Joining the WTO is not the best thing for Iraq.
Baghdad, 15 August: The Iraqi minister of labour and social affairs, Mahmud al-Shaykh Radhi, said that he rejects the notion that Iraq joins the World Trade Organization (WTO).
“My ministry examined this issue considering its effects on the levels of labour and unemployment,” the minister told Aswat al-Iraq news agency on Sunday.
He noted that his ministry has conclusively found that this issue will negatively affect work efficiency in Iraq.
