    Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq: We plan to delete zeros from the local currency By Rodao 17/9/2018 10444 views Different categories of Iraqi currency Roudao - Erbil The governor of the Central Bank, Ali Alaak, on Monday, the existence of a plan to delete zeros from the local currency, noting that "this plan needs to deliberate steps, so as not to be exploited in the fraud. Al-Alak said in a statement to the official Sabah newspaper that "currencies with small categories, may lead the citizen to bid farewell to banks in the difficulty of storage." He added that "the central bank has a future plan to restructure the Iraqi currency, including the deletion of zeros, but this plan needs to deliberate steps, and a stable situation in order not to be exploited in the work of fraud and others." He explained that "the Central Bank has a reserve of foreign currency very comfortable, approaching close to $ 60 billion, compared to 43 trillion dinars, which means that it covers 170 percent of the size of the mass of cash." On the launch of the currency of the category of 100 thousand dinars, the central bank governor pointed out that "these ideas are traded by the Central Bank, but at the present time regret it." The central bank introduced in April a project to delete three zeros from the currency, in order to confront inflation and stimulate the economy, but was forced to stop because of the deterioration of the security and political situation in the country "to prevent manipulation and fraud of weak souls." http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=auto&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.rudaw.net%2Fmobile%2Farabic%2Fbusiness%2F170920181
