    Cabinet Spokesman Hassan Nadhim announced today, Tuesday, that the draft federal budget law for the fiscal year 2021 will be sent to the House of Representatives, noting the start of the treatment of the previous economic legacy and the implementation of the white paper in the budget of next year.

    "The goal of the government in the white paper is economic reform," Nadhim said in a press conference attended by the reporter of the Iraqi News Agency (INA).

    He added, "The Cabinet agreed to authorize the General Director of the General Company for Ports of Iraq the authority to sign contracts with Daewoo to establish the Faw Port project."

    And Nadhim added, "Fighting corruption is an idea with a central structure in the government, and the Anti-Corruption Committee has revealed many facts and took them to integrity."

    "The government is carrying out a historic responsibility, which is to start reform, and the salaries of low-income employees did not affect much in the next year's budget," he said.

    Nadhim also stated that "Iraq will witness the entry of the Corona vaccine in the first quarter of next year," and also stated that "the cabinet voted to authorize the Director of the Civil Aviation Authority to sign a memorandum of understanding to rehabilitate Mosul Airport."
