    By John Lee. Iraq has agreed to buy 90,000 metric tons of rice from the United States. US Congressman Ralph Abraham, M.D., R-Alto, a member of the House Agriculture Committee, said in a statement: “Iraq is buying three times more rice than we requested in our letter, so I’m thrilled that this resulted in such a successful sale.* A purchase of this great amount will have an immediate and strong impact on the American rice market, and this is certainly a testament to American rice producers, who grow the best rice in the world.” Dr. Abraham said he has led several letters to Iraq over the last few years advocating for US rice, adding that the most recent success was in August when Iraq purchased 15,000 metric tons from the United States.

    By Adnan Abu Zeed for Al Monitor. Any opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Iraq Business News. British Ambassador Jonathan Wilks warned at a press conference last month that, at its current rate of growth,*Iraq’s population would increase*by a million people per year. Iraq’s Central Statistical Organization (CSO) announced soon after, on Oct. 1, that the country’s population had reached about 38 million in 2018, and that Baghdad’s population had reached more than 8 million. While Iraq has not conducted any comprehensive census since 1997, these figures, combined with the rising unemployment rate, indicate an imbalance between the growing population and the availability of services. Najeh al-Obeidi, an economics*researcher at the University of Baghdad, is worried that the state will not be able to respond to population growth or provide decent living conditions for Iraqis.*“This raises concerns about the future,” he said.*“Baghdad alone has a population equal to that of the entire country five decades ago.” Click here to read the full story.
