    Wrote central bank governor and finance minister in the letter say "at a time when our financial needs will continue in 2010, large Fsnazz our efforts to mobilize domestic financing through the market of treasury bonds.

    "To this end we will hold auctions periodically and will abstain in the suppression, while we allow that the market is set for interest rates. This would have the additional benefits of identifying a key interest rate, while allowing the development of a secondary market for treasury bonds to banks to improve their management of liquidity."

    They said that the country is planning to develop a sales tax "in the coming years."

    The letter said that the gross domestic product of Iraq has increased four percent in 2009 compared with almost ten percent in the previous year. He said GDP growth would increase to about seven percent this year and between 7.5 and eight percent in 2011 and 2012.

    The letter said "to improve the performance of foreign exchange auctions intend to develop markets outside the Exchange organization's central bank, including the foreign exchange market between banks.

    "Our goal is to establish a futures market on the Iraqi dinar in the near future."
