South Africa is ready to host the 10th BRICS Summit, the group made up of the world’s major emerging economies that carry out 17 percent of global trade, in Johannesburg this week.
When taking over the rotating presidency of the group, made up of Brazil, India, Russia, China and South Africa, the government in Pretoria is promoting a series of initiatives to be carried out during its mandate to focus on national priorities and the member countries’ respective interests against unemployment, poverty and inequality in those societies.
The BRICS Summit will take place from July 25-27 under the motto ‘BRICS in Africa: Collaboration for Inclusive Growth and Shared Prosperity in the Fourth Industrial Revolution’.
According to the South African ambassador before the group, Anil Sookal, debates will focus on the Fourth Industrial Revolution and ‘how the way we are living and working is changing’, keeping peace and the creation of a Forum of Women from those countries.
The Summit will not be mere talk and will be decisive in the specific sector of development of the BRICS economies, said the diplomat, for whom the impressive implementation rate of the group’s goals is a good prediction for the regional economies.
The event will open on Wednesday at the level of officials, will continue on Thursday with a meeting of foreign ministers and will end on Friday with a meeting of heads of State and Government.
In addition, to the heads of State and Government from Brazil, India, China, Russia and South Africa, other African leaders have been invited.
