Al-Dulaimi said after the signing of the agreement that “this memorandum organized the work of the management of the Fund for Recovery, Reform, Reconstruction and Development, which comes within the obligations of the Iraqi government decisions of the Kuwait Conference in February 2018, in the management of support pledged by the international community to provide the Iraqi government for the purpose of reconstruction and development and economic reform.
He explained that “the fund, which was established on the basis of the Council of Ministers Resolution No. 53 of 2019, will be implemented through vital projects and infrastructure projects and provide basic services to citizens by the United Nations mission in cooperation with relevant authorities in the federal government and local governments.”
