ABSTRACT
The article reports on reconstruction in Iraq. It states that the economic growth in Iraq is due to oil industry performance and low level of violence compared in 2007. It adds that the termination of all Provincial Reconstruction Teams (PRTs), police training transition from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to the Department of State, and taking over of the Office of Security Cooperation-Iraq (OSC-I) of the U.S. relations with the Government of Iraq (GoI) will affect the reconstruction.
