Economy News-Baghdad

The financial adviser to the Prime Minister, Mazhar Mohammed Saleh, confirmed on Monday that Iraq has maintained a stable credit rating during the last eight years, noting that Iraq has a rating that includes countries, the majority of which are emerging economies.

Saleh told the Iraqi News Agency that “Iraq’s credit rating has been adopted since 2015 in our country, which reduced the cost of external borrowing by 50%, when Iraq issued the European bond called (Euphrates), which then borrowed Iraq from the international capital market by about one billion dollars, which is currently in circulation in European secondary markets.”

He pointed out that “there is a (Tijla) bond guaranteed by the United States government in the amount of one billion dollars as well as a European bond for Iraq in the name of (Iraq / 2028), which relates to the settlement of foreign private sector debts under the settlement of the Paris Club Agreement and an issuance amount of about 2.7 billion dollars.”

He explained that “Iraq’s credit rating generally depends on important macroeconomic criteria to the basis for achieving the so-called (creditworthiness of Iraq) and the economy’s ability to pay its debt services and external obligations without much failure.”

He added, “Economic capabilities are determined by the issues of deficit or surplus in the current account of the balance of payments and the deficit or surplus in the general budget at least, in addition to the role of foreign reserves and their efficiency as an indicator in covering outstanding debts and their short-term services.”

He stressed that “Iraq has maintained over the past eight years a stable credit rating whose indicators are issued more than one of the international credit rating agencies such as (ClubbleFitch) and others on a semi-annual basis, indicating Iraq’s great capabilities to meet its external obligations towards creditors and others around the world.”

He pointed out that “the classification enjoyed by Iraq today, which is within the scope of level B, puts Iraq among an important international group of at least 60 countries in the world, most of which are emerging market countries and emerging economies.”

Twilight News / Foreign Minister Fouad Hussein revealed, on Monday, the goal of the Iraqi delegation from the visit it made to Washington, DC, and while referring to differences between the purchase of the dollar and the market need, he stressed that the Iraqi currency is strong and reserves exceeded 100 billion dollars.

Hussein said in a press conference attended by Shafaq News that “the Iraqi delegation that visited Washington was composed of different sectors, and that the goal of the visit to Washington was related to the economic sector.”

He explained that “monetary policy was on the agenda of the visit of the Iraqi delegation to Washington, and we discussed political issues, fighting corruption and regional relations with the American side.”

Hussein pointed out that “the Iraqi currency is strong and that the Iraqi reserve exceeded 100 billion dollars and financial liquidity is available.”

The Iraqi Foreign Minister continued, “With the application of the electronic platform, it turned out that the need of the market is different from the currency that is paid.”

He pointed out that “the dollar’s relationship with the dinar is in the right direction, and there will be stability for a currency, it is a matter of time, we noticed this before traveling to Washington and with the measures taken by the Central Bank and the Prime Minister and the meeting of Istanbul before the delegation’s visit to Washington, the dollar stopped rising.”

“There are false intruations that were applying for the dollar,” Hussein said.

“The issue of dollar smuggling is not a cause but a result. Through the electronic system, it is difficult to know who receives the dollar and who is the last beneficiary.”

He pointed out that “the electronic platform will help stop preventing dollar smuggling, and the platform that deals in dollars must be placed at airports and border crossings.”سیاسة/حسين-يكشف-عن-هدف-زيارة-واشنطن-ويشير-الى-فروقات-بين-شرا-الدولار-وحاجة-السوق
