  1. " Putin also boasted that Russia’s “hypersonic” weapon system will be the best in the world within months. Such a system would allow missile speeds of at least five times the speed of sound, or about one mile per second, CNBC reported." They finally made something that will definatley fail .........over another country . Dangerous

    Pokerplayer , Good Morning . To me it means a few things . Yet another country making changes to the currency and perhaps some kind of reform in France . Iraq will soon be International . They must be aware of changes to all currencies and monetary policies on an International level. I think its good news . Iraq heading for their big entrance into International status .
  3. I think this collection of currencies symbolizes the past of Iraq's Former Glory . At a time when they are about to introduce the new ?

Al–Luiebi is also head of that new national oil company, and he made the decision in his capacity as company chief, not as oil minister, Jihad noted. The nine companies that will go under the ownership of the new national oil company are state marketing company SOMO, Iraqi Oil Exploration Company, Iraqi Drilling Company, North Oil Company, Midland Oil Company, Basra Oil Company, Dhi Qar Oil Company, Maysan Oil Company, and Iraqi Oil Tankers Company. Last week, al-Luiebi was appointed president of the INOC. Earlier this year, the Iraqi Parliament voted to re-establish the national oil company that was dissolved back in 1987, when it became part of the oil ministry. The new oil company will manage the upstream operations in Iraq, while the oil ministry will be in charge of the strategic and regulatory decisions. Iraq is in a government transition period after months of political deadlock following the general elections in May. Earlier this month, the new president of Iraq, Barham Salih, picked a former oil minister and finance minister—Adel Abdul-Mahdi—as Prime Minister-designate. Abdul-Mahdi called upon outgoing government officials not to sign urgent contracts, make non-essential hires, or make other key decisions, although, according to Reuters, it’s not clear if that call was related to al-Luiebi’s decree to transfer the ownership of the state oil firms to the new umbrella company. The PM-designate Abdul-Mahdi, meanwhile, said on Wednesday that he would present his picks for the new government for approval next week. Abdul-Mahdi has until early November to form the new Iraqi cabinet. By Tsvetana Paraskova for

    Iranian Rial

    I think this is a part of the next step of China demanding Saudi Arabia take Yuan for their oil because they are now the largest oil consumer . Further separation along the new Trade route agreements of New one Belt one Road. And the new Nafta agreements . That's just my opinion though
  9. Botz. Good Evening . Its been about a week and a half since they began telling us about the release and pictures of the lower notes . The 250 and the 500 . Then I guess they started speaking of the 1000 note . I feel they are still educating the citizens on the notes they are releasing. There was an article that mention coins . Will the CBI show us the new Fils (coins) next ? I don't know . But it seems that they are releasing more an more information as the days go by . I guess they could immediately rv/ri . I just feel they are still education the citizens first . I would like not to believe the RV/RI is next year . Sometime this year would be amazing for me . I'm trying to keep my dinar goggles away from the actions of them disconnecting the internet . I don't believe the disconnection is for the purpose of the exam
  10. It's not quite time for the RV or the RI ....... But I do think this has more to it then just the exams . Education is important but you don't sacrifice the livelihood of businesses of ALL Iraq when you are doing everything to launch businesses in your country . They done this in the past but they announced it a week or so in advance. This is strange

    Central Bank: Deletes zeros still exist Financial expert: Deleting zeros from the currency is a correct procedure .. but not at the present time Posted 2 hours ago Add a comment Source: Al - Zawra Newspaper Source: Al - Zawra Newspaper بغداد/ نينا : اكد الخبير المالي صفوان قصي عبد الحليم ، يوم امس السبت، ان الوضع الاقتصادي الحالي لا يسمح بتنفيذ مشروع حذف الاصفار من العملة عازيا ذلك ،للظروف غير المستقرة في منطقة الشرق الاوسط واحتمالية وجود عملات محلية غير شرعية تبحث عن طريقة للدخول في النظام المصرفي المحلي . وقال عبد الحليم في تصريح للوكالة الوطنية العراقية للانباء / نينا / ان ” البنك المركزي العراقي يحاول اعادة الثقة بالعملة العراقية وإدخالها سوق العملات الدولية وتسهيل مهمة العمليات الحسابية من خلال حذف الأصفار ، مؤكدا أن الوضع الاقتصادي الحالي لا يسمح بذلك بسبب الظروف غير المستقرة في منطقة الشرق الاوسط واحتمالية وجود عملات محلية غير شرعية تبحث عن طريقة للدخول في النظام المصرفي المحلي”. He pointed out that "the project can disrupt the monetary policy and the value of the Iraqi dinar, so the procedure to delete zeros is a correct procedure, but the current government to choose the appropriate time to replace the currency and transparent and subject to the highest degrees of control. The governor of the Central Bank Ali Alaq announced earlier the existence of a plan to delete zeros from the local currency, noting that "this plan needs to deliberate steps, so as not to be exploited in the work of fraud." Al-Alaq said in a press statement that "currencies with small categories, may lead the citizen to bid farewell to banks in the difficulty of storage." "The central bank has a future plan to restructure the Iraqi currency, including the deletion of zeros, but this plan needs to take deliberate steps, and a stable situation in full so as not to be exploited in the work of fraud and others..............He Is Not The CBI. Just an Econmist . I personally think Alak is still moving forward. And very well forward at that .
  13. I also agree there never was a guarantee on our investment nor the success of Iraq as a whole. But I can't question the United States commitment to Iraq being a success. I will continue to bet on the commitment of United States . Iraqs reforms including there monetary system are a part of that commitment. That Bet .....
