After the central bank was hit by a surprise .. Iraq may move to change the dollar exchange rate


Recommended Posts

“As soon as the devaluation of the dinar against the foreign currency, especially the US dollar, came into effect, the people's willingness to buy those currencies decreased, which created alarm for the Central Bank of Iraq, which is responsible for issuing the decision that sparked popular discontent, because of the consequences it may have on the middle class and people Limited income in society”


“For the third consecutive day of this week, central bank sales decreased by more than 55%.”

 

 "The decline of the Iraqi dinar against the US dollar and the increase of the exchange rate from 119 thousand to 146 thousand dinars per 100 dollars caused a rapid decrease in the value of sales at the Central Bank in the foreign currency auction."

 

“The central bank is upset”

 

   "The Iraqis do not have any confidence in the banking institution, so they put their money in their homes, and when the dollar crisis became they went to sales outlets and sold dollars, so the demand for the dollar became little compared to the previous period."

 

Looks like CBI is not happy with the outcome. 
 

The Iraqi citizens instead of buying dollars to protect their savings from a 22% devaluation, decided to sell the dollar and kept their dinars.!


In my opinion, no one in their right mind would do something like that.

Unless they are in the know of a future revaluation of the IQD.

 

Go RV

Go $1:1

Go 2021

 

PS: Chunky money is not easy to get... CBI 😂

 


 

 

I’m sure the Iraqi’s are very aware of the true value of their currency brother, we wait and see, just as they are 😉

Deputy talks about a next step to change the current exchange rate for the dollar:
 

Baghdad / National News Center -
MP Hussein Arab spoke about the possibility of changing the current dollar exchange rate, while noting that the decision to change it is in the hands of the Ministry of Finance.

Arabs said in a televised interview, "We have not discussed the government yet in the parliament about the basis on which the new exchange rate was built," adding that "raising the exchange rate to 1450 dinars against the dollar is surprising because oil prices are on the rise and it is possible to reduce the size of the financial deficit and thus not." We should go towards changing the exchange rate under the pretext of reducing the deficit.

With regard to the trend in covering government expenditures, the MP saw that "raising the exchange rate solves a small part of the deficit problem, and there are alternatives and other better solutions," adding, "We believe that the exchange rate will change once the 2021 budget is discussed in Parliament."

He continued, "I tell the Minister of Finance that raising the exchange rate of the dollar is illogical, and will cause the market to collapse. What you did will not be merciful to you by history," he said.

Arab confirmed that "the Ministry of Finance is the one who determines the exchange rate, and the Central Bank has nothing to do with that," noting that "all MPs agree not to allow prejudice to the salaries of employees."

The Minister of Finance, Ali Allawi, said Monday 21-12-2020 that changing the exchange rate of the dinar against the dollar was aimed at protecting the economy.

"We made a change in the exchange rate of the dollar to protect the economy," Allawi said at a joint press conference in Baghdad.

He added that "the budget is the first step in the path of economic reform and the revenue difference by changing the exchange rate will be allocated to support vulnerable groups in society."

In turn, Minister of Planning Khaled Battal confirmed that "the volume of investment spending will be around 8 trillion dinars in the 2021 budget."

He added, "The budget included the suspended train project, the port of Faw, and a number of projects

Information / Special ...

Economist Ihssan Al-Tamimi said that the dollar’s exchange rate may change after the middle of next year, especially if the government resorts to borrowing after it exceeded the month of June in 2021 because of the large deficit in the budget.

"The budget, which exceeded the 160 trillion dinars, has a large deficit that exceeds the 60 trillion dinars, at a time when everyone is contemplating the rise in oil prices to cover this deficit."

He added that "the government will resort to borrowing again, in the event that it is unable to overcome the deficit in the budget, which is intended to take additional measures that would increase the dollar exchange rate."

And that "the dollar exchange rate may reach abnormal levels and may exceed 1700 dinars to one dollar, after the middle of next year, if the government can find new sources of financing that eliminate the budget deficit."

Al-Kinani ruled out the return of the dollar’s exchange rates to 1,200 in the next three years, especially since global markets are suffering from a financial crisis due to the Corona virus, amid fluctuations in oil prices due to the repercussions of the virus. 25 n

"Won't return to 1200 in the next 3 years?" 

 

Dear Kazemi,

 

How are you going to join the WTO and compete within the region with an undervalued worthless currency?

 

How are you going to begin rebuilding your infrastructure with a worthless currency and you will need to import the majority of the supplies?

I admit, I don’t have a degree in economics, BUT what did the CBI THINK was going to happen? The only advantage I could possibly see with the negative  rate change was to fight corruption . I never expected this action but no one, whom I have read, has ever really had a handle on the Iraqi economic activities; just opinions and theories which I enjoy reading, but no one really knows how all this is going to play out or when. It only makes sense that a country would want their own currency be recognized internationally but I’ve thought that for the last 10 years 😁
