In late 2020, the Central Bank of Iraq decided to reduce the value of the local dinar against the dollar from 1190 dinars to the dollar to 1450 dinars, to contain a financial crisis that Baghdad was suffering from due to a significant decline in oil prices due to the repercussions of the Corona pandemic.
The decision sent prices to rise in domestic markets by more than 20 percent, negatively affecting low-income and middle-class people.
