chattels Timing of 2020 census bodes ill for Kurds in Iraq https://www.rudaw.net/english/opinion/12092019
chattels The upcoming census will be held in accordance with a 2008 census law, which originally decreed for the census to be held between 2009 and 2010.
chattels But in a country like Iraq, where everything has become politicized, holding a census at this stage of growing instability has a political dimension, and this move has generated concerns among Kurds.
Even the UNFPA, which works with the Iraqi government's statistics center as a consultancy agency, has attributed any chance for success of the looming census to a stable political and security atmosphere in the country.
chattels Will holding the census impede any just resolution of Kurdish question in Iraq?
chattels It can only be done through a swift resolution and normalization of areas disputed or otherwise, so that in addition to Kurds displaced from Kirkuk, displaced people from other parts of Iraq can return home.

chattels IF THE SAUDIS CANNOT PROTECT THEIR INVESTMENT INFRASTRUCTURE NEXT DOOR TO IRAQ THEN HOW OR WHY WOULD ANY BUSINESS BELIEVE THAT THEIR INVESTMENT IN IRAQ COULD BE SAFE ?
chattels Increasingly it is difficult not to conclude that any return on our investment in Iraqi currency will require a " Deus Ex Machina " event.
chattels And that's the way that it is from the news that I read out of Iraq on this Sunday, September 15, 2019. Have a fine day all.
foxmulder chattels have a good day your self !
xyz BIG BOYS TALK, YOU MUST LISTEN JEJEJE ................ 9-15-2019 Newshound Guru Kaperoni ...guru Frank26 likes to refer to a minister of planning document talking about a 1 to $1 exchange rate.
But it never said it would get there overnight! And as I've already said on numerous occasions Iraq could never afford a significant RV of the dinar due to the fact that there is in excess 42 trillion dinar in circulation. If the minister of planning was talking about an overnight event, it would have to be a LOP.
The only thing that we should be hoping for is a gradual appreciation as stated by the IMF. Such an event like this would allow the money supply to be reduced as the currency appreciated

Opposition invites Abdul Mahdi on the Ministry of Education
Zig"Tebow" AND he (Kaperoni) failed to notice the CBI said no float"...................Kap sent me this recently replying to that and similar posts......................"Kaperoni" ...First of all Zig, there have been many discussions about a float over the years from the CBI, and economic experts in Iraq. Many of them positive. One of which was discussed even recently.
A year or so ago when somebody asked the CBI about floating the currency their response was that they weren't going to float "AT THIS TIME" and it was taken out of context as if they were saying no float ever.
But that's not the truth, the truth is they were not ready to float at that time and proper translation of the article was necessary because all countries float eventually especially Emerging Markets. And there have been many examples of countries moving from fixed to float over the last few years. Even several in the Middle East"
spankie Zig i believe the start rate for that float will be way above where it is now and then float as other currencies. If they do not change the value 40 tril or so in circulation will be nothing- china has 195 tril yuan out

xyz The Central Bank holds a workshop in preparation for the classification of banks operating in Iraq internationally
As part of the efforts of the Central Bank of Iraq to develop the performance of banks and keep them in line with international standards, this bank held a workshop on the requirements of classification of banks operating in Iraq by international agencies.
The workshop included assessment requirements from international rating agencies, most notably:
- Challenges faced by banks to prepare evaluation within international standards.
- The positive impact of the evaluation with international banking relations and correspondent banks.
- The impact of evaluation in increasing the principle of transparency of shareholders and the application of corporate governance.
- Risk assessment of banks in neutral terms and its importance in correcting gaps and increasing future hedges.
It is noteworthy that the Board of Directors of the Central Bank of Iraq approved in its resolution No. (113) of 2019 to the adoption of international credit rating agencies for banks operating in Iraq and work from 2020.

- Iraqi Deputy Parliament Speaker Bashir Haddad received a Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) delegation, headed by the head of the Department of Foreign Relations (DFR) Safin Dzayi, to discuss closer cooperations between Erbil and Baghdad.
During the meeting, Haddad pointed out that there is progress in the relations between the Kurdistan Region and Iraq as the two sides have continued their meetings and visits in hopes of resolving the remaining disputes between Erbil and Baghdad.
The officials exchanged views on a range of issues pertaining to cooperations between Erbil and Baghdad and ways to further strengthen the ties between the sides based on the Iraqi Constitution, according to a press release by Haddad's office.
The Kurdistan Region has expressed concerns over a census planned to be held across Iraq next year, demanding article 140 to be addressed before the census, especially in the disputed areas.
xyz Iraqi Health Minister Resigns
ERBIL — Iraq’s Health Minister Alaa al-Alwan announced his official resignation on Sunday after alleged political pressure and defamatory attempts against him.
According to the Ministry of Health, Alwan handed in his resignation to Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi for the second time on 12 September.
His first resignation in March was rejected by PM Abdul-Mahdi. Back then, he cited “excessive pressure” as the reason for his resignation.
“Sadly, we are still exposed to a wide spectrum of... blackmail and misinformation in order to offend and distort the facts. This has reached a level that hinders the work of the ministry and undermines the chances of success of its programs for reform,” Kurdistan 24 quoted a letter by Alwan.
“I deeply regret reaching the firm conviction that we cannot continue to work under these circumstances,” he continued, stressing that, this time, his resignation was irreversible.

I am not going to waste my time on half an hour of Youtube video. If there was a specific point regarding the Zimbabwe currency you would need to explain what you mean. As far as I am aware this was the latest statement from Zimbabwe.
"HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabwe has declared its interim currency, the RTGS dollar, the country’s sole legal tender with effect from Monday, according to a government notice published on Monday.
“The British pound, United States dollar, South African rand Botswana pula and any other foreign currency whatsoever shall no longer be legal tender alongside the Zimbabwe dollar in any transactions in Zimbabwe,” the notice said."
