●Economic Transformation; Improving Our Self-reliance
The University of Warith Al-Anbiyaa embraces the first international scientific conference hosted by the Al-Wareth Academy for Human Development and Strategic Studies.
An international scientific conference in cooperation with the Faculty of Administration and Economics at the University of Warith Al-Anbiyaa under the auspices of the General Secretariat of the Imam Hussainiya Shrine and in cooperation with the Al-Wareth Academy for Human Resources Development and Strategic Studies continues to complete special preparations. This first international scientific conference was held on 16/1/2021 under the title (Economic transformation from a rentier economy to a multi-resource economy) in the presence of elite professors of administration and economics at Iraqi universities and representatives of The Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, as well as representatives of the Iraqi Sunni Council, academic figures and researchers.
On this day, the activities of the conference began with a dialogue session in which some issues and forms related to the conference's axes were reviewed and were reviewed with the help of the number of experiences and case studies of other countries to benefit from by hosting a group of scientific and academic bodies in the economic, administrative and financial field to look into this matter.
There were other research sessions on the hubs of the conference, and the researchers that reached the conference were involved in the discussion, where these researchers address the problem for which the conference was held and how to find solutions to get rid of the problem of reliance on one oil resource in financing the country's general budget.
The process of diagnosing this problem has been reached via studies and research and these indicators have been adopted by the Warith Academy for more than two years, and this conference was held for bringing such strategies for the purpose of not relying on the country’s main budget on the on oil only in its revenues because oil has been affected by political crises and International situation and its negative impact on climate, and this impact is reflected on Iraq, and hence it poses a great danger to our country; its future and for generations to come. We hope that the efforts of this conference will be noticed by the Iraqi Government, the Ministry of Planning, and the Ministry of Finance for the purpose of relieving the budget of the Iraqi government from the oil economy and its removal from its crises.

●Discounted Tuition to help financially struggling families during COVID-19
University despite its hardships during COVID-19 days, allowed a 20% waiver to help students and their families going through economic difficulties placed by COVID-19, although the University during that era was on the verge of liquidity, as the university was in its early years when the world was struck by COVID-19, and university's bottom line at that time relies on tuition fees paid by students, which it uses to pay for its operation costs, here’s the letter, kindly find the image of that letter in Arabic on next page.
