The interim Iraqi government is expected to announce in July the formation of a new board with direct control of all infrastructure projects in the country. The authority, to be known as the Supreme Board for Reconstruction, will comprise 13 members headed by the deputy Prime Minister Barham Saleh and Minister of State Kassim Daoud, who will act as secretary-general. Two other ministers will sit on the board, with the remaining members comprised of senior technocrats from relevant professions (see Cover Story).
