les principaux pays émergents du BRICS ,le Brésil, la Russie, l'Inde et l'Afrique du Sud ont signé un accord permettant d'utiliser leurs propres devises, au lieu du $, pour toutes les opérations de crédit ou de subventions
c'est le 1er accord de ce genre ... et c'est d'autant plus important que les BRICS détiennnent 40% des réserves monétaires mondiales , dont la majorité est encore en $ BRICS credit: Local currencies to replace dollar
ANYA: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa - the BRICS group of fastest growing economies - Thursday signed an agreement to use their own currencies instead of the predominant US dollar in issuing credit or grants to each other.
The agreement, the first-of-its-kind, was signed at the 3rd BRICS summit here attended by Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, China's Hu Jintao, Brazil's Dilma Rousseff, Russia's Dmitry Medvedev and South Africa's Jacob Zuma.
"Our designated banks have signed a framework agreement on financial cooperation which envisages grant of credit in local currencies and cooperation in capital markets and other financial services," Manmohan Singh told reporters at a news conference with other BRICS leaders.
But the agreement is confined to credit and not trade. BRICS economies hold 40 percent of the world's currency reserves, the majority of which is still in US dollars.
The BRICS summit is being held in the coastal city of Sanya in China's Hainan island.
The joint presser was held after the leaders held deliberations on the international situation, and financial, development, climate and security issues.
Manmohan Singh said: "We have had very fruitful discussions. We have reviewed the international situation, discussed international economic, financial and trade issues, the challenges of sustainable development, food security, energy security and climate change."
The grouping is significant because it is expected to have a healthy global presence in the future as the member-countries are the fastest growing economies and are projected to contribute 48 percent to the global economy in the next decade.
At present they account for 40 percent of the world's population and 20 percent of the global Gross Domestic Product (GDP). http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/economy/policy/brics-credit-local-currencies-to-replace-dollar/articleshow/7979273.cms

Ahead of BRICS Meeting, China Targets Dollar Power

Ahead of the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, China, India and South Africa) summit in its resort town of Sanya next week, China has put India and some of the other participants in a spot by proposing an agreement between the EXIM and development banks of all five countries to enable trade in local currencies instead of the US dollar.
The move is being seen as a clear affront to the US, one which was first attempted through an understanding between China and Russia during the height of the economic crisis two years ago. While the Reserve Bank of India is examining the proposal, sources said, India is unlikely to agree to give its consent in a hurry.
In fact, other countries like Brazil and South Africa are also likely to have serious questions because just like India, they are also major trading partners of the US. Given that any such arrangement would largely translate into a Yuan trade due to China??s economic predominance, the concern in New Delhi is that it should not get caught up in Chinese efforts to outdo the US.
