There is a lot of training going on. We saw a few weeks ago, bank training, and next week (Feb 25 -March 1st) we have members of Maliki's staff getting training on WTO accession. I tell ya IMO, we will see a basket passing all laws needed in short order after the budget. And you don't train people to do a task 6 months or a year from now. People are being trained now so they can impliment the free market now. Just sit and let it come to us
Let's break down this article (article posted below)...
There was a meeting..with Secretary-General of the Council of Ministers (Maliki's group), Governor of the Central Bank (Turki), Chairman of the General Authority agency llkmark (sounds like economic, or tax offical), number of representatives of the relevant authorities(anyone else they felt should attend).
to "lift constraints on the banking sector, and activate the alkmarki system for economic development."
This appears to mean to move to the correct "exchange regime" as required by the IMF (lifts constraint on banking sector - Article 8, etc.) and activate the tax system to invite economic developement.
What is very important here, is it appears that Maliki is going along with it. At least at these meetings. Really great stuff and substantial information.
