    [size=52]Financial reform in Iraq: moving towards a digital system and development[/size]

    [size=45]Translated by / Hamed Ahmed[/size]
    [size=45]A report by the Canadian Economic News website, Business Network BNN, addressed the aspect of economic and financial reform that Iraq seeks to achieve by implementing its transition in its financial sector and transitioning to the digital era and economic growth in order to achieve stability and prosperity.[/size]
    [size=45]The Canadian report states that there is an economic and financial reform revolution taking place silently in Iraq, a country that the press often portrays as troubled by conflicts and disagreements, but which is now moving forward towards a qualitative transition in its financial sector and beginning a new phase of digital technology and economic growth.[/size]
    [size=45]The Iraqi Prime Minister, Muhammad Shiaa Al-Sudani, recently chaired a crucial meeting that focused on the unified bank account and the electronic payment system, and these are two poles that will broadly reshape the country’s financial landscape. Al-Sudani focused on the urgent need to activate the work and responsibilities of the Payments Council at the Central Bank. These are not bureaucratic directives, they are an urgent call to modernize Iraq's banking sector and a fundamental step towards broader economic transitions.[/size]
    [size=45]The Prime Minister also stressed that he would receive a final report on the progress achieved, and this reflects a demand for accountability and transparency. His directive to all ministries to implement the fourth paragraph of Council of Ministers Resolution (3581 of 2023) and to accelerate the formation of committees only emphasizes the necessity of accelerating this task at hand.[/size]
    [size=45]The report states that Al-Sudani's call to conduct an analysis of the immovable bank accounts of each ministry within a month is a testimony to the government's determination to address the financial recession and inject momentum into the economy. It forms part of a larger effort to make the financial system more responsive and agile and align it with the changing dynamics of the global economic system.[/size]
    [size=45]In the first banking conference of the Central Bank of Iraq held in Erbil, the transformation towards a digital economy was at the forefront of the conference and its central topic. The conference, which was attended by the Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Region, Masrour Barzani, the Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Shakhwan Abdullah, and several political, economic and business figures, demonstrated Iraq's pledge to the growth of its banking sector and international cooperation.[/size]
    [size=45]Central Bank Governor, Ali Al-Alaq, highlighted the risks associated with a cash-dependent economy, which include financial crimes and illegal practices. He painted a picture of a digital economy in which technology serves as a catalyst for growth and transparency. Al-Alaq stressed the importance of maintaining the stability of the exchange rate and giving priority to the components of financial systems and commercial provisions.[/size]
    [size=45]The governor also highlighted the importance of adhering to anti-money laundering and terrorist financing laws, which demonstrates Iraq's pledge and commitment to international conventions and standards. These efforts aim to ensure the transparency and integrity of financial operations and make Iraq a more attractive location for global investments.[/size]
    [size=45]The report indicates that the developments taking place in the Iraqi banking sector are not separate events in themselves, but rather part of a larger issue about the progress and modernization approach that the country is witnessing. The country is taking important steps towards building a stable, safe and effective banking system that is vital for attracting investment, promoting economic growth and improving the standard of living of its citizens.[/size]
    [size=45]The Canadian report notes that, based on the Prime Minister's directives and the initiatives of the Central Bank, Iraq's pledge to change the financial infrastructure is clear. Amid challenges and complications, the country is pursuing a path towards a future that is not characterized by conflicts and crises, but rather by stability, growth, and towards achieving digital capabilities. It is the story of a patient and ambitious country determined to ensure a promising future for its citizens.[/size]
    [size=45]The United Nations envoy to Iraq, Jeanine Plasschaert, said in her briefing to the UN Security Council earlier this month regarding developments in the situation in Iraq, that the Iraqi government has taken important steps regarding reforming the financial and banking system in the country. She stated that the Iraqi government has taken steps in the budget that allow for increased private sector investments and efforts to increase transparency regarding the collection of customs revenues.[/size]
