development Bank ($54 million).

Tex says to JETSET(3:35 PM):

JETSET says to _firefly_(3:36 PM):

Tex says to JETSET(3:36 PM):

I may have to live in it...lol

_firefly_ says to rcookie(3:36 PM):

Love those numbers.

_firefly_ says to rcookie(3:38 PM):

Increase stability = increased international investment

rcookie says(3:38 PM):

The domestic financing will be covered by the issuance of Treasury bills (ID 14.9 trillion), out of which most (up to ID 12.6 trillion) will be refinanced by commercial banks at the discount window of the CBI, the issuance of national bonds for the general public (ID 5 trillion), and the drawdown of government deposits in the banking sector (ID 4 trillion). The amount of central bank indirect monetary financing will be revisited on the occasion of the first review in light of the success in raising domestic financing by other means. If oil revenue is higher than programmed, the government commits to save the excess oil revenue collected over the amount programmed in order to reduce the indirect monetary financing of the budget deficit by the CBI.

rcookie says to _firefly_(3:38 PM):

Tex says to rcookie(3:38 PM):

Tex says to JETSET(3:45 PM):

That sounds like a good plan , they would be delighted for sure

rcookie says(3:45 PM):

C.23.Revenue ReformsIn order to strengthen revenue, the government will implement the following measures:Broaden the tax base of wages. The Council of Ministers approved a decision to include all salaries and wages of non-military government employees above grade 2 including base salary, supplemental pay, bonuses, overtime and any other allocations (excluding allocations for wife and children), in the taxable base (PA, Table 5). This decision is expected to yield additional tax revenue of ID 0.3 trillion in 2016 and ID 0.6 trillion in 2017 when it will be implemented for the full year.

rcookie says(3:46 PM):

Audit the financial statements of the Development Fund for Iraq and Successor Account 300/600 at the CBI to check that all oil revenue reaches the treasury and monitor the use of the resources deposited in that account. The Ministry of Finance will continue to have all the transactions moving the balance of its foreign exchange account 300/600 at the CBI audited by an international audit company every six month and will post the audit reports on its external website within six months after the end of each audited semester (SB, Table 5).

JETSET says to Tex(3:47 PM):

i'm sure they love it!

(3:47 PM)Canucklady was kicked out by Canucklady!

rcookie says(3:47 PM):

rcookie says(3:49 PM):

HERES THE UNDERSTANDING WHERE THE VAT WE READ ABOUT CAME FROM....NOT OSMOSIS....IMF..

rcookie says(3:50 PM):

Conduct diagnostics of the tax and customs codes to simplify them and broaden the tax base. The Ministry of Finance will, by end-September 2016, prepare tax policy measures to increase tax and customs revenue, with technical assistance from the IMF and the World Bank. Such measures could include the introduction of a value added tax6 or sales tax, a personal income tax on pension earners, excise taxes, ... . The government will introduce tax policy measures to increase non-oil tax revenue in the 2017 draft budget.

rcookie says(3:50 PM):

SO THIS IS SOMETHING YOU CAN GUARANTEE YOU WILL SEE AS PART OF 2017 BUDGET..

rcookie says(3:50 PM):

NON OIL TAX REVENUES...

rcookie says(3:52 PM):

rcookie says(3:52 PM):

Conduct diagnostics of the tax and customs administrations with a view to modernize them and broaden the tax base, with technical assistance from the IMF, the World Bank, the World Customs Organization, and the United Nations Conference for Trade and Development (UNCTAD). The Ministry of Finance will, by end-December 2016, propose a strategy to strengthen the tax and customs administration, with technical assistance from the IMF and the World Bank. The Customs Administration will, by end-August 2016, propose a strategy to implement the UNCTAD ASYCUDA information system in its administration.

Tex says to rcookie(3:53 PM):

All that would need IQD value increase wouldn't it.????

rcookie says(3:55 PM):

AS PER UNCTAD....THE MoF WILL BY END OF 2016 PROPOSE STRATEGY TO STRENGTHEN THE TAX ^ CUSTOMS ADMINISTRATION WITH TA FROM THE IMF & WB...WHO WILL IN TURN....PROPOSE A STRATEGY TO IMPLEMNT THE UNCTAD INFORMATION SYSTEMS INTO ITS ADMINISTRATION....

rcookie says(3:56 PM):

conducting audits by the Board of Supreme Audit (BSA) of the wage and pension recipients by end-August 2016 to first identify, and then cancel payments to, ghost workers and ghost pensioners (two SB, Table 5); and

changing, by end-December 2016, the parameters of the public pension system as proposed by the World Bank.7

rcookie says(4:11 PM):

7 According to the World Bank, amending the pension law 9/2014 to introduce the following parametric changes would yield cumulative savings of over ID 1 trillion through 2018 and ID 31 trillion through 2028: (1) decreasing the accrual rate from 2.5 percent to 1.5 percent; (2) increasing the minimum length of service from 15 years to 20 years for pension salary eligibility; (3) changing the base wage for pension calculation from the last three years to the last seven years; and (4) reducing the qualifying conditions for survivorship pensions to only spouses, parents, and children (World Bank, Iraq - Emergency Fiscal Stabilization, Energy Sustainability, and State-Owned Enterprise Transparency Development Policy Financing, December 2015, ¶52, p.24).

Thank you for the News!!

rcookie says to MrsBGG(4:19 PM):

GE MRS BGG!!.......YVW..

rcookie says to MrsBGG(4:20 PM):

AND THIS IS WHY COLLECTING THE ELECTRICITY TAXES ELECTRONICALLY....AS RECENT AS TODAY IS SO IMPORTANT...

rcookie says to MrsBGG(4:20 PM):

OOPS..

rcookie says(4:21 PM):

Reform the electricity sector by a combination of the following measures:

o implementing the progressive electricity tariff schedule designed by the Ministry of Electricity in 2015, which could yield nearly ID 2.2 trillion (1.8 percent of non-oil GDP) in additional revenue for the electricity sector; the additional revenues will be used to finance off-budget investment

rcookie says(4:22 PM):

and repay bank loans of the electricity companies;8 the tariff increase will not increase the tariff for the consumption below 600 kilowatts per month in order to shield the poorest; and

rcookie says(4:23 PM):

reducing gas flaring by using it for electricity production, which, according to the World Bank, could yield about ID 1.4 trillion ($1.2 billion, or 1.1 percent of non-oil GDP) in budget savings per year with an upfront cost of $0.5 billion starting in 2017:9 to that end, the Ministry of Oil paid all its 2015 arrears to the Basra Gas Company (BGC) amounting to $204 million, will pay its outstanding 2016 arrears of $140 million by end-May, will pay its estimated remaining gas purchase from BCG in 2016 amounting to $700 million within the contractual 45 day-period after billing, and will use at least $145 million of its investment budget in 2016 to finance the gas flaring-reducing investment project at the BGC.

rcookie says(4:24 PM):

SOME OTHER THINGS THESE SLACKERS ARE DOING BEHIND THE SCENES PER IMF.......

rcookie says(4:25 PM):

AGAIN NOT GURUS.....THROWING SPAGHETTI AGAINST THE WALL...

rcookie says(4:26 PM):

Reform the Food Public Distribution System (PDS).10 The Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs (MOLSA) is setting up a Proxy Means Testing (PMT) data base with the assistance of the World Bank. When that database is completed, the MOLSA will have a database that will be used to determine eligibility for cash transfers based on available budget. This same database could be utilized by other programs (i.e. PDS) to target their assistance (cash or in-kind) to the poor households based on their welfare scores as determined by the PMT.

rcookie says(4:27 PM):

AGAIN... UCH MUCH IMPROVEMENT OF ACURACY/TRANSPARENCY & TIMLINESS TOWARD THEIR ECONOMIC DATA REPORTING....

MrsBGG says to rcookie(4:28 PM):

:D

rcookie says(4:29 PM):

AND...WHY ARE THOSE ELECTRICITY NUMBERS A YAWNER FOR US...BUT SO CRITICAL TO AN ECONOMY REINVENTING ITSELF LIKE IRAQ'S...

rcookie says(4:29 PM):

8 In 2015, total electricity consumption was 42 TWh, revenue amounted to ID 0.8 trillion while the cost of producing electricity, with oil supplied at $5 per barrel, amounted to ID 5 trillion. This tariff increase has the potential to increase the electricity sales to ID 3 trillion and reduce the gap with production cost to ID 2 trillion. In 2015, the central government consumed 4.5 TWh. This tariff increase will increase the cost of its electricity bill from ID 73 billion in 2015 to ID 675 billion in 2016, compared to ID 360 billion in the 2016 budget. Credits for electricity consumption were revised upwards accordingly in the revised fiscal program for 2016 (¶20).

rcookie says(4:31 PM):

AND WHY THE PDS (PUBLIC DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM) IS SO IMPORTANT TO THEM...

rcookie says(4:32 PM):

10 Moving to a more targeted PDS could yield annual savings of up to ID 1.8 trillion (1.4 percent of non-oil GDP). See“Food and Electricity Subsidies” in IMF Country Report No. 15/236. Iraq: Selected Issues.

MrsBGG says to rcookie(4:32 PM):

Thank you for explaining the acronym for us :)

MrsBGG says to rcookie(4:33 PM):

Mr. BGG actually still throws noodles/spaghetti on the wall to see if the noodles are done :D

rcookie says(4:33 PM):

AANUAL SAVINGS OF 1.8 TRILLION IQD...OR...1.4% OF NON OIL GDP BY IMPLEMENTING THIS DATABASE SYSTEM...

(4:34 PM)Westex1 was kicked out by Westex1!

rcookie says to MrsBGG(4:34 PM):

LOL:D

rcookie says(4:35 PM):

THIS IS THE LAST ONE IN EXPENDITURE REFORMS.....AND THE NUMBERS ARE STAGGERING..

rcookie says(4:36 PM):

Reform state-owned enterprises (SOEs). Non-financial SOEs in Iraq include a large variety of public entities, including ministries’ directorates/departments, and bodies. There are 176 SOEs in Iraq, with over 550,000 employees, of whom 30 to 50 percent are estimated to represent excess labor. Many of these SOEs have limited rationale beyond providing public employment. As a result, they are structurally loss-making and present a large burden for public finances. The exact scope and scale of the economic, financial and fiscal cost that SOEs represent in Iraq is, however, unknown due to poor reporting of key financial and economic statistics on the 176 non-financial SOEs. Similarly, the transparency of financial SOEs is limited. With the assistance of the World Bank, the government has started to set up a database to monitor the fiscal risks of non-financial SOEs. Building on this information, the government will elaborate measures to restructure the non-financial SOEs on the occasion of future reviews of this SBA.

rcookie says(4:36 PM):

THERE USED TO BE 192 SOE'S...NOW DOWN TO 176..

rcookie says(4:37 PM):

550,000 EMPLOYEES....30-50% ARE EXCESS LABOR....

rcookie says(4:38 PM):

MEANING UP TO HALF OF THE LABOR FORCE THEY ARE PAYING FOR EVERYMONTH ARE UNNECESSARY!!!!!

rcookie says(4:43 PM):

WITH MANY MORE CLASSIFIED AS SERVING NO PURPOSE BEYOND PROVIDING PUBLIC EMPLOYMENT...ARE STRUCTURALLY LOSS BURDENS OF STATE FINANCES....WHICH CANNOT EVEN TRULY BE ACCURATLY MEASURED BECAUSE OF THE POOR FINANCIAL REPORTING SYSTEMS IN IRAQ.....SO THE NUMBERS ARE PROBABLY QUITE WORSE.....SO THE WB HAS SET UP A DATABASE TO MONITOR THE FINANCIAL RISKS OF THESE NON FINANCIAL SOE'S TOWARD FUTURE RESTRUCTURING.......IN THE EXACT SAME WAY THAT THEY ADDRESSED THE 2 SOB'S...WHICH THEY ARE ABOUT TO REVEAL TO THE WORLD........
