Shafaq News/ The mayor of al-Qaim border district with Syria in western Anbar province, Ahmad Jadian confirmed today, Friday, that a number of displaced merchants invested their money in Kurdistan Region instead of investing in the judiciary as a result of the security that the region enjoys.
Jidian told Shafaq News Agency, "There are many families who preferred to stay in the governorates of Kurdistan Region and the rest of Iraq's cities for many reasons, including providing job opportunities, and fear of mutual targeting between the international coalition forces and the factions near the (Iraqi - Syrian) borders."
He added, "There are those who have bought and settled housing homes in the Kurdistan Region, in addition to the great development enjoyed by the provinces of the region, which they have not witnessed in Al-Qaim, and this is one of the main reasons that prompted families to stay in Kurdistan."
Jadian indicated, "The majority of the families that have not returned to Al-Qaim so far are employees in different sectors of government departments, especially educational cadres, as there are 812 educational cadres (teachers and teachers) who are still in Kurdistan, especially the governorates of Erbil and Sulaymaniyah, and they have been appointed in the Education Representation in the region, and this has greatly affected the education sector in Al-Qaim.”
And he continued, "Their salaries are received and spent in Kurdistan, while if they were in Al-Qaim, it would have helped activate something of the educational and economic movement."
Gadian added, saying: That "the majority of capital owners and major merchants are from the sons of Al-Qaim, until this moment they have not returned to the judiciary, and as is rumored in Al-Qaim (cowardly capitals), they prefer to invest in the region instead of the Qaim, and the province's districts for fear of loss."
