Parliamentary Finance of the Government - Do not risk the future of Iraq .. Look for new revenuesBaghdad – Where News

member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, Thamer Theban, expressed, on Tuesday, his surprise at the issuance of a book by the Ministry of Finance calling for the enactment of a law to borrow to pay the deficit in the salaries of employees, warning against mortgaging the future of Iraq by relying on borrowing.
“There is confusion on the part of the Ministry of Finance, as well as a failure to reform the economy,” Theban said in a statement to Ayna News, noting that “the government and the Ministry of Finance pledged earlier to submit the economic reform paper and we did not see any signs of reform.”
Theban called for “staying away from borrowing and controlling government revenues from oil, border crossings, taxes, investments and other revenues.”
Theban, a deputy for the Al-Fateh Alliance, warned the Ministry of Finance against “risking mortgaging Iraq’s future by relying on loans,” stressing the need to “search for new revenues through which you can secure employee salaries.”
