CBI Announced new Retail Payment System to Control Market

A senior economist Hamam Al-Shamma warned the results of imposing the decision of Iraqi Council of Representatives to stop the Iraqi Central Bank to prevent the banks operating in the Kurdistan region and banks with branches in the Kurdish region from selling foreign currencies. Al-Shamma said in a press statement that the decision of CBI has been considered one of the most critical types for economic restrictions. It would harm the life of Kurdistan citizens and impose the condition of food shortage due to the negative impact on the trade and supply of goods to the Kurdistan region. There will be a rise in the exchange rate in the parallel market in the region and in the Iraqi markets. He stressed to be cool & calm not to be dragged into intensification and putting the Iraqi interest above entire considerations.
