The key challenge facing Iraq is providing stability and internal security as the bedrock for the support and maintenance of all other measures. Addressing the problems of foreign debts and war reparations will only alleviate Iraq’s financial burdens and give it the opportunity to revive the economy and project it on a path of sustainable growth. To succeed, two key policy ingredients will have to be implemented; embracing a market economy, and diversifying the Iraqi economy and adopting measures for achieving self-sustained economic growth.
