    The Iraq Education Cluster Strategy is a consultatively developed document that outlines the Cluster’s approach and operational plan for responding to the current emergency in Iraq. This strategy is intended to guide partners in their implementation of an effective, timely, and quality emergency response. It allows for better communication of the needs of crisis-affected children to various stakeholders. The Iraq Education Strategy is meant to serve as a basis for quick decision-making that all partners have contributed to, understand and are committed to; helping ensure predictability and mutual understanding during an emergency response. The strategy combines not only the HRP and the 3RPfor 2019 but takes into consideration the plans of other cluster partners that are not included in these two planning frameworks.

    They sold our shares and were supposed to deposit it in our accounts. Proxy shares are gone. Still hoping I can get back in. Given the last 15 years I'm guessing I still have time before anything real happens.

    Supervisory Action Manual/Risk management controls in traditional banking (Commercial On the Arabic side of the CBI site, this document is long, has very little English, but if you are tracking the banking side of things on this ride, the few words that are will make you smile. If you're on the currency side, the highly developed Banking system this document outlines will make you smile, something for everyone. Let's call them Keywords. Sounds like modern banking, with some trading guidance being passed down. With any luck, it will be on the English side of the CBI in a day or two. https://cbi.iq/news/view/1013 $

    Head of Iran’s Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization (ICHTO) Ali Asghar Mounesan said removing visa restrictions on travels between Iran and Iraq could serve the interests of both nations. Speaking at a meeting with Iraq’s Culture and Tourism Minister Abdul Amir al-Hamdani, Mounesan, also a vice-president, praised bilateral relations between Tehran and Baghdad as “brotherly and very cordial” and said the two countries enjoy good ties in all economic, social, and political areas. “Each year, millions of Iranian and Iraqi tourists visit the two countries and there is a readiness to promote relations in the field of tourism,” he noted. Referring to the abolition of the visa requirements for Iranians visiting Turkey and Oman, the official urged a similar move by Iraq and said an increase in the number of tourists from the two countries would be in the interests of both nations. “We should make efforts to speed up this process by lifting visa requirements,” said the vice president. Annually, millions of Muslim pilgrims, mainly from Iran, travel long routes to Iraq’s Karbala, where the holy shrine of Imam Hussein (AS), the third Shiite Imam, is located. Iran and Iraq enjoy cordial political, security and cultural ties but due to some internal and regional problems including Daesh (also known as ISIS or ISIL) terrorism in Iraq, they have not been able to increase their trade volume in the past years. Iran’s main exports to the neighboring country include agro products, foodstuff and fruits such as watermelon, tomato and cucumber, which account for 37% of the total exports.
