The five-yearly review of the Special Drawing Rights (SDR) currency basket is underway at the International Monetary Fund where the executive board of the institution is expected to decide on the composition of the currency basket later this year. Whether the Chinese renminbi will be included in the SDR currency basket is on the mind of policy-makers and market participants around the world. How will the process unfold and what are the prospects of including a new currency into the SDR currency basket?
