Expected Outcomes

The first meeting of the Working Group, held in Amman, Jordan, on 17-18 February 2010, was attended by a top-level Iraqi delegation representing 12 government ministries or agencies. The meeting allowed Government of Iraq officials to benefit from detailed briefings by Working Group technical experts on two extra-budgetary sources of funding for infrastructure projects that are relatively well-adapted to the Iraqi situation public-private partnerships and development bank loans. Members approved an action plan calling for Iraqi ministries to submit priority infrastructure project proposals to MENA-OECD for study at the second meeting of the Working Group. MENA-OECD will identify a shortlist based on criteria specified in the action plan, and will seek initial expert feedback as well as any necessary supplemental information to ensure that substantial progress can be made in Paris. At the meeting, experts will provide advice on how to develop the projects into viable financing applications. Major corporate players in the infrastructure field will be invited to present case studies of successful projects, and the issue of integrity in public procurement will also be addressed.
