BGG (Dinar Guru) –    …When there is a value change – we will know. The value of the Dinar was spoken to directly by the Gov of the CBI several times in the few days. Going down is not what he said.  …we are really close… they are handling financial, economic and currency reform items every day. The news about the Commercial Agencies Law being voted on shortly is HUGE. Big companies won’t go to Iraq if they have to hand their business over to an Iraqi.  We should be very encouraged.  The factual info is plenty encouraging.

The advance granted to employees who have a smart card receives their monthly salary

Baghdad/SNG –
Rafidain Bank, said Saturday that his predecessor granted 10 million dinars for State officials to have smart card activated receives her monthly salary.

The Bank’s information Office said in a statement, a copy of SNG received “a strategic plan on the Bank granted 10 million advance that an employee must have a smart card activated through resettlement of salaries in private savings accounts and activate the electronic tax receipt and pay her monthly salary, in addition to the payment of the insured who has previous advance advances.”

“The smart card is issued through his pledge to continue feeding the payroll every month on the same context through employee service covered by the advance provided the nearest branch of the Bank to disclose all of their salaries and all the details that I depend upon electronic form fields and sent a copy of the data on a disk (CD) and the book of the revolving head wave to section on safety supports detection and his pledge to provide salaries for employees of the full circle in that branch.

“The commitment that upon completion of the staff is called accounts under the names transferred to branches in accordance with the electronic form to get their signatures on contracts and then issuing the smart card.

The Ministry of finance had agreed on 18 September 2016 launch staff personal advances amounting to 10 million dinars for various purposes and according to the controls and instructions, while set conditions for the employee on this loan from has a smart card and amralmtkodm must not exceed 50 years.

1Bobby ~  These are the cards that will reduce the note count and add liquidity to the banks. Remember the 3 Ministries that agreed to have ALL employees salaries issued thru this card? Also the Rubber Industry agreed to the same with their employees (19,000 or so) This “10 million” advance was aimed at the :shortcomings” of the salaries due to the economic crisis.

Employees that sign up, thru the smart card, will be eligible for these advances. Just inner workings that have been going on for awhile now. They had to get the Ministries approval and get their ducks in a row before proceeding with this program. Bottom line is…..reducing note count, adding liquidity to the banks. Hope all that made sense. I’m sure others can add to it.

Loop (Dinar Guru) –   Article:  “International Monetary showing satisfaction of Iraq’s efforts to meet the credit requirements of the program”   Quote: “…satisfaction with the efforts made by the Ministry of Finance and the Central Bank of Iraq and other ministries in the area to meet the requirements of the program,” adding “it is going according to timings marked in the program,” according to the statement…it is going according to timings marked in the program…The IMF is satisfied with the progress of the SBA!  BOOM.

Iraq opens the door to possibilities deletion of zeros from the local currency (16/1/2017)

Baghdad (Iraq 24) – Iraq opened the door to possibilities deletion of zeros from its currency, where the Central Bank of Iraq, said that there is full control of the Iraqi dinar.

The governor of the bank on the Keywords in a press statement, that “the rumors about the Iraqi dinar at risk and prone to degradation and decline in comparison with other currencies as dollar, is not true,” adding that “Msatralih dinar fully and that in progress.”

…” adding that “Msatralih dinar fully and that in progress.”…

Another posted this translation:
Msatralih (verb)

1) to make a new or revised valuation of;
2) to increase the legal exchange value of ( a nation’s currency ) relative to other currencies

wmawhite: Msatralih dinar fully and that in progress.

Msatralih dinar fully and that in progress.

wmawhite: …” adding that “Msatralih dinar fully and that in progress.”…

Okie Dinar:  Awesome!


Loop (Dinar Guru) –    Article:  “Finance issued government bonds secured one billion dollars”   Quote:  “foreign banks praised the interest rate achieved by the Ministry of Finance for these bonds compared to similar cases to other countries, the issue is guaranteed by the United States government bonds.”   The EU BONDS ARE READY (ISSUED) AND THE FORIEGN BANK PRAISED THE INTEREST RATE ACHIEVED!  So what’s changed from last year? As evidenced by the shear number of MoUs and other agreements Iraq has made with countless countries. THE WORLD LIKES THE ACTIONS THE IRAQ HAS TAKEN TO CORRECT THEIR ECONOMIC COURSE AND THEY ARE SEEING THE POTENTIAL TO MAKE LOTS AND LOTS OF MONEY. AND THE SPEED AT WHICH THESE BONDS CAME OUT IS AMAZING!
