Clare:  Financial inclusion activities will start on Tuesday with the participation of governmental and private banks


The banking sector begins to participate in the activities of financial inclusion, which is scheduled to start next Tuesday under the auspices of the Central Bank of Iraq and the Association of Private Banks, and with the participation of governmental and private banks.

Banks are reviewing banking services to customers, the use of electronic payment tools, POS devices, and the culture of electronic payment, which the government seeks to generalize the experience to all private and public sector institutions, and to open savings and current bank accounts.

Scarlett10:  Correct me if i am wrong, but wouldn’t we need to see a rate change for this to happen ? Financial inclusion means that individuals and businesses have access to useful and affordable financial products and services that meet their needs – transactions, payments, savings, credit and insurance – delivered in a responsible and sustainable way. Can they move past Tuesday without a rate change ? Anyone

Mnt Goat  I can hardly wait for them to roll out the newer lower denominations as this too will be our final sign that there is no turning back…  …the actions taken by the CBI since January you can clearly see, like me, that to this point there is really almost no turning back. Commitments are already going forward and the changes to reinstate at a revalue rate are in play. We just don’t know the date but we know it is coming and much sooner than later.

Militia Man  The CBI announced today the BSRS (Banking Supervision Reporting System)…It’s important is because …the banks in Iraq…didn’t have advanced technology.  It was all pen and paper…and it was a mess…Now they have the whole system set up from the Central Bank of Iraq down to the banks and down to the branches.  What that means is they have all the knowledge of all the currency inflow and outflow…In other words the central bank knows…how much currency inventory goes in the country and goes out of the country…they can account for all the money…The ability to account for currency and the inventory of it is phenomenal…
