Meanwhile escalated the relative importance of agriculture, forestry and fishing, since this sector register ratio of 73% of GDP as a result of the support the former regime was doing to those penal sanctions, this rate after application of the oil-for-food programme, so we conclude that the commodity sectors and their contribution to the GDP did not take the natural course of growth, but that contribution is related to conditions that Iraq was experiencing during the period (1973-2003) ".
