И ещё внезапное из Китая о включении юаня в SDR, со ссылкой на сентябрьские разговоры в штатах.
"China is going all out to address as many concerns that have been raised in the report as possible," said Nicholas Lardy, senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE), a Washington D.C.-based think tank. The "report" mentioned by Lardy is an initial SDR review prepared by the IMF staff in August, which looked into the internationalization of the renminbi as well as related progresses and concerns in China's financial market reforms. [...] "I think it's quite likely when the vote occurs sometime next month that the renminbi will become the fifth currency in the basket," said Lardy.
During Chinese President Xi Jinping's visit to the Untied States at the end of September, the US side reiterated its support for the inclusion of the renminbi in the SDR basket. Edwin Truman, another PIIE expert and former US Treasury official, told Xinhua that the US means "exactly what it says." "If the IMF staff conclude that the renminbi is eligible, the US will support the inclusion. At this point I think that there is a high probability that the recommendation will be to include the renminbi in the basket," said Truman. [...]
This year's review is expected to be completed in November 2015 when the IMF board will decide whether the renminbi will be included in the SDR basket or not.
