MilitiaMan:  So the calls for that there are no companies leaving the Kurdish area yet are false, those names above are very large companies. They are not in the business to break laws. imo Just like the CBI is likely to not waste 10s of millions of dollars on new currency issuance to be wasted.  Nor is it likely that the digital BUNA platform was to test the IQD for clearing currencies, or the digital AYSCUDA system in place for to facilitate digital taxation at the borders. imo That would include the borders with the Kurds… imo ~ MM




Samson:  Ramadi markets are stagnating with the approaching Eid Al-Adha


4th July, 2022


Eid al-Adha differs this time from previous years in terms of buying and selling, and the demand of citizens in Anbar Governorate to buy clothes and Eid supplies, as was common on festive occasions, according to what a number of shop owners and citizens in Ramadi indicated.


The Iraqi News Agency (INA), during its field tour in the markets of Ramadi, surveyed the opinions of shop owners and citizens, to clearly identify the market movement and the reasons for the recession.


Amjad Hamid, (owner of women’s clothing stores), told the Iraqi News Agency (INA), during her tour: “In previous years, despite the Corona pandemic and the curfew, the demand for shopping was good, and we, the shop owners, were able to sell half of our goods by through the delivery service to our customers in all regions. Hamid added, “We are currently presenting offers for our goods at discounted prices, but the sales movement is still not good to the extent that we suffer from not being able to provide rent for shops and pay the wages of electric generators whose prices have risen to 25 thousand dinars per ampere.”


For his part, citizen Riad Suleiman (a government employee), indicated that “every Eid, he would buy new clothes for his children, but this year he was satisfied with buying only basic foodstuffs, due to the high prices of goods.”


In turn, Amer Muhammad (owner of a children’s clothing store), pointed out that “this holiday is very different from the holidays that preceded it, as most of the dependence has become on employees, and all shop owners were waiting for employees to receive their salaries in order to move the stagnant market and activate the sales movement”, stressing that “the stagnation in the markets remained unchanged.”


And Muhammad continued, “The stagnation of market movement and the low demand for purchase greatly affected the shop owners and burdened them with debts, especially since most of the goods offered are “models”, meaning that they are governed by a specific period of time, and this is another problem that is added to a number of other problems that he suffers from. Including shop owners.


MilitiaMan:  Inflation has strangling the citizens before a very special holiday.. The heat is on!! They need purchase power fast..


The street will not take kindly to not only that the election failed and dissolution of the parliament being likely and will likely make them to have to wait for some timed before that is resolved, mean time the temperatures are up in Iraq now and electricity has still some issues on the back of higher costs…  imo


This is added pressure to get the new exchange rate presented.. imo ~ MM




Tivon:  Between now and the 16th is such a turbulent window of opportunity given what Petra has shared  LINK   I wonder the implications in regards to the citizens who are experiencing and witnessing the inflation, political impasse, electricity, poverty, etc will do in this hot month where tempers & temperature can incite some instability in the region and people take to the Green Zone or anywhere for that matter and start demanding everything the EFSL is/was created for in large numbers? What is going on with that Gazette? Something is off because on one hand Mazhar said the law entered into force. On the other hand the ministries said they didn’t receive anything. Therfore they can’t not help the families in need who are atleast 300,000 in the database. IMO
