During her recent address to Congress, Janet Yellen, the U.S. Treasury Secretary, expressed the view that the U.S. dollar’s status as a reserve currency may experience a gradual decline. This statement comes at a time when numerous countries, including the BRICS economic bloc, are actively pursuing dedollarization efforts on the global stage.

In contrast to previous remarks on the subject, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen now suggests that we should anticipate a gradual decline in the U.S. dollar’s status as a reserve currency.

During an interview with Reuters, Janet Yellen reiterated her belief in the U.S. dollar’s status as the global reserve currency, expressing confidence in its continued prominence. This sentiment remains unchanged, despite dedollarization efforts undertaken by countries such as China and Russia.
