Which is compatible with the capabilities of the average investor, but extends to include a wider range of information that needs extensive knowledge and know-how by investors, stakeholders and analysts in order to make appropriate financial decisions, and this new approach is what is known as integrated reports, and the case study was conducted on Wasit textile and weaving factory. Whose plants are located in Wasit Governorate, by relying on the financial statements for the year 2018-2019 The most important results indicated that the main goal of integrated reports is to identify how economic units add value and how to maintain it over time, by providing financial and non-financial information to all stakeholders, provided that this information is able to meet their needs and help them in making decisions. Appropriate and correct, as well as the creation of the value sought by economic units cannot be achieved through financial information only, but must take into account the external environmental influences and issues that include economic, environmental and social aspects and how to integrate them into the business model of the unit.

Creativity appears when the author creates new connotations and suggestive that aim at a purpose according to what he plans for goals and messages that he passes on to the recipient, who in turn searches beyond the images that seem realistic. But it hides deeper meanings, the linguistic representation goes beyond the visual images, it is an infinite suggestion because it is an artistic image that is distinguished by being the fruit of selection and refinement to the tangible material taken from nature and human life and its goal is to stimulate aesthetic emotion, drawn with light and shadow, transgressing the limits of vision to the place with its physical dimensions to other intangible dimensions.

The general budgeting systems followed after 2003 in Iraq are based on sections and items. It focuses on achieving revenue without any consideration for medium or long-term planning. Productivity and performance factors are not evaluated. Revenue realization focuses on rules, procedures and regulations more than Its focus is on economic efficiency. Public expenditures are determined in the light of their implications because of a lack of focus on the optimal use of these resources, resulting in a waste of these resources. This means that public budgets in Iraq are structured on the basis that public expenditures are classified administratively, i.e. General expenses are distributed to departments and ministries whose budgets are included in the general budget in the form of appropriations or annual allocations, then these annual amounts allocated to each administrative unit are classified in a qualitative form, according to the purpose of the expenditure, which are called expenditure items or items of expenditure and are often similar . The budgets are a replication of what has been the general budgets in Iraq since 2004, which differ from each other except in the estimated figures of public revenues and public expenditures, as they can be described as distributive budgets whose main task is to distribute Iraqi oil revenues at the exchange doors.
