The 10th BRICS Summit, which took place in Johannesburg from the 25th to the 27th of July, has been hailed as a huge success by President Cyril Ramaphosa.
“We have come to the end of the BRICS Summit, which has been hugely successful. We as South Africa are very pleased with the way the BRICS summit succeeded in achieving the many objectives we had in mind. It was one of the most well-organised summits as articulated by the heads of state from the BRICS countries,” Ramaphosa said.

The three-day summit brought together leaders who represent 40% of the world’s population and 22% of the world’s GDP.

Among the positions taken, Ramaphosa said the BRICS grouping took a fairly firm stance against protectionism and “felt the need to do everything to protect the multilateral system which is now under attack”.

Commitment to the multilateral trading system was reaffirmed by the bloc which spoke against protectionism and called for openness and multilateralism.

“We confirmed our commitment to the World Trade Organisation, as the most effective mechanism available to ensure that a rules based transparent, non-discriminatory, open and inclusive multilateral trading system,” he said.
