How Do We Benefit From The Decisions Of The G20 Summit?

Samir Al-Nusairi   The G20 Summit began in the Indian capital, New Delhi, and concluded its work over two days in the absence of the Russian President and the Chinese President, and with the participation of the leaders of 28 countries, including the original members of the summit, in addition to the leaders of the countries invited by India to attend the summit.

The leaders participating in the New Delhi summit focused on many plans and solutions aimed at confronting global crises, most notably climate change – which threatened to exacerbate poverty, famines and humanitarian crises, and negatively affected sustainable development plans in a large number of countries, especially developing ones.

The summit’s agenda also discussed many issues. Important ones include ways to promote green development, finance plans to confront the effects of climate change, the European Union Environment and Climate Action Programme, promote strong and sustainable economic growth, the progress that has occurred in efforts to implement the United Nations Sustainable Development Plan, technological transformation and digital infrastructure, and the efforts of international institutions to promote development and shape…

The economies of the G20 countries account for about 85 percent of the world’s gross domestic product, 75 percent of the volume of trade, and 60 percent of the world’s population.

Among the most prominent goals of the G20 are to strengthen and develop the global economy, in addition to reforming international financial institutions and improving the financial system, supporting global economic growth, developing mechanisms for job opportunities, and activating free trade initiatives.

What concerns us in Iraq is how our economy can benefit from the goals and decisions of the summit in particular, and the Iraqi economy is suffering from many problems that are exacerbated as it is affected by the crises and challenges of the global economy, which is also suffering from expectations of the continuation of the food, energy and climate crises, the problems of the Russian-Ukrainian war, and the currency conflict of some major economic countries. Russia and China are working with the US dollar to limit its dominance in financial transactions and exchanges between countries.

Since the successful economic reform in Iraq is not only achieved internally, but rather it is achieved to the extent that the competent economic bodies in Iraq are able to achieve by building diverse financial, commercial and economic relations with the countries of the world, especially the G20 countries, with a focus on bilateral relations with the seven major industrial countries and member countries with emerging economies.

At the summit, which currently constitutes an important economic pole in the areas of investment, sustainable development, and building important financial and banking relationships in a way that regulates control over the monetary and commercial market in Iraq, the Central Bank has actually begun concluding banking agreements with India and China, and unremitting efforts are being made to conclude agreements with European countries.

Therefore, we believe that the decisions issued by the G20 Summit must be taken into consideration and study how to deal with them through analysis and discussion in the Ministerial Council for the Economy, preparing an analytical and evaluation report to be submitted to the Council of Ministers with recommendations, and setting a time plan for action to achieve activation and strengthening of the existing bilateral economic agreements with some G20 countries and research. For new agreements with countries with which we do not have relations in all fields, because our adherence to the global economic system and its international standard standards is the basic solution to our complex and accumulated economic problems 227 views  09/11/2023
