Iran joins growing list of countries to ditch dollar in foreign trade

Iran joins growing list of countries to ditch dollar in foreign trade

“In trade exchanges with foreign countries, Iran uses other currencies, including Chinese yuan, euro, Turkish lira, Russian ruble and South Korean won,” Gholamali Kamyab, CBI deputy head, told the Tasnim state news agency.
 
He added that Iran is considering the possibility of signing bilateral monetary agreements with several countries on the use of other currencies.
 
Kamyab believes bilateral currency swap agreements will ease trade and economic transactions between Iran and other states.
Iran is not the first country to move away from the U.S. dollar. In 2014, Russia and China agreed on swaps and forwards in foreign currencies, a move aimed at reducing the influence of the U.S. dollar and foreign exchange risks.
 
Experts believe the establishment of the BRICS Bank was also a major step towards de-dollarization and reducing Western dominance in the global financial system.
 
The move was made to increase international competition and activate trade and investment cooperation on the world stage.
