The report said, “Iraq is gradually emerging from the deep recession that it experienced in 2020 due to the Corona Virus (Covid-19) pandemic and the accompanying collapse in oil prices, as after a contraction of more than 11% in 2020, the Iraqi economy achieved a growth rate of 2.8% in 2021 with the easing of restrictions imposed by the Corona pandemic on movement, and this growth was supported by a strong expansion in non-oil production, especially in the services sector.
He added, “With the gradual cancellation of the “OPEC +” production cuts, oil GDP also began to grow in the second half of 2021, and the rise in oil revenues prompted a surplus in public financial balances and total external balances in Iraq in 2021. “.
The report quoted Saroj Kumar Jha, Regional Director of the Mashreq Department at the World Bank, as saying: “Iraq has a unique opportunity to undertake urgent and wide-ranging structural reforms through 3 means: taking advantage of the fiscal space resulting from its recent sudden oil revenues, and secondly, redirecting government spending towards programs that Improving growth is critical to economic diversification and job creation, and thirdly, addressing the country’s human capital crisis.”
The World Bank report confirms that “the current food security challenges in Iraq have intensified in the midst of the current rise in global commodity prices, while the level of local food production is below the level of demand caused by rapid population growth, and severe droughts and other climate change factors have led To exacerbate this situation, and while subsidies and direct transfers can help mitigate these negative impacts in the short term, achieving food security requires coordinated efforts to improve local food production and more efficient management of water resources.

The report says, “A further delay in forming the government and approving the 2022 budget may lead to limiting the use of the country’s sudden oil revenues, as the actual ceilings of the 2021 budget have been reached, and suspending the implementation of new investment projects, which may reduce economic growth.” The white paper “developed by the Iraqi government remains a model and a bold blueprint for a comprehensive economic reform program towards economic diversification.”
The report singles out a special chapter on the “Corona pandemic and the human capital crisis,” and says, “A child born in Iraq prior to the Corona pandemic may have a productivity of only 41% when he reaches the age of eighteen, than it would have been if he enjoyed a full education and full health, as The pandemic has affected the human capital in Iraq by negatively affecting the health of workers today and their level of economic well-being, as well as by reducing the potential productivity of the future generation in Iraq.
