Economist: Two Parties Benefit The Most From Changing The Exchange Rate
The economic expert, Manar Al-Obaidi, stated, on Thursday, that companies and banks are the biggest beneficiaries of the exchange rate change that took place at the beginning of this year.
Al-Obaidi said, in a post on his Facebook page, which was followed by the “Information” agency, “At the beginning of 2021, the exchange rate of the dinar against the dollar was changed, and one of the goals was to reduce the differences between the official exchange rate and the exchange rate in the local market.”
He added, “Depending on the data of the Central Bank of Iraq, the value of sales in central dollars from the beginning of 2021 until October 2021 amounted to about 29 billion US dollars, a decrease of 20% compared to 2020 and by 31% compared to 2019, but it is still higher than the sales of the Central Bank for the year 2016 which amounted to $26.5 billion.
He pointed out that “the percentage of differences between the central exchange rate and the exchange rate in the local market amounted to 1.82%, and the value of the differences until October of this year amounted to 526 million US dollars, a decrease of 52% compared to 2020, where the value of the differences was 1.11 billion US dollars, but the differences increased.” Compared to 2019, by 13%, where the value of the differences was 464 million US dollars.”
He continued, “The year 2015 was the highest in differences, as it amounted to 2.6 billion US dollars at the time, or 7.41% of the total sales. Therefore, reaching 1.82% is considered an achievement in reducing the value of the differences significantly.”
He considered that “these differences made profits for many banks and companies that benefited from these amounts, especially in the years (2015, 2016 and 2017), where the percentage of differences exceeded 7%.”
He pointed out that “the total differences between 2010 and 2021 amounted to more than 18 billion US dollars, representing 4% of the total sales of the Central Bank, which amounted to 450 billion US dollars.

Samson….your AMAZING!!! How you find all this is beyond me! But thank you….if I may opine on this incredible article:
Talk about a potential “strategic” leak this article says MANY things….
1. Quote: Qusay said, in an interview with “today news”, that “it is expected that next year’s budget will reach the limits of 90 billion dinars,”
Well wait a second…I thought they did all the calculations in “TRILLIONS”. I checked the translation…it indeed says “Billions”. Has something changed? Now check this out:
2. Quote: “the value of this budget will cover the financial deficit and debts owed by Iraq, in addition to securing the salaries of employees in full.”
Are we seeing a country now able to provide for themselves and stand on their own two feet? This can only happen when the country is “sovereign” and working under Article 8 of the IMF and “FULLY” international to allow for secondary market integration and infrastructure expansion!!
Folks, these are not Typo’s!!! Their words…and strategically given out by this gentleman IMO. OK, we move on:
3. Quote: “3% of Iraq’s oil imports will be released as a result of the zeroing of Kuwait’s debts, as well as the zeroing of the deficit during the past year, in addition to recycling part of the surplus for the next year,” noting that “the benefits of the oil-producing governorates will reach them in full with the completion of the next year’s budget.”
Well folks…this is even a more exciting highlight for the Iraqi people!!! ZEROING of Kuwait’s debts as well as ALL DEFECITS of 2021 AND the budget will have extra that they will roll over to the next year!!!!!!
So you have to ask the question…Kuwait is paid….and ALL other deficits will be paid off this year! AND, they will have a surplus for next year?????
WHAT IN THE WORLD IS IN THIS BUDGET????? I think we know:
A. The price of oil is higher than what is in the budget obviously BUT, something else is there too…
B. The WP’s (Directions/Roadmap) plans for Success which will drive and control the budget expenses…and the RATE!!!!!
SO, if they are “intentionally” leaking this information about the new budget and reflective of a new rate…this truly is…ANY DAY!!! IMO
With the education we KNOW they are doing with video’s and the energy creation it is doing with the citizenry it is clear they are executing on a strategic plan as remember…the CBI IS NEVER LATE!!!
