- SAIIA Podcast Episode 6: South Africa and the BRICS
- In March 2012, South Africa attended its second summit as a member of the exclusive group of emerging economies known as the BRICS. While itâ€™s Africaâ€™s biggest economy, many wonder what makes South Africa eligible to join Brazil, Russia, India and China as a member of this influential club of developing markets. The head of SAIIAâ€™s Economic Diplomacy Programme Catherine Grant speaks to Talk Radio 702â€™s Redi Tlhabi about what South Africaâ€™s brings to the BRICS grouping and whether there are other economies with much more to offer. SAIIA would like to thank Talk Radio 702 (www.702.co.za) for making this podcast available.
