The Central Bank begins implementing steps to reform the banking sector

 

Today, Monday, the Central Bank of Iraq began implementing its first reform steps for the banking sector, as it finished classifying private commercial and Islamic banks operating in Iraq according to a set of international standards as well as a number of standards approved by this bank.

 This step comes within the framework of enhancing confidence in the banking sector, improving the quality of services provided to the public, as well as enhancing competitiveness in the Iraqi banking sector.
This bank confirms that it has previously asked the lagging banks more than once to work on correcting their situation and paying their customers' dues, and therefore this classification will be an opportunity for those banks to prove their seriousness in achieving the requirements of reform and pay the dues of depositors and shareholders.

Finally, we announce that the next stage will include the process of "reforming government banks as well," noting that the reform measures that have been adopted depend mainly on the Central Bank Law No. 56 of 2004 and the Iraqi Banking Law No. 94 of 2004 and the instructions and controls issued in accordance with them.

Must be a good thing. I say this because a leader from "The State of Law" doesn't

like it and says it's upside down. This is Maliki's party. Stands to reason if the biggest

thief in the country is against it,then maybe there is true reform on the way...

Baghdad / Al-Akhbariya

Former Deputy Prime Minister Bahaa Al-Araji affirmed that reforms to stop currency smuggling have closed the door to commissions for some personalities.

Al-Araji said in a tweet on Twitter, "The recent reforms of the Central Bank are the practical step to stop currency smuggling. We hope to work on other steps that make the banking sector supportive of the state's economy and not a burden on it."

He added, "As for the objections of some personalities, they are a reaction as a result of compromising their personal interests after closing the door of the commissions they were getting!"
