SA to host Brics summit
DURBAN is due to host the Brics Summit in March next year.
The Brics nations are Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
The annual summit would be attended by their presidents and government and business delegations.
KwaZulu-Natal premier Zweli Mkhize said the event was an incredible honour, especially since South Africa was the newest member of Brics.
He made the announcement at the annual KwaZulu-Natal Growth Coalition business breakfast in Durban this week.
Department of International Relations spokesman Clayson Monyela said the exact dates of the summit had not yet been finalised.
