More detail about Iraq
Iraq survived all odds
The first thing that rings a bell in our mind when we hear about ?Iraq? is ?Saddam Hussein?, who the world believes has led Iraq into an age of darkness with his dictatorship. Iraq has been through chemical warfare, terrorism and mishaps in the last few decades. Even after Saddam?s reign, Iraq has been devastated by the state of civil war. Still, Iraq survived all. It is believed that ?The garden of Eden? was in Iraq, Iraq was where the earliest civilization thrived as Mesopotamia.
Iraq is a country in the Middle East. The location of Iraq is sure to give the idea that Iraq is an oil rich nation, due to its enormous oil reserves. Paradoxically, the Iraqi Government fails to explain why the macroeconomic gains cannot bring about any improvement in the lives of the common people. Unfortunately as it is, even if it is an oil rich nation, Iraq has a lot of people who are unemployed.
Iraq is still recovering its state after the recent war which just ended. But before the war ended it lead the people of Iraq to be in utter turmoil and distress. Iraqis hope that Babylon will regain its life soon.
Most of Iraq?s economy is primarily driven by the huge oil reserves and other petrochemical industries. Yet, Iraq got into a lot of debt when it got into a war with its neighboring country ? Iran. The Iraqi Government has, however, dealt with the situation well enough, and by the year of 2006, inflation had a consistent fall in Iraqi market. Iraq has the natural boon of being self-sufficient when it comes to energy production; once again the cause of envy is ?oil reserves?. Apart from oil, the economy of Iraq is also supported by agriculture, mining, forestry and fishing.
