The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Govern­ment Prime Min­is­ter, Nechir­van Barzani and Deputy Prime Min­is­ter, Qubad Tal­a­bani, last Mon­day held a meet­ing with the gov­er­nors of Er­bil, Su­lay­mani and Duhok to dis­cuss ways to ad­dress the cur­rent fi­nan­cial cri­sis in the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion.

In the meet­ing, which was also at­tended by the KRG Min­is­ter of In­te­rior and a num­ber of of­fi­cials and ad­vis­ers, the causes and im­pact of the cur­rent cri­sis on the eco­nomic and so­cial con­di­tions in Kur­dis­tan Re­gion were dis­cussed.

The Coun­cil of Min­is­ters High Com­mit­tee of Fi­nance dis­cussed pos­si­ble ap­proaches, sup­ported by fig­ures and data, on how to al­le­vi­ate the dif­fi­cul­ties caused by the cri­sis, and en­sur­ing the con­tin­u­a­tion of the pro­vi­sion of salaries in the gov­er­norates.

The meet­ing also dis­cussed the pos­si­bil­ity of tak­ing eco­nomic mea­sures that would have an im­pact on the mar­ket prices of daily ne­ces­si­ties, such as food, house rent and med­i­cal con­sul­ta­tions, that would help to ease the fi­nan­cial bur­den on the cit­i­zens. For this pur­pose, it was de­cided to hold an­other meet­ing next week in the pres­ence of eco­nomic ob­servers, rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Cham­bers of Com­merce and In­dus­try and rel­e­vant as­so­ci­a­tions.
