KTFA (MilitiaMan & Samson)

  In KTFA 

DeepWoodz: Imo…just a question…With a new fiscal year now in effect… would it be important for any change in the rate to be in effect as well for accounting purposes? Or does it matter?
I ask believing they can hide it for as long as they wish.

MilitiaMan:  Good question, I hear the thinking is they will need to have accounting sorted quickly being electronically automated and within a short period of time. Hence, the need to be sorted within the mid month era.. Another theory, is for instance they share with the people of Iraq outside of western eyes for a few days””. Which could go into effect at just about anytime now.

Things are closed out to Monday. Stock exchange, official working hours, etc… imo I would love to see the CBI telling the world about Article 8 compliance with an internatioally acceptable currency storng enough to hold her own in the Secondary markets.. That is the plan from what the FA thread suggest. imo.. anyway.. ~ MM

OlLar:  I used to have an article where Abdule Turki interim CBI Governor said although its not the only time they can change the exchange rate , for accounting reasons the first of the year is the best IMO

Samson:  Ministry of Commerce: the middle of next month, the date for the application of the electronic payment system

31st December 2020

The Ministry of Trade confirmed, Thursday, that mid-January will be the date for the application of the electronic payment system for exporters and importers, while it indicated the reasons for the obstacles to the export process.

The general manager of the General Company for Fairs and Iraqi Commercial Services, Sarmad Taha Saeed, said, according to the official agency, that “the company has signed a contract with the Central Bank, regarding electronic payment, as it will be the middle of next month to implement the electronic payment system, which will allow exporters and importers to pay with any card.” Available”.

He added that “attractive offers were made to the exporters, by giving ten percent of the invoice value free of charge, in support of the Iraqi exporter, as our goal is not only to export, but to be the transfer in Iraqi banks, and to provide hard currency.” He pointed out that “the cabinet had previously issued a decision to make the export absolute, but we were surprised that most of the materials had stopped being exported due to the presence of laws that contradict the decision.”

He explained that, “when traders started exporting, they were surprised to stop exporting gravel, aluminum industries, etc., as we must take sectoral approvals, after which export is permitted, in addition to the existence of laws issued in previous years that prevent the export process, and therefore we must present a proposed law to the Council of Ministers and ratify it.” And it is sent to the House of Representatives and presented for the first reading and the second after which a decision is issued.”  LINK

MilitiaMan:  The push is on imo.. They don’t have much time between now and the mid month January time frame they give above to implement the electronic payment system. The minister of Trade had obstacles to overcome and it appears the obstacles have been overcome now.

The electronic payments should be from my understanding be done with a new digital dinar.

There words not mine.

The expectations of the ministries are working in my opinion in tandem or con conjunction with GCFICS with the CBI. The country has obviously devalued for a purpose(s) and the citizens and traders, exporters, etc., have been affected.

In my view they have a plan that included the devalue, then a subsequent deletion of the 3 zeros and then the intention is to defend the exchange rate for stability.

The electronic payments may very well be a very supportive clue to the accuracy of my view. We shall see. imo ~ MM

NICE….In sum, Mustafa Al-Kazemi, who dealt with elegance and dignity with the abuses that have affected him recently, due to his strong rejection and anger at the repeated attacks on the American embassy in Iraq, this rejection and anger are not due to greed in the rule of Iraq, and if there is no need for greed, then Al-Kazemi is like any Iraqi My country aspires to achieve the sovereignty of the Iraqi state and maintain its prestige, and to give priority to the supreme interests of the Iraqi state, and to participate in making the present and future of a prosperous Iraq.
