    Continued U.S. Assistance to Better Meet the Needs of Minorities in IraqThe United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) have agreed to increase assistance to Iraqis, particularly religious and ethnic minorities, to enable them to return to their homes in areas liberated from ISIS. Following Vice President Pence’s remarks in October of last year, USAID renegotiated the terms of its agreement to contribute to the UNDP Funding Facility for Stabilization (FFS) so that $55 million of a $75 million payment will address the needs of vulnerable religious and ethnic minority communities in Ninewa Province, especially those who have been victims of atrocities by ISIS. The modified agreement ensures that the U.S. contribution will help the populations of liberated areas in Ninewa Province resume normal lives by restoring services such as water, electricity, sewage, health, and education. The $75 million contribution is the first tranche of the $150 million announced for the FFS by U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Douglas Silliman in July 2017; fulfillment of the rest of that pledge will depend on UNDP’s success in putting in place additional accountability, transparency, and due-diligence measures for the FFS. USAID is also proceeding with a process called a Broad Agency Announcement to solicit innovative ideas that support the resettlement of ethnic and religious minorities in their ancestral homes in Iraq. The results of that competition will be available by early Spring. (Source: UN) Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com. Post your commentary below.

    Wishing everyone a happy and successful new year. Hey old timers, does anyone remember the fantastic silver thread we had years ago? It has been seven years since the peak and it looks like the bottom is in. One of the most disregarded and hated investments at this time means only one direction left. I believe PMs and cryptos will be fun to play with this year and the next four or five years. Who's with me?

    This article was originally published by Niqash. Any opinions expressed are those of the author, and do not necessarily reflect the views of*Iraq Business News. By Ibrahim Saleh. An Increase In Internet Scams Entraps Naïve Baghdad Locals Over the past few months there has been an increase in stories about money-making scams on Facebook. Ill-informed Iraqis with get-rich-quick dreams are still falling for fraudsters’ lies. Tariq al-Halaq works at a barbershop in the central Baghdad neighbourhood of Mansour and he likes to talk to customers about his plans to get rich. The 37-year-old wants to make money and then leave the country to live a quiet life elsewhere. “It will only take a little time,” al-Halaq says. Ask him why and he says he has stumbled upon an ingenious new scheme to make money on Facebook. These online scams have always been around, says one Baghdad local, but recently they have been becoming more professional, targeted and therefore more widespread. On a post in a closed Facebook group, meant mainly for the sale of second-hand cars, al-Halaq read about a man called Ahmad al-Yasri. “Buy a parcel for IQD6 million or a bank note for IQD60,000,” al-Yasri writes on Facebook. A parcel is a bundle of American bank notes amounting to US$10,000 and a bank note refers to a US$100 note. But the amount that the man is selling the currency for does not equate to current exchange rates. Six million Iraqi dinars only add up to around US$5,000. And six thousand Iraqi dinars only equal around US$50. There is even a video accompanying the post which shows a surfeit of bank notes. Al-Yasri says he is trapped in another country with all the cash and cannot move it, which is why he is trading it for half of its value. Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com. Post your commentary below.

    By Mustafa Saadoun for Al Monitor. Any opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Iraq Business News.* Iraq is upping its efforts to restrict the public’s access to weapons, which will be a daunting task given the prevalence of weapons on the market and their wide exchange on social media. When the country’s top Shiite cleric, Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, demanded Dec. 15 that the government escalate operations to put all weapons under its control, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced a plan to do just that. At times in the past, sales were blatant and widespread; after the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003, weapons were sold on the streets in most Iraqi cities. That’s no longer the case — but now dealers have the internet. Facebook and other social media platforms have become hubs for the weapons trade. Although arms dealing is illegal in Iraq, dealers started using social media when the Islamic State invaded the country. When Mohamed Akram wanted to buy a weapon, he searched Facebook. After about an hour, he was able to purchase a Kalashnikov rifle from a group that otherwise focuses on car sales. Although the name of the group has nothing to do with weapons, it actually promotes their sale along with shoes, personal-care items and miscellanea including hair tonic. “Many people recommended that I search on Facebook and look for available weapons,” Akram, who lives in the al-Hurriya neighborhood north of Baghdad, told Al-Monitor. “I didn’t find any other way to buy weapons, many people buy from these groups.” Anyone can ask to join such groups, and once the group administrator approves a request, a new member can buy and sell weapons.

    Germany now UNMAS’ largest contributor for clearance of explosive hazards in IraqThe United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS) welcomes an additional contribution of € 17 million ($20.2 million) from the Government of Germany towards survey and clearance of explosive hazards in support of humanitarian and stabilization initiatives. The overall contribution, totalling € 44.2 million ($52.5 million) since 2016, makes the Government of Germany the most significant donor to UNMAS in Iraq. The recent contribution of € 10 million to enable Humanitarian efforts and additional € 7 million to enable Stabilization initiatives is timely as the Government of Iraq seeks to facilitate the return of over more than three million people to their homes in liberated areas. UNMAS will focus on risk education and clearance of public spaces to support the safe, dignified and voluntary return of Iraqis as well clear critical infrastructure providing electricity, water, health and education services. Activities will be focussed in Anbar, Salahadin, Kirkuk and Ninewa Governorates. The conflict with ISIL in Iraq has resulted in complex and extensive explosive hazard contamination and has displaced more than three million people since 2014. Explosive hazards present a significant risk for individuals returning to their communities, as well as those providing the initial response, especially in urban areas where explosive items are buried in rubble and debris from collapsed buildings. Humanitarian actors are challenged to safely provide assistance and people have been forced to abandon their homes due to explosive hazards. Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com. Post your commentary below.

    “As humanitarians, we have a collective responsibility to prevent and safely respond to sexual abuse and exploitation in Iraq,” said Jennifer Emond, a UNFPA specialist on the subject, during a training programme in Iraq. Risk of sexual exploitation and abuse escalate during times of crisis. Community protection systems are disrupted when populations are displaced, and breakdown in law enforcement enable perpetrators to abuse with impunity. Under conditions of deprivation and fear, people with power – even aid workers – may coerce others into sexual relationships in exchange for food, medicine or safety. The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and its partners are working to end these abuses through a range of actions known as “protection from sexual exploitation and abuse” (PSEA). UNFPA and the World Food Programme (WFP) are together co-chairing the Iraq Network to Protect from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse. For the last two months, UNFPA and its PSEA network partners have been training humanitarian workers across Iraq on the principles of PSEA, including how to prevent abuses and respond if they occur. “So far, we have trained up to 400 humanitarian workers in Sulaymaniyah, Dohuk, Baghdad, Basra, Soran and Erbil,” Ms. Emond said. Those aid workers will themselves act as trainers, reaching out to hundreds more with critical information that can improve protections for vulnerable populations. Improving reporting and protections The trainings help humanitarian staff understand how sexual exploitation and abuse can occur in different scenarios, as well as the consequences for survivors, the community and all humanitarian actors. Participants are taught to understand the power imbalance between aid actors and vulnerable populations, and to realize what behaviour is not acceptable. Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com.

    This article was originally published by Niqash. Any opinions expressed are those of the author, and do not necessarily reflect the views of*Iraq Business News. By Narim Rostam. For lawyers working on sensitive cases, especially corruption cases, in Iraqi Kurdistan, death and other threats are just part of the job. On New Year’s Eve in the district of Bakhtiari, in Iraqi Kurdistan, there was gunfire at local lawyer Omar Tawfik’s house. But this hail of bullets was not celebratory. Tawfik believes he was targeted by unknown assailants and blames those who previously threatened him. Tawfik received these threats because he was involved in a complex court case, that started in 2012 but has yet to be resolved, around corruption involving land sales and senior politicians and administrators. The case saw the arrest of the then-mayor of Sulaymaniyah, Zana Hama Salih, who died in mysterious circumstances while in custody. Tawfik says he knew he would be threatened as a result of this case – even though he hasn’t been able to make much difference, he says. The fact that those working in the legal profession are threatened is nothing new in Iraqi Kurdistan. However recently the frequency of the threats and attacks seems to have increased. Last year, many local lawyers said at one time or another, that they were threatened. But not many of them want to chase those who harass them nor do they like disclosing the details of the threats. This is a worldwide phenomenon – lawyers are often threatened but they don’t often report the threats to the police. In fact, details released by the Kurdistan Bar Association say that out of their 9,000 or so members, only 7 were threatened last year. Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com. Post your commentary below.

    Spacetuna, you sound like a very wise person and investor, and the advise stated above about the oil companies is a very good move. I do hope I didn't come across disrespectful in my last comment, if so I apologize. However, I am sure you remember when there was a time in history when after the war it was not a good idea to invest in Europe, or how foolish it would be to invest in a communistic state like China. We both know well enough that the bad news coming out of Iraq will soon turn to good business news when the time is right. We both also know that it is during the bad news phase that Wall Street is making their investments on the ground while it is cheap. By no means am I risking my life by landing and entering the green zone where all the business is done in Iraq. If the green zone is not safe that means the government of Iraq has collapse and the US military has failed after all money and lives lost. I have faith in the might of this country as you do. You know very well that investing in anything is risky, but fortune follows the bold and wise. You out of all, I would have loved to be in business with.

Specially when you have contacts telling you otherwise. I wish you all the success on the US Exchange, but there are other exchanges to invest in around the world. The focus here is the ISX. Also, remaining at home will not guaranty you a long and safe life - when its your time to go believe me, there will be nothing that can safe you.

    I think the real investment that everyone on this board has passed up is the oil companies operating out of Iraq and Kurdistan that can be invested in on the good ole' US STOCK EXCHANGE. The money in Iraq will be made in the oil. There never was a reason to send money to Iraq only to have it stolen. There is no need to travel to Iraq to be shot at. I can invest from my E-trade account and sit at home. I'm already up over 40k on my investment and I doubt many on this board can say the same. http://www.gulfkeystone.com/media/95087/GKP_SmartPDF_AR15-spreads-1-.pdf Page 38.

So when one of the largest producers in Iraqi Kurdistan, Genel Energy Plc, comes out swinging with production costs as low as $1 per barrel, it inspires a new confidence that may or may not be sustainable given the regional security threats and the difficulties producers are having getting paid for their oil. Still, it’s an impressive number that renders Kurdistan one of the cheapest oil venues on the planet How To Invest With A Rothschild in Iraqi Oil http://www.forbes.com/sites/christopherhelman/2014/07/08/how-to-invest-with-a-rothschild-in-iraqi-oil/#509d80f98df7 Another oldie but goodie... http://www.hannamandpartners.com/uploads/2015/10/Kurdistan-2.pdf Kurdistan is one of few places left in the world where oil companies can acquire material exploration positions with large reserve potential on competitive commercial terms.

This undervaluation presents several unique opportunities to acquire world class producing assets for a fraction of their value.

    The physical caliphate of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria is in pieces and operations against ISIS continue in the Euphrates River valley, but the ISIS “brand” remains to be defeated, Pentagon officials said on Thursday. Remnants of the terror group continue to operate in Iraq, but improved Iraqi security forces are able to manage that threat, chief Pentagon spokesperson Dana W. White and Marine Corps Lt. Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr. told reporters during the weekly Pentagon briefing. McKenzie is the director of the Joint Staff. And, McKenzie denied Russian claims that the United States was responsible for drone attacks on Russian airfields in Syria. “I can tell you unequivocally that the United States was not involved in any way with the drone attack on the Russian base at any time,” he said. ISIS ‘Broken, Fractured’ “ has been broken and fractured, but the work still continues,” White said. “We are going to continue our operations because we ultimately have to ensure we have conditions on the ground that ISIS can never re-emerge.” McKenzie said trends against the remnants of the physical caliphate in the Middle Euphrates River valley are good. “We seem to be having success there with our allies and partners, but … I wouldn’t put a timeline on that,” he said. “There is also an enduring global element to it — the enfranchisement of ISIS. Even though they failed as a caliphate, there are global manifestations of their brand that we see pop-up. I think there is plenty for the global coalition to do in the year ahead, aside from the physical end of the caliphate in the Euphrates River valley. Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com.

    Gas Plus Khalakan (GPK), the sole contractor of the Khalakan PSC in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, has issued an end-2017 operations update regarding the Shewashan field. Oil Sales: Total payments received by GPK for oil sales now amount to $9.0 million representing*190,115 barrels of GPK entitlement oil sold through to the end of September 2017. Sales from *October *to December *has *been *invoiced *through *the *traditional *operating procedures in place with the KRG Ministry of Natural Resources. Oil Production: In total, cumulative field production to date exceeds 1,300,000 barrels of oil. Current total field production is 1,000 barrels per day. Total oil production for the 3rd quarter*2017 was 81,207 barrels and 422,027 barrels have been produced in 2017, up to and including 1 December 2017. These amounts are significantly below that required to meet forecast annual production targets and break-even economics. There are two main reasons for this lower production. Firstly, water production rates in the Qamchuga formation have limited oil production rates. The Qamchuqa formation is heavily fractured and many of these fractures are connected to the aquifer. Secondly, production rates from the Shiranish and Kometan reservoirs have been limited, due to these formations having a tight matrix, with their fracture network being not as developed and extensive as in the Qamchuqa reservoir. GPK continues to recomplete the four Shewashan wells to limit water production in the Qamchuga and stimulate the Kometan and Shiranish reservoirs to facilitate greater production rates. This activity is summarized below: Shewashan #1: Current production rate: 350 bopd and

    By John Lee. Russia’s Gazprom Neft has reportedly revised down its output plateau for the Badra oil field. Denis Sugaipov, head of Gazprom Neft’s department of large projects, told Reuters that the consortium running the project has proposed setting the output plateau for the next few years at its current level of around 85,000 bpd, as the field is more geologically complex than previously thought. This is half the level initially planned as a plateau to be reached in 2017. The field is being developed by Gazprom (30%), KOGAS (22.5%), Petronas (15%), TPAO (7.5%), Iraqi state-owned Oil Exploration Company (25%). According to Reuters, $4.0 billion has been invested in the plant so far, including $1 billion for a gas processing plant; another $2.5 billion is planned to be invested by 2030.

However, it seems that things have continued to move slower than ever. The idea and plan that I have is to get a few like minds together and create a company that can directly invest in the ISX. I understand how challenging that may sounds with all that has taken place in the past. But we all know that things are going to happen in Iraq in the coming future. Wall Street is moving in and the world is moving in quietly while we are just waiting and hoping. I would like to start small, with the right people who are not afraid to take a chance. What I am proposing is to set up our own shop in Baghdad, seriously. Where we hold an office and contacts on ISX location and get the real news ourselves for ourselves. I have been part of this forum and investment from the beginning, and we all know that it will happen. We simply got something wrong that we were never privy to and that was the timing. Iraq only has one direction to go, and we are starting to see it move in the right direction this year. I for one don't want to be watching all the changes and opportunities when we can be apart of it. Look, there is going to be a time where any business pertaining to Baghdad will be a success. In any case, there is good money to make there right now directly. I am talking about starting something real that only invest in the ISX with board members. So for anyone that is REALLY interested, please contact me at jaypie13@gmail.com for more details about the legal matters pertaining to it. Maybe we can talk as well. Please don't contact me unless your serious.
