Lorena1972: Good afternoon everyone! Just a little tidbit! I was just at Wells and I asked the teller if she had heard any updates on the pending revaluation of some currencies? She told me that she had heard about it but had not received any new updates....This was a bank in Florida! At least they are not saying this is a scam.
Harambe: Reuters: Cleric Sadr backs Iraq protests, calls for delay in government formation ... BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Shi’ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, whose political bloc won Iraq’s May 12 election, called on all politicians to delay efforts to form a new government until the demands of protesters seeking better services in the south are met. https://reut.rs/2LsCuvz

Samson: Vietnam should reform amidst strong growth, says IMF
19th July, 2018
Việt Nam should undertake more ambitious reforms to tackle remaining distortions and capacity constraints, increase investment and reduce the external surplus amidst strong economic growth, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) recommended in its 2018 Article IV consultation with Việt Nam released recently.
According to the IMF, Việt Nam’s strong economic momentum is expected to continue in 2018, aided by the reform push, higher potential output, the global recovery and commitment to macroeconomic and financial stability.
“Growth is projected at 6.6 per cent in 2018, despite a mild tightening in credit growth targets and a neutral fiscal stance. Inflation is forecast to rise to just under the 4 per cent target, led by higher oil prices and gradual increases in administered prices. “On current trends and if reforms continue at their current pace, 6.5 per cent annual growth remains feasible beyond 2018,” IMF’s analysts noted.

and perhaps useful to mention here that the IMF is currently adopting what is known as the composite index of foreign reserves without regard to the absolute size of what exists, and by calculating this index in Iraq, it is estimated at (169%) and this confirms adequacy Foreign Reserves. Yeh we have.
