World Economic Forum Annual Meeting January 21 - 24, 2020 Empty Trump meets the European Commission President in Davos, amid threats of customs duties

Trump meets the European Commission President in Davos, amid threats of customs duties


2 Hours ago


WASHINGTON (Reuters) -
Three sources said that US President Donald Trump is expected to meet European Commission President Ursula von der der Line in Davos, Switzerland next week, as tension between the two allies increases over threats of tariffs, and the Iranian file is also likely to be discussed.
A few days after Trump achieved huge gains by concluding a partial trade agreement with China and adopting a revised free trade agreement in North America, the US president will travel to the World Economic Forum, where he is expected to discuss escalating trade disputes with the European Commission president.
The White House and the European Commission did not respond to requests for comment.
Among the trade disputes between the two allies, Washington's concerns about France's plan to impose a three percent digital service tax that the US government believes will harm American tech giants such as Google and Amazon, and some other countries are moving in their path.


World Economic Forum Annual Meeting January 21 - 24, 2020 %D8%AA%D8%B1%D8%A7%D9%85%D8%A8





In response, the US trade representative threatened last month to impose 100 percent duties on French products such as champagne, handbags, cheese, and other goods and services.
A source, a European official, said, "There has been no progress" despite repeated talks between French Finance Minister Bruno Le Mer, US Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin and US trade negotiator Robert Lightiser.
The Iranian file will also likely be among the priorities of the agenda after Britain, France and Germany activated a mechanism to settle disputes in the 2015 nuclear agreement with Tehran after Iran decided to reduce its obligations under the agreement.
Trump withdrew from the agreement in 2018 and reimposed U.S. sanctions, saying he wanted tougher deals.
Tensions escalated in the region after the United States killed Qassem Soleimani, a prominent commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, in a strike with a drone.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has canceled plans to attend the economic forum.

World Economic Forum Annual Meeting January 21 - 24, 2020 Empty The "T20" meetings were launched in Saudi Arabia, amid calls to restructure international organizations

The "T20" meetings were launched in Saudi Arabia, amid calls to restructure international organizations




20/01/2020







World Economic Forum Annual Meeting January 21 - 24, 2020 Rc_157950395351_23









The activities of the "think tank" group (T20), affiliated to the Group of Twenty, were launched in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, yesterday, amid calls for the restructuring of international organizations, headed by the Security Council and the World Trade Organization.

Prince Turki Al-Faisal, head of the King Faisal Center for Islamic Studies and Research, called on countries of the world to put more pressure on the five permanent members of the Security Council to restructure this important international institution, as he put it.

Al-Faisal said on the sidelines of the opening conference of the "Communication of Thought" group (T20), "There is a need to restructure the Security Council to be more effective than it is today. The five permanent members have differences and differences on many issues of the world, and therefore the Security Council is bound by it, And with everything that these countries see against their principles. ”

Prince Turki gave examples of global issues and conflicts that have been open without solutions to each other for decades, despite the existence of Security Council resolutions on them, pointing to the conflict over Syria, the Arab-Israeli conflict, and the Kashmir issue. He continued: «For example, the Arab-Israeli conflict, there are Security Council resolutions laying out a map of a two-state solution and removing the Israeli occupation from Arab lands, but there were many veto decisions to prevent the implementation of these decisions, and this is an example of the interests of some of the five countries, so this needs The Council for Structuring to protect the implementation of its decisions.

In his response to the question of one of the attendees, whether he really believes that the five permanent members agree to any reform of the Security Council, and withdraw the influence that these countries enjoy, Prince Turki Al-Faisal replied: “The five countries will not agree to any restructuring of the Security Council, so the matter It has been on the table for some time, when a person is sick and wants to give him a bitter taste that might force him, I think the rest of the world should put pressure on the five countries to carry out the reform process, and I do not think it is useful to create other institutions that compete with the United Nations ».

He stressed that pluralism is the way to reach a prosperous world, pointing out that Saudi Arabia hosts the twentieth of precursors in promoting pluralism and addressing global challenges that cannot be addressed through unilateral action.

He noted that the Group of Twenty should define criteria that are widely accepted, and make recommendations to the leaders of the group on the extent of compliance with the various pledges.

The head of the King Faisal Center for Islamic Studies and Research touched on the Chinese role and the Beijing initiative on the Silk Road, and its impact on the world. He said: “What China is doing can help the international community, as it intends to assist countries, not only in the field of infrastructure, but in trade. Through the Silk Road, and this is a good thing, as we know there are many memoranda of understanding signed between Saudi Arabia and China to build a partnership in the framework of this initiative and we look forward to seeing more. ”

Turki Al-Faisal warned that thinking about the personal interests of some countries represents an impediment to multilateral cooperation, pointing out that "Vision 2030" is a wonderful example that explains how people can set their goals for themselves in their countries, develop, and become active members in the service of humanity.

To that, Dr. Fahad Al-Turki, head of the “Group of Thought 20”, affirmed that Saudi Arabia seeks to achieve a future of economic prosperity, sustainability and inclusion, and therefore focused on its goals on climate and the environment, by focusing on a circular economy with low carbon emissions to achieve climate goals, as well as on enabling Women and preparing young people for a more inclusive society, with pluralism, economic development and financing, by providing prosperity through international cooperation, economic development and financial sustainability.

Faisal Al-Ibrahim, Saudi Deputy Minister of Economy and Planning, said that the convening of the Twentieth Summit in Saudi Arabia represents a great opportunity for everyone to learn from the other, pointing out that effective cooperation begins between the member states of the Group of Twenty, and that the discussions conducted by the "Thinking Group" (T20) will have An effective role in establishing this cooperation.

Abdul Aziz Al-Rashid, Assistant Minister of Finance for International Financial Affairs, pointed out that the prosperity witnessed by the global economy during the past decades was a result of the great role played by the international multilateral organizations, especially during the eighties.

He added that international financial-related organizations are more successful than other organizations. He said: "What we see in the World Trade Organization today shows how cooperation is of course (...) the organization today is less influential than before, we believe that during the Saudi presidency there will be proposals for how to set a time frame for restructuring the World Trade Organization."

Dr. Fahd Al-Dossari, Deputy Governor of the Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency, touched on some examples of multilateral cooperation, including the issue of climate change, international trade, and the International Monetary Fund, which works to stabilize economies, as he described it.

He continued: «We live in an interactive world, and we cannot be in isolation from what is happening in the region and the world, and any event we interact with. Trade protectionism between the United States and China has cost the global economy about 700 billion dollars, and our region is affected by the global economy, and therefore we must understand what the global economy is And decisions issued in different regions.

Over the course of two days, the conference will discuss a set of fundamental issues that include climate, energy, migration, youth, innovation, technology, multilateralism, economic development, finance, food security, and access to water.

Mr. Hassan Karim Al Kaabi, First Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, stressed the importance of boycotting US administration officials present at the Davos forum and not meeting them.


Al-Kaabi said in a statement today, January 21, 2020: In line with the courageous decision of the House of Representatives to evacuate foreign forces from Iraq and a refusal to violate its sovereignty, we demand the Iraqi officials participating in the Davos meetings to boycott US administration officials, led by US President Donald Trump and his Foreign Minister Pompeo and never meet them. .


His Excellency pointed out that this position represents a clear political response that meets with the popular anger over the American violations of the sovereignty and security of Iraq and not taking this claim would represent an unacceptable disregard for the blood of the martyrs.


He continued: The House of Representatives is very keen on documenting, strengthening and developing Iraq’s relations with the countries participating in the Davos meeting and taking advantage of its economic, commercial and technological capabilities to rebuild Iraq, especially as the country looks to open up to various countries of the world, but the American role represents a departure from the international consensus to preserve the sovereignty, independence and stability of Iraq Which requires a firm response, indicating that the boycott of US officials represents the simplest political and diplomatic response to them.

Arab ministers are optimistic about the future of employment, women's empowerment, youth motivation, and technology exploitation




22/01/2020




World Economic Forum Annual Meeting January 21 - 24, 2020 Rc_157967590588_23



Arab ministers expressed great optimism about a promising future in employment, empowering women, motivating youth and exploiting technology, revealing current and future visions they plan to implement in order to support the project of development and economic transformation in their countries. According to a session at the Davos Forum, under the title "A strategic vision on the economies of the Middle East region", which brought together 3 ministers from Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Palestine and a representative from the private sector, the participating ministers see that the plans are going to exploit the opportunities of the new decade, especially those related to utilizing and harnessing the population capabilities In achieving the remarkable leaps in the adoption of technology and increasing the coverage of women and youth, while making changes to educational systems to keep pace with the labor market.

Engineer Abdullah Al-Sawahha, the Saudi Minister of Communications and Information Technology, said that the Middle East region, including the Arab system, is witnessing a disparity in the nature of the economies of its countries, but that what is combined by the lack of balance in several files in the field of employment, employment and rehabilitation, particularly youth, women and technology.

According to Al-Sawahah, Saudi Arabia has long sought to work to bridge those gaps, especially in light of the "Vision 2030" that aims to bridge the digital divide and compete with the world's developments in this regard, indicating that this applies to the system of the Gulf Cooperation Council countries. The matter - according to Al-Sawah - that strengthens forecasts that economic growth will return to a higher path during the coming period.

"In the Gulf, 70 percent of the population is in the youth category, and they are skilled in information technology and its skills, I have confidence in them," said Al-Sawahha, noting that he is the vice-president of the Fourth Industrial Revolution Center at the Davos Forum, and he must always recommend adopting policies that bridge the digital divide in countries. all.

Al-Sawah added that Saudi Arabia, which is the host of the Group of Twenty for the current year 2020, has sought to harness technology in all walks of life, and achieved wide successes, even in the medical and health care sector, as it reduced costs through relying on artificial intelligence, at a time that strengthens the vision project 2030 »is one of the priorities of youth, women and technology, to enable them in the country's future plans.

For her part, Rania Al-Mashat, the Egyptian Minister of International Cooperation, reported that the contrasting economies of the region and the conditions that Egypt has gone through during the past years left behind some of the problems that are currently being overcome by adopting the reform approach in monetary and financial policies to pass towards structural reforms, affirming the determination To successfully proceed with the transition.

Al-Mashat clarified that the focus is currently on how to unlock the capabilities of the private sector in Egypt to deal with unemployment and increase employment opportunities and remove associated obstacles, stressing that the world is changing at an accelerated pace, and Egypt must catch up with it, and therefore the focus is currently on stimulating the level Sectorial.

The Minister said: “We are trying to advance the sectoral level by focusing on some activities, specifically oil, gas and renewable energy, and we have a giant and promising project in Aswan linked to that.” Useful that the Egyptian tourism sector has a special feature and successes achieved.

Al-Mashat stated that among the aims of stimulating it in Egypt are the industrial and construction sector, especially the economic gains that can be reflected in the national economy in the country, noting the intentions of establishing new cities to keep pace with population growth.

In addition, Muhammad Ibrahim Ashtiyeh, Prime Minister of the Palestinian Authority, explained that the highest rate of unemployment in the region among university graduates is based in Palestine, amid great difficulties in the ability to absorb the new graduates.

Ashtiyeh added that work is currently underway to provide new initiatives based on motivating young people, through development, for example, where they are looking to grant lands leased with reduced fees to graduates and support them with easy and easy loans for agricultural and industrial projects, especially obtaining the Islamic Development Bank grant, where it was approved 250 million dollars for this.

He said we are promised an additional $ 50 million, amid aspirations to reach $ 500 million, in order to provide grants for newly graduated and ambitious Palestinian youth through entrepreneurship and innovation projects and small and medium enterprises.

Ashtiyeh said in his speech that Palestine currently has about 27,000 engineers, including 11,000 unemployed, which stimulates the adoption of a qualification and training program similar to the German program based on free professions policies, in the context of qualification and vocational and technical training at a high level, with a focus on aspects Electronics and programming.

For his part, Alan Bijani, CEO of the Emirati Majid Al Futtaim Group, limits the solution to reducing the level of unemployment in 3 factors, the first is to reduce the controls in which excess and stress on the private sector, the second is to focus on intraregional trade between countries, and the third is to facilitate the movement of individuals for investment and consumption in the region .
Bijani said that these factors would lead to an increase in employment opportunities, citing that the Middle East has only two of the largest 500 companies around the world, which disclose the state of enabling the private sector in the region.

For his part, the prime minister of the Palestinian Authority, Ashtiyeh, indicates that the education aspect is pivotal, and accordingly, they have deleted 120 majors from the decisions of Palestinian universities, while they have replaced about 150 new fields and specialties that coincide with the labor market, pointing out that the current period is witnessing the push towards creating an army of programmers. In a move to stimulate the exploitation of technology. The goat goes to the necessity of reinventing the priorities in education, as it is the basis of the change entrusted with many of the transformed changes, especially technical coverage in the curricula, where studies have proven that every 10 jobs must be one of them qualified in technology, at a time it must be recognized that The government is not the only one responsible for providing job opportunities. Rather, technical projects must be added as one of the upcoming transformations.

For his part, Bijani called for the need for governments to deal with the private sector as a partner, not a competitor, and to take advantage of public funds and exploit them through employing the proper employment that returns to employing and empowering women and supporting technology as governments still suffer from the benefit of investing in public sector funds.

He added that it is expected that the President of the Republic, Barham Salih, wants to take the American light around a certain candidate during his meeting with Trump, among the names proposed to be announced after his return to Iraq on Thursday.

And he stated that the political blocs in the building reject any name nominated by the American side, and the choice must be Iraqi.

Baghdad: «Middle East Online»

US President Donald Trump and his Iraqi counterpart, Barham Salih, agreed during a meeting held today (Wednesday) in Davos, the need to maintain an American military role in Iraq, as the White House stressed in a statement.

"The two presidents agreed on the importance of continuing the economic and security partnership between the United States and Iraq, including the fight against ISIS," the statement said. The statement said, "President Trump reaffirmed the commitment of the United States to a sovereign, stable and prosperous Iraq."

The Iraqi presidency had reported, in a statement, that Saleh and Trump discussed reducing the foreign forces in the country, after Washington rejected an Iraqi request earlier this month to withdraw its forces. The statement stated: "During the meeting, the presence and reduction of foreign forces in the country was examined, and the importance of respecting the demands of the Iraqi people in preserving national sovereignty and ensuring security and stability."

On January 5, the Iraqi parliament approved a non-binding resolution demanding that the government end the presence of foreign forces in the country following the US air strikes that killed the Iranian general Qassem Soleimani and the leader of an armed Iraqi faction, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis.

The killing of Soleimani, to which Tehran responded with ballistic missile attacks on two Iraqi military bases hosting American forces, shed light on the influence of foreign powers in Iraq, especially Iran and the United States.

Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi asked Washington to prepare to withdraw its forces in line with the decision of the Iraqi parliament, but the Trump administration rejected the request.

Washington later said it was studying the possibility of expanding the NATO mission in Iraq and a plan to "share the burden properly in the region."

[size=30]Trump announces from "Davos" the return of the "American Dream"[/size]

Contradictory visions collided in the forum on the global economy and climate change


January 22, 2020



World Economic Forum Annual Meeting January 21 - 24, 2020 1579621543070784800

US President Donald Trump in his speech at one of the main sessions at the World Economic Forum yesterday (AFP) Young Swedish activist Greta Thunberg takes the Davos platform to deliver a speech yesterday (AFB)








Davos: Naglaa Habriri

US President Donald Trump returned to the platform of the World Economic Forum armed with his economic victories, and with a message of hope she encouraged the "Davos" pioneers to forget his "protectionist" speech that irritated the world 3 years ago from the same platform.

The president, who was dubbed "a Davos Man" this year, did not hesitate to review his economic achievements in front of the audience, and to boast about the two trade agreements that he accomplished during the past week. The first is the North American Free Trade Agreement, formerly known as NAFTA, which was approved by the Senate last Thursday. The second is the signing of the first part of the trade agreement with China at the White House last week, which is supposed to lead to the abolition of customs duties imposed on Chinese imports after its completion, and ending the specter of the trade war between Washington and Beijing.



Return of the American Dream

The US President boasted about the "return of the American dream" and said: "Today, I am proud of the announcement that the United States is enjoying an unprecedented economic boom," as he expected at the beginning of his term. "I knew that if we unleashed the capabilities of our citizens, cut taxes and regulations, repaired bad trade agreements, and took full advantage of American energy, prosperity would return ... and that's what happened," he said. He concluded that «years of economic recession paved the way for a barrage of opportunities.

In what appeared to be a deliberate electoral speech, against the backdrop of a political crisis in Washington, the US President said that "every decision we make aims to improve the lives of the average American citizen ... We are working to build an American economy whose effects will be reflected on everyone." He stressed: "We have regained our strength ... the United States is flourishing again ... and the American dream is returning with more force than before." He also compared the economic conditions that the country reached under his presidency during the presidency of his predecessor, Barack Obama.

He also thanked foreign companies that invest in the United States. And he called for more foreign investments in his country, saying: "The time for skepticism has passed ... to every company looking for a place to succeed ... no place better than the United States."

Meanwhile, the president boasted that the United States was "approaching the stage of independence from others in the energy field," and said it was "the first producer of oil and natural gas." He cited figures indicating what he said were huge energy savings for American consumers, and he called on Europe to buy more American energy products. He considered that the expansion of oil, gas and coal production "was so successful that the United States no longer needed to import energy from hostile countries." He said, "Our allies no longer need to be at risk if they use America's vast supplies."

It seems that the participants in the fiftieth session of the forum did not care much about the issue of isolating Trump and the start of his trial, as although it is only the third time in the history of the United States that a US president has been exposed to such a process, the outcome of the trial in the Senate may be decided in advance. The president also did not raise the issue during his speech, but that did not prevent him from commenting on the "pseudo trial" in response to the question of a journalist accompanying his delegation. Asked why he was in Davos instead of Washington at this time, Trump said: "We are meeting with world leaders, the most important people in the world and we are back with tremendous commercial business," noting that the trial is "just a fake (measure)." "It is a chase chaos that has been going on for years and, frankly, it is shameful."



Chinese commitment to multilateralism

And if President Trump's speech left a different impression on the Davos pioneers compared to his previous speech, the Chinese speech came in line with Beijing's stances calling for pluralism and freedom of trade, which President Xi Jinpig founded in a historic speech in 2017.

He represented China in this forum General Deputy Prime Minister Han Jing, who addressed the audience a few days after his country announced 6.1 percent economic growth last year, warned Han of the challenges the global economy still faced, from protectionist policies to unilateral decisions. "In the absence of economic globalization, economic growth will suffer," he said.

Han called on the world to work to develop ways of international coordination and cooperation to ensure everyone benefits. He added, "The world needs to work together to achieve win-win results for all aspects, and to address some of the biggest challenges in the world, including poverty, climate change and environmental protection."

In veiled criticism of the United States, Han said that "international issues should not be dictated by two countries." He explained that China is ready to conclude a "high-quality free trade agreement with more countries", and the country supports the necessary reforms of the World Trade Organization, to enable it to play a greater role in openness and development.

On the other hand, Trump praised the relationship between Beijing and Washington, saying that "our relations with China are better than ever." Trump repeated his famous phrase in reference to "his good friend Shi Jinping," saying, "He represents China, and I am the United States. But otherwise, we love each other. ” Trump mentioned that the trade agreements that he concluded, especially with China, are a model for trade in the twenty-first century, expressing his aspiration to conclude more bilateral agreements with Britain, for example, after its exit from the European Union.



Environmental confrontation

Away from US-Chinese relations, the American president has devoted a good part of his speech to criticizing those he described as "a bad omen" in the field of the environment, describing the warnings of a climate crisis as "foolish". Trump, in contrast, promoted fossil fuels, deregulation and the improvement in the US economy, in a message that blatantly contrasted with that carried by environmental teenager Swedish campaigner Greta Thunberg.

"We must reject the vow of eternal pessimism and their predictions of the end of the world," Trump said, hours after Thonberg addressed the World Economic Forum in Davos, where she indicated that governments had done "nothing" to confront climate change.

Trump described those warning about global warming out of control and other environmental disasters as "heirs of yesterday's fools." And he touched upon what he considered previous expectations that proved to be wrong, including the occurrence of overpopulation in the world in the sixties of the last century, and "the end of oil" in the nineties. "We will not allow the radical socialists to destroy our economy," he said, in a clear signal to his opponents from the Democratic Party.

On the other hand, Trump, who did not mention the phrase climate change at all in his speech, affirmed that the United States will join the initiative to plant "a trillion trees", and stressed that he wants to preserve "the greatness of God’s creation and the natural beauty of our world." But he pointed out that innovation in technology, not restrictions on economic growth, is the way forward. He said, "Fear and doubt are not an approach to good thinking."

Thonberg, who attended Trump's speech, condemned yesterday morning what she described as "international inaction" in combating climate change, and considered that "nothing has been done" to combat it. She said: «We are all fighting for the environment and the climate. If you look at it from a broader perspective, nothing has been accomplished. It will take much more. It's just the beginning. ”

Thunberg admitted that her campaign, which started with strikes in schools and attracted widespread international attention, had not changed.

And she said, "There is a big difference between delivering the sound (only) and pushing that into something." She added, "I am not the one who can complain that his voice does not reach," stressing that "my voice always reaches, but knowledge and the voice of young people are not the focus of the conversation."

[size=40]Barham Salih: No country can dictate to Iraq its policies[/size]


January 22, 2020



World Economic Forum Annual Meeting January 21 - 24, 2020 E480A9AA-C0B0-4DB9-BA63-2CA18D83E5B4_w1023_r1_s






Barham Salih, President of the Republic of Iraq, stressed in Davos on Wednesday that no country can dictate to Iraq its policies, and at the same time eased the debate raised by the parliament about ending the presence of American forces in his country, considering that it is not "a sign of enmity."

During his speech to the fiftieth session of the World Economic Forum in the Davos resort of the Swiss Alps, Saleh said, "We seek good relations with everyone, and we have no interest in being drawn into conflicts that are not of our choice and our making."

He added, "No country should strive to dictate Iraq with whom we should have relationships and how," stressing at the same time that "it is not in our interest to choose to ally with anyone at the expense of others."

Tensions have escalated between Washington and Tehran recently on Iraqi soil, as the United States assassinated the influential Iranian general Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad, prompting a response from Iran, which bombed ballistic missiles an Iraqi military base hosting American soldiers.

The Iraqi President said that Iraq owes its gratitude to the international coalition led by the United States "especially for the military and economic support it provided, and is still providing this alliance, in the war against ISIS (...) and Iran also played a pivotal role in the war against ISIS."

"Our policies and our diplomatic and economic relations must be driven by our national interests, not by the interests of others, and even by the interests of our allies," he added.

In an angry reaction to the American strike, the Iraqi parliament held a session on the fifth of January, in which it voted on the government's mandate to end the presence of foreign forces in the country, including about 5,200 American soldiers.

In this context, Saleh considered that the parliament call "is not a sign of ingratitude or hostility, but rather a reaction to what many Iraqis see as violations of the sovereignty of their country."

He stressed that "this issue will be resolved through dialogue, which must be at the core of the sovereignty and stability of Iraq."

Saleh had met US President Donald Trump on the sidelines of the forum.

A source in the Iraqi President's office said that Trump assured Saleh that he "does not want to stay in Iraq despite the decision of the House of Representatives and the Iraqi government, but in a respectful manner and away from insult."

The same source pointed out that the two presidents discussed the issue of the assassination of Soleimani and the deputy head of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Authority, Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis, and that Saleh told Trump that the assassination was "a great change of the established rules."

At a time when Iraq is witnessing a wave of demanding protests for more than three months, the Iraqi president stressed that the demonstrators "want a democratic political system that reflects their collective identity and restores their dignity. They want free and fair elections."

Salih condemned the violence witnessed by the protests, saying that "the violence committed by outlaws is devastating and painful," stressing that "the perpetrators will be dealt with according to the law."

Mixed perceptions of dealing with the Middle East crises in Davos




23/01/2020





World Economic Forum Annual Meeting January 21 - 24, 2020 Rc_157976311815_23





A session on the geopolitical prospects of the Middle East and North Africa region witnessed yesterday morning, divergent views on ways to face the security, economic and political challenges facing the countries of the region.

And participated in the session held in Davos, within the framework of the World Economic Forum, Jordanian Prime Minister Omar Razzaz, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoوlu, Omani Minister of Foreign Affairs Yusef bin Alawi, and President of the Woodrow Wilson International Center, Jain Harmen.

The session, which was moderated by the Forum President, Burgah Branda, included a talk about the Turkish presence in Libya, the Jordanian political model, and an Omani criticism of the various actors dealing with the crises in the region.

Gawishoglu said, "The (Turkish) soldiers present in Libya are present for training purposes." "We do not have a large military presence there." He added that his country "is doing its best to achieve a permanent armistice in Libya and accelerate the political track, to reach a comprehensive transitional administration." In response to a question about Turkey's relationship with Russia, despite their conflicting interests at times, the Turkish minister said: «We are open to dialogue despite differing opinions. In Syria, we are at odds with Russia. But after the Aleppo incident, we decided to work together to end the suffering of the Syrian people, and we launched Astana and involved Iran, which is a key player. We are working with Russia despite our incompatibility with its position on the Syrian regime. ”

"As for Libya (...), Russia is a party in Libya, and we need to cooperate with all allies to end this conflict. Although we support Al-Sarraj, Russia supports Haftar's successor. As for Iran, Gawishoglu said: "We are against sanctions and we do not want Iraq to turn into a frontier."

In turn, Jordanian Prime Minister Omar Al-Razzaz reviewed the experience of his country, which he said "over the past decades has been an example and model for economic and political resilience despite the challenges imposed by the surrounding regional conditions." The Prime Minister stressed that Jordan worked to improve its institutional capacity, take measures that enabled it to deal with various challenges, enhance its economic and political resilience, and go in the right direction despite all the challenges.

Turning to the most important economic challenges facing Jordan, Al-Razzaz said: "We suffer from high unemployment, and there are young people who are looking for job opportunities and have needs that we are working to meet." The Prime Minister also affirmed the humanitarian dealings with the Syrian refugee crisis in Jordan, pointing out that "not one single hate crime took place against Syrian refugees and we are proud of that." He continued: "But at the same time we have great challenges, the first of which is that 20% of The population is refugees, and Jordan is surrounded by closed borders. ”

He pointed out that the total burdens and costs incurred by Jordan to host Syrian refugees amount to $ 2.4 billion annually, at a time when Jordan receives aid from countries and donors that cover only 42 per cent of the costs it incurs.

Al-Razzaz stressed that despite the challenges and difficulties, Jordan was able to advance several indicators in the volume of national exports, which increased by 9 percent, just as tourism indicators increased by 10 percent during 2019, and Jordan advanced 23 ranks in the Doing Business report. The Prime Minister indicated that 27 of the 100 startups in the Middle East region are Jordanian companies, according to the report issued by the World Economic Forum held in the Dead Sea region last year, despite the fact that Jordan constitutes only about 3 percent of the population of the region.

On the political crises in the region, Al-Razzaz said that "what happened at the global level did not serve the interests of peace and prosperity in the Middle East region and did not lead to a positive contribution to the region in the world." He stressed that we should draw lessons from what happened during the last period, and benefit Among them is to make the current decade a contract that enhances the possibilities of stability in the region.

The Prime Minister pointed out that the world ignored the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and thought of secondary wars at the expense of this conflict, warning that "by not responding to the aspirations of the Palestinian people, we are all losing a major battle and leaving the field and providing tools for extremist movements and groups to raise slogans demanding a role for them."

On the issue of the war on terrorism, the Prime Minister stressed that defeating ISIS does not mean eliminating terrorism, adding that "winning in one battle does not mean winning in the war on terrorism, and we must fully realize this so that there are no new copies of ( ISIS). ”

He added, we must also be cautious of regional and global interventions in the region, and realize that the waves of asylum can contribute to undermining the sovereignty of states and have significant negative repercussions, adding: «When the sovereignty of states and their borders are not respected, and when one side is supported at the expense of another, it emerges Problems and challenges ».

In this context, the Omani Minister of Foreign Affairs criticized dealing with the crises in the region. He said, "The feeling that we have is that the parties involved in the conflicts do not want to solve it, but rather manage it." Bin Alawi, who has been in office for 48 years, added that "even those who met in Berlin (referring to the Berlin Summit for Libya) met to protect their interests and not to find a solution." He asked, "Do we intend to continue at this pace?" What do we want to see in the Middle East in the next 50 years? ”

[size=36][rtl]Economic notes on President Barham Saleh's speech in Davos[/rtl][/size]


Saturday 08 February 2020





World Economic Forum Annual Meeting January 21 - 24, 2020 Alsabaah-30187






Dr.. Maytham Al-Ayibi


 
Davos is a forum for reforming the world economy mainly, and it is considered one of the most important annual economic events, given the important and thorny issues it addresses, and the important names that participate in it. The hot topics raised by the forum in its 2020 session, which were devoted to the issue of (sustainable development) are: (differences between East and West, such as the escalation of the effects of the strike that America directed to Iran, 
The trade dispute between Washington and Beijing, climate and environmental issues, and certainly there is a presence of the Swedish activist, Small Thunberg, who talks about climate and fossil fuels, fires and global warming).



The President of the Republic, Dr. Barham Saleh, in the forum, several issues, the most important of which are:
 

1 - Economic integration



Among the important issues he raised was his call for economic integration, from a vision that places Iraq in a vital geopolitical position, as he indicated: (My vision for Iraq, which is located in the heart of the Middle East, is to be a force for stability and a bridge for more economic integration in the region).



Certainly, economic integration lies at the heart of contemporary strategies pursued by countries that are linked to a specific geographical area, and these strategies have been taken by many countries such as Japan, Korea, China, and East Asian countries, and there are many studies that have proven positive results resulting from joint action, in the face of countries and blocs Great.



But what is lacking economic integration in the region?



Certainly, the most important thing that impedes economic integration in a region such as the Middle East, is the lack of a common political will among the countries that are in the vicinity of this integration, and I assume that Saleh talks about a region that brings together contradictory countries that extend from Israel to Iran and includes the Gulf states, which is a region as I claim that among the most complex regions in the world where such integration can occur, in terms of: 



a. A region that includes scarce resources such as oil and gas, which concern the whole world, and the core of a fierce global struggle of companies and major powers over this resource, such as the United States, Britain, China and Russia.



B. It is a hotbed of religious extremism, with all the contradictory and hateful narratives it holds throughout history.



C. In addition to its critical geographical location, the average continent of the world, whether by land, sea or air.
Dr.. In addition to the contradictory and inconsistent political and economic systems in the countries of this region, which are linked to opposing political and economic systems, as well.



The challenges of economic integration in the region are many, such as the lack of coordination and division of labor, including the specialization and benefit from the advantages of large-scale production, in addition to weak joint planning for development, in order to allow the optimal mobilization of resources and others.



Without digging into the difficulty of overcoming these challenges, Saleh did not mean diving into these details, but rather he was demanding that there be openness and cooperation between Iraq and its regional and international surroundings, which he expressed through an initial policy (building bridges and not slapping the doors), Likewise (the need for regional frameworks for security, economic, and commercial cooperation, which provides a path for political dialogue and conflict resolution between adversaries)
If we go back inside, we find Iraq located in the core of these contradictions, which makes it difficult to reach such integration, there are ethnic and national component intersections between those who monopolize power in Iraq and arrived at crucial moments to the point of civil war, which prevents the crystallization of an economic identity that can be integrated with Its Middle Eastern ambivalence is originally contradictory.



This reality has afflicted the country in isolation from equal integration with its surroundings, and has instead become an arena for political and security conflict, as well as a focus for the disposal of products of the region and the world, in exchange for a single advantage in the export of oil, without any real development role, industrial, agricultural or service.



On the level of trade exchange, we find most of the countries of the region consider Iraq a market for the disposal of their products, in exchange for Iraq being able to export little to the region, due to the biased policies pursued by the monopolist powers in Iraq, which devote their non-developmental role in the region, in exchange for promoting the growth of the economies of the countries Neighboring, and the development of exports and then achieve employment rates for its citizens.



 

2- The economic relationship with Iran 
President Saleh talked about the common issues between Iraq and Iran, and mentioned issues related to the existence of (ancient ties of geography, water resources, economics, and religion).



In his speech, Saleh focused on addressing the core of the failure of the Iraqi state administration after 2003 until the moment, which is based on the logic of dictates from abroad on the political, security and economic decision in Iraq, and the preference of international and regional interests over the national interest, when he indicated that (no country should seek dictation On Iraq, with whom we must have relations, and how our policies and diplomatic and economic relations must be driven by our national interests, not by the interests of others).



Iraq and Iran are located at the heart of an economically vital region, and they need to build a serious partnership based on achieving common interests. For example, Iraq imports electrical energy from Iran, including up to more than a thousand megawatts annually, (and 28 million cubic feet of gas per day to feed stations Electric), a sector in which Iraq faces a severe shortage, especially in the summer months, which has long been a cause of sparking protest waves in Iraq, as the country has been unable to address this crisis despite spending billions on it for a period of more than 16 years due to mismanagement and financial corruption .



Certainly, the Republic of Iran has a role in alleviating this crisis we have, but this also saves them billions of dollars and improves the balance of payments situation, just as it contributes to eradicating the blockade imposed by the United States. 



Iraq is at the heart of Tehran's foreign economic policy, with the aim of ridding it of its economic isolation and building a partnership to break its internal economic crisis, so it is seeking to expand trade exchange with Iraq, as it hopes to reach $ 20 billion during the next two years, which reached 2019 13 billion dollars.



The danger does not lie in the growing volume of trade exchange, but rather that this exchange turns into a deficit in the Iraqi trade balance, as this balance mostly comes from Iranian exports to Iraq, or in other words, they are Iraqi imports that drain foreign currencies. Among these 13 billion, for example, There are 8.5 to 9 billion of which are merchandise exports to Iraq, and the remainder are service exports (electricity, tourism, engineering services, technology ... etc).



It is clear that this balance is in Iran's interests completely. In exchange for the 8.5 billion goods exported from Iran, Iraq exported Iran only $ 500 million in value in 2019, in other words that Iran's exports to Iraq are 17 times higher than its Iraqi counterpart to its neighbor.



Iran is trying to seek to reach those 20 billion by focusing on liquefied gas exports, and promoting the export of electricity and the rest 
Services.



It should be noted that Iraq is exempt from US sanctions on the electricity and gas sectors exported from Iran, but this exemption is reviewed periodically by the American administration, which represents an American pressure card on the two countries, in order to obtain more concessions and settlements in files Multiple as the Iranian influence and the American military presence in Iraq, as well as the necessities of Iraq to accelerate the implementation of its fuel plans to reduce the demand for Iranian electricity and gas, including the progress in the negotiations of the fifth licensing rounds currently under way.

World Economic Forum: Enhancing the role of women contributes to increased economic growth




10/02/2020





World Economic Forum Annual Meeting January 21 - 24, 2020 Rc_158131918252_23





The World Economic Forum said that gender equality and the enhancement of the principle of leadership among women is one of the most prominent topics that are currently receiving increasing attention, especially that talk about gender equality and reducing the gap in participation in the work environment has become more noise and support.

According to what the forum mentioned on its website, there are several ways in which women can be supported to achieve what they aspire in the work environment, most notably focusing on success and talent and giving women the opportunity to highlight their capabilities in some non-traditional business sectors and not focus on traditional occupations such as communications, human resources and so on. Also, it is necessary to enhance the skills, support the female work environment with technology and the digital sector, and create renewable job skills so that there is a better opportunity for women to engage in the business environment. In addition to the necessity of increasing the awareness of companies by developing long-term plans to upgrade the role of women in the work environment and searching for the advantages that women enjoy in order to support their efforts to obtain a promotion similar to men.

By 2020, focus must be placed on active construction for the future, with the goal of supporting economic growth that is complete while more women are involved in the work environment. Also, future generations need to build a prosperous future characterized by gender equality and support the efforts of women to reach leadership positions.
