Amidst China’s growing influence, 155 countries are considering adopting the Yuan for trade, potentially diminishing the US Dollar’s dominance. A huge revolution is about to occur in the global financial scene. Many countries are thinking of a massive shift in their trade strategies led by China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). This refers to the possibility of changing the USD (US Dollar) with CNY (Chinese Yuan) in foreign trade deals. BRI was formed in 2013 as an infrastructure development scheme and a way for China to increase its global economic impact.
China’s massive investment may influence this possible currency change in developmental initiatives in countries such as Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and others in Africa. Due to the BRI initiative, some of these initiatives could soon make the Yuan the preferred currency in international trade instead of the USD.
Redefining Trade With the Digital Yuan
The emergence of China’s DIGITAL Yuan as a CBDC has further triggered the momentum towards using the YUAN instead of the US Dollar in international trade. In preparation for the Chinese digital currency release, it can become an important aspect of many transactions within BRI projects. It may change the structure of the world trading system. For example, when countries debt-ridden by China pay back their loans, the money is denominated in the Yuan instead of the dollar, changing the fabric of trade and financing.
Such a move would be highly costly for America in terms of changing its economic stability paradigm from USD to Yuan. It can change the change of balance of trade, levels of reserves, and overall layout of the international economy. In addition, China’s emerging might as an economic nation may enable it to decrease its dependence on USD for foreign transactions.
The Future of Global Finance
A scenario that may pose a serious threat to the USD’s leadership status is if the Yuan gains acceptance among 155 countries worldwide and becomes the preferred reserve currency. The surge of Yuan in global transactions may impact international trade, global financial markets, and monetary policy.
