  10. Here's another article with similar content but a different twist on the title: Parliamentary Finance is considering deleting zeros from the currency, despite the exclusion of their application SEPTEMBER 7TH, 2019 Compatible with supply and demand movement and equal to «difficult» Baghdad - the new morning: The parliamentary Finance Committee revealed a study to delete zeros from the national currency, but ruled out the application at the moment for several reasons. The committee's rapporteur Ahmed al-Saffar said in a press statement that «the proposal to delete the zeros had been submitted from the House of Representatives to the parliamentary Finance Committee in order to study the change of the national currency and all categories and the printing of new currencies, but the preliminary study showed that the costs needed by the project large». He added that «the budget deficit for this year and the debt of Iraq is one of the most important reasons that will delay the deletion of zeros (three zeros)», noting that «the Finance Committee has assigned specialized bodies of monetary policy to study the project carefully to submit to the Finance Committee to put the main lines of this project, which "Its beginnings go back years." Al-Saffar pointed out that «deleting zeros is a project with psychological effects more than being actual, as the citizen will feel that his money is compatible with the requirements of his life and the movement of supply and demand and equal to hard currency». The Finance Committee in the House of Representatives, said at the end of August, that «there is a tendency to re-work the coin, which was used for decades in the country». She stressed the importance of pre-empting the coinage process by step «delete zeros» from the current currencies to be a value for small cash groups. Committee member Hanin al-Qadu, that «during meetings and discussions with officials at the Central Bank stressed the need to re-work coins that were used in Iraq during the past decades, rather than paper that is damaged and printed in large quantities again». He added that «the use of metal categories and their descent for circulation gives a notional value of the currency», pointing out that «the exchange rates of the currencies of a number of neighboring countries are very high against the dollar, however we find that it has a coin in order to preserve the currency and not need to ask for more banknotes Especially the small ones. ” He expressed surprise at the policy of the Central Bank, which does not favor the introduction of coins for circulation in the Iraqi market. For his part, a member of Parliamentary Finance Majid al-Waeli readiness of the Committee to prepare any legislation required by the Central Bank, which could benefit the economy and the Iraqi market, including the circulation of coins. A member of the Finance Committee, Ahmed al-Saffar, he saw that «the cost of coin is more than paper, as well as the harder to carry on the citizen». Al-Saffar suggested that «there is a step to delete the zeros preceding the coinage process to be a value for the small groups versus the large».

  12. Talk about re-work coin and delete the zeros from the paper 19/08/2019 A member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee revealed that there is a tendency to reintroduce the coin that has been used for decades in the country, while another member of the Committee proposed to pre-empt the coining process by “deleting zeros” from the current currencies so that there would be value for the small cash classes. The committee member, MP Hanin al-Qadu, that "during meetings and discussions with officials at the Central Bank stressed the need to re-work coins that were used in Iraq during the past decades, rather than paper that is damaged and printed in large quantities again." He explained, "The use of metal categories and their descent for trading gives a notional value of the currency," noting that "a number of neighboring countries (exchange rates are very high against the dollar) and yet we find that it has a coin in order to preserve the currency and not need to request more papers Cash, especially in small categories. " He expressed surprise at the "policy of the Central Bank, which does not favor the introduction of coins for circulation in the Iraqi market." The Central Bank of Iraq announced in April 2005 to offer coins of denominations of 25, 50 and 100 dinars for circulation for the first time after it was canceled by the regime of Saddam Hussein after the Gulf War in 1991. The Iraqi currency was canceled in 1991 when the international economic embargo on the country to increase the rate of inflation in Iraq by 1000%, and the result of the situation under the economic siege and a significant rise in prices led to the destruction of the value of the Iraqi currency and reaching a very low and severe exchange rate , Which made the coin and the few currency denominations without value. It is noteworthy that the Iraqi dinar, which was equal to 3.22 dollars before the occupation of the former Iraqi regime of Kuwait in 1990, its value fell to one dollar equivalent to three thousand dinars by 1996. Another member of Parliamentary Finance said, "The cost of a coin is more than paper money, and it is more difficult to carry it on the citizen." MP Ahmed al-Saffar said that "inflation in the economy prevents the minting of coins and make them circulate among citizens," suggesting that "there is a step to delete the zeros before the coinage process to be a value for small groups to large."
