" Al-Aqidi added, "The change of the dollar’s exchange rate by the state and subjecting it to speculation through supply and demand came to add additional funds to the budget and stop the currency drain and its exit from the country because of the old exchange rate." He pointed out that "the news and statements, a large part of which are issued by political forces, have already pushed them to refrain from withdrawing the dollar and replacing it with the local currency. Many merchants and importers have also pushed for waiting and deliberation in import operations awaiting the settlement of the budget that has been postponed for months due to multiple obstacles, and this matter in its entirety created a recession In the Iraqi market, as well as the effects of the embargo and other things, all of which contributed to the doubling of the recession and the lack of economic activity.

Al-Mashhadani added, "Iraqi merchants have refrained from importing because of objecting to the new price, as well as fear of the possibility of adjusting the price again," indicating that "it is not easy to return to the old price or to amend the new one, because this process will cause greater confusion in the Iraqi market and this." First obstacle. " The economist added, "The exchange rate adjustment has passed for more than 4 months, and the price has stabilized, and the process led to an increase in the value of the property and imported goods due to the high value of the dollar, and this is a second real obstacle." Representatives in Parliament and other officials are calling for a return to the exchange rate of the dollar against the Iraqi dinar to what it was before it was raised, or reduced to 1300 instead of the current price that was allocated in the draft Federal Budget Law for 2021.
