Inflation in Iraq

Iraq Inflation | Economic News & Forecasts

Iraq - Inflation

Economic conditions likely improved somewhat in Q2 and Q3, spurred by a recovery in the energy sector as oil prices surged and OPEC+ progressively loosened production cuts. Indeed, oil output was up markedly in annual terms in Q3, with production in September the highest in over a year. Further boosts to the energy sector have come in recent months from a host of deals signed with foreign firms to increase investment. Most recently, the country reached a deal with Norway’s Scatec over the construction of two solar plants. Less positively, electricity shortages amid a summer heatwave likely weighed on the non-energy sector in Q3. In politics, cleric al-Sadr’s political movement increased its seat haul in October’s parliamentary elections, at the expense of Iran-backed parties, whose decision to contest the results could inflame tensions and delay government formation.
