BRICS Nations Discussing New Global Currency

The BRICS nations – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – are exploring the feasibility of creating a new global currency to reduce reliance on the US dollar. South Africa’s foreign minister Naledi Pandor stresses the need for careful discussion before making any decisions regarding a new currency.

Careful Discussion Needed

Minister Pandor acknowledges that there must be consideration of both advantages and disadvantages when deciding on a new currency and highlights the complexities involved in implementing such an economic change. She also expresses caution but recognizes the value of open discussions with all countries involved.

Interest Beyond Current Members

Interest in joining the BRICS group extends beyond its current members; more than a dozen countries including Saudi Arabia, Iran, Argentina, United Arab Emirates and others have expressed interest in participating in these discussions as well.

Russia’s Approach

Russia’s approach appears to be less cautious than that of South Africa; Anatoly Aksakov Chairman of State Duma Committee on Financial Market reveals that negotiations for a new currency could potentially launch this year.


The exploration into creating an alternative global currency reflects growing sentiment among economically-aligned nations to seek alternatives and disconnect from the US dollar. While further deliberation is needed before any decisions can be made, it is clear that these discussions will bring about significant economic changes if successful.
