Parliamentary Finance reveals a central bank action regarding the rise of the dollar

Parliamentary Finance reveals a central bank action regarding the rise of the dollar

  {Economic: Al Furat News} The Parliamentary Finance Committee revealed a procedure for the Central Bank of Iraq to stabilize the exchange rate of the dollar in the local markets.

Committee member Mustafa Al-Karawi told {Euphrates News} agency: “The rise in dollar exchange rates is due to the recent Central Bank measures of closing outlets and preventing the sale of currency to some private banks, which reduced the presence of hard currency in the market.”
He added, “From this week, sales to outlets will increase, and after we contacted the governor of the Central Bank, he assured us that the exchange rate situation will stabilize in the next week, and the dollar will return to its normal position from 1480 or 1470 dinars to the dollar.”
Economists attributed the recent rise in the exchange rate of the dollar in the local markets to the central bank stopping 14 banks from entering the currency auction behind the rise in dollar prices in the local markets.
And the Central Bank had decided on November 6 to stop dealing in “dollars” with four banks for audit purposes whose names are linked to corruption files, while some parties said that the US Federal Reserve stopped financial transfers to 14 Iraqi banks on charges of smuggling money from the currency auction.

Blaskhart: The "theft of the century" will not be the last in Iraq, and the government has taken encouraging steps

  

Message from Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert, Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Iraq

On the International Anti-Corruption Day

December 9, 2022

Systemic change will prove vital to Iraq’s future

Widespread and systemic corruption is one of the biggest challenges facing Iraq. Its economic cost and negative impact on stability and prosperity are enormous. It undermines progress, disenfranchises citizens, discourages international investment, and robs the state of the resources needed to provide its citizens with better schools, hospitals, roads, and countless other public services.

I’ve said it many times before, most recently at the UN Security Council in October: Corruption is one of the main causes of the dysfunction in Iraq, and keeping the system “as is” will backfire in the end.

And the latest major corruption case in Iraq, dubbed “theft of the century,” will unfortunately not be the last, and we can only hope that it serves as a wake-up call. There is no doubt that systemic change will prove vital to the country’s future. However, this change will not happen overnight. It will require intense work, perseverance, team efforts and the realization that now is the time to act with integrity.

While the government has taken a number of encouraging steps, it is no secret that these efforts may be hampered or undermined by those who stand to lose. But let me stress that they should not be given any respite.

This year’s International Anti-Corruption Day (IACD) seeks to highlight the intrinsic link between anti-corruption, peace, security and development. Under the slogan “Unifying the World Against Corruption,” this day confirms that confronting this crime is a right and a responsibility for all.

In this spirit and for the sake of future generations, let us all work together, in Iraq and elsewhere, both as individual citizens and those in public office, striving for accountability, transparency, the rule of law, and building a system that serves the need of society rather than serving a narrow group of accomplices who care little. in the national interest. The expropriation of state resources for private and factional interests must stop. Ensuring accountability across the spectrum will be essential.
