Tishwash:  The Citizens’ Central Bank: Do not hoard your money in homes … and it offers an alternative

The Central Bank of Iraq called on all citizens to deal with banks and financial intermediation companies licensed by this bank, during large cash exchanges, instead of hoarding in homes.

“The central bank seeks, through this, to preserve the money supply for citizens, avoid cases of theft and fraud, and promote counterfeit currencies,” said a statement by him, who received the Euphrates News Agency.

The bank stressed “the need to reduce trade exchange in paper currencies, which medical studies have proven to be an effective vector for viruses and bacteria, especially as the country is going through a crisis of spreading the Coronavirus.”

The Central Bank adopts the mechanisms of spreading financial inclusion in Iraq, which enhances the banking culture and the shift to monetary exchange through all forms of banking transactions with modern technologies.   link
