Parliamentary Finance issues a package of reforms that includes imposing a value-added tax and reviewing the dollar exchange rate

Recommended Posts

To issue an electronic dinar for reviewing the exchange rate and deleting zeros? Hmm this is interesting. So does it mean that firstly, they change the rate ( rv ), then after that delete the zeros ( rd )? But i am still confused how does the electronic dinar work?. Does " electronic dinar " means " e-rv " ( like someone mentions e-rv in the other article) ?
