Advisor to the Iraqi Private Banks Association, Samir Al-Nusairi, called for the ministries, concerned authorities and banks to support and implement the Central Bank’s procedures to achieve financial and banking reform based on the axes of its new strategy, which relies primarily on regulating foreign trade, maintaining the general level of prices, and reducing the inflation rate, which is one of the basic goals of the policy. Cash.
Al-Nusairi indicated in an interview with Al-Eqtisad News that the percentage of external transfers on the electronic platform exceeded 95 percent of merchants’ daily transfers, and efforts are continuing to conclude agreements with countries to adopt their local currencies such as the Indian rupee, the Turkish lira, the Emirati dirham, and the euro for direct dealing instead of the US dollar. .
He stated that it is in line with the campaign to support the Iraqi dinar in internal and external transactions, the Prime Minister’s announcement of Iraq’s desire to enter the BRICS group, as approximately 70% of the total trade exchange takes place with China, India, and Brazil, in addition to the fact that 50% of Iraq’s oil exports are through the BRICS countries. This is an important step if the group accepts the joining of Iraq.
Al-Nusairi confirmed that the Central Bank’s departure from the platform method in 2024 will contribute to the fact that external transfers will be made directly between the Iraqi merchant and the exporter through the correspondent banks that will be approved and international companies that undertake pre-audit operations. Al-Nusairi concluded his speech by saying that the challenges faced by the Central Bank and the government against the financial and banking reform strategy, and that what is spread by speculators, the corrupt, and their media and analysts, will not last long, as the battle will inevitably be decided by completing comprehensive financial and banking reform processes and stabilizing the exchange rate within the targeted limits.
