  1. Friday, 28 June 2013 15:22 altShafaq News / A report issued by the International Center for Development Studies headquartered in the British capital London , confirmed on Friday that Iraq, in which its budget reached to nearly 119 billion $ for this year does not have but what it is converts by the International Monetary Fund from the selling oil revenues in the Development Fund for Iraq. “The Iraqi economy has been suffering since a period from sharp fluctuations in the exchange rate of dinar that clearly reflected on the economic situation of the Iraqi citizen,” The report, briefed by “Shafaq News” said. The report attributed this to the money laundering operations as well as financial and administrative corruption in the Iraqi state, which led to Iraq’s loss of nearly three billion dollars in just two months in 2012. The Central Bank of Iraq (CBI) announced in August of last year that its hard currency reserves amounted to 67 billion $ while the Iraqi government announced that the preventive funds in the Development Fund for Iraq amounted to 18 billion$. CBI’s reserves of gold has fallen by 20%, in less than a year from nearly 39 tons in 2011 to 31 tons in 2012, while some accuse the current Presidency of the central bank of being responsible for the disappearance of ten tons of gold reserves, Iraq needs to these reserves to enhance the value of the Iraqi dinar funds in money markets abroad. International Center for Development Studies pointed out that some powerful parties in the Iraqi government are seeking to take advantage of the surplus oil revenues to exploit the reserves built by Iraq during the past ten years to maximize their assets abroad. The decline in CBI’s reserve is considered a serious matter for the Iraqi economy because it depends on cash revenues from oil sales which means that Iraq's lack of flexibility margin to cope with fluctuations in international oil prices and maintain the required economic balance Friday, 28 June 2013 15:22

  5. NEW YORK/SINGAPORE: Iraq made its first major move in years to boost its gold reserves in recent months, joining central banks from emerging market economies such as Brazil and Russia in diversifying its foreign reserves. Central bank purchases have been one of the biggest drivers of gold's rally since 2010 - a year which saw central banks turning net buyers of the precious metal for the first time in two decades amid growing doubts about the stability of the dollar as the world's top reserve currency. Over the course of three months between August and October this year, Iraq's gold holdings quadrupled to 31.07 tonnes, the International Monetary Fund's monthly statistics report showed on Thursday. In the first change in its reserve in years, the country added some 23.9 tonnes in August, bringing the total to 29.7 tonnes. That was followed by a 2.3-tonne rise in September to 32.09 tonnes and then by a cut of 1.02 tonnes in October to 31.07 tonnes. There was no data for November. "It was interesting that Iraq bought gold," a Sydney-based trader said on Friday. "Gold bulls will cheer the news as more central bank buying will support gold prices in the future, but the market currently is a little distracted by other things, namely the U.S. 'fiscal cliff' talks." Spot gold prices are set for their twelfth straight year of gains in 2012. Over this period gold gained the most, around 30 percent, in 2007 and 2010. But right now gold is facing pressure from end-of-the-year fund liquidation and the uncertainty hanging over U.S. talks to avert the "fiscal cliff" of tax hikes and spending cuts that would kick in early next year and threatens to tip the economy back into recession. Among other central banks, Brazil increased its gold holdings for a third straight month in November, raising its reserves by almost a third to 67.199 tonnes. Russia, added 2.86 tonnes to raise its gold reserves to 937.82 tonnes, the eighth highest gold holdings in the world. The United States, the top gold holder, has more than 8,100 tonnes of the precious metal in its reserves, data from the World Gold Council (WGC) showed. South Korea's central bank bought 14 tonnes of gold in November, lifting the country's gold holdings to 84.4 tonnes. Official sector's gold buying in the first three quarters of the year at 351.8 tonnes already exceeds the total for 2011, the WGC said. But some countries trimmed their gold holdings, including Turkey, Sri Lanka, Mexico and Mongolia.

  6. Iraqis view the case of the central bank as a part of the political conflict. Sinan al-Shabibi, the former governor of Iraq?s Central Bank ? the highest monetary authority in the country ? was not the only banker who made it onto the wanted list in Baghdad. Hussein al-Uzri, the former head of the state-owned Trade Bank, preceded Shabibi. Both bankers are, maybe by complete happenstance, friends with the prominent banker and politician Ahmed Chalabi, who went from being one of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki?s supporters to one of his opponents. Perhaps it is also a coincidence that he happened to take on substantial roles in the process of redeveloping the Iraqi economy that was launched by Paul Bremer, governor of Iraq after 2003. Shabibi assumed the position of Iraq?s Central Bank Administrator and thus was responsible for exchange rates and exchange reserves, while Uzri became head of the Trade Bank of Iraq, which regulates Iraq?s international trade and funds reconstruction operations. The prime minister?s rivals in Baghdad have noted that Maliki, for nearly a year now, has been carrying out a plan to grab hold of power in this country in which political divisions escalate proportionally with an increase in fuel production. Maliki is accused of launching a campaign to monopolize power, following the complete withdrawal of US military troops. In that sense, Maliki discharged Uzri in the middle of last year, after accusing the latter of being involved in corruption. This is the same charge upon which Shabibi?s arrest warrants were issued a month ago. The latest accusation facing Maliki concerns his attempt to use his power to influence Iraq?s central bank. This interference is prohibited by lists that were set by Bremer back in 2004. The central bank is viewed as a model for how the US wants modern Iraq to be, and a symbol of transparency in a country that was plagued with corruption during the era of the late President Saddam Hussein. In 2004, Bremer drafted a special law for the central bank, which granted the bank a large degree of independence from government policies. The bank was in charge of exchange rates, amidst a general economic scene that had been characterized by oscillations for many years, as a result of economic sanctions imposed on Saddam Hussein?s regime. Since then, the central bank decided to intervene directly with exchange rates and thus a committee was formed to hold auctions three times per week to sell the foreign currency for a fixed price. Hence, the bank succeeded in stabilizing and preserving the required rate, even though it was losing $1 million weekly from exchange reserves. It was not long before the central bank went ahead with increasing the value of the Iraqi dinar by 20% relative to the US dollar. It went from a rate of 1500 Iraqi dinar per one dollar at the end of 2003, to a rate of 1200 per one dollar at the end of 2004. However, the international sanctions imposed on Iran because of its nuclear program, and on Syria following the suppression of protests, have pushed the Iraqi Central Bank into the spotlight. The unofficial version of the story is that the US asked Shabibi to tighten the procedures for currency selling within the local market, in order to prohibit money transfers to Iran and Syria, which were both under sanctions. When the central bank complied with the suggestion, the Iraqi government was outraged. In April of last year, the central bank adopted a series of measures to rein in what was said to be smuggling operations aiming at providing Iranian and Syrian banks with foreign currencies from Iraq. These measures included decreasing the sale of US dollars from about $1 million per week to $300,000 at most. This had a direct impact on the exchange rate of the Iraqi dinar, which decreased in value by about 5% against the US dollar. Prominent politicians in Baghdad noted that these measures ? which, on a general level, were aimed at preserving the exchange rate and, on a deeper level, to tighten the grip on Syria and Iran ? angered Maliki. This incited him to interfere ? as he has done before ? by appointing one of his close acquaintances as head of the Trade Bank. As a result, the cabinet authorized Abdel Baset Turki, the head of the Board of Supreme Audit, to run the central bank temporarily. Informed sources in Baghdad hinted that Shabibi was replaced as a result of a deal concluded between Maliki and the head of parliament, Osama al-Najafi. The sources stated that Najafi, who strongly objected to Maliki?s attempt to take over the central bank, agreed on discharging Shabibi after making sure that the prime minister would assign a Sunni, Abdel Baset Turki, as his replacement, even though the latter is a potential ally of Maliki. The committee formed by the head of parliament to investigate the accusations of alleged financial impropriety against Shabibi disclosed that more than a billion dollars were sold during the bank?s auction without tracing the sources of the money. However, sources close to Maliki confirmed that the prime minister?s anger is related to Shabibi?s failure to hand over legal documents related to the selling procedures of about $220 billion in the auction. Some of these sources claim that certain bank documents were counterfeited in an unprofessional way, yet ? despite that ? have eluded auditing. This is a fact that was later revealed by the parliamentary committee. It is still unclear whether or not international parties will intervene to investigate the central bank case. While a member of the parliamentary financial committee announced last week that a delegation from the United Nations had arrived in Iraq to investigate this case, the UN Mission in Baghdad and the ministry of foreign affairs have both denied the claim. Many Iraqis view the case of the central bank as a part of the political conflict in Iraq, and feel that the investigations will not lead to anything. The many problems deterring economic growth in Iraq ? such as the case of the central bank and the fuel and gas law, among others ? will not be solved if consensual political agreements are not reached. Yet, the attempts to change the rules of the political game ? set by the US after its military withdrawal ? require, according to many Iraqis, a reconsideration on the part of Washington.

Yesterday, escalated tensions on the price of Iraqi currency and the gradual degradation in front of the U.S. dollar, and then came the economic decisions of the Committee of Ministers to declare a desire to issue a formal request to the U.S. government to extend the executive decision of the Judge President of the U.S. to protect Iraqi funds. And between this and that hesitation to talk about the disappearance of huge sums estimated at several billions of dollars in past years, and did not find conclusive answer them. this imbalance explicit policies and actions dealt with "World Bank" in the report is extremely important and hinted that the great imbalance in the financial position and cash lies in the number of joints and the most important of turmoil and underdevelopment that afflict the banking sector, both official (government) and civil (private).

And what did the administration's official monetary sector on the approaching expiration of the protection of the U.S. Iraqi funds amounting to less than a month, where it ends in May next. It is also wise and right frequency the question of the size of Iraq's money accumulated in the bank account U.S. and return to Iraq and now required to renew protection. that the problem was and still is in the poor performance the official, it is not true over-stated principles and quote some of the articles of the Constitution to justify the wrong practices or inadequate , Vamenhjah officials declared the official direct-deficient adults, where there is neglect of the economic situation and the need to reform an environment necessary for monetary policy and the prosperity of opinion between the last estimated the economic difficulties and considers it a reason for some of the palaces. The Constitution is explicit in its emphasis on the link between monetary policy and economic development, but consider them to two twin. The reference to "independence" absolutely is a tendency to kind of isolationism, something that can not be accepted in the state designed to build on the foundations of a new and modern, if obtained practices or procedures wrong or not the required level, how can be addressed without returning to the rules of power and public order in the state? Valastqlalah accepted principle within the specific terms of reference and subject to general principles of the administrative system of the state. and this is what should be referred to as a way guarantee any particular abuses and as a way to keep the state funds and the safety and vital power of cash.
