Are there still hurdles to overcome and tasks they would like to accomplish prior to the RV?
Yes – but I do not know if these tasks will in fact hold up the RV or not.
My feelings are they will never have a perfect world and many of these tasks will be ongoing for many years to come anyhow even once the project to delete the zeros moves ahead again.
It is my feeling they are at the point where they can not move forward with their economic and financial plans since they will need a viable currency to do so.
So my feeling is Iraqi economy is now at a cross roads.
It will never be the “perfect” set up.
The IMF, the World Bank, the World Trade Organization along with a host of global consultants are working with Iraq to bring about the needed changes.
Which way will they now go?
There is only one way to go and why not?
Since they prepared Iraq for this economic explosion (or as Abadi has stated and I quote “economic openness”) they must now move to the next step and get fully the global/international stage.
What else does “economic openness” mean if not to go international?
