ArmInfo. The gross international reserves of Armenia for 2019 increased by 25.7%, reaching $ 2.840 billion. This is evidenced by the data of the Central Bank of  Armenia. Of these, the lion's share - $ 2.834 billion falls on  external assets in FCC (freely convertible currency), and the share  of SDR in the IMF amounted to $ 6.2 million. According to the  regulator's report, over the year, foreign assets in FCC increased by  25.8%, and the share of SDR - by 3%.

In the Q4 of 2019 alone, gross international reserves grew by 18%,  with an increase in FCC at 17.7% and a jump in the share of SDR in  the IMF 9-fold. In previous quarters, the dynamics was as follows: in  the Q3, international reserves grew by 8.4%, with an increase in  foreign assets in FCC by 9% and a decrease in the share of SDR in the  IMF by 94.1%; in the Q2, an increase in international reserves by  3.2% was accompanied by a 2.8% increase in FCC and a jump in the  share of SDR in the IMF 5.5 fold; In the Q1, the 4.8% decline in  international reserves was triggered by a decrease in foreign assets  in FCC by 4.6% and the share of SDR in the IMF by 64.7%.

In December 2019, gross international reserves increased by 19.6%,  and in their structure almost the same growth was observed for  external assets in FCC - by 19.7%, while the share of SDR in the IMF  fell by 12.9%.

During 2019, the upward dynamics of the gross international reserves  was observed in February-March, June, August-October and December,  similar to the periods of growth of foreign assets in FCC, and the  share of SDRs in the IMF only jumped in May and October.
