In the taxi on my way to school this morning, I happened to hear that the renminbi has been "included in the basket". Did you hear about it? What does that mean?
ō ，nǐ shuō de shì IMF yú dāngdì shíjiān shí yīyuè sānshí zài Měiguó bǎ rénmínbì nàrù SDR huòbì lánzi de shìr ba 。
Oh, you're talking about the decision by the IMF to include the renminbi in the SDR basket on January 30 US local time.

What does SDR stand for? Is it an abbreviation of the Chinese for Shandong people? Can you explain what the English means? I told you before that I was taught English by a physical education teacher.

Ha, I remember, I remember, sorry. IMF stands for the International Monetary Fund, and within that there are special drawing rights, or SDR, also referred to as the currencies basket.
