As the global community continues to grapple with the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Atlantic Council is open for business. Our business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please read an update from our President and CEO.

Please join the Atlantic Council’s Iraq Initiative on Wednesday, January 6 from 9:00 am – 10:00 am ET for a discussion surrounding the upcoming paper, Gone with the Muhasasa – Iraq’s static budget process, and the loss of financial control. Authored by Ahmed Tabaqchali, chief investment officer at AFC Iraq Fund, the paper outlines the inefficiencies inherent in Iraq’s current budget process and the need for a revamped, dynamic and transparent budget mechanism. 

The discussion will feature the author of the paper alongside Alia Moubayed, managing director of fixed income strategy at Jeffries International, and Olin Wethington, the founder and chairman of Wethington International LLC, and moderated by David Mack, nonresident senior fellow at the Atlantic Council.

A Zoom link will be sent to those who register. The event is open to the press and on the record.
