The EUR/USD pair is firmly established as the favoured settlement currency for export contracts, but is this the best option for settlements? Does it take into account all the risks of the modern economy? Would a transition to a multicurrency system for settlements be an effective step towards protecting national interests on international markets? What is the potential share of settlements in national currencies as a proportion of external trade? Participants in global trade should be asking the following questions: what will happen if this is not achieved over the next 3 years, and what will be the consequences for national exporters?
