    Baghdad today - Kurdistan
    Kurdish economist Farman Hussein confirmed today, Thursday (October 19, 2023), that the Kurdistan Regional Government bears part of the crisis of the instability of the dollar exchange rate.
    Hussein said in an interview with “Baghdad Today” that, “In addition to the central bank and official institutions in Iraq, the regional government is also a partner in the dollar crisis.”
    He added, "The Kurdistan government cannot control the black market and the smuggling of hard currency through border crossings and airports in Kurdistan, and through unlicensed companies, and this matter has further complicated the crisis."
    Earlier today, Kurdistan Customs Director Samal Abdul Rahman revealed that strict measures had been taken to prevent the smuggling of dollars and hard currency from the region.
    Abdul Rahman told Baghdad Today, “The decision to collect fees in Iraqi dinars at border crossings is an important decision aimed at preserving the hard currency and also strengthening the Iraqi dinar.”
    He added, “This measure is very important, and a good step aimed at strengthening the dinar, and the measures taken by the Customs Directorate at all ports and airports are deterrent measures for the purpose of preventing smuggling.”
    Last Monday, the Kurdistan Regional Government decided to collect taxes and fees at border crossings in Iraqi dinars, instead of the US dollar.
    The Department of Media and Information stated in a statement, “Based on a decision issued by the Kurdistan Region Council of Ministers, customs duties and taxes at border crossings and customs points will be collected in Iraqi dinars instead of dollars,” indicating that “any party that does not adhere to this decision will be subject to punishment.”
    She stressed that “all ministries and relevant authorities will be bound by this decision, and in the event of any violation occurring at one of the border crossings or customs points, the violator will be subject to punishment.”
    Experts point out that some of these cash sales allocated to travelers leak into the black market and are purchased by merchants to finance their trade with countries banned from the dollar, led by Iran, from which Iraq’s annual import volume amounts to approximately 10 billion dollars.
    Others warned of the repercussions of some banks not handing over dollars to “travelers,” while stressing that the continuation of the matter would lead to an increase in demand for the dollar in the parallel market and thus an increase in the exchange rate. 
    Many private banks and exchange companies are accused of being involved in smuggling the dollar, leaking it to the black market, and seizing large quantities of currency auction sales. The accusations also targeted the National Bank of Iraq (Jordan) of seizing 70% of the Central Bank’s daily dollar sales.
