Iraq: Former central bank governor
The former governor of the Central Bank of Iraq Sinan Al-Shabibi has called on the Iraqi government to give “more power to the private sector to act as a unifying factor for the country and to create a strong and vibrant economy”. Al-Shabibi was speaking at a conference on governance at the University of Cambridge on 18-19 October, to mark ten years since the US-led invasion of Iraq. Also speaking at the conference were Sadiq Al-Rikabi, an adviser to Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki, Dawa Party MP Haider Al-Abadi and Kurdistan Regional Government foreign minister Falah Mustafa Bakir.
