An Iraqi official in Baghdad revealed that the government will provide a package of incentives and facilities to encourage both foreign and domestic investors. The plan aims at easing the pressure on the state in the reconstruction and development file, especially the liberated cities that have been heavily damaged.

The official, who declined to be named, said that Baghdad aspires to achieve a successful investment model, pointing out that the opening of Turkish Iranian Kuwaiti Jordanian to Iraq in this area more than other countries.

Last year, parliament passed Law 21, which includes extending the powers of local governments to Iraq’s 18 provinces, including exercising executive power over government institutions without returning to the central government in Baghdad to bypass investment complexities.

The economic researcher Fuad Mohammed said in a press statement that “the transfer of powers to the provinces and disengagement from the center, is an opportunity to develop their cities and increase the demand for capital, especially as the cities of southern Iraq enjoy security stability compared with other cities.”

“The cities of Basra, Dhi Qar and Maysan have a geographical location that attracts a lot of investment because of the large oil wealth it owns.”

For his part, said MP from the Parliamentary Services Committee, Burhan Mamouri, in a press statement, “The reality of investment in Iraq in general does not rise to the required level, and will not be available if the government did not pay sufficient attention to security in all Iraqi provinces.” The most prominent demands of Iraqis in the protests in various provinces, which have continued sporadically since the ninth of July last, to provide jobs for the unemployed, and improve the level of services and living.

Al-Mamouri stressed that it is not possible to develop the Iraqi economy and address the financial problems if the country does not go to invest like other countries, to provide work and projects.

The Ministry of Planning issued a recent report, in which it showed that poverty rates rose in the cities occupied by the terrorist advocate to 41%, after not exceeding 20% ​​before that. She pointed out that the poverty rate in the southern provinces amounted to 31.5%, and increased in the central governorates, Baghdad and the Kurdistan region at varying rates.

But he said: “The investor when he comes to these provinces hit a lot of procedures, both red tape and bureaucracy, or on the side of users at the head of power in the provincial councils and administrations, as some of them bargain investor to pay money and bribes in order to end the proceedings.

He stressed that “all this affected the work of the investor, which caused the loss of many economic opportunities to leave the southern arena and Basra, specifically,” calling on the government to open wider doors through the activation of the investment law, or work to provide channels attractive to capital, Port of Faw transport and construction projects

When Will the Iraqi Dinar Be Revalued?

What Is Currency Revaluation?

When Will the Iraqi Dinar Be Revalued?

The revaluation of the Iraqi dinar is ready to be implemented by the country’s Central Bank; however, the Parliamentary Economic and Investment Commission has decided to postpone the revaluation to 2019. The plan is to eliminate zeros from the value of the Iraqi currency, allowing the dinar to gain value on the global market.

With the anticipation of the Iraqi dinar revaluation, millions of dinars have been bought all over the world by investors. Those investors hope that the revaluation of the dinar will increase the value of the currency, which would make all of their dinars worth significantly more than when they bought them. However, the revaluation continues to get postponed and is set for 2019 as the country faces more pressing political issues.

Currency revaluation refers to a calculated upward adjustment to a nation’s exchange rate relative to its chosen baseline. The process is undertaken by nations with fixed exchange rates to deliberately increase the value of its own currency relative to a single currency, a basket of international currencies or whatever the underlying baseline may be.

Currency revaluation only occurs in fixed currencies, meaning the currency is pegged to a foreign currency, a basket of foreign currencies or a different quantitative benchmark. The process may only be undertaken by the underlying nation’s government or policymakers. The act of altering the value of a nation’s currency relative to other currencies is typically influenced by market pressures. The pressure is now.

A government typically revalues its currency when it wishes to increase the value of its currency relative to its benchmark currency. This maneuver would officially increase the purchasing power of the nation’s residents while decreasing the price of imports.

Revaluation is the inverse of devaluation, which is the official lowering of the value of a nation’s currency within a fixed exchange rate. Under this measure, the underlying government establishes a new fixed rate respective to the benchmark.

The International Monetary Fund encourages governments and policymakers to refrain from manipulating exchange rates to gain unfair competitive advantages over foreign currencies.

The Dinar and its impact on the national currency

The Dinar and its impact on the national currency

Since the Islamic Republic of Iran entered into the second package of sanctions imposed by the United States, which includes two important sectors are the energy sector and the banking sector, and raised some questions on the impact on the Iraqi economy if the exclusion of trade between Iraq and Iran, Excluded some countries, including Iraq for (90) days, to settle the accounts related.

Suppose Iraq and Iran signed an agreement that would lead to dealing with the dinar and riyal. What is the impact on the Iraqi dinar?

The demand for money and the exchange rate is a positive one, and I mean the price of the dinar against the dollar. The higher the demand for the dinar, the higher the value of the national currency. And the increase in the volume of foreign reserves in the Central Bank and this will enhance the ability of the Central Bank to defend the dinar against any future dollar demand, especially that Take care Cash Attiyat cover the needs of the country for more than 9 months. This exceeds the standards set by international financial institutions.

The reason is that the monetary demand function is moving to the top rather than the demand only, as a result of changing the method of repaying foreign trade receivables in Iraq in dinars and not in dollars. In the case of a monetary cash leak from Iran and dollars for Iran on the black market without legal controls, the equation will be reversed. Presenting the dinar at home The central bank is exposed to pressure in the exchange rate and sells large quantities because of the increase in the dinar.

There should be a unit of measurement for the two currencies, and the most accurate currency is the dollar, but will the US accept that the dollar is the criterion for determining the values ​​of the two currencies? This is what we will touch in the coming days after the continuation of the Iraqi-Iranian agreement.

The largest deletions of zeros in history

The largest deletions of zeros in history

The Central Bank of Iran has proposed the deletion of four zeros from its besieged currency (riyal), according to Reuters, as it lost more than 60% of its value in 2018.

Governments usually delete zeros when their currency loses purchasing power rather than issuing large categories of currency.

The issue of canceling zeros is not new in Iran. It was preceded by Venezuela when it deleted 5 zeros and Iraq, which has already deleted zero zeros from Iraqi dinars. Turkey eliminated 6 zeros in 2003.

BGG ~ This has to be a case of mistaken journalism. I don’t see any way one can mistake Iraq for already having “deleted” zeros from their currency.
