JRS reintegration support in Iraq, which is provided locally by the reintegration partner ETTC for cash payments and benefits in kind (Post Arrival and Post Return Package), is no longer provided in U.S. dollars as before, but exclusively in the local currency, the Iraqi dinar. With this measure, the Iraqi central government aims to support the Iraqi dinar currency and the national economy.
