As he indicated that his financial portfolio in Iraq currently amounts to two billion dollars, he revealed a global initiative that the World Bank is working on to recover money smuggled from countries.

The Special Representative of the World Bank Mission in Iraq, Ramzi Numan, said in an interview published by the Iraqi government news agency and seen by Shafaq News Agency; "The partnership relationship between the World Bank and Iraq is very close and is based on years of joint work, pointing out that" Iraq enjoys a very important position at the Arab and global level, and that the World Bank was next to Iraq in the various stages of stability and peace, or in the stages to which it was exposed. To the attacks or changing economic conditions, which led to difficult repercussions on the government and people of Iraq, and actual work began with Iraq, I think, in the years 2006 and 2007 through a group of projects.

He added that "the World Bank's portfolio in Iraq currently amounts to two billion dollars and that these loans were signed about two or three years ago," noting that "the main pillar in it is a loan to reconstruct the liberated areas and the result of the request came after the beginning of the first phase of liberation, that is, the liberation of Salah Governorate." The debt was then supplemented with an additional amount after the liberation of the rest of the governorates.

And that "this current portfolio in Iraq includes projects under implementation and projects or loans due and that the World Bank is working to implement projects associated with them."

Regarding the change of the exchange rate of the dollar in the auction of selling the Iraqi currency, he pointed out that "changing the exchange rate aims to give the state the ability to increase its revenues, especially since the sale of oil in hard currency and converting it into the reality of the Iraqi dinar gives it a financial block that actually allows to increase revenues and reduce the deficit. He pointed out that "changing the exchange rate may allow facing imports from abroad because the domestic product becomes cheaper than what is imported from neighboring countries."

He explained that "the strategic objective of changing the exchange rate is to work to strengthen the local product and local industries to be able to face the external product, reinforced by measures to protect the product."

He continued that "the idea of raising the price of the dollar is an international policy that the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Planning, and the Iraqi government have participated in, especially the International Monetary Fund," explaining that "Iraq is now in the plight of the financial deficit and it has nothing but borrowing, either internally or externally," indicating that "Internal borrowing threatens the reserves of the central bank, just as using it to fill the deficit removes the possibility of investment in productive opportunities that allow the development of the private sector, while external borrowing has its components and conditions that are based on debt sustainability, subsequent repayment capabilities, financial and monetary stability, and this financial engineering must be looked at in an integrated manner." From which one can consider lowering the currency rate. "

He revealed "there is a global initiative that a team from the World Bank is working on in coordination with international organizations to recover money smuggled from countries," announcing that special departments of the Ministry of Finance are linked to the World Bank's initiative, indicating that "the World Bank is ready to provide technical support."

Changing the exchange rate of iraq dinar? Actually  changing the rate of iqd is the best idea and do it immediately ( don't just talk BS ) as long as the rate of iqd  doesn't change from 1460 to 1600 or even 2000.

And why has iraq liked to keep borrowing many times instead of just deleting 3 zeros and releasing lower denoms and revaluing the iqd at least 1:1? Come on iraq. It has already been almost 18 years and do something with your worthless currency quickly.

Iraqi President Barham Salih announced yesterday a mechanism to recover "stolen money" from Iraq (AFP)

Iraqi President Barham Salih announced that the Presidency of the Republic is preparing a legal code on mechanisms to recover "money stolen from Iraq" estimated by experts at about 250 billion dollars in the period following the fall of the regime of former President Saddam Hussein in 2003.
Saleh said in a televised interview yesterday (Wednesday). ), "The Presidency of the Republic is in the process of developing a legal code dealing with mechanisms to recover funds stolen from Iraq, and located abroad." He added that "the corruption file is dangerous and huge and needs broader and deeper treatments," noting that "with all these challenges there were procedures and courts that worked to rule on important corruption cases."
Saleh added that «the presidency of the republic is in the process of developing a legal code that we will negotiate with the House of Representatives, to recover the looted money from Iraq, perhaps it went to capitals and investments abroad». He pointed out that "there are important measures" that are being taken, considering that "striking financial corruption is an essential pillar for establishing security. Without it, security will not be established." He continued, "We are interested in having fair elections, and the Iraqi citizen feels reassured that his vote is protected and his decision is respected and that it is not tampered with through fraud and other measures."
Saleh's announcement regarding the development of this code of conduct comes at a time when the work of a higher committee formed under the order of the Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi to fight corruption continues. While the Iraqi judiciary has condemned a number of officials accused of corruption referred to the committee and issued penalties against them, the investigation is still ongoing with a number of other officials in a number of Iraqi ministries and institutions.
Regarding what is meant by the code of conduct announced by Saleh, economist Bassem Jamil Antoun told Asharq Al-Awsat that “the code of conduct is a set of points and standards related to the professional behavior of the parties concerned with this matter and which binds themselves to this code.” Regarding how Iraq can move in order to recover its stolen money, Anton says that “efforts are required, both local and international, in order to work on preparing the ground to recover what can be recovered from those funds that were smuggled abroad in one way or another, including: This is the use of Iraq's international relations in this regard, as well as Interpol, as Iraq is a member of this body (the international police) ».
"The money smuggled abroad, part of it goes back to the period of the former Iraqi regime, and the other part goes back to the post-2003 period," Anton said. While the size of the sums that were smuggled before the fall of Saddam Hussein's regime is not known, however, Anton says that “the money that was smuggled after the fall of the former regime is estimated at 250 billion dollars, although there are other numbers that may be much higher than this number, but it may be an exaggeration. ». And on whether it is possible to recover these funds, Anton says that "it is difficult to recover all the smuggled money, but it is possible to recover large quantities of it in various ways and methods." He explained that «there are different ways and methods to recover it, such as the Iraqi embassies abroad, according to the code of conduct that will be prepared in this regard, as well as the possibility of seeking help from countries or companies in countries where the largest amount of smuggled money is counted, and thus appropriate plans are put in this regard».
Among what the legal expert, Antoon, proposes to retrieve these funds or part of them, is "an agreement with specialized companies in exchange for a percentage of the money that is recovered, in addition to the method of spying on smugglers in unforeseen ways. It is also possible to negotiate with the thieves themselves sometimes" to return what they stole.
According to the estimates of officials and experts, the total income of the Iraqi state’s treasury after 2003 and until today is more than a trillion and 200 billion dollars, which are the funds resulting from the net proceeds of exported Iraqi oil, as well as the grants and financial aid that Iraq obtained from countries and companies. Despite these enormous funds, the poverty rate in the country is still high, as well as the lack of real change in the infrastructure throughout the country.

He explained, "It is difficult to know the exact size of the looted money, but there are estimates indicating that its size is around 300 billion dollars, and it may be more than that because the thieves have invested that money in real estate or other projects."

      WASHINGTON DC – Iraq said Sunday it had signed a $350 million loan package to finance emergency projects in territories reclaimed from the Islamic State group known as ISIS, or Daesh in Arabic. The fund will be used for “emergency reconstruction of areas liberated from the Daesh terrorists,” the Iraqi finance ministry’s website said. The agreement, signed in Baghdad by Iraqi Finance Minister Hoshyar Zebari and the World Bank’s director for the Middle East, Ferid Belhaj, is part of a larger package from the World Bank, aimed at developing infrastructure in Iraq.
      “The loan comes in the framework of a technical and financial assistance from the World Bank that totals up to $1.7 billion in development plans in Iraq,” the ministry said. In Washington in April, Zebari met with World Bank officials and called for $2 billion for the budget and for reconstruction in the liberated areas. The war with ISIS and a drop in oil prices has placed a severe financial strain on Iraq, with its current budget running a $20 billion deficit.   Luigi asks... Could these new loans delay the RV/RI? Can Iraq stand on it's own by 2016? Will Iran sep up as a team player in the region? What impact will this have on their economy? Is this more smoke & mirrors by the CABAL?
