Twig said in a statement to the National Iraqi News Agency / NINA /: The exchange rate still takes a large part of the attention of political and popular circles, knowing that the increase in the exchange rate was not the source of the monetary authority, but rather it was by the Minister of Finance, so the independence of the Central Bank at that time was questionable,


Therefore, decreasing the exchange rate is not impossible, and this matter becomes a strategic option for monetary policy if the monetary reserve continues to rise, and a restructuring of the Iraqi dinar is carried out in a direction that improves its purchasing power or radically replaces the Iraqi dinar with new values.


He pointed out that “the current and next two years are the most appropriate time to bring about this monetary change.” / End 8
