The Iraqi seminar, conducted in light of the World Bank Report, asserted many issues on the Iraqi economy. World Bank Report, in particular, revealed that poor financial infrastructures have been keeping economic development at a slow phase.

World Bank report on Iraqi economy was concluded with a handy resolution. The report recommended the promotion of government-owned banks, as well as, modernization of the regulatory framework. Nonetheless, the World Bank report urged for a dramatic reform on the Iraqi economy to realize dramatic growth and development, too.
The Iraqi government recently called for the support of Britain for assistance in the lifting of Chapter VII sanctions against the Iraqi economy. Of course, it is also noteworthy that Iraqi human rights organizations are advocating withdrawal of Chapter VII sanctions by virtue of economic freedom. Human rights advocates even asked for a humanitarian pause on the Arab Summit Day.
House of Representatives First Deputy Chairman Suhail, in a meeting with the Political Affairs Head and Italian Ambassador, expressed the interest of the government to ask for Italy’s help in the process of liberating the Iraqi economy from Chapter VII sanctions. The First Deputy Chairman also stressed out the importance of strengthening parliamentary relations between Italy and Iraq.
