Samson: Saleh discusses with an American envoy the latest developments in Syria and the region LINK
MilitiaMan: I’ll bet the pressure is on and being applied all to well. The calm that is been taking over in the south with demonstrators while the USA keeps a close eye on things. Notice the progress in the news about implementation and activation of commercial projects and even at World Class Levels, too. I sure have.. imo ~ MM
Samson: Diyala clans stage demonstrations in support of the peaceful center of Baquba LINK
MilitiaMan: I suspect you like the level of calm we see. Just as we would like to see at this time.. Very positive indeed! ~ MM
Samson: Karbala Police: The holy city is quiet and there were no clashes LINK
MilitiaMan: More calm.. Setting the stage for a sound environment. They may expect that all they see from the CBI and Banks of late has there attention now.. The expectation of purchase power and that the USA has there back, is a good thing. ~ imo ~ MM
MilitiaMan: The calm on the streets has a great feel today. The recent actions of the suspension of loans is powerful. All loans and many contracts have to deal with payments.
Think about it. Every car loan, house loan, private loan, commercial and even industrial loans have to be adjusted accordingly when a rate is expected to change.
The citizens in mass will know that. Sistani was telling the public yesterday that he was in support of their demonstrations if peaceful and voila, today we see that to be the case.
So, when they say all banks are involved that means they are ready now. Banks are closed in Baghdad long time ago now.
They have said they were having a Parliament session tonight in regard to the budget.. So, I feel good that this one killer window!! imo ~ MM
Samson: Finance of Kurdistan announces the start of the distribution of September salaries next week
5th December, 2019
The Ministry of Finance and Economy of the Kurdistan Regional Government announced today, Thursday, the start of distributing the salaries of the region’s employees as of next week.
A source in the ministry said that next Sunday 8/12/2019 will witness the beginning of the distribution of the salaries of the month of September 2019 to the office of the Ministry of Peshmerga and the brigades affiliated to the ministry.
The source added that the distribution process will continue after that according to the schedule set for all government departments and institutions. LINK
MilitiaMan: A little behind are they not? Or are they hiding something to come next week.
We know salaries are going to be more and more electronic. As are the new small category notes that they banks have sitting in their respective vaults. Like the ones they mentioned yesterday from back to 2010 specifications. I find that brought forward the data from the CBI as it is relevant now, as they specifications will be required for security purposes.. Why?
Imo a rate change warrants it.. Just as the suspension of the loans for the month suggest’s a change is coming to keep things on a level playing field.
So payments, will need to be sorted as well. If they are behind in payments? Then they’ll need to knock them out and quickly.
I suspect since the Kurds showed and are happy from what I see anyway. The dates may be a squirrel.. They have a schedule. Schedules have dates and times..
They say they will continue next week.. I am liking this. Future new salaries are the goal electronically. Just as the new notes based on a % will be too..
Very interesting timing to bring out an article that shows months old dates today, yet talk of next week.. imo ~ MM

MilitiaMan: The price of the dollar may change to the Dinar is right, imo.. We are told that not only the TBI suspended loans, all banks may have. Apparently they sure have.. imo A rate is expected to change prior to salaries, contracts, etc, and most will need to be electronically done, whereby, those that are not yet opened an account will get NSCNs, thus, they will need to be adjusted or paid accordingly. Don’t forget that the CBI warned on the CBI site that is was coming.. Wow.. They meant it.. imo ~ MM

The process of regulating the transport of goods and attention to the work of ports plays an important role in the economic junction, because Iraq has important ports, which gives it a strategic importance between countries, especially neighboring countries in activating trade and favoring it in favor of Iraq through the coordination of the work (logistics cities).

The committee discussed the topics on the agenda, which included six chapters, including statistics and data of foreign trade for Iraq, the accumulation of containers and goods in Iraqi ports, the activation of river transport and mass transit and other issues related to the problems and obstacles facing transport and trade and the Ministry of Health and the city of Baghdad.
The minister continued, “ After the clear demand for Iraq’s ports, because of its strategic importance in activating trade between neighboring countries, it is necessary to create storage yards (logistics cities) allocated for the storage, examination and delimitation of goods in order to evacuate the docks of ports and allocate them to the work of ports exclusively to encourage merchants and do not accumulate goods in the port. ”
The activity of commercial traffic in the ports of Basra is the interest of the majority of foreign investment companies, amid efforts to restore this city to its position as a major commercial center in the Gulf region, while showing the need to accelerate the implementation of simplified customs clearance to facilitate the entry of materials and goods needed by Iraq in the reconstruction Infrastructure.

In an interview with Al-Sabah, Al-Sabah said that “the procedures under which the ports are operating, despite the adoption of customs tariffs, do not live up to international standards of work.
“Local merchants and international companies entering Iraq are seeking customs clearance facilities in ports, but the procedures followed delay the process of speeding up the entry of materials needed by investors in the implementation of their projects,” she said, pointing out that “access to customs facilities would maximize efficiency Capabilities to a world-class level, along with providing speed and reliability for the operation of Iraqi ports. “
Basra has five commercial ports and two oil ports. The first is Al-Ma’qal, the mother port that was established in 1916 and the Al-Fao port, which was established in the same year. In the early 1970s, the port of Umm Qasr was built. In 1974, Khor Al-Zubair and Abu Flus port were built on the banks of the Shatt al-Arab. LINK
