I find the Qi cards are very important as to direction Iraq is going with their currency.  I thought it might be interesting to have some dialogue and discussion on them.  Let's start with the big question,  what relevance could they possibly hold for an rv?  Or do they?  Are they significant to the overall financial structure in Iraq?  It might be fun to explore all possibilities.  Please avoid bringing religious belief systems in the discussion.

I think because of the crime rates in Iraq they are vital in reducing this. Whether or not they relate directly to a currency change is another matter. However, if they are going to be able to use them internationally then their currency would need to be an internationally recognised one. So indirectly yes it can be argued that they are important. Additionally, if the rate was to remain where it is... would it be worth having an international card? If an iragi was to order something via the internet... by the time the exchange rate is applied their account could be pretty much empty. If i remember correctly they are only going to have 400 dinar charged on them, all be it this will be paid back to Jan. 1st 2013. that however is a very small amout of dinar in the world markets, thus it maybe considered to be one if the catalysts in the increase in the rate. JMHO. :)

Yeah Betty if the 400 is correct that would only be 30 something cents. The card probably cost much more than that just to issue.

Outside the major Cities the lack of any infrastructure to support these cards is dubious. The lack of electricity, the cost of the card readers, leased or otherwise, let alone the lowly ammount of money on them and how they would charge to recoup the huge financial input required to set it up?. So many things to consider, not least the monetary culture of the country being so hands on and haggling trading before a price is agreed upon, look at maps of mobile/wifi coverage that are available on line to us that show the upgrade required to introduce these cards to everyone as their only means of accesing their money. It is funny initialy driving around and seeing people riding on donkey drawn carts, but using a mobile phone, but once outside these more "modern" areas the lowly lifestyle is nearly beyond comprehension. America threw billions of $'s into this country but still failed to overcome the corruption and greed of those that, as a way of life, took what was theirs, and it is still happening every day whether it be a few Dinar or $1000 dollars, or materials from sites that just drain the budget and finaly cause it to grind to a halt and expire. IMO this is no overnight project, nor anything to effect an RV.

My understanding is that the Qi cards will also be used as a way to vote in the elections and that when we see release of budget funds, that they'll be delivered through the Qi cards.  So, this, IMO, and from my understanding is a good indicator that things are moving towards (in some way) currency reform.

 BAGHDAD / older / discussed by the Committee on pensions for members of provincial councils mechanism to find solutions to their pensions. A statement from the committee received "agency secrets news / not /" copy of it, that "Torhan Mufti and Minister of State for Provincial Affairs met today with the Committee of the Regions and the provinces parliamentary representative بالنائبة Huda Carpets and director of public pension Ahmed Abdul-Jabbar and representatives from the Ministry of State for Provincial Affairs, and the mufti confirmed that work is continuing in order to find solutions to the salaries of members of former provincial.

IMO, these articles are indicators they're preparing to fund the Qi cards.  When we see articles like these, but which state "PAID", then we'll see that the budget has been released.  




The second generation of cards (for Card) is available for all, starting from next week

I think at this point, the Qi cards are activated, but not loaded.
