Saleh (Al-Furat News) said that “the annual federal budget deficit is seen as a hypothetical or planned deficit and is controlled by the first two factors, estimates of the price of a barrel of oil in the general budget under a stable export capacity.”
“The more the estimate is conservative, the more there are manifestations of deficits on the said budget estimates,” he said.
“Second, the manifestations of hypothetical or estimated deficits increase sharply as spending ceilings increase,” Saleh added.
He continued, “Expansion in total spending in the budget on the one hand and the reservation in the price of a barrel of oil; for the purposes of calculating the revenues of the oil exported from {and what it generates modest revenues}.”
“On the other hand, they cause the default deficit fixed in the estimates of the annual general budget law to widen, and the hypothetical deficit can also turn into a real deficit when the average price of a barrel of oil actually exported is lower than the conservative price estimated in the budget law,” Saleh continued.
The Parliamentary Finance Committee expected the size of the fiscal budget for 2023.
The committee member, Maeen Al-Kazemi (Al-Furat News), said: The price of a barrel of oil in the budget is expected to be calculated from 65-70 dollars, and that its total volume will reach 140 trillion dinars, of which operating expenses are between 65-70% and the rest for the investment side, according to the Ministry of Finance.

Economy News-Baghdad

The financial adviser to the Prime Minister, Mazhar Mohammed Saleh, on Saturday set two directions for the essential features drawn up by the government curriculum, and while calling for reconsideration of activating the national strategy for the advancement of the private sector, he stressed that the government program addresses the unilateral economy and the dominance of semi-absolute oil.

Saleh told the Iraqi News Agency that “the essential features drawn up by the government curriculum approved by the House of Representatives in October 2022 are going in two directions in the scope of addressing the unilateral economy and the near-absolute dominance of oil over the conduct of economic life in Iraq.”

He added that “the first trend is in the field of public finance, which looks forward to the percentage of the contribution of oil revenues to total public revenues from 93% to 80% gradually, which requires the accuracy and speed of public finances reaching smuggled tax vessels, as well as the availability of policies supporting private activities that contribute to maximizing levels of per capita income and GDP in general

He pointed out that “the second trend is to spread the role of development funds financed by oil revenues effectively, which was indicated by the government program in order to provide easy and encouraging financing for development in activities that the private sector contributes to the advancement of, especially the industrial, service and service, digital and agricultural activity in a way that ensures economic diversification and gradually decommissions the national economy from

He continued: “I believe that it is necessary to reconsider activating the national strategy for the advancement of the private sector adopted years ago to ensure the high contribution of civil activity to GDP and the recovery of the productive private sector from its current state, whose contribution to annual national product does not exceed 35% to become 53% during the stages of economic development, specifically in the current decade, provided that this strategy ensures that unemployment and its rates are reduced from their current levels of two decimal places to become one decimal place at the acceptable natural break of unemployment in Iraq, which does not exceed 3% of the total economically active population or the total planned or desired labor force.”
