Country Report
The article examines the political and economic conditions in Iraq. The first full-term government in the country was formed in May 2006, but the government of national unity is threatened, especially after coalition troops leave the country. Iraq's economy remains dependent on oil and the decline in oil exports in 2005 meant that growth was only 2.6 percent despite non-oil growth of over 20 percent.
