MilitiaMan (Dinar Guru) –  Article:  “Saleh: There are question marks on mechanisms to convert foreign currency to Iraq”    When Saleh talks about the safest way to secure payment methods at this juncture in time, is serious information. The documentary credit [reference post 2] is looking to be the way he is going to protect that long line. It is an assurance that the importer has complied with standards that are acceptable for international trade. This is setting the stage for what is expected and that is a level playing field in an international setting that requires transparency and a stable currency at a stable price.  Bye bye program rate! imo~ Chapter 7 was lifted on the 8th of December from the article I read.. Imo That was a go time! wink wink wink The twins were born.. lol ~  [post 1 of 2….stay tuned]

 MilitiaMan (Dinar Guru) –  “The documentary credit is one of the most secure payment methods in international trade, offering the exporter a conditional payment guarantee from the importer’s bank.  Documentary credits usually require the presentation of certain documents, which must be complied with before payment can take place. You must be aware that banks examine the documents only with respect to the documentary credit and do not look at contracts, agreements or the condition of the goods.”   [post 2 of 2]

Iraq emerges from Chapter VII and the “oil for food”

Iraq ended Saturday with a decision by the Security Council to withdraw from Chapter VII of the oil-for-food program imposed on it since the 1990s.

“Iraq has regained its normal status and international standing,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Ahmad Mahjoub said in a statement, adding that his country had completed all commitments to the program after a series of diplomatic successes.

According to the Security Council resolution that “completed the efforts of Iraq to end its files from the era of the former regime,” he ended his obligations under Chapter VII on the oil-for-food program, after he carried out in full.

In 1996, the United Nations imposed the $ 64 billion oil-for-food program to enable Iraq, besieged by timely international economic sanctions, to sell certain quantities of its oil and buy basic necessities.

BGG ~ Obviously, this is very big news, however…

Is Iraq being FULLY removed from the UN Ch 7 Charter (as in – all UNSC oversight)?

(BTW – the sanctions and “the UNSC Charter” may well be two related but different functions)

The wording is still a bit murky for me…

There are some “tensing”, translation and direct reference issues I would like to see cleared up. 

It’s not entirely clear they are officially clear of Ch 7 entirely. In many of the articles and interviews, it appears (to me) as though this is referring to the Oil-for-Food program as an individual issue… apart from the UNSC overall function.

I have said repeatedly – I’m not sure they will release Iraq from their UNSC Ch 7 oversight anytime in the near future. This would greatly limit the UN’s ability to come and go (within Iraq’s borders) as they see fit.

Though the UN appears to be pushing Iraq forward rapidly, I am dubious they give up a big tool in their fight against terrorism in the region.

Does Iraq have to be fully released from the UN Ch 7 charter (the protection portion) to progress to where we would like them to? I believe not. JMHO.

Worst case – they are released from the Oil-for-Food portion of the UN Ch 7 sanctions – which is the last of the active CH 7 sanctions and allows them to sell oil more freely on the open market. Great. Huge move forward.

I am going to be somewhat reserved until a official U.N. announcement of a full release from CH 7.

It’s also curious how they managed to hold an international bond offering without this previously and were successful??

My advice – NO MATTER WHAT… calm down. There is an extraordinary amount of jumping from A to B to Z in the community right now. None of the assumptions have to be correct. Relax – wait for the facts.

Don’t add to the “internet hysteria” going on right now…

Kaperoni (Dinar Guru) –   [What other laws are we waiting on? I believe I read something a while back from Kap saying the cbi law was what was needed and there was no specific law needed for the deposit insurance.]   Both are done...  CBI law passed last month and deposit insurance was passed months ago, never implemented…yet the CBI stated just a day or so ago insurance was imminent.

Don961 (Dinar Guru) –   Some are confused and have asked:  Chapter VII, Chapter VI are UN sanctions…having to do with Kuwait war reparations from Sadaam’s attack on them…  Article VIII compliance has to do with the IMF…Dotting all the i’s , crossing all the t’s to comply with IMF rules and regulations.

Kaperoni (Dinar Guru) –   Article:  “Specialist: Iraq’s exit from Chapter VII paving the way for a safe area for business and investment”  [I don’t see them getting out of Chapter VII until they satisfy their debts to the Kuwaiti’s…]   a deal is done to pay the balance with Kuiwait.  Today’s press release concludes Oil for Food program under Chapter VII moving Iraq to Chapter VI.  I think the references to the assets and banking accounts is significant.  This could effect the dinar.

Adam Montana (Dinar Guru) –   …over in Iraq, we have a little more news than usual this week! It’s being rumored (some confirmed sources, some… not so confirmed) that there is a legitimate push to introduce new currency notes, presumably in smaller denominations. That’s not something you do unless you can establish a need for those smaller notes, which of course requires a stronger exchange rate.  The Budget is likely to be finalized in February. I know that’s an eternity for some of us, but that’s the buzz.  Unfortunately, I have nothing to report on the HCL. I’m hearing rumors, but nothing confirmed..

Governor of the Central Bank of the first economic profile for 2017

*The support provided by the Central Bank to the national economy during the economic and financial crisis and the war on terror is a shining point and a successful experience of success in a country that is going through harsh conditions and a historical phase which is the most difficult to face the economic and security challenges that no country has experienced in the world during the last three years like Iraq.

As proved Mohsen Alalak, Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq and his team that they are Mujahideen of first-class in the promotion of economic steadfastness and achieve financial stability and financial victory.

That would tell us too much.

Kaperoni (Dinar Guru) –   [where do you think the float will start at?]  I expect it to start right where it is at 1184…may go up fast who knows.  The CBI would be foolish to RV, to much money to be made off commission.  The IMF wants currencies to float.  […could you please explain how this will work.]  …hard to know for sure but we will learn when it happens.  I have my own guess…That the CBI will get in compliance with the IMF and accept Article VIII.  Move to a float…and gradually remove the 3 zeros notes and the dinar rises in value.  People dont realize the CBI needs a new exchange regime… choosing to float is a good thing…the CBI makes money…remember, if the CBI stops the auctions, they need to have an alternative.  A float allows for the CBI to buy/sell and make commissions and its all about the money.  Lets put it another way, you cannnot revalue 44 trillion dinar…thats 4 times the worlds money supply…no such event will ever occur.

G-Lin (Dinar Guru) –   A well-informed political source reveals the “identity” of the two companies that the Abadi government contracted with to help fill corruption files...  Article quote:  “A source familiar with the political, on Sunday, that two companies are conducting the verification of files of corruption in Iraq since 2003.  The source said in a press statement that ‘two companies, one American and one British are conducting the audit files corruption in Iraq since 2003 so far, and its task to detect corruption and identify the identities of those involved.”  The investigation into the corruption cases is due to start on the basis of a memorandum of understanding signed by the Iraqi government with the United Nations.  International investigators will assist the Iraqi government in uncovering the fate of Iraq’s $ 361 billion budget deficit between 2004 and 2014.

Where is the Iraqi economy?

The economy is the engine of the joints of the state and the recovery of the various sectors, whether government or private sector so all countries of the world seek to develop plans either short or long-term; in order to improve their economic reality.

It is obvious that the positive economic return is a factor in the well-being of the people and the rise in income, not to mention moving the sectors in a way that serves the wheel of construction and development, especially as the market world today forces countries to enter the competition in order to increase their imports and seek to acquire the market.

Iraq is part of today’s world, which has needs and requirements that must be provided to sustain life and meet the needs and wishes of citizens and the state alike. But the economic equation says that the trade balance should be moderated to realize whether we are in a good economic situation or that the balance of payments exceeds the balance of imports.

G-Lin (Dinar Guru) –    Abadi has a ridiculously tough job and I don’t think he can do it alone. Amal Clooney has appeared before the U.N. several times begging Abadi to sign a simple doc. that would open Iraq up to the I.C.C. and to my knowledge he has not cooperated yet. Parl. probably has him handcuffed. So frustrating. The I.C.C. has all of the docs. on Maliki and many more and interpol could issue arrest warrants immediately. Maliki and Barzani are too powerful and charges must be brought up in the international courts. Curtailing Iran’s influence is no easy task. I did read yesterday where Russia is giving some resistance to Iran and the Gulf summit will be held in Kuwait next week. Results of that summit may be fruitful
______________________________________________________________

Kaperoni (Dinar Guru) –   We all should know by now currency reform is a process. Currency reform like we want to see requires stability, implementation of technology, and planning.  From what I am reading, progress has been made in recent weeks with the new CBI law, anti money laundering, electronic banking.  But this takes time to implement and activate.  Not to mention the CBI still has work to do to be in compliance with the IMF.  The good news is the CBI is pushing forward on reforms, have banking events scheduled next month, next year.  With all this known, hopefully we will see changes in the next few months to perpetuate the banking system and encourage investment
