Expert expects oil prices to rise to $300 a barrel

The oil expert, Hamza Al-Jawahiri, said on Sunday that setting the price of Russian oil by Europe will raise prices to 300 dollars per barrel.

Al-Jawahiri told Shafaq News, “The issue of setting a price for Russian oil is not possible with the recognition of the European countries themselves, because Russia can not sell oil to them, and therefore the harm will be more than the benefit, which these countries felt when Russia stopped pumping gas to it.”

He added, “European countries cannot force the largest Asian oil importers, such as China and India, not to import Russian oil, which is what we are witnessing today,” adding that “if Russia stops its production by 5 million barrels, it will negatively affect oil consuming countries, especially European countries, and the price of oil will rise.” Oil to $300 a barrel.

The Group of Seven (Canada, France, the United Kingdom, Japan, the United States, Germany and Italy) agreed to move forward with setting a ceiling for Russian crude oil prices, in an attempt to reset global crude prices and reduce Russia’s revenues from oil sales, primarily seeking to To inflict a “financial” defeat on Prussia.

The formation of the Sudanese government pushes the Iraqis again to demand a decrease in the exchange rate of the dollar

With the formation of a new Iraqi government, demands were renewed to change the exchange rate of the dollar against the Iraqi dinar.

And members of the House of Representatives demanded the inclusion of the voting paragraph on restoring the exchange rate of the US dollar against the Iraqi dinar to its previous official rate in the schedule of the upcoming sessions. But the Central Bank of Iraq reiterated that there are no intentions to change the exchange rate.

The Finance Committee of the House of Representatives describes that what some are promoting about the possibility of Parliament issuing decisions that restore the dollar exchange rate to what it was in the past, are nothing but auctions and tickles the feelings of the street.

The leader of the Al-Hikma Movement, Fadi Al-Shammari, said that the parliamentary talk about changing the exchange rate is a scandalous bidding of no value, adding that the biggest beneficiaries are currency traders and speculators.

Journalist Daoud Hashem considered, in a tweet on Twitter, that the corruption of those in charge was behind raising the exchange rate under the title of economic reform, adding that the markets have been balanced and prices will not go down because the state does not have the tools now.

The exchange rate has become a table among both popular and elite circles.

Economic expert Salam Sumaisem believes that the cost of restoring the dinar to its old price against the dollar will be very high, adding that what is rumored now is for the purpose of political propaganda or speculation to reduce the price of the dollar to get it at a cheap price.


On the shoulders of many Iraqis, the question is whether the political forces and blocs that were calling for devaluing the exchange rate will be able to achieve this after their participation in the Sudanese government.

Political analyst Nazir Al-Katib suggests that the exchange rate will not be reduced to what it was previously, speaking of two direct reasons, the first of which is external factors such as the World Bank and the Paris Club, which absolutely control and control Iraqi financial resources, and the second: If the government agrees to reduce the exchange rate, the political class The governor will have to lose 40 to 60 billion dollars annually, which will go as differences in salaries and other operating wages and the like.

The decision of any change in the dollar exchange rate is exclusively the prerogative of the Central Bank.

Economic observers believe that decreasing the dollar exchange rate, a project that will not succeed, because the change in the exchange rate is originally part of the reform program of the Central Bank in coordination with the Iraqi financial policy in order to raise the financial reserves in the Central Bank and prevent the smuggling of hard currency out of the country.

On December 19, 2020, the Central Bank of Iraq announced the adjustment of the US dollar exchange rate to 1450 dinars, instead of 1200 dinars, for every 100 dollars.

Indonesia offers 10-year visa for US $ 128,000 in bank | Daily Mirror


In a move to increase the economic activity in the country, Indonesia launched this week a fresh visa policy that will allow foreigners to make Bali their second home.

Under the new “second home” visa scheme, foreigners can stay for up to 10 years and carry out various activities, provided they meet the requirements.


A news report by Channel NewsAsia stated that to qualify for the scheme, those interested must have at least US $ 128,400 in their bank accounts and a passport that is valid for at least 36 months. “The aim is to attract foreign tourists to come to Bali and other destinations,” said acting Director General Immigration Widodo Ekatjahjana during the launch of the scheme on Tuesday (25). 

According to the news report, the launch takes place just a few weeks before Indonesia is set to host the Group of 20 (G20) Leaders’ Summit in mid-November, which will see thousands of delegates arrive in Bali. 

The new regulation will take effect on December 25, 2022. 

“This immigration policy is one of the non-fiscal incentives that can be a stimulus for certain foreigners to stay and contribute positively to the Indonesian economy amidst increasingly dynamic global economic conditions,” added Ekatjahjana, as reported by Channel NewsAsia.

The new visa scheme is however received with reservations by the Balinese travel sector.  Putu Winastra, head of Bali’s chapter of the Indonesian Tours and Travel Agencies expressed uncertainty as to how the new policy would help to boost tourism on the island. “The second home visa will be given to people who stay in Bali in the long term,” Winastra told CNA.
