China Suggests Switch From Dollar
News From Around the World
Tuesday, March 24, 2009
China has long been uneasy about relying on the dollar for trade and to store its reserves and recently expressed concerns that Washington's efforts to rescue the US economy could erode the value of the currency.
Mr Zhou said the dollar could eventually be replaced as the world's main reserve currency by the Special Drawing Right (SDR), which was created as a unit of account by the IMF in 1969.
"The role of the SDR has not been put into full play, due to limitations on its allocation and the scope of its uses," he said.
"However, it serves as the light in the tunnel for the reform of the international monetary system."
