Brics membership boosts South Africa's global standing
DATE: 1 August 2013
For a young adult, South Africa has definitely left its mark in the world. In December 2010, the then 16-year-old country was invited to join the Bric bloc, resulting in Brics. And as the country approaches its 20th birthday, it has shown that it is a powerhouse in the making.
The country’s hosting of the Fifth Brics summit in Durban earlier this year, has raised the country’s standing as an influential global leader and lifted its profile as an important investment and travel destination.
