The economic development of Iraq (English)

This book contains a report and recommendations for a review of Iraq's economic potentialities and a program to further develop the country's productive resources. The principal task of the Iraqi government will be to discover ways and means of spending the rapidly increasing revenues from its oil industry in a manner which will contribute most effectively to the long range development of the country. Accordingly, the Mission's report emphasizes the importance of effective methods for carrying forward Iraq's development. The first part of the report contains the major findings and recommendations of the mission assigned to this task - to which are attached three appendices listing specific recommendations, summarizing the suggestions for technical assistance, and outlining a statistical organization. The second part consists of a series of monographs dealing with particular subjects. The first is concerned with the basic factors and conditions in the economy of Iraq which the mission has considered in framing its recommendations. The others set forth in greater detail the mission's views on flood control, irrigation and drainage; agriculture and livestock; industry; transport; public health; education; and community planning and community facilities.
