The Central Bank of Iraq (CBI) is not independent from the Iraq government. The CBI has to wait for approval from the government to start printing and issuing the 2013 new Iraq Currency.
The Iraq government will start a education media blitz pertaining to the Iraqi currency. This will begin in late 2012. The Arab Summit, other national meetings and conferences, are taking precedent over the CBI intentions to change the Iraq currency.
The Development Fund for Iraq (DFI) will lose the protection of the U.S. government in 22 May 2012. However, the protection will be extended for another year. This will continue to protect the Iraq funds from outside lawsuits and claims against the Iraqi government.
