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). " 

And he added: "So the difference between the dollar entering the country and abroad to import 147 million dollars! In one day, and if it continues, it means 53 billion a year! Why?"

Fiscal policy in Iraq between debt and reform


- 3 Minutes Past
 

%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%B9%D8%B1%D8%A7%D9%82-%D9

 

Researcher Shatha Khalil *


Although the new government was able to secure the salaries of employees, the financial problem remains essential in the Iraqi economy, and its viability and sustainability in light of the fluctuations in international oil prices that cause the financial deficit of the Iraqi budget, which mainly depends on oil revenues, and the high volume Public debt, as well as risks arising from unfair budget distribution; Based on the political agreements in distributing public expenditures to the governorates and the region, as well as the low allocations of the investment budget, as well as the deterioration of public sector companies and their transformation from profitable producing companies into losing companies.

The decrease in the public financial ability to achieve efficiency in spending is due to the influence of the political side in the public budget, as well as the failure to follow the criteria for efficiency in spending, and the dependence of the Iraqi economy on oil revenues by more than a barrier (88%); Which exposes him to financial shocks and high public debt, and thus financial insecurity.

Looking at all budgets after (2003), it is noted that fiscal policy is not based on macroeconomic development, but rather in a large part of it directs resources to the operational side of the general budget.

Likewise, the lack of institutional harmony and the escalation of the specter of quotas, in addition to the security threats that the country is constantly passing through. Reflecting on the social side, many of the problems, especially those related to citizens in general, included the spread of alien ideas on society, with cases of moral corruption, family disintegration and other social problems expanding.

As for the economic problems, they include many obstacles that are in private contact with the citizen, as the prevalence of poverty and corruption in government departments, in addition to unemployment and disguised unemployment in most government departments and many problems in government administration.

These problems are interconnected in a direct way with other problems, as political problems are a root of the roots of economic problems and the last are the basis for social problems. This means that increasing economic problems leads to increasing other problems and vice versa.

This makes the solution to these problems a real crisis facing the political administration in the first place because it has the decision in that, in addition to the great necessity of specialized scientific consultations for each problem separately.

Iraq incurred heavy financial losses due to the deterioration of oil prices resulting from the Corona epidemic, as Iraq prepared for the year 2020 budget deficit of 50 trillion dinars, equivalent to 42 billion dollars. This account was based on a price of $ 54 a barrel of oil.

But the shock of the epidemic and the differences between OPEC + members led to a sharp drop in the price of crude, which reached at the end of March to $ 23, showing the vast difference between the low price that reached the oil mechanism and the approved price in the budget of $ 34. As Iraq's exports are 3.8 million b / d, the daily loss will reach $ 129 million.

It is a huge loss because oil revenues represent 89% of general budget revenues and 99% of total export earnings, and the draft budget was recently amended, so the approved price became $ 30 a barrel. But this measure will not address the serious consequences of the financial crisis.

The high public debt, according to officials and specialists, has exacerbated public debts amounting to $ 125 billion, equivalent to 56% of GDP. Even the external debt will not be easy due to the Corona global crisis, and the credit rating of Iraq is very weak. He obtained a "negative B" score by Fitch and Standard and Powers, and most importantly the loss of confidence in economic policy. Experience has shown that the funds granted after the elimination of ISIS were not used in an acceptable manner in the reconstruction.

Here we come to important facts that must be placed within the plans of the state and to benefit from crises and the lessons we draw from to correct the path of economic reform in Iraq:

كور The Corona pandemic has proven beyond any doubt that countries that depend on importing food, medicine and health equipment are suffering from a serious crisis, especially if their financial viability is limited. The risk increases as this dependence increases. And dependence on exports that finance imports on a single substance, such as oil, whose price has rapidly deteriorated. And Iraq is at the forefront of the countries that meet these specifications.

• To address the current financial crisis, the Iraqi government must follow various steps, including: encouraging local agricultural and industrial investment, and providing various forms of support for this production through more public spending on scientific research and technological development, focus on all sectors and consider them complementary to each other and important for a strong state .
• Giving a large role and encouraging the agricultural sector and considering it one of the most important sectors and restoring life to Iraqi agriculture by adopting the project (who plantes owning the land) and this means whoever wants land should strive to obtain it and organize that by a specific law that guarantees non-exploitation and criminalizes its distribution to residential provinces.
 Setting new investment decisions that help investors to work even if the interest is low in the first place, but it will recover if this investment succeeds in a specific region or province, for example, we may lose the land, but we gain 5,000 jobs in almost every new project to eliminate unemployment and employ the workforce In order to eliminate or at least start reducing the level of poverty in Iraq because it has become a dangerous level.

On the other hand, so that the state can surround the problem well and treat each problem mainly from the political side, drawing the public policy based on the principles of real extrapolation to the problem is what avoids us falling into unrealistic or unrealistic treatments, and from these steps through which it can address The financial crisis, adopting an economic policy for the Iraqi state that depends on the fundamentals of capitalist work, where the problems that arise show that there is a lack of coherence or harmony between the democratic political system and the socialist economic system. Al-Aini for Money This makes the liquidity in banks continuously while adopting awareness programs for citizens on saving.

And giving great importance to the private sector and placing it within a legal framework, in order to guarantee its employees after-service rights, and this reduces government burdens significantly, especially in the matter of appointments, as 80% of those requesting employment aspire to obtain pension benefits that guarantee their lives.

The most important is coordination between the two sectors (public and private) in the law for the employment of government workers in private companies and deduction of their salaries from the company, for example, workers of military manufacturing companies or companies that are suspended from work, such as iron and steel company workers, while ensuring that they are not exploited by companies by a specific legal protocol.

We reach an important conclusion, which is the necessity of reforming the financial policy so that it gives special importance to the health, educational, social and other services sectors, as well as to local industrial and agricultural productive activities.

Setting plans that adopt a policy of economic spending in important fields that transform this policy, the ability to respond to health crises and without addressing urgent financial problems, and it has become necessary to make fundamental adjustments to them by reducing military and security spending, and making the regular army sufficient and strengthening it, and totally dispensing with the endowment bodies of all religions and sects and limiting their tasks. However, the state is minimalistic.

And poverty, which has become a dangerous level, must be addressed, as it constitutes a third of the Iraqi population. These ordeals can only be taken advantage of after all the obstacles of state administration are eliminated so that the country can rebalance again.

create 1 million jobs

29th June, 2020

 

Economist Haider Faraj confirmed today, Monday, that in the event that the government controls border crossings, it will provide more than a million job opportunities in the sectors of agriculture, industry and administration, pointing out that the cause of chaos and the non-discharge of local products is due to the entry of goods from outside the country without fundamental approval or collection As a customs office.


Faraj told Al-Ikhbaria, "We need to announce a national mobilization to control the corruption of border crossings throughout Iraq and to re-impose state prestige on all ports without exception."

He added that "within a year of controlling the border outlets, there will be a million job opportunities in the industrial and agricultural sectors, as well as in the management sector."

Faraj pointed out that "the imported product comes at 60% less than its price in Iraq in order to destroy the country to pass regional agendas from certain countries and pass their plans to support terrorism." He explained that "75% of the goods enter Iraq from abroad without any formal or official approval or examination, or even a customs tax, which led to dumping markets and the Iraqi product not recovering."

It is noteworthy that Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi had promised in the past few days to launch a campaign that he said is very close to controlling all the official border outlets for Iraq, and there are 13 outlets, including the Kurdistan region of Iraq.

Parliamentary finance shows the reason for delaying the payment of salaries for the month of June

%D8%AC%D9%85%D8%A7%D9%84-%D9%83%D9%88%D8
 
 
14:30 - 29/06/2020

The Parliamentary Finance Committee attributed, on Monday, the delay in the disbursement of employee salaries and grants for the month of June to the absence of cash liquidity, explaining that the reason for this is due to the failure of the amount borrowed from local banks to the state treasury recently approved by Parliament.

Member of the Committee, MP Jamal Cougar, said in a statement to "Information", that "the delay in the process of disbursing salaries and grants for the month of June is due to the absence of cash at the public treasury."

He added that "the main reason for the delay in salaries is the delay in receiving financial loans from local banks that the government allowed the government to borrow on paying salaries", stressing that "the coming days will be the salaries paid to those who are entitled to them."

Cougar pointed out that "the amounts of internal loans will suffice to pay salaries between four and five months and the government must urgently undertake financial reforms to avoid dumping the state treasury with internal or external debts."

Specialists warn of the repercussions of the devaluation of the dinar

 

Tuesday, June 30, 2020

Baghdad / Hussein Thugb 
 

 Mustafa Al Hashemi
 

At a time when reports have spoken that the government is considering reducing the value of the dinar against foreign currencies, as measures to confront the financial crisis caused by the decline in oil prices and the repercussions of (corona), a group of specialists in economic affairs confirmed that the reduction of the dinar price against the dollar is not based on objective grounds and cannot Its approval of the resulting damage to the Iraqi economy, the purchasing power of the citizenry, the strength of Iraqi bonds abroad and the country's credit rating.

The economist reported Dr. Fadel Muhammad Jawad said that "the central bank has a direct relationship to the issue, as it is the financial and monetary adviser to the government, and therefore cannot be excluded from the process."

He added that "the Iraqi-Jordanian Business Council (the owner of the proposal to reduce the value of the Iraqi dinar) - according to Jawad - will not be affected by the decline as it is affected by the citizen who lives inside Iraq, as he bears the results more than he who lives outside and deals in dollars and foreign currencies, not in the Iraqi dinar."

Jawad called "the central bank and Iraqi economists inside the country to clarify their opinion on this sensitive issue that concerns the country and the citizen."

For his part, the economic advisor to the Speaker of Parliament, Dr. Hammam Al-Shamaa, “The advocates of reducing the dinar’s exchange rate are not unaware of its inflationary effects, and the resulting social tensions will deepen the misallocation of income.” From selling foreign currencies when the exchange rate is lowered. "

"They promise the government to increase an additional 60 billion dinars, and a total of 18 trillion dinars annually if the proposal is implemented, but they have forgotten that the cost of establishing a robust and strong social protection network for five million Iraqis without the poverty line, compensating 73 percent of retirees whose monthly income is less than 500 thousand dinars, and compensation for a million and a half million employees whose monthly income is less than 500 thousand dinars, will generate huge numbers of those who receive support because of this procedure, and whose value may reach the value of the amounts deposited due to the reduction.

He noted that "the social protection network will be an ongoing case, as in the ration card program, which is 32 years old and no one dares to cancel it until now."

Al-Shamaa stated that “the advocates of the reduction forgot the experience of printing and converting paper into a currency in the 1990s and how this printing weakened the purchasing power of the middle class,which turned into destitute had it not been for the adoption of the ration card program at the time”, pointing out that “reducing the dinar exchange rate is a process Quite similar to the printing of banknotes, in the end it means that the government wastes part of the purchasing power of people with fixed income and is ultimately an innovative way to deduct a portion of the employees ’salaries by 60 billion dinars per day, initially, as price relations soon create an upward inflation that falls on the poor.” .

Al-Shamaa felt that "the advocates of the reduction are the beneficiaries to promote their local products, whether agricultural or industrial, and this is legitimate and we call for administrative and customs measures to reduce competition from the local product and not by reducing the exchange rate of the dinar."

He pointed out that "the monetary policy drawn up and implemented by the central bank, whether in Iraq or in any country in the world is a policy independent of the will of the executive authority, without this implying the absence of coordination between the fiscal and monetary policies."

And that "the exchange policy and its system is one of the most important pillars of monetary policy, and therefore the statement that the central has nothing to do with the exchange system indicates the lack of awareness of economic facts, just as saying that money is government money is a fallacy because the government and the monetary authority and the legislative and judicial authority are the components of the state Whose cornerstone is the people. "

For his part, the economic researcher d. Ahmed Al-Husseini said, "It is not appropriate now to carry out a currency devaluation, especially since thinking about this measure coincides with the state of the global economic recession and the recession in the local economy."

He explained that "devaluation of the currency in order to finance the fiscal deficit in the budget will have unforeseeable economic effects, especially the rise in the general level of prices due to increased inflation," noting that "the economy currently cannot tolerate such effects, as well as the effects of economic dumping on the market With goods that may be of poor quality due to the lack of a customs deterrent that might prevent this from being achieved, stressing, "The devaluation should not be the first line of confrontation for the financial crisis caused by the drop in oil prices and the effects of (corona)."

%D8%B1%D9%88%D8%A7%D8%AA%D8%A8-2-696x437
 

Information / Baghdad

 

Member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee MP Ahmad Al-Saffar confirmed on Monday that the amount of money hoarded in homes amounts to 30% of the liquidity in Iraq .

Al-Saffar said in an interview with "The Information", that "the amount of money hoarded in homes and individuals in Iraq amounts to in my view more than 30% of liquidity and this is a big mistake because monetary policy depends on the movement of money and the amount of circulation."

Al-Saffar added, “Many reasons pushed citizens and individuals to hoard funds away from banks, but it is a bad thing, and it must be reconsidered, cultivated confidence, and eased the procedures, which gives ease in placing money in banks or withdrawing them.”

Iraq has been suffering from a stifling financial crisis for months due to the collapse of crude oil prices and the repercussions of the Corona virus and its economic effects on most of the countries of the world.

Yassin Iraq: Baghdad
 

Today, Monday, the Parliamentary Committee on Economy and Investment criticized Iraq for importing fuel from abroad while selling oil at a very low price.

Member of the Parliamentary Committee, Nada Shaker, said in a press statement that "the lack of an economic vision for the Iraqi government to provide the necessary resources and revenues that supply the budget with money, led to the import of fuel at high prices compared to the price of selling oil in the global market."

And, "Shaker" added, "The government's lack of control over the economic resources raised the wrath of the Iraqi people, especially with regard to the border outlets and other productive sectors, and did not take action with the region to force it to hand over its funds to the center."

And she continued, "The government pays millions of dollars to buy gasoline, while it sells oil at a very low price and this is very defective and indicates the lack of strategic economic planning for it.

And she stressed "the necessity of relying on a deliberate economic policy and attracting expertise and competencies to amend the path of economic plans pursued by the government and its dimensions from the policy and internal and external interventions."

People - Baghdad 

 

On Tuesday, Deputy Muhammad Shia'a Al-Sudani presented a set of "solutions" that he said would remove the Iraqi government from the current crisis and secure financial obligations for employees, retirees and social welfare, as well as providing the benefits of the crisis cell against Corona.  

The Sudanese Media Office said in a statement, "People" received a copy of it, (30 June 2020), that "in light of the challenges facing the country, the government has a number of urgent measures in place to enable it to fulfill its obligations, specifically in front of employees, retirees, social welfare, treatment of the ration card and benefits." Crisis Cell regarding confronting Corona Virus. "  

The Sudanese confirmed, according to the statement, that "the important part of the economic reforms is to collect customs tariff fees and protect the product while controlling the window of currency sales from the central bank in which the sale reached large numbers, including 240 million dollars sold in one day," asking: "For whom This money was directed? What imports could come to Iraq in light of the economic downturn that the entire region is going through? Without withholding fees and taxes. "  

Al-Sudani pointed out that "there is another economic perspective, which we made sure that the agricultural and industrial private sector did not rise in light of the import of imports from official and unofficial outlets and in the absence of complete control over the ports and the absence of standardization and quality control of the goods entering and in the absence of taxes and fees being met from them Certainly, the prices of imported goods and products will crowd out the national product, and all of this needs reform steps to maximize revenue. "  

He noted that "the oil derivatives and the extracted crude oil that is given to the distribution companies and refineries ends with the oil derivatives provides large amounts of money that were going to the Ministry of Oil whether to distribute profits to employees or to carry out projects of social benefit; therefore, in light of the current financial conditions, you should invest This money, which amounts to 8 trillion dinars, in the event of controlling oil revenues by setting the rate of 10% of the cost of extraction and $ 8 for liquidation and within the limits of 5% for distribution with the granting of hooves, there are 8 trillion dinars that can be saved from the revenues of oil derivatives without raising the price of oil products to the citizen These are available revenues that were not directed to the citizen, and it can provide quick revenues in addition to reducing the salaries of the three presidencies from ministers and representatives and special degrees and stopping the disbursement of allocations granted outside the laws. "  

He continued, "There are judicial orders against mobile phone companies, Asia Cell, Atheer, and Korek to pay what is up to a trillion dinars, and it is assumed that these measures are implemented to collect these funds, not to mention the existence of state-controlled real estate from political parties that the government is supposed to take quick decisions against by examining the amounts of their leasing amounts. Or selling it at the prevailing market price and this increases the state’s treasury imports, ”pointing out that there is a“ required procedure which is controlling the financial balances of the state’s departments and not releasing any amount except in accordance with the recent directions of the government regarding the rationalization of spending. ”  

According to Al-Sudani, there is "importance to push towards effective and real steps on encouraging the agricultural and industrial sectors by placing the import curriculum at the table of government producers from companies of the Ministry of Industry as well as private and mixed sector companies and identifying the goods that can be produced so that the government can issue a decision to prevent their import as well as review the calendar Agricultural activities to ensure the preservation of local agricultural products and spare farmers the damage and close the ports and control them completely.

He explained that "internal borrowing will secure the salaries of employees. As for external borrowing, which is set at $ 5 billion, it must be invested to complete development projects, including investment projects for burned gas and the development of the Basra gas project with the Shell Company, which contributes to providing what the power stations need instead of buying Iranian gas in amounts that exhaust the budget. Other imports to the budget, and there are projects related to petrochemicals and fertilizers that can bring large sums of money to the state’s treasury not to mention its benefits to society by pushing the wheel of economic development, stressing that “directing loans to these projects will put the reform process in the proper direction.”
