BRICS Announces Increased De-Dollarization in 2024

For much of the last year, the BRICS economic alliance has facilitated a massive global shift. Indeed, countries like China have sought to decrease the international prevalence of the US dollar. Specifically, they have sought increased gold holdings and local currency promotion for this purpose.

Russia and China have already ditched the greenback in 90% of their dealings. However, the BRICS alliance has announced there will be even more de-dollarization in 2024. Specifically, Iran recently discussed the development of infrastructure to support the transition.

Iran was one of the five countries that joined the bloc in its inaugural expansion plan. Specifically, it arrived alongside Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Egypt, and Ethiopia. Moreover, the country recently noted its work alongside Russia on a BRICS native currency.

Through its recent policies post-BRICS admission, Iran has fully committed to the abandonment of the US dollar. Now, it appears as though a massive aspect of the bloc’s continued growth Is establishing similar commitments from every alliance member.

With the 2024 economic alliance summit nearing, it is likely that the bloc will introduce even more countries into its ranks. Indeed, the geopolitical sector is expecting another expansion initiative that introduces 5–6 new BRICS members.

The expanded de-dollarization plan will only be strengthened by these new participants. Moreover, any native currency development will also benefit from more countries taking part in its testing and integration on a global scale.
