He continued, “One of the other main reasons that contributed to the recovery of the Iraqi debt is the increase in the currency window sales for foreign remittances to the target rates between (150-200) million dollars per day, and the increasing entry of small merchants and importers to the platform after realizing their benefit from importing at the official price and their regularity with the foreign trade system.” In accordance with international standards, which strengthened the position of monetary stability in the trading market, which helped bridge the gap between the official price and the parallel price.

Al-Nusairi called on the Central Bank to make the next stage an assessment and analytical stage for the reasons that exacerbated the crisis in a timely manner, re-evaluating banks and licensed and unlicensed exchange offices, classifying them in a new way, and developing their work in all fields, pointing out that its next strategy must include new policies and instructions.
