    Then, and now...

    Then...
    FATF President...
    Mr. Marshall Billingslea of the United States assumed the position of President of the FATF on 1 July 2018.
    Mr. Billingslea serves as the US Department of the Treasury’s Assistant Secretary heading the Office of Terrorist Financing and Financial Crimes. In this role he is responsible for policy development and international engagement pertaining to anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism.


    Now...

    Iran’s state arbitration body has approved a bill to amend Iran’s anti-money laundering law in compliance with the Financial Action Task Force guidelines, pushing Iran closer to meeting the requirements for getting out of the global standard setter’s black list. Gholamreza Mesbahi Moqaddam, a member of the Expediency Council, told Fars News Agency on Saturday the body had accepted the parliament’s view on some cases and admitted GC’s stance in the others. The council is in charge of settling differences between the parliament and the GC, the legislative watchdog. The member said the bill will be sent to Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani to be submitted to the government. Iran’s accession to the FATF Iran’s accession to the G7-created FATF has faced obstacles in recent months, mainly over concerns among some officials that the move could endanger Iran’s national security interests. This is while proponents of the FATF accession say the measure would smooth the path for Iran’s increased financial transactions with the world and allow Iranian financial sector to function more easily in the international economy. Out of four parliamentary bills required for Iran’s accession to the global anti-money laundering body, only the first one has so far went into effect and the fate of other three were in limbo.

    Yes, I did promise a new thread for the New year, but this just fit too well with an item from the end of last year. True Power (FATF). So you can get with that, or you can get this...

    DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran’s central bank has proposed slashing four zeros from the rial, state news agency IRNA reported on Sunday, after the currency plunged in a year marked by an economic crisis fuelled by U.S. sanctions.
    your choice guys, your neighbor Iraq has already decided.

    Recent actions

    On 12/23/18, Kuwait and Iraq announced the choice of a consultant to guide development of shared border oil fields. They were very careful not to name the firm, and I haven't found that listed anywhere. The coordination to keep a lid on that information between the parties involved is not normal. which leads to the latest 2019 observations concerning the CBI Governer's meeting with companies involved with foreign currency purchasing...

    quite a dry spell for sure! at the end of Feb. I could look at my post, but couldn't post. later, once I signed in, there'd be a string ????!!!!!! and stuff like that, strange. so things look stable now, and if I drop off the map again, know it'll be due to access issues.
    I'm looking forward to seeing if the synchronized Feb. moves bring results. definitely the right mix coming together then.

    Doing what works

    Qatar open to accepting all currencies for trade - finance minister

    DOHA (Reuters) - Qatar is open to accepting all currencies for trade though the dollar will still dominate, Finance Minister Ali al-Emadi told a conference in Doha on Saturday.
    The comment at the Doha Forum came in response to a question about whether Qatar, one of the world largest exporters of liquefied natural gas (LNG), was prepared to accept other currencies in LNG trade.
    “We are very much open to all currencies,” al-Emadi said on a joint panel with U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. The finance ministry clarified the comment was referring to broader trade rather than LNG specifically.

    “If you look at Qatar, as I said, most of our economy is dollarized, based on our export of energy,” he said.
    “But if you look at the way that the financial markets are structured, we are open for all currencies. We have the remnimbis, we have the euros, we have the sterlings, but the domination is for dollars,” the minister added. “For us in Qatar, the currency has been pegged to the dollar for decades. It fits our economy and it seems that it’s working very well for us.
    “When you have a country having 25% of the global GDP, their currency, whether we like it or not, will dominate and that’s a fact.”

    this is true of all gulf, as well as non gulf oil exporters. I think Iraq will find that the same dynamic works best for them, and will propose, then have the IMF concur on a par value based on some type of currency weighting. The currencies used would be given weights based on their largest source of income, currency they wish to have the highest reserve in, and currency volume used in local cross border trades.

    As Admin, it stands to reason that you have some control over what ads show up in each section/post. If the ump is on a roll shows up where I post, that's my last post. I have stayed Apolitical during my time here, but will not be associated with anyone who says John McCain is not a great American because he got caught. That assertion, made by a card carrying draft dodging Coward. Then, he follows that statement up by executive order saying POW/MIA flags be flown with the Flag of the United States of America. All POWS chose to serve, fought, and were caught, the same as John McCain. Until this is fixed, signing off,
