On the occasion of the end of 2021, and in view of the special and new circumstances that our beloved country is going through due to the interactions with the formation of the new government after the approval of the election results by the Federal Court and the legitimate popular demands for change and economic and financial reform and because our banks are the first basic link in the national economy, we must clarify the results by analysis and evaluation The priority for banking activity in 2021.

And the implementation of the Payments Department's proposal to expand the provision of banking services and reach the smallest administrative unit at the level of all governorates.

The banks’ completion of their plans for 2022 in accordance with the above visions requires them, under the supervision and control of the Central Bank, to work in quick steps, which is to move the Iraqi banking sector to a sober and developed economic sector that is committed to international regulations, rules and standards for compliance, combating money laundering, financial reporting and risk management, and thus moving from the role of banking to a developmental role Contribute to revitalizing the economic cycle by activating and supporting the financing of small and medium projects and large development projects, through which the building of a solid national economy and sustainable development is achieved, ultimately serving the Iraqi people and their aspirations for a better life.This requires that each bank have a plan with specific goals for 2022 in the areas of technical development and work in accordance with international standards to achieve financial inclusion, attract deposits, work on capacity-building, train and qualify human resources, achieve the goal of investing in human capital and develop the structural structure of the banking sector, in addition to the banks paying attention By applying the financial stability criteria, which are indicators of financial safety such as the capital adequacy ratio, the liquidity ratio, the profitability ratio such as the ratio of profit and net profit to capital, the ratio of return on assets, the ratio of return on shareholders’ equity, the ratio of activity costs, financial leverage and the ratio of investment of funds in addition to the adoption of indicators for measuring performance efficiency and the creation of statistical units Studies, analysis and financial forecasting to indicate monthly, quarterly and annual deviations in the drawn plans.

This requires the government and the Central Bank to support the banks and enable them to continue banking activity, and to implement the decisions of the Council of Ministers and the Economic Affairs Committee related to revitalizing banking work, especially in the field of credit, bank financing, loans and banking facilities, and giving a key role to private banks and their involvement in making central economic decisions.
