The Department of Research and Statistics was always the one to publish statistical information about various Iraqi economic activities. This put key information into the hands of researchers and economists for analysis and economic studies, to say nothing of the importance of formulating national monetary and fiscal policy, with benefit of the quarterly bulletins and the annual reports which the Central Bank of Iraq issued. However, the negative conditions that the country experienced and the harsh constraints on publishing any information that were imposed by the previous regime caused the Central Bank to halt publishing any information, thereby reducing its statistical and research activitie At present, with the end of those circumstances and with the desire of the Central Bank to have full transparency in publication, the environment has become conducive to the Central Bank’s conducting research and publishing relevant information in a timely manner.On this occasion, the Department of Research and Statistics is pleased to publish this Special Issue of the Statistical Bulletin of the Central Bank of Iraq, to provide information available for the period of 1991 through June 2003. This is the starting point for regular publication of the Quarterly Bulletin and the Annual Report of the economy of the new Iraq.
