Al-Hashemi calls on the government to focus on the digital economy

The Deputy Executive Director of the Association of Iraqi Private Banks, Ahmed Al-Hashemi, called on the government to focus on the digital economy during the current years to make Iraq keep pace with the development taking place in the world.

Al-Hashemi said in a statement seen by “Al-Iqtisad News”, that “Iraq needs to give the private sector the appropriate environment to transition to digital transformation, as the revolution in information and communications is currently similar to what the world witnessed in the industrial revolution that occurred in 1760,” noting that “the legislative authority The future needs to focus on supporting the digital economy through appropriate legislation.”

Al-Hashemi pointed out that the world is witnessing great leaps in technological development, as the transactions of companies and citizens are completed via the Internet without any review, while Iraq is still adopting the primary mechanisms that increase financial and administrative corruption and contribute to the delay in completing the transaction in terms of time. 

Al-Hashemi praised the government’s tendency to establish a youth support fund with an amount of 30 billion dinars, which supports technical projects, which contributes to the development of the Iraqi economy and makes young people go towards pioneering projects, pointing out that the private banking sector has begun to publish electronic payment tools in all the country, and requires Shop owners need to use a Pos device to organize the buying and selling process, reduce theft, waste, and morelink

I am just really EXCITED to see Iraq being removed from the sanctions list of the U.N. after Saleh’s recent visit and speech! With trade and ports officially off of sanctions they are free to trade internationally unless I’m missing something. That would mean they HAVE to have a revalued exchange rate to compete with prices & trade internationally, right? I’m excited again for the first time in almost a decade! 

I copied one of the articles from Facebook but it’s all there in black and white!
