Time : 2023/03/13 22:23:45

The economist, Abdul Rahman Al-Mashhadani, described the adoption of a three-year budget as a “great achievement.”

Al-Mashhadani said for a program {without accusation} broadcast by Al-Furat satellite channel on Monday evening, that: “The adoption of a three-year budget is a great achievement, and this is in force in several countries, including Iran and Egypt, and expectations that the budget will be passed easily in the House of Representatives with a political consensus on it.”

“What Baghdad sent 400 billion dinars is a freeze on the Federal Court’s decision on another title by considering it loans to Kurdistan,” he said.


Al-Mashhadani pointed out that “depositing the revenues of the college of oil produced in the region in a bank account enables the head of the regional government or whoever authorizes him to dispose of the region’s oil account.”

“The fund to finance housing and school projects guaranteed 400 billion dinars, and Prime Minister Mohamed Shia al-Sudani will prevent sovereign guarantees for companies wishing to work with the private sector, and the funds will be allocated in the fund when the budget is approved, and there are no fears of any crisis,” al-Mashhadani added.

He noted “the possibility of changing the budget items for the years 2024 and 2025 according to economic data, which are indicative and subject to change, and half of the budget is supposed to be investment, but it is limited to a quarter of it.”

“Increased spending on projects may increase demand for dollars and lead to continued appreciation of the exchange rate,” al-Mashhadani concluded.  LINK
