butterfly https://shafaq.com/en/Economy/Iraq-s-Minister-of-Finance-supports-floating-exchange-rate ……………… Iraq’s Minister of Finance supports floating exchange rate………………………. Shafaq News/ Iraq’s Minister of Finance, Ali Abdul Amir Allawi, said on Thursday that he supports adopting the floating exchange rate policy in Iraq.
“The Iraqi currency is fluctuating, but the Central Bank intervenes from time to time to keep it in the range of plus or minus 5%,” Allawi said in a press conference on Thursday.
“The exchange rate is not sacred as it was before. Fixing the rate leads to the accumulation of economic problems and explosion later.”
“The Central bank’s policy is to maintain this rate and keep the gap between the official price and the market at a tolerable range,” he noted, “fixing the exchange rate is vital except in the case of economic indicators that push you towards change.”
A floating currency is a monetary system that is not backed by gold or assets and tends to fluctuate in value due to supply and market expectations. Its value is also determined by global demand and the level of foreign reserves.

“Fund can be obtained from the IMF via several routes: the first is Coronavirus, but we did not need it. The second is the financial reform funds, which we needed. The third is sought to cover massive financial deficits, but we did not need it as well.”
UNEEK And a little more news ……… The Minister of Finance talks about the process of changing the exchange rate of the dollar
Thursday, 08-26-2021, PM 2:51 Karar Al Asadi 2271 Today, Thursday, Finance Minister Ali Allawi announced that the process of changing the exchange rate was not easy, and while he indicated that Iraq came out of the difficult economic situation safely, he revealed the reasons for the delay in paying salaries.
Allawi said in an interview with a number of media outlets, “Iraq’s financial policy during a year and a half went through five exceptional circumstances,” noting that “entering at the beginning of the government’s work, there was no financial safety valve.”
He pointed out that “the Iraqi economy has changed since 2019 and the obligations of the previous government, and the Corona crisis led to the collapse of oil prices and increased unemployment,” noting that “the government’s policy worked to control expenditures and thus reflected on state revenues.”
He added, “The process of changing the exchange rate was not easy, but the fiscal and monetary policy is reformist and it must be continued.
The reform process is correct and started with banks and customs,” stressing that “the fiscal policy aims to balance oil and maximize other resources.”
He pointed out that “the process of changing the dollar exchange rate should have taken place years ago, which reflects something beneficial to reform the economic system, as it is not possible to create an incubating environment for a private economy without the government’s ability to change the distortion of public finance.”
And he indicated, “The exchange rate reflects many issues and its rise is beneficial for some economic sectors,” noting that “the process of changing the exchange rate was wanted to create a competitive atmosphere in Iraq, especially since today there is a balance between demand for currency and supply.”

NORV Why does Iraq not have a small currency? An economist answers!
08/26/2021 01:38:59 PM special/ range Today, Thursday, the economic expert, Salama Sumaisem, revealed the reasons for the disappearance of small currencies in Iraq.
Sumaisem said in an interview with (Al-Mada), that “Iraq does not have the small currency for many reasons, the most prominent of which is borne by the former regime.”
She added that “the decline in the value of the Iraqi dinar in the nineties of the last century due to the embargo forced the government to print the currency illegally in order to pump more to cover the financial deficit at the time, which resulted in the disappearance and decay of the small currency.”
She pointed out that “presenting small currencies now needs two things, the first of which is to control inflation in the markets, and this matter is very difficult to control by the government, especially after the step of devaluing the Iraqi dinar.”
Sumaisem explained, “The second thing is the need to restructure the Iraqi monetary system, and this requires a very flexible monetary policy in order to achieve this.” https://almadapaper.net/view.php?cat=245959
