Kaperoni (Dinar Guru) –   Article:  “Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq inspected the headquarters of the International Development Bank”  They clearly seem to be getting ready for international banking!


RayRen98 (Dinar Guru) –   The CBI talked about economic reforms in the next few days, and said that they would lose IMF support if they didn’t get it done!  We haven’t had confirmation of lower denominations. IT was said that the supplementary budget had to be passed first, and we understand that when it is passed, the rest will appear in the next few days. Over the weekend, we were told that the budget was approved and it should show up in the Gazette on Wednesday.   Iraq has a meeting …1. August with the World Bank about their 580 billion dollar loan, and reforms must be in place before that time. The CBI has submitted their paperwork to the World Bank, and I guess we are waiting for the IMF and World Bank to sign off on it. So we are looking for this to unfold prior to August 1, or on August 1. We’re feeling pretty good about the 1. August, or before, unless something unforeseen happens.  It looks like we are at the end of this ride, based on the information.

Opportunities are coming

Economists, businessmen and businessmen consider that the next phase of the richest investment opportunities that the international companies are looking for in relation to the construction and reconstruction of Iraq is the same, but it is natural that the requirements of achieving this goal require considerable funds to absorb its implementation. Because it has huge money, modern technology and the required benefit, but there are challenges and outstanding effects that hinder the entry of these companies with large sums of money. What is required for this  challenge?

That Iraq’s need for funds is greater than we imagine to cover the reconstruction and reconstruction due to the infrastructure suffered from the total destruction and strategic projects of disruption and decline.

Therefore, the Iraqi banking sector in general has rich opportunities to contribute to the implementation of these projects in various ways through funding, partnership or
direct implementation .

But since the capital of private banks is weak compared to the requirements of financing construction and reconstruction, what is the solution to this challenge?
In a press interview with the banking expert Faisal Al-Hims, I asked him about his evaluation of banking performance. He said: “Let’s evaluate now. Let the question be what is required of the banking sector in the next stage .”

Said: The right way for banks to provide the requirements of the next phase is the integration of banking to raise the amount of funds capable of meeting the requirements of the executing companies .

And should be aware of the banks to the seriousness of dependence on the only product is the currency window, which may end its mission in the next stage, what will private banks do then?

Then it is now necessary to think about looking for a profitable and successful investment that can not be achieved without
banking integration .

 Kaperoni (Dinar Guru) –   Article:  “Central announces solutions to avoid a shortage of dollar “deviation” in the price of holidays”   They should have been doing this all along.  Taking days off allows for the spread to increase due to a shortage.  I would guess the IMF had a hand in this to get them to start attempting to get in compliance…and the CBI trying to minimize losses by only holding auctions on a schedule. But the reality is the fix is not to conserve dollars, it is to weed out the corruption.

 Islandg1211 (Dinar Guru) –    Eight months ago, I posted that we would need to see in this order before the RV…the following:
1) Mosul Liberated, Announcement by Abadi, and a Celebration. Done.
2) Agreement with Kurds, including oil and territory settlement, then finally the HCL will be in position to be passed by the GOI. (Kurds, including Barzani and the oil minister from Baghdad meet today…)   Getting Done.
3) CBI re-educating citizens on the deletion if the three zeroes (we are seeing the payments in country with e-dinars, CBI website upgraded to BIS), and finally
4) Iraq being compliant with Article VIII with the IMF and 5 – UN lifting sanctions and the RV.
The IMF is meeting with Iraq in DC this week. The UN came out a couple of days ago and told Iraq they need to be Article VIII compliant/RV
. The lynchpin to the RV, now that Mosul has been declared liberated by Abadi, the Kurds and Baghdad finalizing the HCL agreementBarzani wants independence, and this agreement is going to have to allow for that contingency in order to get him to sign off on it.  [post 1 of 2….stay tuned]

Central Economic and victory

Dr.. On behalf of the Patriarchs In his comment exhibition on the paper presented by the Governor of the Central Bank within a seminar held in Baghdad, Prime Minister for Financial Affairs Acanutormzar adviser Mohammed Saleh he said that the central bank contributed to the victory over Daesh through its success in achieving financial and monetary stability in the country during the period of military confrontation and thus maintain the level standard of living of the citizen, as well as it lent the government (indirectly) more than twenty trillion dinars.

He added adviser said the central bank had two choices : the first is to maintain internal independence towards the government finances and the failure to provide any financing to the government through the secondary market, which could have created a major financial crisis , and the second option to sacrifice its independence in order to maintain the stability of the financial situation and not to collapse, has Central preferred the second option in order to achieve stability.

Although this is still some singing charges for central without taking into account the state of war that call for providing the most important on important, some of them wonder about the central refusal to provide funding to the previous government, simply I think that the previous government requested funding has owned a financial surplus and a far cry between the two cases and, by contrast to imagine what it could be the case if the government was unable to pay the employees ‘ salaries?!.

Some say that the government withdrew from the bank reserve, and to clarify say: that the central reserve of foreign currency is not the government reserves last because to be the Ministry of Finance, as the government did not withdraw from the central reserve and it is permissible, and the central reserve changes linked to the first two factors is demand on the dollar , which is derived from the demand for imported goods and services generated by public spending.

The second issue is presented dollar (sold from the Ministry of Finance to the Central to buy the dinar), depending on the dollar revenues received by the government from oil which are affected by the quantity and price and when it drops one or both decreasing size of the reserve, and therefore the reserve is linked to public finances of the state.
Here we must recognize the central successfully during the crisis in maintaining the size of the reserve in accordance with the internationally accepted standards as well as the installation of financial stability contributed to the achievement of economic victory.

After Mosul’s full liberation Iraq’s Abadi visits Nineveh Ops Command

Iraqi PM Haider Abadi has visited headquarters of Nineveh Operations Command and met with military commanders.

This comes after the city of Mosul had been declared fully liberated from ISIS terrorists on Sunday.

The city fell to ISIS in June 2014 amid collusion from former PM Nuri al-Maliki.

Iraqi army, supported by US-led international coalition, has launched an offensive code-named ‘We Are Coming, Nineveh’ to oust ISIS terrorists from the city.

Iran-allied sectarian militias, known as IMIS, gave support to Iraqi forces.

But the Iran-backed militias have committed atrocities against civilians, particularly the Sunnis.
