5th Annual BRICS Conference
Eurasia Center/EBC
May 15 - Monday
9:00 AM
7:00 PM

Please join us for The 5th Annual Doing Business with the BRICS Conference in Washington, DC. The five BRICS countries represent almost 3.6 billion people, with a combined nominal GDP of US$16.6 trillion and an estimated US$4 trillion in combined foreign reserves. Given that 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 22% of the gross world product. These new developments demand better business relations between the BRICS and the United States, as there are a lot of new business opportunities to explore with these nations. A new BRICS Development Bank, now known as the New Development Bank (NDB) has been set up to foster great financial and development cooperation among the five emerging markets with the primary focus of investing in infrastructure and sustained development projects. China, which holds the BRICS presidency in 2017, has also started a massive new Silk Road Economic Belt throughout Eurasia both inland and maritime with a new Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank which will further assist the BRICS.

Panels will address vital topics of business, trade, energy and finance. There will be 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 Russia, India, China, Brazil and South Africa seeking to expand trade, direct investments, business opportunities and open communication. With the 9th BRICS Conference scheduled in September in Xiamen, China, there are many important commercial developments occurring among the BRICS that will stimulate new growth. There will be executives and representatives from US and international corporations as well as government officials.

This BRICS Conference is a perfect opportunity for business development with the largest market areas of the world at one time.
