The bank’s official also emphasized that the bank supports the initiatives of the Iraq Development Fund and is ready to provide assistance in the form of training and partnership opportunities.

During a meeting on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Al-Sudani discussed JP Morgan’s possible participation in Iraqi efforts to adopt electronic payment applications.

A review of the Central Bank of Iraq (CBI) and JP Morgan’s technological efforts to generate concepts for central banks to trade digital currencies was conducted by the two parties.
