 Live: Iraqi Prime Minister Mazher Mohammed Saleh’s financial advisor confirmed Friday that the central bank’s monetary policy is capable of controlling exchange rate stability.


“The Central Bank of Iraq’s monetary policy and its sufficient foreign reserves have the capacity to intervene in the exchange market by meeting legitimate demands for foreign currency, both in cash dollars and foreign exchange transfers, and to account for bank customers from private sector traders seeking to finance their foreign trade of various goods, services and benefits,” Saleh told The Iraqi News Agency (INA).

The Prime Minister’s adviser pointed out that this policy also has the capacity to meet small business demands in foreign currency itself, which are also one of the important windows in the stability of the exchange rate at its official borders, all of which lead to the stability of the overall level of prices.

He added that controlling local liquidity levels by sustaining local excess liquidity sterilizations to balance the exchange market and in accordance with the objectives set by the Central Bank of Iraq Act No. 56 of 2004 will remain the practical path in correcting emergency price deviations and controlling stability and sustainability.”

The Central Bank of Iraq had earlier confirmed the stability of the dollar’s exchange rate and the absence of any intention to change it.

“What is being traded is not correct, as the price chosen at the end of 2020 to exchange the dollar was based on in-depth studies of the requirements of the economic and financial situation and monetary policy objectives,” the central bank said in a statement received by the Iraqi News Agency (INA).

“Its foreign exchange sales are based on the stability of its foreign reserves at excellent levels, as those sales have been increased to meet all legitimate demands,” the bank said, stressing that “the price will stabilize as a result of the recent actions taken by the central bank.”
