The books, used and new, have nominal prices to get people to read and they vary from around half a Jordanian dinar

RAMALLAH, August 24, 2007 (WAFA) -- There is no shortage in the US dollar or Jordanian dinar
currencies in the Palestinian market, Governor of the Palestinian Monetary Authority (PMA) Azzam Shawa said on Thursday.
In a bid to increase the attractiveness of the Jordanian dinar
, the Central bank of Jordan (CBJ) decided to raise interest rate on overnight window deposits in Jordanian dinars
by 75 basis points
Palestine does not yet have a national currency and instead uses the Israeli shekel, Jordanian dinar
and US dollar in daily transactions.
For his part, General Director of the Kuwaiti Society for Relief Abdulaziz Al-Obaid, also member of the Higher Committee, told KUNA that the Awqaf Foundation had allocated 250,000 Jordanian Dinar
(USD 350,000) for the basic aid to be offered to Syrians in the Kingdom.
Following the appointment, Standard Chartered will be Euroclear Bank's cash clearing bank for the Arab Emirates Dirham (AED), Bahraini Dinar (BHD), Jordanian Dinar
(JOD), Omani Riyal (OMR) and Qatar Riyal (QAR) currencies.
The prime minister assured that the Jordanian Dinar
is strong and that foreign currency reserves are "enough and are in good condition", but added that the national economy is facing challenges that necessitate fiscal reform to rejuvenate the economy and strengthen resilience.
While it is easy to make some changes in the use of other currencies such as the US dollar or the Jordanian dinar
, it is impossible to totally abandon the Israeli currency, the source said.
The Jordanian dinar
(JOD), however, has been pegged to the US dollar since 1995.
