  1. CNN. Broadcasting With Crayons While Working On The ‘White Paper’ ! The government begins implementing the steps of the White Paper and Parliament welcomes 11/07/2020 09:02:53 PM Baghdad / extent The Parliamentary Finance and Economy Committees welcomed the control of the security forces over the first border entry points (Mandali and Munthiriya). They said that these measures are part of the economic reform plan (the white paper) that the government has promised to implement. (Al-Mada) revealed last week that Mustafa Al-Kazimi's government is preparing to implement a broad security plan to extend its influence on all border crossings because of the extent of corruption in the outlets, which is estimated at 12 billion dollars annually. The government loses control of six border ports on a daily basis from four in the afternoon until eight in the morning the following day. Armed parties also take advantage of unauthorized outlets, and corrupt goods, merchandise, and drugs, and even forbidden materials such as drugs, are entered into Iraq in coordination with influential figures, according to officials and observers who spoke to (Al-Mada) earlier. Faisal al-Issawi, a member of the Finance Committee in the House of Representatives, said in a statement to (Al-Mada) that "the current economic situation needs radical solutions, not temporary patchwork, and therefore the House of Representatives committed the government to introduce economic reforms within sixty days starting from the date of the approval of the law of local and external borrowing ". The circumstances of the financial crisis and the repercussions of the Corona Virus pandemic prompted the government of Mustafa Al-Kazemi to present the domestic and foreign borrowing law to be able to secure the salaries of state employees. Al-Issawi explains that "in the event that the government does not comply with these deadlines (sixty days), the Finance Committee in the House of Representatives will present a proposal for an economic reform law to change the direction of the economy from an economy dependent on the state's imports to a resource-generating economy for employment and development opportunities," considering that "reliance on oil revenues The distribution of salaries is a deviation that needs to be addressed in the Economic Reform Law. Last June, Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi confirmed that his government prepared a white paper for the expected economic reforms, and took preliminary recommendations, which are being discussed before moving forward, pointing to “the need for complementarity between the government and the parliament to support these new reforms.” The deputy from Anbar province confirms that "there is communication between parliament and the government through the cell of the economic crisis that formed earlier as it was agreed on the general vision of the economic paper," stressing that there is unity in "opinions and ideas between the executive and legislative branches on passing reforms". The Council of Ministers had previously decided to form an emergency cell for financial reform, headed by the Prime Minister and membership of both the Minister of Finance, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Minister of Planning, the Governor of the Central Bank, the Advisers to the Prime Minister, the Secretary General of the Council of Ministers, and a representative of the General Secretariat of the Council of Ministers. And the independent deputy adds: "We have now come up with a general perception of the white paper, and how it is directed by the government," adding that "however, there are interventions to divert the white paper path from a number of entities represented in extending the work of telecommunications companies." (Al-Mada) revealed in its report on the twenty-third of last June that "the economic white paper is made up of reform packages that will be launched and implemented in the form of three phases. The first is short-term and is represented by the state's control of border ports and ports, and tackling the corruption of the currency auction and the smuggling of hard currency, Reducing the salaries of the three presidencies and solving the problem of state real estate. The report adds, "As for the second stage of the reform paper, it will be medium-term, represented by restoring the Iraqi industry, solving the problem of corruption, and protecting the local product," pointing out that "the third stage will be long-term and includes major strategic projects." A member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee points out that "the security forces' full control of the (Mandali and Munthiriya) border executives is part of the reform plan adopted by the government, which was committed to implementing it before the parliament to save the economy." The Joint Operations Command announced in a statement that "the Rapid Response Forces and the Popular Mobilization entered the border executives (Mandali and Munthiriya) and imposed full control and inspection of them," stressing that "the allocation of elite forces to maintain them permanently to combat corruption and eliminate it, implementing measures smoothly and in accordance with the law, and imposing state prestige ". For his part, Mazen al-Faili, a member of the Economic Committee in the House of Representatives, confirms that "Parliament’s sessions at the present time have been disrupted due to the Corona crisis, which has made it impossible for us to discuss the measures of the government that I took in the recent period, especially the issue of outlets." (Al-Mada) revealed last week that Mustafa Al-Kazimi's government is preparing to announce a security plan to extend its influence over all border outlets in the governorates, where the Finance Committee in the House of Representatives estimated the extent of corruption prevailing in the border outlets at $ 12 billion annually, due to the control of armed groups and clans over These ports. In a statement to (Al-Mada), Al-Faili shows that "the parliament's economic and investment committee demands the government with the participation of parliament committees to prepare economic reforms," saying that "the government's move towards the outlets is a step in the right direction." He adds that "tightening control by the security forces on these outlets would be a precursor to going to the other border outlets, controlling them and ensuring that their revenues enter the treasury of a state."

  2. CNN. Broadcasting From An Iraqi Border Crossing While A Herd Of Sheep Passes Thru To Iran - But The Guys Counting Them Keep Falling Asleep ! Iraq begins paying its debts to Iran with goods 07/25 2020 08:29:49 PM Baghdad / extent The Secretary General of the Iranian-Iraqi Chamber of Commerce Hamid Hosseini announced the establishment of a company in Iraq to settle Baghdad's debts to Tehran, which amount to about five billion dollars, according to a report published by Iranian websites. Hosseini told Farda radio that the company, which will work for the Iranian government, will purchase food commodities to pay off the debts. He explained that, based on a mutual agreement between the two countries, last month, Iran will provide the new company with a list of "commodities and raw materials" it needs, and the company will purchase and ship it to Iran. And Iraq owes Iran the money and gas it imports from it. The payment of Iraqi debts comes through goods, not cash, because Iran is subject to US banking sanctions, so Baghdad cannot transfer foreign currencies to it. According to Radio Farda, Iran is able to import goods only from Iraq, also because of the US sanctions. The Governor of the Central Bank of Iran, Abdel Nasser Hamti, announced, last month, from Baghdad, that Iraq had agreed to settle its debts, related to gas and electricity, to Tehran, by providing food and medicine. He said that the debt funds will be used, in the Iraqi Bank of TBI, to pay for the "commodities" that will be purchased by the newly established company. Iran's non-oil exports to Iraq, excluding electricity and gas, reached nine billion dollars in 2018, while its total imports from Iraq reached only 59 million dollars. Since the beginning of the Iranian calendar year, on March 21, 2019, Tehran has stopped publishing details of its foreign trade. It is worth noting that Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi held talks recently with Iranian leaders on his first official visit abroad since he took office in May. LINK
  3. CNN. Broadcasting Off Of The Dollar Menu From A Baghdad McDonald’s - Super Size Me ! An economist talks about what controls the dollar exchange rate in Iraq Economie 7/20/2020 19:41 441 Baghdad today - Baghdad Economist, Humam Al-Shamaa, on Tuesday (28 July 2020), talked about what controls the dollar exchange rate in Iraq and the effect of internal factors on it. Al-Shamaa said, in an interview with (Baghdad Today), that "the exchange rate of the dollar in local markets has nothing to do with the exchange rate of the dollar in global markets towards other currencies." He added, "What controls the dollar exchange rate in global markets are expectations, oil prices, gold prices and a relationship with the euro. As for Iraq, the relationship between the dollar and the dinar is controlled by internal factors related to the demand and supply of the dollar." And Al-Shamaa said, "The decrease leads to higher prices, inflation and more problems for the poor classes, because the devaluation of the dinar means an increase in the value of commodities." The price of gold reached record levels yesterday, with a new drop in the price of the dollar in the global market at a time when investors rushed to buy it as a safe haven, amid concern about the tension between the United States and China and the rise in the number of cases of Covid-19 again around the world and the lack of progress in Washington on a new package To stimulate the economy. After months of improvement in stock markets, driven by the trillions of dollars of support from governments and central banks, investors are rethinking the long-term economic implications of the emerging corona virus. And at a time when the wide easing measures imposed by the Federal Reserve monetary dollar push the dollar against most of the other currencies, gold rises significantly, reaching a record level of $ 1944.71, which is much higher than the previous record level recorded in 2011 and reached $ 1921.18. The focus is on the next meeting of the Federal Reserve to discuss its policies this week, as some expect that more measures will be imposed to boost the economy (probably negative interest rates), which is expected to increase pressure on the dollar and raise the price of the gold ingot to more than two thousand dollars. There is also concern that recording worse-than-expected results in US gross domestic product for the second quarter of the year will cause major selling to the dollar, and while the weak dollar has been a major driver of the high price of gold, the matter is also driven by the attractiveness of the metal as a haven in times of turmoil, especially in light of the deterioration The relations between the United States and China day after day. Gavin Wendt, chief resource analyst at MineLife Consulting, said: “Strong gains cannot be avoided at a time when we are entering a stage similar to the atmosphere that prevailed in the aftermath of the global financial crisis as gold prices rose to record levels as a result of large amounts of Federal Reserve funds being pumped into Financial system, "and the dollar fell again against other currencies, while the euro reached its highest level since September 2018.

  4. CNN. Broadcasting fundamental changes in the central bank during the coming period ! Washington-Baghdad Dialogue: America wants to strictly implement the sanctions list 7/21/2020 About two weeks before the second session of the strategic dialogue between the United States and Iraq, in which Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi is to participate, an Iraqi official revealed that Washington included a paragraph related to the names of Iraqi, Syrian, Iranian and Lebanese personalities that the US Treasury Department imposed sanctions on in the past two years. The paragraph is related to discussing the seriousness of the Iraqi banks ’commitment to not dealing with these names, as well as discussing some of them escaping sanctions through activities managed by relatives or agents in their favor. The source pointed out that the Al-Kazemi government is in the process of undertaking major reforms in this area, specifically within the Central Bank of Iraq, the body responsible for the matter. Al-Kazemi will participate in the second American-Iraqi dialogue session, during an upcoming official visit to Washington at the end of this July, according to what was previously revealed by Foreign Minister Fuad Hussein. US officials are convinced of the existence of fraud within Iraq, enabling those involved in the sanctions to continue their commercial and financial activities During the past two years, the US Treasury Department has continuously announced the announcement, and through official statements issued by it, on the inclusion of a number of Iraqi personalities and companies on the sanctions list, accompanied by convictions of them, related to what it says are crimes and violations in the field of human rights and financial corruption they committed, And also their cooperation with the Lebanese "Hezbollah" and the Iranian Revolutionary Guards. Among the most prominent of these names are the director of the “Islamic Bank of the Country”, the politician Aras Habib, the governors of Salahuddin and Nineveh, Ahmad al-Jubouri and Nawfal Hammadi al-Akoub, the politician Khamis al-Khanjar, the leader of the militia “Asa’ib” Qais al-Khazali and his brother Laith al-Khazali, and a leader in the “Popular Mobilization” Hussein Faleh Lami. This is in addition to the leader of the "Babylonian" militia, Ryan Al-Kildani, the leader of the "Shabak" militia, Waad al-Qud, and the "al-Nujaba" militia, Akram al-Kaabi. According to a senior Iraqi official, there are officials in the US Treasury Department convinced of the existence of fraud within Iraq, which enabled those involved in the sanctions, whether Iraqis, Syrians, Lebanese or Iranians, to continue their commercial and financial activities, and to obtain hard currency, which prompted the Americans to include a full paragraph In the second dialogue session, Baghdad calls for reforms to be made. The source pointed out that American officials accuse the government of Adel Abdul Mahdi of not responding to the sanctions, and of allowing many of those listed on its regulations to withdraw funds or transfer funds or carry out sales and purchases through agents and relatives, and with the knowledge of the Central Bank of Iraq and other local banks. The Iraqi official also revealed that the Al-Kazemi government will make additional pledges to tighten commitment to US sanctions, and to carry out reforms within the Central Bank of Iraq, and an investigation will be opened with the competent authorities to find out the real reasons behind the failure to implement decisions in this regard may expose Iraq to sanctions. The source acknowledged that there are political and factional influences (armed factions) linked to Iran on the central bank and on other oversight bodies, and that any commitment to the sanctions is considered by the authorities implementing the pressures as labor in favor of the United States. Al-Kazemi’s government will make additional pledges to tighten compliance with sanctions, and to carry out reforms within the central bank The source emphasized that for these reasons, Al-Kazemi intends to make fundamental changes in the central bank during the coming period. For his part, the former official at the Central Bank of Iraq, Mahmoud Dagher, in connection with the "new Arab", stressed his country's commitment to the American sanctions issued against the personalities and companies, stressing that "it is impossible for Iraq not to implement such decisions issued by the American treasury, nor will it risk Not to implement American decisions, as important. Dagher recalled that the Iraqi government "issued a circular to banks under the names of those who were included in the sanctions list, and transfers from them to them were stopped," stressing his country's commitment "to implement such a decision if it was issued against any party or person." The former official in the "Central Bank of Iraq" stressed that his country’s failure to implement the US Treasury Department’s decisions constituted an economic risk to Iraq and the Iraqis, which would stop all financial transfers to Iraq, and for this reason the bank is obliged to implement the sanctions issued against the Iraqi personalities, whatever they may be. On the other hand, a member of the Security and Defense Committee in the Iraqi Parliament, on the authority of the “Al-Fath” coalition, Karim Alaiwi, said that “his bloc is awaiting a position on the part of Al-Kazemi’s government regarding the rejection of unilateral sanctions against Iraqi personalities and entities.” It has the intention to hold talks with the American side about it, as it is political sanctions, and is not based on any realistic evidence. Aliwi said in an interview with Al-Arabi Al-Jadeed that the Al-Kazemi government should complete this task by rejecting any kind of sanctions that affect any Iraqi figure who is not convicted by the local judiciary, and working to remove names from any American list. But one of the members of the negotiating delegation in the first dialogue session, which was held via a television circle last month between American and Iraqi officials, assured Al-Arabi Al-Jadeed that the files of the second session were not definitively determined, and they may be comprehensive due to Al-Kazemi’s presence in Washington and his supposed meetings with senior administration officials. American, but he made it clear that it is primarily about terrorism and strengthening Iraq’s security and military capabilities, the financial and health crises, electricity and strengthening the rule of law, fighting financial corruption and threatening armed groups linked to Iran, and the American military presence. And he considered that the file of Iraq’s commitment to the sanctions imposed on Iran, and on various personalities and parties inside and outside Iraq, would be within the political file that is under discussion with the prime minister.

  5. CNN. Broadcasting With The Keys - The exchange rate is one of the “keys” to the solution ! The Iraqi economy ... the predicament of the situation and the problem of the solution KARAR AL-ASADI SUN, 19-07-2020, PM 8:06 By: Dr. Imad Abdul Latif Salem The price of Brent "Al Mubarak" crude today 19-7-2020 .. is 43.10 dollars a barrel. And according to estimates of the average annual price of Brent crude, the price of selling our blessed oil is usually estimated in our blessed public budget for the blessed fiscal year 2020 ... which is the general budget that has continued in its blessed "voluntary" absence for nearly a year. The amount of public expenditures in this "absent" or "absent" budget is estimated at 100 trillion Iraqi dinars, or $ 80 billion (not blessed, of course). However, not all of Iraq’s blessed oil is light and blessed. Much of our oil is heavy, like us, and blessed. The average selling price of our blessed oil is 6 to 9 dollars per barrel. Therefore, the sale price of oil, estimated in the general budget for the fiscal year, will either range, or is supposed to range (as a personal estimate) between $ 26-30 per barrel. This means that the blessed budget deficit will increase .. and that our financial, economic, and social crises will worsen, especially with our disastrous failure to properly deal with the outbreak of the COVID 19 epidemic, and our inability to make a fair trade-off between the death of people “biologically” from the epidemic, and between their death “economically” "As a result of their suffering from worsening unemployment and high rates of poverty among the population. This means that the blessed austerity will increase, and the salaries of employees and retirees, and the livelihoods of those with limited incomes, not all blessed, will be the blessed victim of all of this. Total salaries of “workers’ compensation ”are estimated at 3.3 trillion dinars per month, while the salaries of retirees are estimated at 1.3 trillion dinars per month, or a total of 4.7 trillion dinars per month (56.4 trillion dinars annually). And if these "personal estimates" are logical, or close to the reality of the situation, then this means that the salaries of employees and retirees constitute 56.4% of the total allocations of the state budget for the fiscal year 2020, and this is the highest percentage, or "share" of salaries in the general budgets of countries , Among all the countries of the world. Also, as a personal estimate, the government (even if oil prices increase slightly at the end of this year), and even if it is able to continue to pay the salaries of July and August 2020, it may be unable to do so (or that it may face enormous difficulties in "a measure" That) in September 2020 .. and that the situation will become more difficult in the months that follow, unless a “party” provides an urgent “rescue” package, to avoid worse than the government's inability to pay the salaries of employees and retirees, in addition to securing sufficient funds to meet With its basic obligations. In the last statement reported by the media about him, the Minister of Finance says: “The approval of the federal general budget for 2020 is excluded” (to be the same in the case of the 2014 budget) .. And that the government is working on preparing for the next year’s budget 2021, where We need 7.5 trillion dinars per month for operating expenses, and we will continue to borrow from local banks to finance salaries and ruling expenses. "And the government may resort to external borrowing to address the financial crisis. It is assumed "economically" (and there are those who insist that no single economic law operates in a logical manner in Iraq) that the price of the US dollar rise against the Iraqi dinar, and that we be able to control the rhythm of that rise (if it occurs), so that it has direct and indirect positive effects ..And to avoid as much as possible its negative effects on the economy. The exchange rate is one of the “keys” to the solution, but the blessed central bank can still defend the blessed “current” dinar exchange rate, in light of all these blessed “rational” expectations ... and that will continue to happen and happen, until God decides (not The "employers of" politics and economics in this "afflicted" country) ... was done. Now, away from the "jurisprudence" and "personal estimates" of the data, we will urge an important, careful and accurate study, prepared by a group of beautiful Iraqi minds, working at the University of Kufa, and in the Central Bureau of Statistics, and issued in May 2020 by a center Al-Rafidain for Dialogue, which is entitled: "A case study: Poverty and living standards in Iraq in light of the repercussions of the Corona crisis" .. Among the most important contents of this study include the following *: In January 2020, crude oil export revenue was $ 6.163 billion, at a rate of $ 60,139 per barrel. In April 2020, crude oil export revenues decreased to only $ 1.423 billion, at a rate of $ 13.81 per barrel. - The volume of gross domestic product achieved in 2019 amounted to about 262.9 billion dollars ... Because of the dual effect resulting from the decrease in oil prices and the decrease in other economic activities due to the effects of "Corona", the volume of this GDP for 2020 may decrease (assuming an average price of oil The amount of $ 30 a barrel, according to the best scenarios, and the closest to logic), to be in the range of 169 trillion dinars only (about 142 billion dollars). This means that this double crisis could cause the GDP of 2020 compared to 2019 to decrease by 36%. The number of poor people in 2018 was estimated at 7.4 million, with a poverty rate of 20.5%. According to the 10% income or consumption scenario (which is the "basic case" scenario closest to reality in light of the current crisis), the poverty line in Iraq for 2020 was estimated at 123,200 thousand dinars / person / month. Hence, the poverty rate estimated according to this scenario is 22.8%, and the number of poor people is estimated at 9.120 million poor. All this is happening, and Iran's blessed agreement with the big, blessed countries about its blessed nuclear file is subjected to the blessed "tramp" strikes, so that the impact of the strikes on us will be reversed in politics, security, and the economy. And for those who ask his traditional question about the "solution" in this "case", there are many solutions that have been presented repeatedly to "decision makers" in this country ... and there are many plans, policies and strategies that have been approved (from the highest legislative and executive levels) And it was all left on the shelf, to be eaten by the dust of neglect, ignorance and forgetting .. Whether we agree or not with the current Minister of Finance, I personally do not think that he needs someone who is “to be seen” in this regard .. Also, he also does not need to sit with a group of Experts and consultants, together, to rediscover the wheel again, to put it under this decaying vehicle called "the Iraqi economy." What we need, and what it "benefits" is not more "theories" and "jurisprudence" of experts and advisors ... rather that we have supreme sovereign interests "holy", agreed upon by the political "parties" controlling this country, and defending them fiercely, And with unrelenting political will. What we need is that we are aware that we have no alternative to salvation from our complex economic crises, other than comprehensive and radical reform .. and that this reform has a cost .. and that this cost may be very prohibitive .. and we may continue to pay it for five, ten years Next .. We are the ones who do not tolerate delaying paying our salaries for only five days. This year 2020 never seems blessed, from its blessed start, until the very moment when it is supposed to be blessed now. Three presidencies blessed, Iraqis. Mubarak's House of Representatives. Blessed government. Blessed ministers. Mubarak government program. But ... with the prices of oil not blessed (externally) .. and with chaos, confusion, and lack of horizon (internally), a lot of things may be unfortunate now, Iraqis. Many things will not be okay ... neither in the short term nor in the medium term. In the long run, this may happen ... that is, some things may be on Mayram. However, many of us will be dead, and they will not be witnesses to that .. in that long term. So ... beautiful patience ... or beautiful desertion ... blessed Iraqis. LINK

  8. CNN. Broadcasting From An ‘Institution’ ! Institutional performance update Sunday 05 July 2020 Yasser Al-Metwally In the midst of the government's tendencies and within its plan for administrative reform to make possible changes to public administrations in state institutions and replace them with specialized technocrats that fall within the concept of modernizing institutional performance and address the imbalance that has caused the root of corruption and management chaos. Here we believe that the campaign to change public administrations, especially the failed ones, is not sufficient to achieve improved performance or its modernization. Rather, three essential elements are required which are among the requirements for modernization, namely the modernization of the regulatory and legislative environment, qualification of human resources, and improvement of the work environment. When that is possible, we can achieve the required administrative reform, and here the performance of the middle staff must be updated according to the position of the right man in the right place. Focus on important links for any institution, especially in the financial, accounting and legal aspects, and check their information by conducting training and qualification courses and subjecting them to professional tests related to their specializations in coordination with universities, colleges and expert homes, in addition to this, speeding up the modernization of the legislative environment in a way that does not act according to the mood of the departments using the appropriate legislation in view Many laws intersect before and after change and exploit it for personal interests. The third condition is to provide a clean work environment based on respect for time, good behavior and love of the profession. There are those who believe that these procedures need time. We say yes and it is, but they are among the basics for achieving institutional performance modernization and proper reform. We need to establish the content and objectives of governance; Which means good management, and this program can be achieved through the proposed qualification courses. Here it must be noted that the world's rapid trends towards the digital economy and management governance that require interaction with the digital transformation through the adoption of electronic transactions and the abolition of paper handling and record keeping will be a new challenge for new departments. It is necessary to pay attention to the fact that this digital transformation will reflect on the volume of employment in state institutions with a negative impact compared to the suspicious unemployment rates that the country suffers from and which escalate directly with the size of universities expansion and the acceptance of all middle school graduates without regard to the rate. Add to this unemployment resulting from the use of e-management . Here, those who tackle institutional modernization must realize that dependence on the private sector is inevitable to absorb the largest proportion of the unemployed. And perhaps whoever says that this approach is within the responsibility of the sovereign decision-makers, we say yes definitely and my reference only to remind that all public administrations were against this role of the private sector and also hinder its implementation, so I said the new departments should realize this fact to be encouraging, supportive and not hindering the role of the private sector In the future, it is true that this opinion came hastily and crammed into this column, but I preferred to raise it in advance so that the administrations would not be surprised by what matters will lead to in the alphabet of administrative reform in the era of digital development. We return to this topic in later columns. link

The parliamentary finance decision talks about a threat to the central bank's foreign currency reserves Economie 06/20/2020 19:04 421 Baghdad today - Baghdad A member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, Ahmed Al-Saffar, said today, Monday, that the Central Bank of Iraq succeeded in light of the global crisis caused by the collapse of oil prices, while stressing that the window to sell the dollar currently poses a risk to the bank's reserves. Ahmed Al-Saffar said, in an interview with (Baghdad Today), that "the value of what is sold from the dollar within the window of the Central Bank of Iraq is much greater than the proceeds from the sale of crude oil, given that the latter constitutes the most important source of hard currency in the country, and therefore the window already affects the cash reserve Although this money goes on the basis of supporting importers according to the official papers provided by banks that participate in the currency auction. " Al-Saffar added, "With a calculation between what is sold from the dollar through the currency, and what is returned by selling the dollar, it reveals a big difference that actually affects the cash reserve, but the latter, according to his policy, tries to maintain the dollar exchange rate against the Iraqi dinar, because any reduction It will lead to an increase in the value of the dollar and a reduction of the dinar, and consequently an increase in prices. He is trying to strike a balance between the value of the dinar and the reserve. " A member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee confirmed that "the central bank is an independent institution, and it is not possible to interfere in its monetary policy, and it succeeded in the last period because it maintained the rate of inflation and the exchange rate of the dollar after the collapse of global oil prices and their accompanying repercussions in the health crisis." He pointed out that "the situation of Iraq is better than the neighboring countries, some of which collapsed in currencies," noting that "the central bank policy is particularly good and made sure that people with limited incomes and those with daily wages are not affected by inflation or high prices in the markets." Earlier, a member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, Muhammad Sahib al-Darraji, published a tweet in which he stated that “one day, the currency window sells $ 207 million and the average daily oil sales are $ 60 million (according to the price of $ 40 quality discount $ 6 + production cost $ 9) export rate 2.4 Million barrels).

Al-Waeli said in a press statement, "There are many alternatives that can mitigate the severity of the current crisis significantly, including an increase in the price of a barrel of oil, which is sold by $ 5 to the refineries of the Ministry of Oil, while the rate of selling it according to the 2019 budget is 60 Dollars. " And between, "Those refineries buy about one million barrels per day; that is, there is a difference in the price of up to 55 dollars, meaning that there is a price difference of 55 million dollars," noting that the treasury can supply about 50 percent of this amount, i.e. up to 20 25 million dollars. " He added, "The other alternative is to reconsider the sums of real estate sold cheaply and rented with sums, especially those that are located in the heart of the capital and in distinct areas of it, as it can be re-evaluated again because some of them are inhabited without paying any sums for the rents in the first place." He pointed out that "the government should also pay attention to the debts arising from telecommunications companies, especially mobile phones and the Internet, and their collection, which amounts to millions of dollars." Al-Waeli warned, "The amounts owed by the border crossing points, customs and taxes after being properly and clearly monitored, as well as transport companies, despite the existence of a crisis in that at the present time, all of which can be invested to alleviate the economic crisis caused by the drop in oil prices." He explained, "The executive bodies should take great care in the issue of the agricultural calendar and protect the product, by preventing the entry of unnecessary agricultural crops available in the local market, or imposing customs prices on the importer from them to equate with their local counterparts as they are cheaper than what exists in the Iraqi market, which leads Consequently, to revitalize the agricultural sector, especially in conditions of curfew, by paying attention to the agricultural lands owned by some citizens and whose crops are sufficient for consumption by them, their families, and their neighbors. He pointed out that "the committee has also proposed to raise the customs tariff for raw raw materials, after the Iraqi industrialists were harmed by them and those who import the raw material, to show then that their prices are more than the price of the ready-made imported material, which leads to the closure of the factory and the layoff of workers, while imposing a tariff On imported materials, he will make them in competition with the local product, "noting" the necessity of encouraging the national product and making a price difference between it and the importer. " He continued, saying: "It is possible to raise the exchange rate of the dinar against the dollar, even if only in a small percentage that corresponds to the vision of the central bank, after deliberating between it and the financial committee on this issue, despite the first refusal of the matter as a financial policy, but the committee is trying to hold the stick from the middle and the possibility of implementing this matter even a few numbers and gradually maintain the value of the Iraqi dinar against the dollar " .

Al-Tamimi said that "the currency auction goes in the first quarter for the pockets of some corrupt employees, while the second quarter is seized by parties, and the third is in the hands of merchants, and the fourth and last quarter goes to terrorism." With indicated that "the financing of terrorism was through a currency auction managed by the Central Bank of Iraq." The speech of MP Majida Al-Tamimi in Al-Sharqiya channel, which is seen by millions of people, was not surprising, and the evidence is a lot of security experts and strategists say that corruption supports terrorism) and the currency auction in the Central Bank of Iraq is not free of corruption. Attribution and financing of terrorism. What do we say to the Central Bank of Iraq’s management of this fact and accepted the scandal with corruption and looting of people's money through prepaid companies, smart card. And she indicated that "the financing of terrorism was through the auction of selling currency." Where are the oversight bodies, especially the Iraqi judiciary, the public prosecutor, the Integrity Commission, the media, public opinion, and civil society organizations. What do we say to the countries of the world and the most important monetary institution in the country that supports terrorism systematically. There are several clues, including dozens of private banks that live on the auction of selling currency and do not provide any other services to the Iraqi citizen, not even the granting of small loans, support for projects for job seekers, mere smuggling and money laundering, and support for corrupt political parties that have plagued the Iraqi people. Why does the Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq cling to this important and sensitive position in the Iraqi state? Why not be surprised how lost $ 500 billion in Iraq? , This is an important part of the truth, as the Iraqi Center for Legal Development ICLD revealed seventeen suspicions of corruption in the work of the Central Bank of Iraq over the past years, demanding the Iraqi judiciary to verify the banks affiliated with political parties or supported by them. The Center for Iraq for Legal Development says: The number of Iraqi banks exceeds the number of banks in Britain, the Emirates, Jordan and Lebanon combined. The center said in its previous report submitted to the Supreme Council for Anti-Corruption, that “previous investigations were not carried out in an integrated manner, which caused keeping this door before whales and the mafia of corruption open in an impact Negatively on the Iraqi economy. We do not know what these mockery and this immune corruption is in Iraq. The authority is plundering the citizen, the investor, the rich and the poor, no reconstruction, no development, or a fair distribution of wealth! The report indicated that “previous investigations have focused on the validity of the bills issued by banks and companies in terms of formality only, indicating” the necessity of ascertaining to the official authorities about the fact that goods and goods are imported with amounts equal to the amounts of remittances and in the event that this is proven, a complex crime of forgery, fraud, smuggling of funds and damage will be proven Iraqi economy. The report referred to “failure to verify the international banks to which the amounts of the alleged transfers were transferred, and to inquire about the fact that the relevant authorities have received them or transferred again in favor of other accounts, whether in the same bank or other banks, and here the crime of smuggling the currency will be proven in a certain and real way. The report pointed out that "the central bank administration has nearly doubled the number of banks in Iraq without a feasibility study to exceed the number of Iraqi banks in the number of banks in Britain, the Emirates, Jordan and Lebanon combined, which opened the door to corruption and new waste, which is buying and selling establishment licenses." link
  21. CNN. Broadcasting The Logic That it is possible to talk about raising the price of the currency Revaluation ! Conscious / reduce the Iraqi dinar exchange rate ... punish people / d. Hussein al-Asadi June 3, 2020 Iraq is going through extremely sensitive conditions, as the Iraqi economy faces a real challenge after the catastrophic failure to find alternatives to selling crude oil. I confirm here the sale of crude oil and not the oil refining industry and the petrochemical industry. Iraq is one of the largest oil reserves in the world, as it has 147.2 billion Barrel according to explorations in 2018, or 8.5% of the balance's global reserves - - and yet he annually imports 3.3 trillion Iraqi dinars in oil products - the annual report of importing Iraq 2018, the Central Statistical Organization 2019 - and he imports energy worth 7 trillion Iraqi dinars - the 2019 budget Iraqi facts: Issue 4529 on 11/11/2019 - all of which can be produced in Iraq, as well as other resources such as agriculture, various industries, trade, tourism, etc., With no Sovereign Wealth Fund that provides additional imports and a portfolio to protect the future of generations, especially in times of crisis, Iraq today Asking for aid to pay the salaries of employees and retirees is that what enters the treasury is not equal to a quarter of what Iraq needs to cover salaries only. The financial budget for the year 2019 was allocated to the salaries of retired civilians and the military (9,316,652,417,000) Iraqi dinars, and the salaries of employees equal (43,404,629,267,000) Iraqi dinars For the year 2019, the amount is (52,721,281,684,000) Iraqi dinars, which means that Iraq needs monthly (4,393,440,140,000) Iraqi dinars, and if we take into consideration that the Iraqi dinar exchange is 1,200 dinars per dollar, it means that Iraq needs monthly to (3,660,000,000) approximately one dollar, while the GDP of Iraq is approximately (1,100,000,000) dollars for the month of March and (1,200,000,000) dollars approximately for the coming months, as Iraq needs (2.5) billion dollars approximately per month to cover monthly salary expenses only, this is regardless of other needs, And to address This catastrophic failure began to raise some voices in order to reduce the Iraqi dinar exchange rate against the US dollar in order to increase the budget number and reduce the deficit in it, and I find it necessary to clarify some of the terms, so the reader may be surprised by the ignorance of many of those who speak in this field, and perhaps they are among those in important positions of responsibility. Floating Exchange Rate: A floating currency is the rate of currency that has floated so that it has become fully liberalized, so the government or the central bank does not interfere in determining it directly, but it is automatically generated in the currency market through the Supply And Demand mechanism that allows By setting the exchange rate of the national currency against foreign currencies, this term corresponds to the fixed price of the currency exchange Fixed Exchange Rate: A specific price will be set against a major global currency (usually the US dollar, but also other major currencies such as the euro, yen, or basket of currencies), in order to maintain On the local exchange rate, the central bank buys and sells its own currency on the foreign exchange market for the currency in which it is linked. Devaluation: is the devaluation of the official exchange rate of this currency against an international reference currency (the US dollar or the euro, for example), so that the number of units of foreign currency that can be obtained against one unit of the national currency is low, and it is correct to talk about devaluation when it is The exchange rate is subject to the direct management of the government or the central bank, which determines this price through a government decision, and according to the same logic, it is possible to talk about raising the price of the currency Revaluation in exchange for reducing it, and this is when the exchange rate is subject to the direct management of the government or the central bank as well, and we note that the reduction The price of the currency and its elevation are within one framework which is the fixed exchange of the currency, but when the exchange rate is subject to the forces of supply and demand (floating the currency) and there is a decline in the value of this currency, depreciation of the currency, the decline is an automatic result of the free interaction between supply and demand in the foreign exchange market without interference Direct from the government or the central bank,according to For the same logic, we can talk about the rise in the value of the currency Appreciation versus its decline, and we note that the rise and fall of the currency price within the currency float. Since Iraq works within the fixed fixed rate system, we can talk about reducing and raising the exchange rate of the currency, and here I do not want to differentiate between the two systems, each of them has its conditions despite the market economy and its idea that the state should not interfere in economic activities and let the market control itself It operates a system of floating the currency and its price depends on the iron principle of supply and demand, but the actual conditions of Iraq do not allow for reasons that are too long to be explained. Countries with a fixed exchange rate resort to reducing the currency exchange rate for economic reasons to improve their balance of trade mainly due to an increase in domestic production versus the importer. The currency reduction makes the difference between the outside and the inside and reduces the importer in front of the exporter, and this assumes that there is internal production It covers the local need and wants to preserve it and export it abroad, but in the Iraqi case, unfortunately, there is no industry, no agriculture, no internal production, it covers the local need as well as being an exporter, as Iraq has nothing to export other than Crude Oil, and I speak here As for the reality of what is there and not what I am calling for, the total imports for the year 2018 for commodities and petroleum products amounted to (37) billion dollars, equivalent to (43.8) trillion Iraqi dinars, and the total imports for the year 2018 for the non-oil commodities (34.1 dollars), i.e. Equivalent (40.5) One trillion Iraqi dinars, and Iraq has no need to reduce the exchange rate, but it is sufficient for it to prevent the import of any material that can be dispensed with. As for the real effect of the devaluation, it is the direct punishment for the Iraqi people, if we know that 6 million Iraqis receive a salary or aid from the Iraqi government and the number of individuals The Iraqi family is 5 people, we are talking about about 30 million Iraqis who live on what they receive from salaries or aid from the Iraqi government, all of these will be affected by this procedure, because inflation occurs. Inflation in prices is due to the low purchasing power of the Iraqi dinar, so the family that could have lived in a million dinars An Iraqi after the currency devaluation has become worth 500 thousand dinars, and if she receives a number that is a million, therefore she will live in great distress due to this reduction, and the other affected are the owners of internal debts in the local currency, which amount to about 40 trillion dinars, which represent treasury transfers and debits with banks The government and the central bank for companies, contractors, and merchants, and if they are a number, it will remain that the Iraqi government owes them to 40 trillion, but after the devaluation they will owe 20 trillion on the assumption that it has been cut in half. As for the external debtor, it remains the same because in foreign currency the dollar or the like. Another issue remains here is the confidence of investors and companies in the currency after the devaluation is much less because the stability of the currency is one of the factors that encourage investment and entry in projects as well as problems related to economic feasibility after the devaluation, which is the basis of the intervention of the government or the central bank in fixing the exchange rate or only for work The principle of floating currency from the beginning.
