    What a flip-flop from just a couple of days ago where the CBI chairman was saying publicly that Warka bank was in trouble. Maybe they worked out a back-room deal with the MOF to fund the bank to get it back on its feet.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I think that we are going to see Warka not returning to the ISX but in Kurdistan market where the money is at this time

    I guess the next step will be to see if the Ministry of Finance will put its money where it's mouth is and fund the re-institution of Warka.

    If this source is actually correct, it's very interesting (and positive IMO) that the CBI is aware of what repercussions the liquidity of Warka may have had on the international stage, and are seeking to reenforce the perception that Iraq is a place where investors can safely do business.

    Are they saying al-Asadi is a member of the Warka Board of Directors ? - if so, fantastic .. just what Warka needs, Gov. pull and lots of cash.

    BAGHDAD – Businessman Issam al-Assadi reclines in a chair in his spacious villa with sweeping views of the Tigris River, as a servant pads over to serve tea.

    Iraq is finally open for business, says al-Assadi, a powerful entrepreneur whose network of construction and other companies has won millions of dollars in Iraqi government contracts. "International companies are starting to come to Iraq," he says.
