International Reserves in Iraq

Iraq - International Reserves

The economy grew 5.5% in the second quarter according to recent statistical institute data. The oil sector expanded solidly, underpinned by stronger crude production. Moreover, the non-oil sector surged, likely supported by loose fiscal policy in the form of a higher wage bill and subsidies, stronger electricity generation and supportive weather conditions. Turning to the third quarter, the oil sector likely lost steam; annual crude production growth ebbed notably from Q2, partly as Iraq reined in output in September following months of under-compliance with OPEC+ restrictions. However, the expansionary fiscal stance should have continued to benefit the non-oil sector. In other news, widespread protests have erupted in past weeks, highlighting continued social and economic fragility despite the recent improved macroeconomic performance.
