Untitled Document http://brics2016.gov.in

The BRICS countries label refers to a select group of five large, developing countries (Brazil, Russia, India,  China and South Africa). The five BRICS countries are distinguished from a host of other promising emerging markets by their demographic and economic potential to rank among the world’s largest and most influential economies in the 21st century (and by having a reasonable chance of realizing that potential).  Together, the five BRICS countries comprise more than 2.8 billion people or 40 percent of the world's population and about 30 percent of the world’s GDP.

South Africa was invited to join the BRIC bloc on 24 December 2010 and on 14 April 2011, South African President Jacob Zuma attended the third BRICS Summit in Sanya, China.

India assumed the BRICS Chairmanship from the Russian Federation for the year 2016.  The Hon’ble External Affairs Minister officially unveiled the BRICS Logo for India’s Chairmanship and launched the BRICS website (http://brics2016.gov.in) at a ceremony organized in New Delhi on 22nd March, 2016. The next 8th BRICS Summit will be hosted by India under its Chairmanship in October, 2016.
