Removing Zeros From Iraq’s Currency Requires ‘Consultation’

According to media reports, Iraq’s Central Bank said on Tuesday that the decision to remove the three zeros from the Iraqi currency would require consultation with the next government.

Quoting a consultant refered to as Mohammed Saleh, the report says that deleting three zeros from the currency would negatively affect Iraqi citizens, but would facilitate foreign exchange transactions and bank deposit and withdrawal.

Iraq Business News was unable to independently verify these reports.
