The government of Iraq is committed to reform the pension law before it goes into effect. Good progress has been made in setting up a payments system. The Central Bank of Iraq (CBI) and ministry of finance are coordinating their strategy toward restructuring the state-owned banks. The government expects to initiate negotiations on resolving non-Paris Club official claims very soon. Iraq’s medium-term economic prospects look reasonably favorable, but are subject to considerable risk. The new government has taken important and decisive measures to bring the program back on track.
