"The US sanctions imposed on Iran will affect the Iraqi economy, as the value of the dollar will rise after increasing demand for it," Antoine said in a statement. He added that "the appreciation of the dollar against the Iraqi dinar, it is imperative for the central bank to increase the amount launched by the dollar in the Iraqi markets.

    Fayez: US threats on sanctions represent support for Abadi 8/15/2018 The leader of the Fatah alliance Amer al-Fayez, Wednesday, the threat of the United States of America to impose sanctions on Iraq because of continued cooperation with Iran in a harmonious and supportive of the position of Prime Minister Haider Abadi on sanctions, calling on the Iraqi Foreign Ministry to issue a position of those "interventions. " "The US threat to impose sanctions on Iraq for continuing its economic cooperation with Iran after the blockade is supported and supported by the comments of Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi on these sanctions and dealing with them," Al-Fayez said in a statement. He added that "this position comes to remove Abadi from the embarrassment of the political and popular opposition to his position after statements supported by those sanctions and the government's commitment to implement against neighboring Iran, " and called on the Iraqi Foreign Ministry to "take a firm and frank position of those statements to denounce foreign interference and prevent ridicule the sovereignty of the country. " Fayez pointed out that: dozens of countries are still working normally with Iran without the commitment to the American position, but the US State Department used Iraq to exert pressure on him as the weakest of those countries. The State Department on Wednesday threatened the Iraqi government if it refused to comply with US sanctions against Iran, noting that violators of the sanctions regime could themselves be subject to sanctions. http://www.almaalomah.com/2018/08/15/335259/

    Good morning all. Harry, you deserve a wonderful, comfy bed! The smoke from all the fires is not good. Don't want to be outside but a few minutes at a time. You can feel it in your lungs if outside more than 10 minutes, yuck! The fire 5 miles from us is now 100% contained, burnt down 5 homes, some outbuildings and damaged a few other homes had damage. No loss of life, thank God! 2 horses perished and one person was slightly injured. The wind shifted the fire away from densely populated areas. Now is all the other fires in Washington, Oregon and California would quit, we could breathe again lol. Have a great day all!

    Bank credit ratios 8/13/2018 Credit rates in the banking sector are among the most important criteria of economic development accounts. The main function of the banking sector is to stimulate savings in order to attract the cash mass, increase the percentage of deposits and then circulate them by offering loans to the public to finance projects, large or small , In order to create sustainable development for the real sectors and sectors through the sustainability of credit granting, thus contributing to the sustainability of the rotation of the wheel of the macro economy. According to data from the Central Bank of Iraq, the cash mass issued amounts to about 40 trillion dinars, but the proportion of available in the arena of banking does not exceed 30 percent, while the mass of cash condensed about 70 percent of cash out, which means that only nine trillion, is In the arena of banking. Recently, the Central Bank of Iraq revealed that 44 private banks did not contribute more than 10 percent of credit, which is very low compared to the rates of support enjoyed by private banks over the past 15 years. Because the ratio of credit to deposits means that the credit granted does not exceed a certain percentage of deposits, which means that the financial institutions increase their deposits if they want to increase the proportion of banking facilities they provide, the contributions of private banks appear very low despite the initiative of the Central Bank regarding granting more than trillion and 200 thousand Billion dinars at a low interest rate to private banks in support of small and medium enterprises. Thus, these indicators appear to be inconsistent with the directions of the Association of Private Banks in support of the program of financial inclusion adopted by the Central Bank to withdraw the cash mass and then recycled by raising credit rates in order to stimulate the business market and then turn the economy towards real development contribute to macroeconomic output From the recession that has been going on for years. Private banks are called upon today, more than at any other time, to exercise their role in the financial coverage programs on the ground and outside the seminar halls, and to launch initiatives to open accounts for small age groups coupled with future incentives and for other age groups and sectors, , As long as these banks have made significant progress towards the introduction of banking technologies and payment systems through electronic payment services towards achieving financial inclusion and the creation of non- monetary society . http://www.alsabaah.iq/ArticleShow.aspx?ID=161612
