The Cabinet held its weekly regular meeting in Baghdad on Tuesday under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Adil Abd Al-Mahdi.

The Cabinet received a detailed briefing from the Ministers of Agriculture and Health on the death of carp in a number of fish farms on the Euphrates river, and on containment and recovery measures as well as government support for affected farmers.

The Cabinet discussed the draft 2019 Federal Budget, and agreed to form a dedicated budget team to liaise and work closely with parliament and its relevant financial and oversight committees.

The Cabinet discussed air transport, and reviewed measures to improve connectivity between Iraqi airports and a number of international airport hubs to support economic development, tourism and the expansion of trade between Iraq and our global and regional commercial partners.

The Cabinet voted to increase the salaries of members of the Popular Mobilisation Force to bring them into line with members of Iraq’s other security and military forces.
