Amen! Especially the fat printed part.Saudi's much better economically than "dubai" (not UAE). It has absolutely enormous local industries in all fields.
Dubai has a dozen shopping malls and some hotels... and lots of real estate condos built for foreign money launderers. its not a real economy!
of course for iraq, a hybrid of Turkey and Saudi economic development is ok.
We should rely on local labour rather than imported like turkey
we should use all our oil money for development and not for "current account" budget by the bloated bureaucracy.
Put up barriers to protect local iraqi producers from imports for 10 years to allow them to catch up to world standards
Change Iraq's governmetn to a standardisation body to maintain standards in industry, commerce, construction, manufacturing, farming etc...
Focus on developing iraq's "strength industries" as opposed to trying to be a "jack of all trades" or "self sufficient in everything even if we can't do it well or compete"
not rocket science really. But not dubai either, which is just so so wrong.
