The economic affairs specialist, Muhammad Ali al-Moussawi, explained that the current year's budget may be approved at an amount of 135 trillion dinars, pointing out that
the dollar exchange rate needs to be modified according to what the next government sees.
Al-Moussawi told "Information", "The budget may be approved in the amount of 135 trillion dinars, but
the dollar exchange rate may be subject to the policy of the next government and what it desires, at a time when total public spending reaches 130 trillion dinars."
He added that "the price of a barrel of oil, and according to what has been achieved from revenues and a rise in prices, may be put in the budget by more than 60 dollars per barrel, as this is appropriate in light of the developments in prices and the increase in production decided by OPEC."
And he indicated that "the adjustment of the dollar exchange rate has become an urgent need, as this requires a move from the next government, and the support of some ministries in order to reduce the suffering of the poor classes, especially since the opportunity is ripe for that." finished 25
