Please join us for The 7th Annual Doing Business with the BRICS Conference in Washington, DC. Ambassador Dr. Arikana Chihombori-Quao as the Permanent Representative of the African Union Representational Mission to the United States of America will host this Conference!

The five BRICS countries represent almost 3.6 billion people, with a combined nominal GDP of US$19 trillion and an estimated US$4 trillion in combined foreign reserves. The BRICS nations encompass 30 percent of the world’s territory and 42 percent of the world’s population, over 3 billion people. Together they produce 23% of the gross world product. These new developments demand better business relations between the BRICS and the United States, as there are substantial new business opportunities to explore with these nations. The BRICS Development Bank, now known as the New Development Bank (NDB), based in Shanghai, has just approved US$2 billion in projects set up to foster financial and development cooperation among the five emerging markets with the primary focus of investing in infrastructure and sustained development projects.

China continues to extend its massive Silk Road/Economic Belt Initiative throughout Eurasia both inland and maritime with a new Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank which will further assist the BRICS. The new leadership changes in Brazil and South Africa pointing the way for new progress and business opportunities. Director Charles Egenti, represented The Eurasia Center/EBC at the 10th Annual BRICS Conference in Johannesburg, South Africa, July 2018, which promoted new plans for development in Africa. There are many important commercial developments occurring among the BRICS that will stimulate new growth. Brazil is slated to hold the BRICS presidency in 2019 and will host the next BRICS Conference.

Panels will address vital topics of business, trade, energy and finance, which will cover new business and investment opportunities in the BRICS. The Conference will include presentations on energy and natural resources, high technology, legal changes, mergers and acquisitions, economic development and public support for investments.

This event will allow you and your colleagues to interact with those officials from Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa seeking to expand trade, direct investments, business opportunities and open communication. Our African Director, Charles Egenti, represented There will be executives and representatives from US and international corporations as well as government officials from the BRICS.

India's Red Hot economy has now become the world's fastest growing economy projected to grow at 7.5% in 2019, 7.7% in 2020, as India's Government has loosened regulations on foreign investments. Brazil has come out of recession in 2017 with an increased GDP rate of 1% and is planning important economic reforms. China is promising billions of dollars in tax cuts and infrastructure spending to ensure that its economy grows within the 6-6.5 percent target range. This new stimulus is boosting the Chinese stock market. These and many more important factors point to an interesting BRICS Conference in May!
