BRICS Trade & Economics Research Network Newsletter

Written by CUTS International

In November 2011, a group of five like-mentioned organisations from among the BRICS group of countries came together in Shanghai, China to establish the BRICS Trade & Economics Research Network. They are: Fundação Getulio Vargas, Brazil; EcoAccord, Russia; CUTS International, India; Shanghai WTO Affairs Consultation Center, China; and South African Institute of International Affairs, South Africa.

CUTS International has taken lead in producing a quarterly newsletter of this Network, covering news on the BRICS group of countries on issues such as trade, investment. Research and networking activities of BRICS-TERN partners are also covered.

The cover story of the current issue titled “A New Global Financial Architecture in the Making” states that BRICS countries have garnered much attention over the last few months and the sixth BRICS Summit will prove whether there is indeed a future for this country grouping. It is expected that at the July Summit the group of emerging economies will have concluded all the preparatory work for setting up the BRICS Development Bank and Contingency Reserve Arrangement (CRA).
