The BRICS and the Caribbean’s interest

With only a few days left, there has been great anticipation as to the outcome of the 15th BRICS Summit. This historic Summit is scheduled to take place in South Africa August 22- 24, 2023. Almost prematurely, close observers sense major policy changes before the deliberations have begun. Indeed, the Summit will mark the first time the BRICS will meet face to face in person since the desultory impact of COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent global restrictions.

Invitations to attend the summit have been extended to sixty-seven leaders from Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, and Latin America. Also, twenty dignitaries including the Secretary-General of the United Nations, the Chairperson of the African Union Commission, and the President of the New Development Bank have been invited. Business leaders are also expected to be in attendance.
