Central And Financial Challenges

Wednesday 30 September 2020  53   Ahmed Al-Rikabi   Overcoming the financial crises that the country is exposed to depends mainly on the sectoral agencies and the role of public and private institutions, and here comes the role of the Central Bank of Iraq, which has managed over the past years to overcome many of the challenges that faced Iraq due to the fluctuations of the international market and the security challenges that the country has faced Complicated.

Today, the country suffers from a financial challenge, due to the decline in oil prices and the reduction of the export share due to the lack of demand due to the “Corona” pandemic, which requires diligent and prudent work to achieve the least losses.

Since private banks have become more numerous and widespread than government banks, which helps reduce the risk of the financial crisis, especially after the Central Bank worked to directly support private banks by resettling salaries and granting easy loans to most groups of society through them.

We all know that the private banking sector operates under the supervision of the Central Bank, and that 75 percent of its cadres are former employees of the public banking system, as they have been attracted to strengthen the human resources working in this joint with its capital and advanced technical capabilities compared to public banks.

Strengthening the reality of liquidity in the private banking system is an important matter, especially in banks whose capital is less than 250 billion dinars, and this requires the Central Bank to stop at some previous instructions, especially issued in 2017, which were correct at the time and no longer fit the present time, as it was The price of Crude Oil is different from today, which requires a pause.

Here, it is preferable to release funds to increase the capital for banks whose capital is less than 250 billion dinars, as it provides liquidity to the local market and thus has strengthened its support list for the private banking system, as it is considered the father to lead this important body.

The reality of financial reform requires all concerned institutions to stop at the overall joints of legislative and executive work and the extent of the benefit provided to the financial sector in general, especially since Iraq is in dire need of an effective, financially and technically integrated banking system to manage the economy and deal with the large numbers required by development processes, and not It is difficult for the central bank to be the cornerstone to support the banking system, especially after the recent decisions that complement its successes and overcome various challenges.
