Strengthening Public Finances and Financial Markets
The project “Strengthening Public Finances and Financial Markets” in Iraq supports key aspects of the White Paper that promotes important aspects of the ongoing reform projects. One of the main reform projects is to introduce intensive improvements to Iraq’s management of the public finance system. By proposing a set of comprehensive reforms and policies, the White Paper aims to rebalance and reposition the Iraqi economy on a track that allows the state to transform it into a diversified and dynamic economy.
