It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the inauguration of the ” Exchange Rate Policy ” course, which is being held by the Institute for Training and Capacity Building at the Arab Monetary Fund in cooperation with the International Monetary Fund’s Center for Economics and Finance in the Middle East, hoping that you will seize the opportunity and benefit from the topics of the course.

Achieving economic and financial stability is one of the most important economic goals in all countries, so macroeconomic policies are unique in large areas, especially those policies that aim to achieve stability. The course also highlights the differentiation of macroeconomic policies associated with different exchange rate regimes, the choice of the exchange rate regime, and the most important challenges facing exchange rate policy in developing and emerging market economies.

The exchange rate policy is one of the most important policies adopted by countries to maintain the stability of macroeconomic variables, the most important of which is inflation, which is considered one of the obstacles in achieving economic growth. appropriate exchange. A fixed exchange rate policy helps curb inflation, and a flexible exchange rate policy helps absorb external shocks. The results of adopting such economic policies were evident during the many economic crises that afflicted the economies of the world during the past two decades, which contributed to alleviating the negative effects of those crises.

It is known that the influx of capital significantly in the presence of an effective monetary policy enables countries to avoid the consequences of these flows represented by the rise in real exchange rates, thus reducing the competitiveness of these countries’ exports. Although these flows contribute to an increase in the volume of reserves, the accumulation of reserves may entail costs represented in interest payments on government bonds that are used to absorb the liquidity left by these flows. Therefore, it is necessary for countries to have controls to deal with capital flows, especially short-term, as these funds are often quick to exit.

Your course is rich in topics related to many important topics, as the different types of exchange rate strategies and arrangements and their compatibility with the existing economic policy will be reviewed.

The course will focus on the following main themes:

Basics of analyzing different exchange rate systems.

How to read international currency market indicators and exchange rates.

Assessing the adequacy of foreign exchange reserves using traditional and new indicators.

The relationship between exchange rate policy and macroeconomic policies.

Basic parameters for the transition from a fixed to a flexible exchange rate.

Establishment of early warning systems for currency crises.

In conclusion, I would like to thank the distinguished experts who presented the course materials, and to commend the fruitful cooperation that exists between the Arab Monetary Fund and the International Monetary Fund.

He continued: There is no pension salary for any deputy unless he has a pension service according to the unified retirement law, noting: What was mentioned above is not necessary for auctions and delusion of the people with media achievements only.

The privileges of officials have always been one of the most important motivators in all the popular protests that Iraq has witnessed since 2003 until today.

And the Iraqis describe the privileges of the officials as a door that the current political class has separated to steal and waste people’s money.

Parliament had voted on a law abolishing the privileges of all state officials, starting from the position of director general to the president of the republic, including Law (12) of 2005, the most prominent of which was the abolition of the material grant as stated in the first paragraph of it, and the prohibition of allocating funds for the treatment of presidencies The three, determining the number of their cars, and stopping the payment of rent allowance to provincial representatives who own real estate in Baghdad.

The purpose of approving this law, according to the compelling reasons that came in it, is to reduce expenditures and cancel the privileges of state officials, in order to achieve social justice among the Iraqi people.

Deep differences draw the scenario of Al-Kazemi’s extension…

Deep differences draw the scenario of Al-Kazemi’s extension…

May be an image of 2 people, people standing and suitBaghdad/The Obelisk: According to a report by Foreign Policy magazine, Thursday, October 14, 2021, the results of the Iraqi elections highlighted a class of independent candidates who won seats in parliament through the direct vote of Iraqis, according to what was achieved through the electoral law reforms.

The extension movement led by Alaa Al-Rikabi, a pharmacist who gained fame during the October 2019 protests, won 10 seats.

The independent parliamentary group will have to decide whether to join the ruling coalition – and risk spoiling the political process or remain pure but powerless as part of the opposition.

The magazine asks: Shouldn’t al-Sadr and his future parliamentary allies look for a new prime minister that they agree on? The consensual candidate may be the current Mustafa al-Kazimi, who has a good relationship with al-Sadr, al-Halbousi and the Kurds. If coalition talks stop and continue for months, this will be the likely scenario.

And the circulation is repeated about a political agreement between Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi and the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada Al-Sadr, to rename the first as head of the next government for a second term, in coordination with Sunni and Kurdish political forces and parties.

Political forces are betting on Al-Kazemi as the safest option in order to control the street and prevent the outbreak of new protests, especially in light of the emergence of indications that the anti-corruption campaign will move forward in overthrowing corrupt people belonging to the first echelon of the political class.

Observers believe that al-Sadr has changed his position from his desire for the next prime minister to be a Sadrist to supporting Al-Kazemi to run for a second term, as this is considered a kind of practical understanding of reality.
