    The concept of restructuring the banking sector is not limited to reviewing banks ’capital, in proportion to their role in the development process, with the introduction of technologies and electronic systems that contribute to the development of performance and the reduction of sagging rings, in addition to the training and development axis for raising the efficiency of workers in the context of ensuring the provision of the best services At a Competitive cost .


    As the concept of restructuring withdraws to the process of merging between small banks to create large banks that can provide various and integrated banking services, while some observers see the concept of "restructuring the banking sector" as an indication of the possibility of privatizing government banks in the context of the transformation from the state's economic system towards a market system. 

    In the second axis first of the white paper presented by the government, indicating that the level of capital of all government banks will be addressed, a sign that heralds the tendency towards a social market economy in which the state shares with the private sector in many circles and Economic axes.

    However, government banks are legally described as public companies, and these companies are referred to in paragraph IV of the same axis with a paragraph that says (legislation of a law to restructure public companies and transform them into private companies) by studying the financial situation and assessing their viability, while this paragraph emphasized the evaluation of companies Among the successful companies that are totally or partially privatized, or converted into mixed joint-stock companies, which are distressed and restructured to turn them into successful companies within three years, and failed to be liquidated, with job slack in these companies being addressed after the previous procedures by transferring surplus labor to public works. 

    This suggests to the reader that government banks, some of which suffer from financial imbalances, are expected to merge and do not exceed seven banks, or for privatization, within the time period specified by the paper, at a time when the private banking sector does not occupy more than ten percent of the area of banking transactions according to indicators Capital, credit rates and announced deposit ratios, at a time that is intended for him to lead the process of withdrawing the hoarded cash mass and rotating it in the trading arena, and to contribute to creating real development and paving the way for foreign capital flows.

    Al-Samarrai added to “Al-Sabah” that “this rise will continue until the supply and demand gap in the market shrinks,” stressing “the importance of not acquiring the dollar and dealing with it in buying and selling, in small transactions, and relying on the dinar in daily commercial dealings, because that will reduce the demand for it. Width increases ”.

    Effect of circumstances
     
    As for the economic researcher Ammar Haider, he said that "such an imbalance in the exchange rate is possible as a result of the conditions that the country is going through," stressing that "this reality had previously gone through Iraq after stabilizing the dollar exchange rate during the years 2012 and 2013."
    Haidar pointed out that "the high price of the dollar in Iraq is related to the economic threats and concerns that the country may be exposed to due to regional conditions and fears of the outbreak of conflicts in the region that may have repercussions on the country."
    He explained that "Iraq is an oil-producing country and that the news reported by various media has created a state of unjustified panic among Iraqis."

  17. Filled Sheet

    Sunday 18 October 2020

    Yasser Al-Metwally 
     
     

    Now that the white paper has been completed and the government submitted it to Parliament, it seems that the paper is full and not white .. How?


    Those who follow the scheduling of organizing the paper will find it truly integrated in form and as a strategic plan to save the country's economy, distributed according to the basic economic theory in the content of economic plans, which are divided into three plans, the first of which is a short-term plan and its duration is a calendar year, the second is a medium-term five-year plan, and the third is a long-term plan. 

    And its duration is a quarter of a century.


    There are some observations that are taken on the content of the paper. While this paper was called (the final report of the emergency cell for financial reform), it was more appropriate to call it (the final report of economic reform) due to its comprehensiveness in developing strategic plans and financial reform is part of the reform, and even dealing with it does not suggest the specialization of the paper.

    There are other shortcomings that we will come to in the context of this press column or in a later column.
    Well what is required now to do?

    To begin with, it is necessary to start with the short plan, which is more important because it is the beginning of the journey and the pursuit of the objectives of the country's strategic economic plan.

    It is clear that the contents of the white paper will invite Parliament to approve it because it clearly identified the challenges and clearly explained the reality of the economy as it is, and then presented real solutions that cannot be overlooked and formulated with clear specialized ideas for that which I called the full paper.

    The most important challenge now with the beginning of the implementation of the reforms implicit in the essence of the paper is how to address the provision of the necessary revenues to meet the necessary needs of salaries and basic living outside the oil resource, because the fluctuation of oil prices has no end except with the end of the Corona pandemic.

    This means that the focus of the short-term plan will focus on seeking to diversify sources of income by controlling customs revenues, controlling tax collection and the revenues of producing companies, and on the other hand, pressure public expenditures and rationalizing consumption, in addition to following an austerity policy at the beginning.

    Privatization is an effective way to provide large revenues, and here it means liquidating some losing companies that cost the budget huge sums without economic benefit, as well as encouraging private investment to restore life to idle factories (industrial reform) that did not take up space consistent with its importance as the industry is the strongest source in generating resources, in addition to Activating the national product protection law, which provides job opportunities for many of the unemployed workers.
    There is another source that contributes to solving the problem of revenues, which is the work to return the looted capital, strike the sites of corruption and accelerate the resolution of this file.

    In conjunction with these priorities, future oil revenues must be directed towards transforming economically feasible investments that help complement economic reforms, in addition to establishing sovereign funds that will be a safety valve in times of shocking crises. Can the government implement the contents and objectives of its filled out paper? The answer is yes in only one case, which is the concerted efforts and support of the legislative and judicial authorities and the fourth authority for the government's attempts to implement accurately its steps. In return, the government needs the citizen’s patience and given it the opportunity to save the country's economy from its difficult ordeal.
    We watch to see how things will go and keep talking

    The economic expert, Ahmed Jassim, confirmed, on Sunday, that the white paper presented by the government is behind the rise in the exchange rates of the dollar, expecting the rates of increase to increase unless the Central Bank addresses the matter.

    "The white paper put forward by the government indicated a decrease in the reserves of the Central Bank, which discusses the Central Bank's statement issued today," Jassim told Al-Maaloumah.

    He added that "the white paper included reducing salaries and adopting austerity in monetary policy," noting that "the matter raised the concerns of traders and capital owners and pushed them to withdraw hard currency from the market, which led to its rise."

    Jassim explained that "the solution can be bypassed with simple steps through the central injection of the dollar currency to the market more than demand, to restore stability in its price within the normal rates," noting that "failure to implement this step will push the dollar to a further rise."

    18th October 2020


    The consultant of Islamic banks, d. Bashar Qaddouri said the reasons for the rise in the dollar are "fabricated, not real."

    Kaddouri said in a statement to (Al-Mustaqilla) that "the exchange rate is fixed and stable in the Central Bank. What happened is that the black market outside the authority of the Central Bank is the one who caused this crisis in the phantom rise."

    He pointed out that "the rise was behind it by corrupt money and some speculators who do not want the exchange rate to stabilize, for reasons such as undermining the confidence of citizens in the central bank, as well as embarrassing the new governor before the government, especially after a wave of objections by some corrupt politicians with banking and commercial interests."

    Yes Iraq - Baghdad

     

    The Economic Advisor to the Prime Minister Mazhar Muhammad Salih confirmed that the intervention of the Rafidain Bank in the activities of buying and selling may provide stability in the exchange market.

    Saleh said, in statements monitored by "Yass Iraq": The development of windows for selling the dollar through the first governmental commercial bank, that is, the Rafidain Bank, is the embodiment of the money market operations that the bank practices to buy and sell dollars with its customers from banking companies on behalf of the monetary authority.

    Saleh added that: This matter is a new direction to develop the operations of the (wholesale) money market for foreign currency. The intervention of Al-Rafidain in the activities of buying and selling may provide stability in the exchange market, but depends on meeting the new window for the total foreign cash demand (from outside the remittance market) because it is feeding Demand by way of remittances is still one of the tasks of the window of sale and purchase of foreign currency for the Central Bank of Iraq, which constitutes more than 90% of the need for foreign exchange in order to finance foreign trade for the private sector.

    He explained: There is a correlation in the formation of the exchange rate and its movements in the secondary market between the remittance market and the dollar cash market. The latter market is highly correlated and highly sensitive to the information market and is affected by it quickly, so the cash dollar market is considered one of the most sensitive markets in driving the price in the parallel market for exchange, but it is encouraging at the same time to form an effective and highly flexible offer from outside the Rafidain monetary window.

    And Saleh continued that: By virtue of the current monetary behavior of individuals in the local economy that is semi-dollarized and the composition of the demand for foreign currency, which is based on the hoard of individuals in foreign currency or their bank deposits in the same foreign currency, we find that there is a foreign reserve (latent) and prepared for effective supply in the cash dollar market estimated by Some, in total, about not less than 7-10 billion dollars, which are saturated sums that are kept with individuals, most of them outside the local banking system, and are sometimes used in settling large internal transactions such as dealing with real estate, land, transport, gold, and others.

    A member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, Naji Al-Saeedi, on Sunday (10/18-2020), said that printing the currency by the Central Bank is a violation of the law, and will harm the country's economic position and float the currency.

    He continued: "The beneficiaries of this process are the joint banks in the window of selling the currency," considering it "legal theft of the people's money."
