The International Monetary Fund allocates $650 billion to revive the global economy

On August 2, the IMF’s Board of Governors approved a general distribution of the equivalent of $650 billion in Special Drawing Rights units (456 billion units) to its members, to support global liquidity.

Fund member countries will receive special drawing rights in proportion to their existing quotas in the fund.

Of the allocated funds, $275 billion went to developing countries, of which $25 billion went to members of the CIS (member states of the former Soviet Union) and Georgia, from which Russia received $17.5 billion.

According to a report published by “Reuters” agency yesterday, Yemen will get about $665 million from the fund’s reserves.

“Tomorrow all IMF member countries will receive their new allocations of Special Drawing Rights (SDRs). Countries must use these allocations responsibly and wisely for the benefit of all citizens,” the fund said in a tweet yesterday on the eve of the distribution.

The distribution aims to address the world’s long-term need for reserves, and help countries weather the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Regarding the advantages of distribution, the Fund explained in a group of tweets that distribution opens the way for financing expenditures that help people to overcome the crisis, and it also enhances the reserves of member countries in the Fund, as well as supports the reforms of member countries.

The Special Drawing Rights (SDR) is an international interest-bearing reserve asset created by the Fund in 1969, as a complement to other reserve assets of member countries.

The value of the Special Drawing Right (SDR) is determined according to a basket of five currencies (the US dollar, the euro, the Chinese yuan, the Japanese yen and the British pound).
