Trade & Investment Opportunities

Since its inception, BRICS has been fully committed to the constant expansion and strengthening of trade and investment ties between the 5 nations. BRICS has placed great emphasis on infrastructure development facilitated by the BRICS Development Bank and making full use of the myriad of import and export opportunities presented by the nations’ collaborative efforts. From 2009 to 2015, trade between BRICS countries has increased by 70% and to further increase intra-BRICS trade the group has established a roadmap focused on manufacturing, mining, engineering, energy and other projects. The group is also dedicated to fortifying links between micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME). Ultimately, the trade and investment opportunities associated with BRICS are as vast as they are promising.
