He pointed out that “the budget is considered an annual plan for a period of one year, and in the absence of an annual plan, the actual current expenditures for the past year are used, and the old 1/12 of the actual current expenditures of salaries, wages and continuous payment obligations is repeated,” explaining that “this is not in it economic planning and vision.
And he continued: “Whenever the financial budget is disrupted and the months pass, this will repeat the goals of the previous fiscal year, and this will result in a contraction in projects and investments,” pointing to “intensified efforts in the House of Representatives to approve the budget as quickly as possible, address errors and aspire to improve the economy and investment in Iraq.” Ended 29 / h
Expert: The Economic Decision In Iraq (Not Independent) And The Problem Of The Exchange Rate Is Not Technical
Economie| 11:11 – 12/19/2022 Baghdad – Mawazine News, economist Nabil Al-Marsoumi considered that the economic decision in Iraq is “not independent” and that the United States can “tamper” with the Iraqi economy and “disable its engines”, saying that the problem of the exchange rate is not technical but rather a political-economic one.
Al-Marsoumi wrote on his Facebook mural, “He studied the electronic platform!! The Americans suddenly discovered, after 18 years, that the window for selling foreign currencies in the Central Bank of Iraq contains loopholes that allow the smuggling of dollars to countries hostile to America and to armed groups, although this window is an industry.”
Purely American!! Therefore, the Americans once again created an electronic platform linking the US Federal Bank and the Central Bank of Iraq to track and restrict foreign transfers, which led to an increase in the price of the dollar in the Iraqi market.
He added, “What should be concluded here is that the economic decision in Iraq is not independent, and the United States can tamper with the Iraqi economy and disable its engines, and that the problem of the exchange rate is not technical, but rather political-economic, and the platform may be a warning or a prelude to subsequent American actions if Iraqi politics and its orientations deviate from it.” American visions and interests!! https://www.mawazin.net/Details.aspx?jimare=214540
