Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction: April 2012 Quarterly Report

HAT TIP: The Currency News Hound


Good evening friends!

We just saw this article from Currency News Hound and wanted to share!

What is intriguing about this is the acknowledgement that the IQD could be worth around $1…..

We still hold with our opinion that the rate will be around $3.32, this based on what Dr. Shabibi has been quoted as saying in the past.

But, if it were to only be at $1.00 to a IQD Dinar, well, we will certainly be grateful and feel blessed that our journey is finally, after all this time, OVER!!!! 😉

SIGIR Mission Statement
Regarding U.S. relief and reconstruction plans, programs, and operations in Iraq,
the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction provides independent and objective:
· oversight and review through comprehensive audits, inspections, and investigations
· advice and recommendations on policies to promote economy, effi ciency, and effectiveness
· prevention, detection, and deterrence of fraud, waste, and abuse
· information and analysis to the Congress, the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense,
and the American people

Excerpt:
The CBI’s base policy rate held steady at 6% for the eighth consecutive quarter, and theofficial exchange rate for Iraqi dinar strengthened marginally against the U.S. dollar, selling at 1,166 per dollar through much of the quarter. That rate is down slightly from 1,170—a level that had held constant for the past three years. However, a spike in demand for dollars generated by merchants from neighboring Iran and Syria—suddenly unable to procure sufficient amounts of the U.S. currency at home because of international sanctions helped drive the unofficial street exchange rate above 1,320 dinar in mid-April.

In April 2012, the CoM postponed indefinitely plans for a currency reform that would have removed three zeros from the Iraqi dinar in 2013 and required the issuance of new currency notes. The reform would have made the dinar’s value slightly less than $1. It is currently worth less than one- tenth of a cent.
