    Brazil, Russia, India, China & South Africa, called the BRICS countries, is a political organization that will double in combined economic growth in the next three years totaling an economy of $500 billion. With the exception of the more well established markets of China and India, Brazil, Russia and South Africa are just now emerging onto the Global Marketplace ‘radar screen’ of companies everywhere when deciding where to market their goods and services. Currently the BRICS countries are responsible for over 50% of global economic growth in the last decade. Discussions are now being conducted on a special new currency for the BRICS countries. A group of experts from government and the private sector will debate, interact and present their knowledge and perspectives on what are the best methods for successful bilateral trade and investment in this booming BRICS marketplace. Best markets, targeted industry sectors, cultural nuances and governmental support for each of the BRICS nations will be discussed and debated in an interactive, round-table format that will be open to all of the conference attendees.
