After 17 months of its approval, the Minister of Finance explains the results of the decision to devalue the Iraqi currency

Finance Minister Ali Abdel Amir Allawi spoke, on Wednesday, about the results of the government’s decision to raise the value of the dollar against the Iraqi dinar in December of the year 2020.

Allawi said, in a report on the economic situation of Iraq for the year 2022 seen by “Al-Iqtisad News”, that “one of the most important results of reducing the price of the Iraqi dinar against the dollar is the recovery in foreign currency reserves with the Central Bank, and a significant decline in the difference between the official exchange rate and the price in the parallel market. By about 3-2% and at the same stable level for the years 2018 and 2019, adding that this “means that there is stability and reliability in the Iraqi market for the Iraqis, as well as removes most of the profit margin for those who exploit the currency market at the expense of the Iraqis.”


The devaluation of the Iraqi dinar against the US dollar also led to an “increase in oil export revenues by 23%, which allowed the government the financial space to increase spending in response to the needs of citizens, and also contributed to the decrease in the demand for the US dollar, and despite the current demand for the US dollar is higher than the decreases seen.” In 2020, it is much lower than the period before 2020.”

He explained that “the continuation of the Ministry of Finance’s sales in US dollars reflects the increase in oil revenues and the increase in the government’s provision of goods and services to citizens,” noting that “the rise in the prices of the Ministry of Finance’s sales in US dollars in return for the decrease in demand for the dollar will lead to an increase in foreign currency reserves with the Central Bank.”

Allawi pointed out that “the depreciation of the Iraqi dinar led to the preservation of foreign currency reserves with the Central Bank of Iraq after the low and critical levels that reached at the end of 2020,” explaining that “the gap between the official exchange rate and the price in the parallel market increases during periods of turmoil and uncertainty, Therefore, the reduction of the aunt helped the Iraqi financial situation to restore stability and certainty for the Iraqis and increased the confidence of foreigners to invest in Iraq.

The minister hopes that “the recovery in foreign currency reserves with the Central Bank, the stability of the Iraqi dinar exchange rate and the stability and stability of financial policy will lead to enhancing confidence in the Iraqi banking system by increasing the strength of deposits and loans.”

He believed that “Iraq’s direct devaluation of its last currency avoided risks because the forced currency devaluations confuse people’s confidence in the banking system and lead to hoarding cash and withdrawing deposits, which puts pressure on the banking system,” noting that “pumping liquidity into the economy will raise the non-oil gross product by an estimated rate.” 20% in 2021 after declining by an estimated 8% in 2020  link
