●Relieving Iraq from its Reliance on Oil
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.
●Free Transportation Service to Hostelites
We believe the students visiting our university from far-fetched areas especially women from disadvantaged backgrounds or displaced families from the remote regions of Iraq, are under significant threat to excel in higher education and appear in the field of STEM, keeping that thing in mind, the University of Warith Al-Anbiyaa gave 100%, 50% and 10% scholarship to its students and special consideration was given to deserving top students from a financially poor background, were to encourage them to enter a STEM field, we assign 100% scholarships to top 10% of financially disadvantaged students in medicine department. However we know in the Holy city of Karbala, due to its commitment to entertaining massive crowds, the cost of living here can be highly expensive, for that reason, we at the university of Warith Al-Anbiyaa not only provide subsidized housing facilities to our students but also provide free transport services to and fro from university to hostel and back. As for our female students, we have made sure to give them lodging in the city center with complete security and with 24 hours guards presence, although the accommodation lies within tight security of the city provided by the Governorate of Karbala due to the sensitive points nearby, moreover, the area where the hostel is located have markets on walking distance and our students can find stuff for daily needs without any need for commuting. As the University of Warith Al-Anbiyaa provides free of cost transportation provided by the Directorate of Imam Hussain Holy Shrine (AS) (Parent organization of the university of Warith Al-Anbiyaa) which serves inside Karbala city to pick up students from their homes/hostel to the university and vice versa about three to five times a day (in total, both to and fro trip combined), we intend to complete our on-campus dormitories for our students so as to avoid commuting expenses and the toll on climate.
