The political advisor to the Prime Minister, Fadi Al-Shammari, confirmed today, Saturday, that the demand for the official dollar has increased, while he expected it to decrease on the black market in the coming period.

Al-Shammari said in a press statement received by Al-Maalouma, that “the classification of financial institutions in Iraq according to World Bank reports is positive, and the Central Bank’s classification is A++ and exceeds the Emirati classification.”

He added, “Iraq wants to join the international banking system, and on this basis the government has taken positive measures in this regard.”

He confirmed, “The increasing percentage of merchants joining the platform rose from 28% to 78%,” noting that “the demand for the official dollar has increased, and we will witness its decline on the black market in the coming period.”

He pointed out that Iraq agreed “with the US Treasury on a road map that includes a third party represented by an international consulting company to audit the procedures of the sanctioned banks, and its decisions are binding on the US Treasury.”
