Us Ambassador to Iraq called Douglas Silliman, Wednesday, to invest the money in Iraq by providing jobs and businesses instead of investing in Tehran, Dubai, Beirut and London.

Silliman said during his speech at the Technical University in Basra, "we want to see Iraqi money in Tehran and Dubai and Beirut or London back into the country to create business and jobs here in Iraq."

He added that "Iraq faces many economic challenges because oil prices dropped to rebuild and secure the liberated areas would be costly,"
security forces "and praising the courage of the army and federal police and rapid reaction brigades and combat terrorism."

And Solomon, that "Iraq is undergoing a demographic change that fifty percent of Iraqis are now under the age of 19," explaining that "the private sector is progressing slowly behind the Government in creating jobs and Iraq ranked 165 between 190 countries in the World Bank study of States that are easy to do business."
