Don961: People of experience and confidence …. The Golden Triangle

Special files  ,   12/12/2020 20:06  Baghdad – Iraq today:

We must record President Al-Kazemi’s success in choosing some of his government’s men with great competencies, high professional experience and pure national affiliation amid our objection to some unsuccessful options for running the state in his government, which is swinging in the midst of the popular and political storm that has been blowing over the country since Almost a year and a half.

Among the brilliant names chosen that should be referred to by Thousand Banan, the name of Dr. Ali Abdul Amir Allawi, Minister of Finance, Mrs. Suha Dawoud Al-Najjar, Head of the National Investment Authority, and Mr. Mustafa Ghaleb Makhaif, Governor of the New Central Bank, are the golden triangle in the prime minister’s options for the political and economic reform process to rescue Country.

It is the responsibility of the Central Bank of Iraq in this important triangle to control the economic and monetary rhythm in particular in the country, after a series of failures that occurred in previous periods that led it to the inability to distribute salaries and general cash scarcity in a dangerous precedent that no Iraqi government has faced since 1921 to present.

It must be noted that this choice in this critical period is considered a successful milestone blow recorded to the Prime Minister that opens up bright and broad horizons for the work of the Central Bank and draws great hope to change the stumbling economic conditions of the country by following a precise financial policy.

The first signs of which were important decisions in changing the structure of monetary and commercial dealings by adopting the principle of dealing Electronic financial (credit card) and moving away from paper cash (banknotes) in paying state employees’ salaries, which will be automatically transferred to their accounts, leading to transferring all daily payments and purchases to this system, similar to that of the developed countries of the world.

As well as setting up an electronic platform for all letters of guarantee issued in banks for the benefit of their customers in order to avoid the forgery and manipulations that occur in this important aspect of commercial and banking dealings.

And following the directions of the Minister of Finance and his support and encouragement for the idea of moving industry and national investment by facilitating lending to existing factories and factories to develop their production, and new industrial projects in order to employ the Iraqi workforce and develop the local product, which will be reflected in maximizing the general national product.

We raise the hat high to the Prime Minister on these delicate choices of people of experience and confidence and the promotion of high government positions with such names with high professional and administrative competence.

We wish success, success and repayment to the leaders of the Iraqi economy in their difficult mission, which, God willing, will undoubtedly succeed.  LINK

DeepWoodz:  Baghdad – Iraq today:”the New Central Bank, are the golden triangle” Imo…WOW!!!  Sounds like CONGRATULATIONS to me! But for WHAT???  NEW CENTRAL BANK???

MilitiaMan:  Sure looks like the have they system ready for change. The are effectively saying thank you to the three in the golden triangle.

The minister of finance, the CBI Governor and the Investment Authority. 

Combine this with the meeting at the Presidents house last night, the Kurds getting their payments simultaneously and the borders with Saudi Arabia are talking about a $ Billion for the year and that in revenues at the borders within days will be upward.

Well to the latter upwards imo is an increase.. So for all these items and payments, letters of guarantees, salaries, etc.. to all be in sync is very telling.

They have the Golden Triangle to thank and they are, as this wasn’t an endeavor that started yesterday. It has been a massive work in progress.. Lets see what they have to say in the coming days..

It looks very good, as the rescue is underway. imo.. ~ MM

The Parliamentary Integrity Committee identified, on Saturday, obstacles to recovering smuggled money abroad.

A member of the committee, Taha Al-Dafi, according to the official agency, said, “The recovery of the smuggled money is entrusted to the Integrity Commission, specifically in the Recovery Department, but the work of this department was not at the level of corruption and the amount of smuggled money,” noting that “the main reason for the weakness of money recovery is due to lack of cooperation.

Governmental institutions, including the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Central Bank and the relevant departments, are moving to conclude important agreements with governments that have provided information about the existence of smuggled money for Iraqi officials in order to recover money and people through the International and Arab Interpol.

Al-Dafa’i added, “There is also an important problem, which is the lack of cooperation from some countries with Iraq in following up the money and people such as Jordan and Lebanon, because these countries benefit from these funds and are present in their banks.” 

Countries and states to which the corrupt fled, as well as the presence of smuggled money and pressure on these countries to hand over the fugitives against whom arrest warrants were issued, and also to recover the money.

He pointed out, “The role of the Integrity Committee is to detect corruption and to deliver news and information, verify them and transfer them to the competent judicial authorities or the Integrity Commission.” LINK
