Munaf AL Saigh, a prominent member of the Iraqi Center for Economic Reform said in a statement that current heated discussions on the subject of the Iraqi stock exchange are healthy and require action.
He added that every country's stock exchange is the central point for investment activity, and a determinning factor in economic flexibility and political and economic stability. From the technical and daily operational point of view, stability is an absence of violence and the freedom for capital to enter and leave the country.
AL Saigh continued to say that the government should at once and without delay begin the reenactment of foreign investment laws to permit foreign investment and to involve investors, businessmen, academics, experts from the Chamber of Commerce, and economic experts from within and outside the Ministry of Trade to participate in the setting of flexible laws that serve the country's economy and strengthen the position of local and foreign investors.(Source)AlSabah
