South Africa, which took over the rotational chairship of the emerging economies grouping Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (BRICS), is set to host the 10th summit in July.
The summit, which is scheduled from 25 – 27 July at the Sandton Convention Centre, will see South Africa building on the programme of development and prosperity for partner countries.
South Africa says the summit, which will be attended by Heads of State from the grouping, will be an important milestone towards building stronger solidarity and cooperation among emerging markets.
“BRICS is an important global formation and South Africa is privileged to host the summit the second time around, as we enter the second decade cooperation. We have been meeting in summit form for nine years now and this will be the 10th session.
“The first summit we hosted in 2013 was very successful with very tangible outcomes and the results of that summit are visible in the work of the BRICS and the global community and we are confident that this summit will also follow suit,” BRICS Sous-Sherpa, Anil Sooklal, said.
