Baghdad – Mawazine News

Today, Sunday, the Parliamentary Finance Committee recommended imposing supervisory measures to control the price of the dollar in the market, while suggesting that the current financial policy be reconsidered.
The Rapporteur of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, Ahmed Al-Saffar, said, “The government resorted to changing the dollar exchange rate as a result of the financial crisis in paying the salaries of employees and the lack of sufficient funds to cover the necessary needs, as well as the drop in oil prices at the time,” noting that “the financial situation changed after the rise in oil prices that It reached $73 a barrel, and the justifications that existed for changing the exchange rate no longer exist.”
He added: “We must take control measures to control the exchange rate of the dollar, and prevent manipulation by banks and exchange offices, especially since the Iraqi economy depends heavily on the dollar and controls the level of prices in the market.”
He explained that “oversight by the legislative authority is carried out through hosting or interrogation, as well as by requesting special reports for exchange operations, and the most important reports are the final accounts,” noting that “the final accounts do not exist from 2014 until now, and the hostings and interrogations are not achieved.” End 29 / A87

economydollar pricesCentral Bank of Iraq 2021-06-13 06:29A-AA+

Shafaq News/ The Parliamentary Finance Committee revealed, on Sunday, the allocation of three billion dollars to control the market and control the rise in exchange rates.

Committee member Jamal Kougar told Shafaq News Agency, “The Central Bank has allocated three billion dollars of financial liquidity as a result of the rise in oil prices for the purpose of controlling the market and controlling foodstuffs and the high exchange rate of the dollar against the Iraqi dinar.” 

He added that “the central bank sells daily more than 200 million dollars in the currency auction for the purpose of controlling the market, but the recent rise in the dollar exchange rate came as a result of supply and demand for foreign currency.”

On (March 31, 2021), the Iraqi parliament voted on the first article of the budget law, which included the adoption of the dollar exchange rate of 1450 dinars per dollar.

The proposal of the first article stipulated calculating the price of a barrel of oil at 65 thousand dinars without mentioning the exchange rate, which leads to fixing the dollar exchange rate as proposed at 1450 dinars per dollar.
