South Africa: BRICS summit ends Friday

Johannesburg – The 10th BRICS Summit, which dealt with economic cooperation and development issues for three days, ends Friday at the Sandton Conference Center with a meeting between the leaders of the group and African statesmen.

Since July 25, participants at the Summit have been discussing hot issues such as industrialization, new technologies, inclusive growth and peacekeeping.

At the meeting were invited several African leaders, including Angola’s Presidents JoAPound o Lourenco and Mozambique’s Filipe Nyusi, with whom the BRICS will reflect on the role of Africa and the opportunities for integration.

The agenda of work to which Angop had access indicates that JoAPound o Lourenco must speak in a five-minute speech to present the vision of Angola on Africa and the BRICS, a group that represents around 23 percent of world GDP.

This 10th BRICS Summit has been dominated, among other issues, by the problems of the commercial war between the United States of America and China, considered the two main world economic powers.
