Iraq Business News:  With just four weeks left to the parliamentary elections, and all the uncertainty and risk that that brings, it is interesting to note that money is still flowing into the country and oil is still flowing out.

On the production and export side, the latest figures look very positive, and Lukoil has just started production at the giant West Qurna 2 oilfield.
